Yes, and then heated cotton sheets soaked in herbs are wrapped around the body to draw out the toxins. That’s exactly what Kinan Spa at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa on Mexico’s Riviera Maya offers in their just launched package, Healthy life, Happy Heart.
Inspired by Mayan heritage, this 3-day treatment cannot get more exotic than this. The spa resort itself lies between thick acres of jungle and an award-winning beach. Interestingly, each of the 63 rooms and suites overlook the turquoise ocean.
So here’s is what you are upto, day by day.
