Though the Mayan-inspired treatments are lauded, Travel + Leisure gushed about the hydrothermal area: “The essential indulgence is the hour-long Thermal Experience—a five-step, guided hydrotherapy circuit. The progression alternates hot and cold to stimulate circulation (the order: steam room, ice room, sauna, cold shower, Jacuzzi, and freezing-cold soaking tub). Facilities are separated by gender (both men’s and women’s sides feature the entire circuit, for privacy), and the length of time spent at each step is completely customizable.”
Nizuc's 3,000SF Hydrothermal Area was designed and built by Design for Leisure in collaboration with ESPA and architect Alejandro Escudero.
