Four Seasons Heats Up the Night

Couples indulgences make for romantic moments

By: Dawna L. Robertson

Summer nights are heating up at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita's Apuane Spa with the help of a new romantic menu of nighttime spa experiences for couples. Combining unique and relaxing treatments with picturesque settings and gourmet dining, these "after dark" couples indulgences make the most of Mexico's warm, tropical evenings. The result? It’s an ideal way to celebrate love beneath the stars.

"The resort is particularly stunning at night," noted Paul Telford, spa manager. "This new nighttime menu gives couples a chance to experience the resort from this vantage point by allowing them to absorb its natural beauty, and stellar amenities and services under a romantic canopy of stars and moonlight."

The new Tamai Pool and private poolside cabanas create an exclusive setting for dinner and a relaxing couple's Watsu massage under a moonlit sky. Performed in a heated pool, the 50-minute Watsu massage guides guests through a series of flowing, yoga-like movements and stretches to deeply soothe, especially acute and chronic pain.

Following the treatment, couples retreat to a private poolside cabana for a butler-served candlelit dinner. As a special “desert,” couples are invited to cuddle on the day bed in the private cabana or take a refreshing dip in the private plunge pool. The four-hour “Tamai Summer Nights” experience is $1,000, excluding tax and service charge.

For a more casual, romantic experience, the “Evening Under The Stars” includes an 80-minute Thai Herbal Therapy massage and oceanside picnic. The 3.5-hour indulgence is $750, excluding tax and service change.

For a truly “tasteful” option, the 31/2-hour “Like Water For Chocolate” covers an evening of rich chocolate experiences and soothing water treatments at the resort’s Apuane Spa. In the privacy of the suite, couples enjoy a delicious 120-minute treatment that includes a chocolate scrub, body wrap and facial followed by a hot chocolate stone massage.

The evening concludes on the private terrace where couples are served champagne and a selection of fresh fruits together with a gourmet chocolate fondue. The price is $900, excluding tax and service charge.

With 117 guestrooms and 28 suites, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is located within the 1,500-acre master-planned Punta Mita Resort development. Amenities include two exquisite pools, an 18-hole championship golf course, full-service Apuane Spa, three restaurants, tennis courts, Kids For All Seasons program and a cultural center.
