SE Spa
The signature SE Spa of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is a sensory experience. Purify your body and relax your mind with a seven-phase Water Ceremony, followed by a treatment inspired by the healing arts of ancient Mexico.
Signature treatments The Grand Cora massage is a highly energetic massage that stimulates the sensorial perception through a ritual of sounds of natural instruments. It eliminates nervous tension with the application of warm ginger oil, which restores emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellness.
The Ancestral Stone Massage is an ancient therapy using one of the most prized minerals of the pre-Hispanic Mexican cultures: obsidian. Due to its healing properties, it is often used in traditional indigenous medicine. In this treatment, obsidian is combined with a deep river-rock massage to relax contracted muscles. The heat of the stones relieves the most fatigued and tense areas of the body, as well as balances the energy of the chakras and vital centers.
The Xocolatl treatment evokes the spirit with a fusion of aromas which have antidepressant and energetic effects. Begin with a stimulating exfoliation of coffee beans followed by a chocolate body mask. The mask will release endorphins and improve your state of mind.
