A nature-inspired Cancun retreat
11 Treatment Rooms
From milk baths to healing Mayan ingredients, Spa Aqua at Live Aqua Cancun All Inclusive Adults Only provides serene treatments for a dreamy experience.
One of Cancun’s most beloved hotels, Live Aqua is renowned for its contemporary design elements, chic style and deliciously epicurean restaurants. Similarly, its onsite spa blends the hotel’s love of aromatherapy, style and allure. Spa Aqua comes decked out in a calming blend of soft blues, aquamarines and beiges, and the lighting design, in a mix of blue and warm orange beams, adds a contemporary component to the space.
Divided into men’s and women’s areas with spaces for relaxation and hydrotherapy, this spa is intended as a retreat for giving in to the senses and calming the mind — an idyllic way to get into the Cancun vacation mindset.
Despite its smaller size, Spa Aqua has an extensive list of luxurious services and facilities for a day of indulgence. The hydrotherapy circuit has everything you need to simultaneously relax and invigorate the body before a massage or treatment. You’ll find the basics, like a sauna, a steam room and pressure showers, plus soothing extras like a temperature contrast lagoon, hydroreflexology and eucalyptus inhalation to awaken the senses.
Beautiful locker areas provide a great place to get ready before and after your massage, and the Cancun spa also has a beauty salon for manis, pedis, hairstyling and more. For your massage, choose between one of the treatment rooms or the peaceful beachfront palapa.
The Natural Exfoliating Treatments
Among its many treatments, Spa Aqua has an array of options that utilizes calming natural ingredients to exfoliate and hydrate the skin. The Chocolate-Mint Scrub, for instance, promises to restore vitality and stimulate blood flow, while increasing energy and softening the skin. Pairing two ingredients native to the Yucatan Peninsula, where Cancun is located, the Coconut-Chocolate Wrap uses natural serotonins to decrease stress and depression by freeing the body’s endorphins.
The 30-minute Tropical Exfoliation employs the properties of mango and passion fruit for an anti-aging treatment that gets rid of toxins, making the skin smoother and more energized. Caffeine addicts can indulge in the 80-minute Coffee Ritual, a wrap incorporating coffee and seaweed extracts followed by the application of jasmine lotion or essential oils.
The massage menu at Spa Aqua includes intriguing methods from all over the globe. Whether you seek an experience based on ancient Mayan ingredients or techniques originating across the world in Southeast Asia, you’ll find just the right massage for your stay in Cancun.
The Soffio D’Polinesia option utilizes traditional Tahitian monoi oil, a mix of the tiare flower and coconut oil enriched with ylang ylang, ideal for hydrating the skin and stimulating blood circulation. The Samumpray experience uses soft movements with a warm herb compress (made with lavender, ginger, tamarind leaf and bay leaf) to relieve muscle aches and tensions, followed by a massage with essential Asian oils.
To sharpen the senses and create a sense of enlightenment, the Candle Massage offers full relaxation through soy wax and natural oils heated to a toasty temperature.
