7 Tips for Great Spa day

July, 2018

Vacations are meant for unwinding, and nothing says ‘relaxation’ like a serene day at Moon Palace Resorts’ Awe Spa® filled with unadulterated pampering. Whether it’s a calming massage to melt away your stresses or a quenching facial treatment that leaves you fresh-faced and revitalized, a trip to the spa should be a required part of any vacation.

To help you make the most of your visit to Awe Spa® on your vacation, we’ve compiled a list of spa day tips to help you prepare for yours, and make sure you have the most fun, relaxing, and enjoyable experience possible!

Think About What You Want

When booking your vacation spa day, it’s best to plan out what you would like to have done ahead of time. Nothing will spoil the start of your relaxing day like having to choose from a gazillion different services, some that you may have never even heard of!

Are you in desperate need of a pampering pedicure or is a deep tissue massage more your style? Think about what your dream spa day consists of and have a list of desired services in mind when booking or arriving at your appointment.

At Awe Spa®, it’s easy to choose from their impressive array of stress-relieving treatments, as well as anti-aging techniques, designed to soothe the body and free the mind.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

One of the biggest mistakes that first time spa goers make is not drinking enough water beforehand, which can lead to dizziness, headaches and muscle aches, especially if you’re getting a massage or going into a steam room or sauna.

An added benefit of keeping hydrated is that drinking water before and directly after skincare spa treatments is thought to help maximize their effectiveness, leaving your skin looking fresher, longer.

Try Something New

If you’re a spa-day aficionado, you probably have a good idea of what services you want before scheduling an appointment, but while on vacation, why not try something new and exciting?

During your stay at Moon Palace Resorts, you can indulge in a number of unique treatments including a chocolate wrap that moisturizes, nourishes, and softens skin, while enhancing circulation. Or show your feet some love with their one-of-a-kind Fish Spa that uses authentic Garra Rufa Fish to exfoliate and cleanse your feet.

Communicate During Your Session

Communication is key in most areas of life, and this is also true when it comes to getting the most out of your spa day massage.

Are the lights too bright? Is the room too cold? Pressure not enough? Speak up! You may feel like a bossy ingrate at first, but trust us, your masseuse will appreciate the feedback. 

Also, before your massage service begins, let your therapist know if you’re feeling particularly stressed or sore in a certain spot so they can focus their attention on those trouble areas. 

Skip the Pre-Spa Burger and Fries

Nothing’s worse than feeling bloated or gassy right before you’re about to get a deep tissue massage. So, avoid discomfort or (god forbid) an embarrassing bodily function mishap by eating a light meal before your spa day.

It’s also a good idea to check if your spa day includes any food, especially if you have a full day of pampering in front of you. Feeling hangry will take away from the relaxing experience, which is the whole point!

Choose Spa Day Companions Wisely

At Awe Spa®, you have your pick of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments that are perfect for two, but think long and hard before you invite just anyone along to your spa day.

While a relaxing day getting pampered may be perfect for you and your lifelong bestie, inviting a co-worker or (yikes!) your mother-in-law, may result in more stress and less relaxation.

This is your vacation and you deserve a little R&R, darn it! So, make sure whomever you bring along vibes with you and your idea of unwinding. And when in doubt, opt for a spa day for one – it’ll be better than having a Debbie downer along for the ride.

Leave Everything at the Door

One of the most important tips for making the most of your spa day is to relax! You can indulge in every spa treatment known to man but if your mind is racing throughout, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to reap the rewards.

When you step into your appointment, make a conscious decision to leave everything on your mind at the door and enter the spa with calmness and clarity. Your treatment is not the time to address your thoughts or worries, because after all, your mind needs to relax as much as your body does.

Best resort and customer service!

Everything about this resort was perfect. The customer service is out of this world. I would like to thank Vanessa (hostess) and Raul Yepez (server). However, my family and I loved Agustin Escalante. He always remembered us and treated us so nicely.

We love it

Me and my wife spent our honeymoon in the Moon Palace in 2004. We fell in love with it. We have been going with our daughters. In June 2019, we went with my family and my wife sister's family and stayed at the Grand. It is huge and so much fun.
