NUUP Spa Playa Mujeres

A vast Cancun spa specializing in the details

An amenity highlight at a resort swimming in them, NUUP Spa Playa Mujeres is the place to get re-centered or completely lost for a few hours. But before an aesthetician even has a chance to extend one hand, a sense of calm comes over you in the space. Polished woods and soft lighting do their part. So, too, do the muted blues and grays adorning the walls.

Spread across three levels and more than 38,000 square feet, the grand facility includes lounges, a hydrotherapy circuit, a beauty salon and gym. Massages and other body services are carried out in the 18 treatment rooms (including four spa suites). “Nuup” translates to “cosmic connection” in Mayan. It makes sense then that a few hours spent at the ATELIER Playa Mujeres spa feels like an out-of-this-world experience.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Sure, you’ll find your traditional services (Swedish massage, body exfoliation) on the NUUP Spa menu, but where it separates itself is with thoughtful options like the Calming After Sun Treatment (a damaged-skin reliever) and A Relaxing Wake Up (a green-juice-powered day starter).
  • Of all the services, the most popular might be the hot stone treatment, which consists of 80 minutes of a therapist mixing firm hands and river rocks to ease body tension.
  • Start your spa journey with a hydrotherapy circuit, a four-part session (shower, steam room, sauna and Ludic pool) that is known to do wonders for the immune system.
  • The Cancun spa curates an impressive roster of facials. From an 80-minute purifier to a 90-minute facial that uses diamond powder, there’s a way to polish up any profile.
  • Float in the tree-rimmed outdoor pool for a bit of tranquility before or after your treatment.

Things to Know

  • If you aren’t sure which service to try, connect with a spa butler who’ll advise you on something that best fits your lifestyle and needs of the day.
  • NUUP Spa Playa Mujeres is the first spa in Latin America to use OakWorks’ ergonomic chairs with the ABC (Adjustable Breast Comfort) System.
  • When it’s time for a night out at the resort, schedule a hair appointment, manicure or pedicure at the beauty salon.
  • Attached to the salon, the Bridal Dress-up Lounge is a space for the bride and her maids that features a fitting room, massage chair, private bathroom and more.
  • The state-of-the-art gym, equipped with the latest Technogym equipment, is on the first floor.
