Put Down The Beer and Pick Up The Jump Rope at Moon Palace Resort in Cancun
Hotel wellness programs are THE IN THING right now. Seriously, if we lost a pound for every press release we've gotten about a new hotel fitness or wellness amenity, we'd be walking around naked because we'd be so fit.
But we have to give an extra shout-out to Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort's new fitness initiatives for keeping us motivated, even while beer, sugary cocktails and chips and dips tempt us at every turn.
The all-inclusive resort has bucked the norm when it comes to chilling out in the middle of Cancun and traded the cocktails for Crossfit and poolside snacks for Pilates. Just by booking one of the property's 19 Palace Wellness Suites, guests will score health-oriented amenities, a minibar stocked with juices brimming with vitamins and an Awe Sports Kit complete with a yoga mat, jump rope and dumbbells.
Each recently renovated-room also features the CHI beauty amenities, aromatherapy room diffusers, pillow menus and dawn simulating alarm clocks to ensure you start each day with a smile on your face. And since we know that fitness is more than just exercise and sleeping well, 24-hour access to a healthy room-service menu is just one button away.
Once health-nuts are ready to attack their day, guests have access to the property's gym and fitness classes like yoga, Crossfit-style groups, Pilates and Aqua-Spinning in their semi-private pool just outside the swim-up suite. Even catching a wave on the FlowRider can be a great way to burn some of chips and salsa.
Starting rates in the Wellness Suites are $284 per person, per night. For those that want to get away for more than five days, a $1,500 resort credit will be part of a package to spend on massage treatments, yummy dinners and off-property excursions to check out the local flare.
