Awash in a Mediterranean ambiance, this open-air spa inspires a journey of self-discovery.
The spectacular Alvadora Spa at the Royal Palms Resort celebrates the Mediterranean atmosphere of the historical resort known for its romantic air and lush, private grounds. Open-air walkways lined with oleander, bougainvillea and hibiscus invite spa guests to revel in the relaxing and healing benefits of the natural beauty. Custom designed to match the intimate feel of the hotel, the two-level spa is a harmonious blend of authentic hand-made Mexican tiles, natural stone, aged timbers, custom furnishings, hues of terra cottas and mustards, private gardens, fountains and fireplaces.
Each decorated with individual color palettes, the seven treatment rooms have a private balcony or patio. For a romantic treatment for two, don’t miss the signature Acqua Dolce Villa room where rock walls and two heated tables are each equipped with custom showerheads overhead. Or for a unique pedicure experience, lounge in the custom-made pedi-couch where your toes will be adorned in an aged-bronzed bowl. Alvadora offers a truly intimate experience where guests will feel transported to a Mediterranean sanctuary. For long distance reservations, call 800-672-6011.
