Innovation Meets Sophistication: Gem Spa

Sponsored content: Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort Becomes Spa Destination

The renowned Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun Resort & Spa has added even more luster to its Five Diamond standing with the addition of a new 40,000 square-foot gem-inspired spa. The resort recently added the “Gem Spa” as a brand new annex to the property in August 2010, creating a spa getaway destination within the oceanfront 602-suite resort.  

The awe-inspiring spa features treatments utilizing chakra-balancing gems, a unique ten-step hydrotherapy ritual, sophisticated design elements and luxurious spa amenities. A flowing spa design integrates the use of rich woods, luminous Italian mosaics, sand marble and expansive water features over black granite.

Hydrotherapy Ritual
This flowing design comes to life with the spa’s ten-step Hydrotherapy Ritual, which detoxifies skin through contrasts of warm and cool temperatures combined with high and low water pressures. The healing effects are achieved with a guided “circuit” through an aromatherapy steam room, multi-jet shower, clay steam room, ice room, sauna, rain shower, whirlpool, lagoon pool, a “pool of sensation” filled with bubble and floor geysers, water cascades and cervical neck jets and is completed in a relaxation lounge area. The ritual is complimentary and is recommended prior to treatments. 

Gem Therapy Treatments
The spa’s gem therapy treatments are inspired by the natural healing elements of gems from three distinct regions of the world – the Mayan Riviera, the South Pacific and Asia, and the Baltic. Various gem stones indigenous to these regions such as tiger’s eye, amber, amethyst, jade and obsidian are utilized to balance the seven chakras located throughout the body. Amber, which is known in the Baltic region for its restorative and negative energy-fighting properties, works to boost the appearance of skin in the Amber Amulet Ritual. Jade, considered the “Sovereign of Harmony” in Mayan culture, is utilized as a relaxation stone in the Mayan Jade Four Hands Massage. A selection of signature treatments integrates the use of diamond dust including the Diamond Dust Body Exfoliation and Massage.

Gem Spa Treatment Rooms
The Gem Spa features 26 treatment rooms including ten multi-functional rooms, six massage and facial rooms and five couples’ treatment rooms. It also features two spa master suites with hydro massage tubs and color therapy, one VIP spa couples suite with a double Jacuzzi tub and steam room and two shiatsu and Thai massage rooms. For those who wish to enjoy a complete wellness getaway, 20 exclusive all-suite accommodations are located adjacent to the spa.  Guests who reserve these accommodations will have complimentary access to the spa’s amenities as well as special aromatherapy essences and Thierry Mugler bath products in their suite.

Gem Spa Café, Salon, Boutique and Fitness Classes
In addition, the spa features a Gem Spa Café with a menu of gourmet, healthy culinary selections. A full service salon offers services for both and women including hair styling, manicures and pedicures. It also includes luxury pedicure thrones and special areas dedicated to foot massages. In the Gem Spa boutique, guests will find gem stones to use for healing or adornment as well as beauty and skin care products from Natura Bissé, Decléor, Germaine de Capuccini and indigenous local products. A dedicated fitness program offers guided meditation and group yoga lessons.
