Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Puebla

Relaxation amid colonial charm

Nestled within the colonial city of Puebla, Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Puebla offers experiences to root you in your historic surroundings, all while finding a sense of tranquility.

More than four centuries of knowledge and healing practices using native flora inspire the nature-infused treatments here. Curated services incorporate traditional salves, such as healing infusions, volcanic ash and thermal water cures into the massages, facials and body treatments on offer at this intimate and luxurious spa.

Opt for a treatment from the Sense Journeys collection for a deeper dive into local tradition (a guided jog through the city’s subterranean tunnels and a soothing leg wrap) or simply relax with a massage followed by lounging at the rooftop pool and taking in some of the most scenic views around.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Indulge without missing out on Puebla’s storied past with a treatment from the Sense Journeys collection. The Talavera Journey begins with a tour of Uriarte Talavera’s workshop to see how the city’s iconic blue tiles are made, followed by a massage using heated plates of the mineral-rich material to ease sore muscles.
  • Unlike most nail salons, the manicure and pedicure room here boasts impressive vistas over the volcanoes that surround Puebla.
  • The hotel’s rooftop pool is just steps from the spa. Stop by before or after your treatment to soak up some rays and the city’s jaw-dropping vistas.
  • In keeping with the rest of the hotel, the spa’s treatment rooms are designed using luxurious materials, like contemporary Villeroy & Boch sinks and Talavera accessories.
  • Puebla’s rich history of herbal healing is honored at the Puebla spa to sumptuous effect. Volcanic Mud Care, for example, uses locally sourced volcanic mud for an exfoliating scrub and calming wrap, followed by an application of tepezcohuite body butter, an ancient remedy for sensitive skin.

Things to Know

  • Due to regulations for this historic building, the spa doesn't have a sauna or steam room.
  • The spa's more modern treatments utilize renowned skin care brands, such as Evidens de Beauté and Maison Caulières.
  • There are just three treatment rooms at Sense spa, so be sure to book your spot in advance.

The Treatments

  • The healing power of plants is on full display in the Essential Remedies Massage, an aromatic service that combines nutrient-rich herbs, such as basil, orange blossom and rosemary, to create a rich sensory experience.
  • Lights of the Seasons body treatment transports you through the yearly cycle with a fig, bergamot and rose body scrub; a face, hand and foot massage; and even cut-grass-perfumed towels.
  • For the ultimate spa escape, book the five-hour Rejuvenating Journey. This over-the-top experience begins with a customized fitness session, followed by a Volcanic Mud Cure Treatment, the Essential Remedies Massage and an anti-aging facial — you will emerge a new person.
  • Tired after exploring the city? Indulge in the generations-old Ancient Cloth Ritual and have your legs wrapped in rosemary- and cinnamon-infused towels to comfort your aching muscles.

The Facilities

  • Take in the scenery during a morning or evening workout at the 24-hour gym. Choose from treadmills, stationary bikes, free weights and more in the fifth-floor facility.
