Playa del Carmen Spas | The Best Spa Treatments In Playa Del Carmen

Sharing is caring!

There are no shortage of Playa del Carmen Spas that’s for sure. But with so many how do you pick the best spa in Playa del Carmen? In this post, I’ve rounded up my top spas in Playa del Carmen for you based on my personal experience using their services, the price, and of course the overall experience. There are many Playa del Carmen spas I’ve not included, mostly because their prices are ridiculous. They are more inline with USA pricing and therefore not somewhere local people visit!

I’m on a mission to visit as many Playa del Carmen spas as possible so I will continue to add to this post. If you know of a spa in Playa del Carmen that you think I should visit contact me and let me know. Also, I personally travel to Cozumel when I can to visit the magical ladies at Clinica Lalik who do incredible work on my skin and body. It’s like having botox and lipo without needles or knives!

Okomo Spa Playa del Carmen

This is my personal favorite spa in Playa del Carmen. I’m a member here so I try and go at least once a week. They have a hydro room which includes a sauna, steam room, cold showers, cold plunge pool, and then a pool full of other water jets that help to relax me after a week of sitting at my computer!

The staff are all super friendly and helpful, soft drinks are included, I recommend trying one of the tea infusions. If you are just coming for the day then it’s actually worth booking a massage or another treatment as the use of the spa is included and you can be in there for up to 2 hours.

Is it the best spa I’ve ever been to? No, but it’s the best spa in Playa del Carmen I’ve been to.

If you are local to Playa del Carmen or a digital nomad planning on staying for a few months then it’s worth enquiring about their spa memberships. The memberships can range from 1 month to a full year and include spa treatments such as massages and facials, yoga classes, use of the gym and rooftop pool area, plus 20% off all services.

I’ve had several of the spa treatments in Playa del Carmen and all have been wonderful. Before and after your spa treatment you are seated in the relaxation room. After your treatment, they will bring you a drink and you can stay there until you are ready to leave… bliss.

Treatments on Offer:

  • Manicures and pedicures
  • Body treatments
  • Facials
  • Massages
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Yoga

Cost:

For access to the hydrotherapy for 2 hours, it costs around $400 pesos. I would recommend booking a massage which will give you the same access to the hydrotherapy. Prices start at $800 pesos for a 30-minute massage.

GH Spa Playa del Carmen

Oh, how I love GH Spa. It doesn’t have the hydrotherapy, but it is still one of my top spas in Playa del Carmen. If I’m ever in the need of a quick pamper session I check their monthly offers. You can often get a facial and a massage for around $1000 pesos when they do offers. The first time I had a facial there I think I fell asleep! Seriously, not only was my skin glowing but I felt so relaxed I think I went home and slept for 10 hours.

Price-wise they are not as expensive as the fancy spas within the hotels, but they also aren’t very cheap like some of the more local places. I find them pitched perfectly in the middle. You pay a little extra for the incredible quality and service, without paying silly tourist prices.

Treatments on Offer:

  • Manicures and pedicures
  • Body treatments
  • Facials
  • Massages
  • Waxing
  • Makeup

Cost:

prices vary and they almost always have some special offers on so it’s best to get in touch with them (English or Spanish) via Facebook

Opening Hours:

Monday to Saturday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm & 3:00pm – 8:00pm

The Best Massage Playa del Carmen

If you are looking for a good massage in Playa del Carmen then other than the places I have already recommended above (who are all amazing) I know several local people who give amazing massages and will come out to visit your home, or in some cases you can visit them.

They are all people I know personally and I can vouch for each of them as trustworthy, honest, and offer amazing service.

Adrian – Mayan Massage

Adrian offers traditional Mayan massage, this guy is the real deal when it comes to massages in Playa del Carmen, he is my top pick. Each session lasts for one hour and a half and he comes to you in your home or hotel.

The cost is by donation, with a minimum donation of $400 pesos. This is a ridiculously low price as Adrian wants everyone to be able to access his service. I would suggest paying a minimum of $700 pesos, more if you can afford it. 

What is Traditional Mayan massage therapy?

As Adrian states, Mayan massage is perfect for anyone, especially people that have joint pain, back problems, or stress fatigue. It involves very deep tissue stimulation and stretches. Mayan massage helps the accumulated energy in the body to flow out, so the divine energy can flow in.

Huitzilin Sanación Integral

I have no idea how you pronounce this, so don’t even ask!

But this company belongs to a very dear friend of mine Gisela. She speaks perfect English so you can send her a message in English or Spanish. With the treatments that Gisela offers it’s more of an energetic massage treatment, so don’t go expecting a deep tissue massage.

The treatments are around 2 hours and include a lot of energetic work, crystal therapy, body brushing, and singing bowls. Honestly, it’s a very deep energetic treatment and I swear I don’t understand where the time goes. I go into such a deep state of relaxation and openness that it always takes me a while to come around after. Talk about blissed out!

Treatments are done in her home and you will need to book an appointment with 24 hours’ notice. She also does Mayan readings which are super interesting. Please be sure you let her know I sent you!

Cost varies but starts from $600 pesos for 1 hour

Book your trip now

Are you ready to book your trip?  To help you get the best deals and service here are the companies that I personally use to book all of my travel online. I always shop around before booking anything, but these are my tried and tested starting places.

  • Skyscanner – I’m a bit fan of Skyscanner, it is who I use to book all of my flights. I often will check other like Google Flights or Momodo, but I always go here first and it is who I book 99% of my flights with. 
  • Booking.com – I LOVE booking.com especially when I can book and cancel free up until a certain point, mostly because my plans are forever changing. It’s easy to use and has one of the widest selections. 
  • Airbnb – I’m not a huge user of Airbnb, but sometimes I do like to use it, and I ALWAYS check it before I book anything else. You can get some really cool places to stay here, and it is especially good in places like Cuba. If you don’t have an account and you click on this link then you will get $36 off your first booking.
  • Hostelworld – If you are looking for hostels then this is a great place to check first. They often have additional places that you won’t find on Bookin.com.
  • Agoda – Although I don’t use it as much as booking.com, Agonda is especially good if you are traveling in Asia as they really do dominate there. 
  • Worldpackers – If you want to travel on the cheap and save money on accommodation then you need Worldpackers in your life. You can read more about it here. If you click this link to sign up and use the code CLAIRESITCHYFEET then you can get a 40% discount on your membership! 
  • Book a Way – If you are traveling in Asia and want to pre-book your transportation then bookaway.com is a fantastic site to do so. They have buses, trains, and cars.
  • RentalCars – Looking to rent a. car while you are away? I always book through Rental Cars as they do a search of all of the big sites and find the best deals. 
  • Welcome Pickups – Very occasionally getting from the airport to my accommodation is a total pain in the butt, or I’m traveling in a group and it makes sense to arrange a pickup. When I do I use Welcome pickups.
  • World Nomads – If you are looking for flexible travel insurance then it’s World Nomads all the way. I wrote all about insurance here if you want a more thorough review. 
  • SafetyWing – AsI’m a Digital Nomad and not moving around quite so much anymore I personally use SafetyWing now for my health insurance. I wrote a full review here
  • Viatour – Sometimes it can be a little expensive, but I like Viatour for somethings, especially if you can get a discount code! It’s also great for inspiration. 
  • Klook – If you are traveling in Asia, then Klook is great! You can book all kinds of tours, activities, and train tickets, plus they even have sim cards and WiFi.
