I’m back in New York from the white sandy beaches of Mexico with some more great stories to share with you! (Missed part one? Catch up here!) One the second day of my stay at the Paradisus La Perla in Playa del Carmen, I was given the opportunity to enjoy a deep tissue massage at the Yhi Spa (pronounced like “G”).
Walking into the spa was like a dream—the scents, the sounds, the friendly and prompt staff—it was as if I was the only customer they were tending to, which is such a nice feeling to have! I was directed to the changing room, where I was given a big comfy robe and sandals to wear, and then had the option of using the steam room, the sauna or the pool, prior to my massage. After a few minutes of some relaxation time, I was brought to my suite where I met my wonderful masseuse, and experienced one of the best massages I’ve ever had! It was relaxing, soothing and all of the knots that I had in my upper back (trust me, there are many) were suddenly released. It was such an amazing experience, and I wish I could go back. I didn’t want it to end!
The spa at the resort offers a variety of massages, facials, hair treatments manicures and pedicures, and is honestly one of the most serene places that I have ever been. Now that I am back in New York, I’m wishing I could be back at Yhi getting another massage. Wishful thinking!
