Why Ixtapan and Why Now?




There are many resorts you can visit and many spas you can enjoy; but why Ixtapan Spa? Some reasons are obvious, others less visible.  The obvious: the very low cost of a full week with inclusions of all meals, all treatments, all classes and walks. That all the bottled water is included, as well as robes for the spa and fruit/juice and coffee for early risers.

The less obvious: friendliness of staff who make you feel you are coming home. The flexibility of meals so that you can order samples of more than one dish and never be charged again or ask for or an omelette anytime. Or a birthday cake for a friend? Or for a non spa Huevos Rancheros?

The least visible to newcomers: A bulletin board so you can share tennis or excursions to Taxco or Cuernavaca or the airport, common tables so no one eats alone unless they chose to, and a living lobby and bar where guests meet easily.

Where else can you call a hotel your own without the overlay of a boring and impersonal global brand? Join us for a winter weekend, and see for yourself both the obvious and hidden joys of Ixtapan Spa.  Book today by call our office in Texas: 1 800 IXTAPAN or emailing us at

This is the Year for You at Ixtapan Spa

It does not get fresher or more delicious than this fruit plate, with Oaxaca cheese.

It does not get fresher or more delicious than this fruit plate, with Oaxaca cheese.


We all have obligations, family concerns, and work. But how about making this ‘school’ year, the one for you. Instead of always doing for others, carve out a week for a totally passive and indulgent Spa Classic at Ixtapan Spa. Here are five ways to make your stay even better:

1-Book a few Holistic services in the Spa Holistico: how about something different like Four Hand Massage?

2-Take your own room for a change, and enjoy the privacy of doing what you want when you want it! Our single prices are a steal.

3-Bring a few good movies on your Ipad, preferably those that make you chuckle or swoon. Any George Clooney film will do it.

4-Take the day trip to Taxco and amble through the silver shops and main plaza with its craft market.

5-Enjoy the benefits of staying on our Spa menu, but finish your stay with a margarita made from fine Tequila.

This is the year for you, don’t waste it.
