Rosewood to offer ‘cultural treatments’ at its new Mexican spa

The spa at a newly opened Rosewood hotel in Mexico has launched with a unique selling point – offering guests a treatment menu which reflects the culture of the historic city of Puebla in which it is located.

Sense, A Rosewood Spa at Rosewood Puebla – which opens on 25 May – will look to immerse guests in the nature and culture of the city, with treatments designed to honour the history and legends of the destination.

Treatments and therapies will be inspired by indigenous recipes and ingredients dating back 450 years, merging the traditions of Puebla’s Hispanic and pre-Hispanic cultures.

Signature treatments will include the Volcanic Mud Cure, which will utilise the nutrient rich minerals from Puebla’s four surrounding volcanoes.

The Talavera Massage has been inspired by the city’s traditional hand-made pottery and incorporates mineralising clay and Onix stones to balance overall health through a combination of relaxation, deep muscle relief, and hot and cold therapy

The 1,350sq ft (125sq m) spa has four treatment rooms and outdoor areas for morning rituals, yoga and meditation. There is also a fully equipped health and fitness suite.

Housed in a collection of historical buildings from different eras surrounding a picturesque, private courtyard, the Rosewood Puebla hotel has 78 rooms and suites.

As well as the spa, facilities include three dining venues, event space and a rooftop bar with views of Puebla’s historic downtown.

Located 75 miles south of Mexico City, at the foot of the active Popocatépetl volcano, the city of Puebla is a UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its colonial architecture and colourful Talavera pottery.

The hotel is Rosewood’s fourth property in Mexico. The group is owned by Hong Kong-based New World Development.
