Massage therapies at The Spa at Esperanza range from traditional Swedish and deep tissue to a technique dubbed the Shared Hearts Massage — therapists work in tandem, switching guests halfway through the treatment — offered exclusively to couples. The spa, part of the Auberge spa collection, offers three branded signature treatments, ranging from the Auberge Attunement, a blend of massage techniques, to the Auberge Head to Toe, a “firm and nurturing” massage complemented by a scalp treatment, foot reflexology and warm towels. Esperanza’s unique massage treatments generally feature locally or indigenously inspired ingredients and techniques. For example, the Tropical Essence massage uses firm pressure and essential oils, while the Sun Baked treatment is the spa’s take on a hot stone massage. Other treatments include Thai, a Cuatro Manos, Dos Corazones treatment (four-hands massage) and a Cabaña Lime Massage, where therapists use lime compresses during the treatment to rejuvenate sunburnt skin.
