Mexico’s Grand Velas Los Cabos Self-Discovery Workshops

Se Spa’s Spa Atelier incorporates Mexican culture and Ayurvedic principles

It just feels right when a natural pairing of the local influences blends well into the architecture, experience and beauty of a landscape. Whether a spa treatment from the West Coast using cedar mulch for a cedar enzyme bath, a Canadian maple-sugar body scrub or a seaweed and salt wrap in the Caribbean, utilizing naturally local resources enhances the authenticity of the experience.

Mexico's new Grand Velas Los CabosThe newly opened Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort merges localized influences of the Mexican culture and ancient Ayurvedic medicines to create a series of Self Discovery Workshops, designed to teach and educate participants.

This class begins with a meditation program infused with an aroma.

It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
