Hotel Rodavento

Nature-inspired yurt spa revealed in Mexico


Hotel Rodavento, a 36-bed retreat nestled in the foothills of Valle de Bravo, two hours west of Mexico City, has opened a nature-inspired sanctuary set within the most secluded area of the surrounding forest.

Rodavento Spa is the work of architects Federico Gomez Crespo and Jose Antonio Gaxiola, in collaboration with hotel owner Waldemar Franco, and fashioned by interior designer Mariana Valero.

It features seven treatment rooms, a private yurt with a plunge pool and fire pit, and a hydrotherapy circuit. Its amenities and treatments entice visitors to unwind in the beauty of the natural world and ‘disconnect to reconnect’.

On arrival, guests are requested to ‘disconnect’ and leave their phones and cameras at reception before heading to a Scrub Bar to custom make their own scrub and lotion for their treatment. They can choose from a mix of scents, herbs and textures, such as lavender, mint and chamomile, based on their preference or with the help of an expert therapist.

Guests are then guided to a hammam for a deep cleanse followed by a soak in a series of hot and cold pools. A relaxation terrace with crystal walls and fireplace offers views of the Valle de Bravo greenery.

A wide range of treatments are available with a 50-minute massage priced at MXN1,200 (US$63, €56, £52). A CBD full body massage is offered following the legalisation of cannabidiol in Mexico and other highlights include Color Me, Mi Amor clay painting, warm body detox wrap, scalp and hair treatment and a Dulce Con Cacao chocolate scrub, warm herbal compress and obsidian stone massage in the yurt.

To complement the hotel’s extensive menu of destination adventures, including paragliding, zip-lining, archery and horseback riding the spa features treatments customised for golfers, cyclists, runners and hikers, equestrians and water sports enthusiasts.
