Rekindle Romance for Valentine's Day, Beyond, at Mexico's


"Pampered Partners" Package Celebrates the Ritual of Love For Valentine's Day and Beyond At Esencia, a Seaside Estate on the Riviera Maya

Playa Xpu-Ha, Mexico (January 24, 2008) -- The seaside Esencia estate on the Riviera Maya offers a five-night "Pampered Partners" romance package inspired by the sensual body treatments of its Aroma Spa, the first and only organic spa in the Riviera Maya, where essences of the estate's flowers, herbs and fruits are used in treatment potions.  Two 90-minute "Ritual of Love" treatments, a couples' how-to-massage instruction with a private massage therapist, and a private couples' yoga session are highlights of the package, as well as five nights in a Garden Suite with its own plunge pool.  "Pampered Partners" also includes daily breakfast, a romantic dinner at Sal y Fuego, surprise romantic turndown treats and transportation to and from Cancun International Airport.

The Ritual of Love couples massage can awaken new heights of bliss for partners.  The treatment combines a 60-minute massage using essence of Ylang Ylang and locally-harvested marine salts with a 30 minute Jacuzzi bath accompanied by a cup of soothing herb tea such as vanilla with honey, cinnamon or red fruit.  Couples can leave the world behind and enjoy the purity of Aroma Spa's lush and completely private garden, ruled only by the essence of nature and love.

Dinner at Sal y Fuego (Spanish for "salt and fire"), introduces couples to Meso-American cuisine, which features traditional Yucatecan methods such as banana-wrapped fish and meat cooked in a pib (an earth oven).  The menu showcases the freshest local seafood as well as dishes from the rest of Mexico, all flavored with organic herbs and fresh fruits and vegetables. The restaurant's ambience combines Mexican flair and rustic simplicity, with its thatched palapa roof and view of a cenote, an illuminated underground fresh water pool.

The "Pampered Partners" package rates start at $3,445 for a Garden Suite from now until April 30, 2008. Tax and service charges are additional and extra nights are available upon request.

Esencia, originally built as the private home for an Italian duchess, was transformed into an elegant estate by ProHotel International of Houston, which also operates the celebrated La Pleta Hotel and Spa in the Spanish Pyrenees and the Casanova Hotel in Barcelona, Spain.  The 29-room, 50-acre Esencia, located on Playa Xpu-Ha on a two mile stretch of fine white-sand beach 46 miles south of Cancun, is the essence of simplicity, elegance and beauty. Its 29 spacious suites and guestrooms include a range of features from private gardens to solariums and deep-soaking plunge pools.
