An Unforgettable Wellness Week in Paradise

May 17, 2019 Uncategorized

When I got an email from introducing me to their Wellness Week program and asking if I would come to check it out, I thought I must have been dreaming. Nestled in the gorgeous Playa Mujeres, Mexico I could tell that The Beloved was a complete paradise away from the concrete New York City life I am used to. To visit this adults-only boutique hotel right on the Caribbean Ocean would be a treat any time of year but to make the trip even sweeter, I got to visit during the beautifully curated Wellness Week and it would turn out to be a heart-altering experience I will never forget.

On March 23rd I got to the Beloved Playa Mujeres not really knowing what to expect. I knew from all of the information online that it was voted one of the best all-inclusive resorts in the world as well as in Mexico but I always find that you never really know what that means until you’re there. The moment I entered the lobby I was overcome with complete joy as the entire facility is infused with the beautiful scent of a White Tea that smells like a delicate flower as it pours through every corner of the property. I was immediately greeted by the staff with a cold drink and a warm smile, followed by one of those hot pillows with herbs infused in them being draped around my neck. Can you feel just how heavenly it was to be welcomed like that?!

Well loves, it didn’t stop there. In fact the entire time I was at The Beloved Playa Mujeres I was taken care of as if I was part of the family. I would walk-up to one of their many restaurants and the moment I said my room number the entire staff knew all of my food sensitivities for my health and made sure to help me navigate the menu with that in mind. Every time I saw a staff member they would ask how I was, how I was feeling, if I needed anything and end our conversations with my new favorite phrase, “es un placer”, which means “it’s my pleasure”.

The fact that I got to visit during their Wellness Week was such a special experience because they had thoughtfully curated so many activities for guests to choose from. I knew right away that I wanted to do the Chamanic Uplifting Massage and it was everything I wanted it to be. It took place in the beautiful Wellness Palapa which is right on the beach close to the waves and healing ocean breeze. They set intentions for us, massaged us with homemade herbal remedies, saged us and made me feel so deeply loved. And this was just the first activity! After that I also participated in a class to make my own spa products as well as a butterfly ceremony and we enjoyed all of the different theme nights that they had as well.

Over the next several days I tried so many things that lifted my spirit, restored me to my core and gave me a fresh perspective on things. I even took an art class and painted the picture of Frida Kahlo above. It was a total blast!

One of my greatest concerns when I travel is around food and what I am going to eat because I have so many sensitivities due to my health that it can be challenging in a lot of places. That was not the case at all at The Beloved. With everything being all-inclusive I was able to keep myself nourished and they made sure to always have foods that I could eat with my auto-immune paleo lifestyle. It was so delicious and I even find myself missing some of the meals I had there now that I am back!

Along with trying out all of the amazing offerings that were a part of wellness week, I knew I had to check out their spa. If you’ve been following me for a while you might already know that I am a huge beauty product junkie and love a good trip to the spa. Loves, I am not exaggerating when I tell you that this was hands down one of the best spa experiences I have ever had in my LIFE. Every guest got a complimentary Hydrotherapy session as a gift just for staying at The Beloved and it was incredible. They take you through a journey with different types of water experiences. Everything from a beautiful limestone salt room, to a plunge pool that’s freezing cold, a sauna and a pool that is so peaceful and massages your body with jets of water at the end. It’s such a special experience! Then I got a ritual massage that completely had me melt in to the massage table. The loveliest part of it all was that they are so thoughtful about everything so they started the treatment off saying a blessing, showcasing special stones and explaining every component. I was in heaven.

I know a lot of you who follow me on Instagram were excited about trying out a Wellness Week on your own one day and you’re in luck! I found out that there are two other times that they will be curating this program in 2019. You can attend Wellness Week during August 11th – 14th or December 8th – 11th. Please let me know if you decide to go and maybe I will have to find a way back there as well. This trip was one of the most special trips I have had in years and I can’t wait to visit The Beloved Playa Mujeres again soon.

Thank you for reading.
