The Grand Velas resorts in Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit and Los Cabos announce SE SPA by Grand Velas, a new spa concept drenched in Mexican culture and inspired by the changing pattern of the seasons. Meaning ‘one’ in Aztec, the word SE was chosen by world renowned spa consultant Diana Mestre to symbolize the human journey to self-discovery and renewal. Following the changing pattern of the seasons, each of the award-winning spas will follow a specific wellness path represented by a unique totem, in honor of the ancient Mayan and Aztec traditions.

  • SE SPA revolves around nature and the four seasons, providing spa guests with subtle changes in flavors, aromas and other elements each season to create new experiences.
  • RENEWAL - In February, March & April, SE SPA celebrates renewal and the creation of our being. Floral scents such as lavender, jasmine and neroli (bitter orange) will be prevalent throughout.
  • JOY - In May, June and July, the body is preparing for change. Spa treatments are inspired by summer aromas, steering towards citrus, orange blossom, verbena and lime.
  • INSPIRATION – In August, September and October, it is time to observe ourselves and implement processes for improvement. The autumn menu revolves around herbal tones and scents such as rosemary, eucalyptus and mint.
  • INTROSPECTION – In November, December and January, we must connect with the deepest part of our being. Cedar, incense and cinnamon characterize the winter spa menu.

Each of the spas follow a specific wellness path represented by a unique totem.

Embodying the concept of renewal, the dragonfly symbolizes the virtue of living life in the moment and to the fullest. They are creatures of the water which symbolize the relationship with the subconscious and invitation to the mind to dream. It is also a creature of the wind. This represents change, and with its iridescent wings, sensitive to the breeze, it opens our consciousness; guiding us where the wind blows to welcome the changes in our life. The dragonfly carries meanings of prosperity, love, success, victory, strength and courage.

  • Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit – The Path of Transformation – The Butterfly

A sanctuary of wellness, tranquility and beauty, the spa immerses guests in healing rituals designed for lightness of spirit, vitality of body and freedom of mind.
Representing change, the butterfly is highly regarded by Pre-Hispanic populations as a symbol of transformation and evolution in life.

In gratitude, she will rise to the highest of the heavens, and the wish will be granted in appreciation of her freedom.
