Guest Blog Post: A Day in the Spa at Secrets Maroma Beach

Today on the blog we have the pleasure of featuring a guest blog post by the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun e-concierge, Romina Pizzuti! Romina wrote about her fabulous and well-deserved spa day at the Secrets Maroma Spa by Pevonia. Read on to learn all about Romina’s spa experiences!

Every detail is picture-perfect at the Secrets Maroma Spa by Pevonia.

“A lot of people talk about our resort–the beach, food, entertainment, staff, etc.and how great everything is during their stay. As employees that have the pleasure of interacting with guests on a daily basis, we are lucky to occasionally get the opportunity to try out some of the services offered ourselves!

Our spa staff is always there to guide you through your day of pampering relaxation.

This was the time for me to try our Secrets Maroma Spa by Pevonia, and I wanted to experience the facilities the same way our guests do. When I arrived at the spa, I was immediately greeted by Martha and Carla (both of them with huge smiles on their faces), and guided to the Hydrotherapy Circuit. I learned that this type of treatment is good for relaxation and to maintain a person’s state of health. Hydrotherapy is also excellent for reducing or relieving sudden or long-lasting pain.

Hydrotherapy can work wonders for every body!

After an hour of complete relaxation, the spa valet came to take me back so I could take a quick shower, where I treated myself to some of the Pevonia products they have there to sample. Next I was off to the Relaxation Room. She fixed me up a flavored tea and gave me a hot pillow for my neck (oh what a delight that was!).

Gabriela, the therapist, entered the room and asked me if I  was ready… Was I? Of course I was! She took me to a single cabin and began with a Swedish Massage. I must say, I have had that type of massage before, but her hands were extra soft! Everything was just perfect!

I felt the tension release as soon as she started the massage; working in an office all day can make your muscles a little stiff. She then explained to me how important it is for everyone to get massages for their health, the different types of massages and how they make recommendations depending on the client’s needs.  I am tempted to try the reflexology or aromatherapy massages next.

After she was done with my massage, it was time for my facial. She evaluated my skin and recommended an Elasto Firm Facial, which was very soothing and contains Marine Collagen and Marine Elastin to help with skin’s firming, toning and hydration.

Gabriela explained that Pevonia Botanica was the first company to develop a spa skincare line exclusively for elite spas and professional aestheticians and that the products are made of natural ingredients. They have a variety of products to offer and one of her favorites is the Intensifier Collagen & Myoxy Caviar.

Everything is perfect from check-in to check-out!

After a gentle facial massage, my wonderful Spa Day was over. I left the Spa completely satisfied and relaxed; it actually put me in a different mood!

As I was walking out the door, I saw a bride getting ready for her big day. I asked her how she was feeling, and even though she was a little nervous, she mentioned that the staff helped calm her down. The staff members all have so much experience with brides and understand how important it is for everything to go perfectly. I complimented her hairdo, which was fabulous, and off I went.

Both receptionists stood up and asked me how my services were. They sincerely care about customer satisfaction. The first thing I said to them was that I’ll be back!”

Friendly faces make the Spa by Pevonia feel like home.

If this sounds like heaven to you, be sure to book yourself at Spa Day at the Secrets Maroma Spa by Pevonia during your stay! We can’t wait to see you!

Asier Illarramendi with a friend (L) and Iker Muniaín (R) at Secrets Aura Cozumel.

Last week, Spanish footballers Asier Illarramendi and Iker Muniaín, friends and former teammates, visited Cozumel to relax in the sun during their off season. Illarramendi, currently a defensive midfielder with Real Madrid, and Muniaín, a left winger who plays for Athletic Bilbao, took advantage of tons of activities and adventures; from swimming with dolphins to a trip to the Punta Sur Ecological Park.

Both stars had a blast on and off the resort! Muniaín raved that “Cozumel is a beautiful island and the view from my room was spectacular.” Illarramendi enthused that his stay was “relaxing and enjoyable” and he will “definitely be returning to Secrets Aura Cozumel.”

We can’t wait for your return!
