Solo Prices Ixtapan Spa

Going to Ixtapan is a perfect spa and fitness getaway. Going and having your own room and total privacy is even more of a treat. Single pricing at most spas is very high, sometimes twice the actual double occupancy price. Single pricing at Ixtapan Spa is a bargain. Rates are on www.spamexico.com

If you do come alone, you will not be alone. Our living room style public spaces encourage conversation. Our Bulletin Board creates sharing of tours/tennis games and more. Casual dining where guests meet others is here. Spa waiting areas, morning walks, bingo, movies, pool and gym classes are all excellent places to meet up.

If  you prefer privacy, try a serene corner in our acres of flowering gardens. Whether you are social or not, Ixtapan Spa has a special place for you. Contact our office for your booking: ixtapan@spamexico.com or Call us in Texas at 1 800 IXTAPAN.

“Can’t Wait” is Our Guests’ Mantra

Why is it that so many of our guests return every year to Ixtapan Spa? It is, of course, the healthy experience, weather, food, inclusiveness and budget. But there is a certain feeling of being back home in Mexico expressed by guests.

Ixtapan Spa is not a brand, it is a family owned resort, offering personal service and a warm welcome from staff who know your name. The hotel is small enough that you find you way around in a day or two; but large enough that there will be surprises each year, plus secrets to learn from veteran guests.

We evolve each year and are always updating. Last year was our first with the warm mineral bath stretch, good for relaxation and arthritis and ideal after the 2 mile early morning walk.

If you have not been back in a while, come home again and see what new goodies we have for you and your health. Better yet, bring friends who will thank you bilingually.

Winter Woes: Don’t miss out

DSC_0870

This winter will be Ixtapan’s busiest season with a chill looming and snow early in parts of North America. Flights to Mexico City are also busy, as the economy is brisk south of the border with global investment in manufacturing and more.

So here is the simple way to get organized. Call our office for availability. Give our welcoming staff a credit card to guarantee your spot ( they will not debit the card). Then talk to your friends and see if you can get a small group going. If not, Ixtapan staff will arrange a private transfer from the airport to the resort and your driver will be standing there as you exit customs/immigration.

Try the usual airline sites for either Toluca or Mexico City, then try some others: Google now offers its own flight deals, and kayak.com is another, with money saving combinations of airlines.

Whatever you do today, book your room at the resort and start yapping to your friends. The office in San Antonio is 1 800 IXTAPAN or 1 800 638 7950.

Ixtapan Spa for Everyone

What a special day for all Americans to welcome a Pope who opens up discussions about issues that effect all of us. At Ixtapan Spa,

we also welcome all faiths and all nationalities. It is important to our staff that so many North Americans count Ixtapan Spa as their winter “home” and we are proud of that warm feeling. If you have not been here in a while, the welcome mat is more up to date, but the smiles are the same.

Come back and see our Zen Gazebo, new fitness center and fitness class spaces, enjoy our updated menu, our mineral water exercise and tell the folks at home via our free wifi. Book today at 1 800 IXTAPAN OR

Ixtapan Spa and Hot Springs Stretch Classes

  springs   Unknown-2  Unknown-1

Ixtapan Spa has warm mineral springs next door. The Springs offer a wonderful place for a stretch after our 7AM walk. Some guests only do the mineral springs class; others do the walk and then the Springs.

Some benefits of moving in warm mineral springs are: increased relaxation, and circulation. Warm mineral springs can also relax tired muscles and improve sleep. Some people with chronic muscle pain find relief. Others with skin issues like eczema and psoriasis find help and others with rough skin get some softening. Of course you should always check with your doctor before using hot springs. And if you love them, spread the mud to help your face and neck tighten.

Mineral springs advice brought to you from www.spamexico.com Ixtapan Spa Hotel and Golf Resort. The Springs are right next door using the same entrance as the Water Park. Admission is free for the 8AM class but a small fee at other times.

Why We Put Blankets in all Ixtapan Spa Rooms

Our altitude is 5400-6000 feet. You arrive in Mexico City and are met personally by our drivers in modern vans. As we  drive on the modern highways towards charming Ixtapan de la Sal, you will descent gradually. From urban views, you will soon be in farm land backed by mountains, colonial church spires centering small towns.

Still in stunning mountains, but at a lower altitude, our resort is cool and spring-like every night of the year. In winter, we drop to 50 at night and two weeks ago end August, our low was 55. Guests don’t need air conditioning but might need our  blankets.

Guests who like white noise, request a fan. Others just enjoy the clear cool of our mountain air. Come Winter, come Spring, come Autumn, come Summer: we are blessed with a perfect climate. And yes our pools are heated all year around. And yes bring a sweater for AM walks and late afternoon shopping in town. Book today at ixtapan@spamexico.com or visit www.spamexico.com 1 800 IXTAPAN.

 

 

Hot Weather Tips From 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.

Here is how we at Ixtapan Spa take care of you in Summer when our daytime temperatures are only 80ish and night time, about 60ish. We give you as much free bottled water as you want. We have bottled water at meals, in the bar and in our new fitness center. At meals, we also offer free of charge: hybiscus drinks, different teas, coffee and breakfast includes all kinds of fresh juice. Juices are sweet orange, sometimes pink grapefruit and often green cactus/pineapple mix. They are all fantastic, don’t stink on juice here.

You may ask for a giant fan in your room. You may also swap any meal for fruit and cheese or fish to make your intake even lighter for summer weather.

Finally, laundry for your fitness clothes is inexpensive, excellent and takes usually over night. Don’t over pack, for a few $dollars, you can use our laundry by handing it with the laundry bag and list to housekeeping.

Ask for your free packed lunch on departure, it will also have a bottle of juice in it along with a sandwich, fruit and dare we admit: a cookie.

Drink lots of liquids when exercising or just relaxing at high altitude. You will feel better and look amazing.

Ixtapan Spa :Wifi and More

Did you know that we installed wifi in the whole hotel? The general rule of trying to relax is NOT to call one’s office all vacation long.  Guests love to keep in touch with family and work, so we listened to their personal needs.

potsofflowers

Turn the data off on your smart phone; then access wifi to use Skype or Facetime to call home for free. There is no password involved and you may do this in the privacy of your room if you prefer. If you don’t know how to do work with your cell phone, ask another guest.

One of the benefits of our Ixtapan Spa  atmosphere is its ‘living lobby’ where guests sit and chat as if in their living room. From early AM coffee and juice for the early riser, through after dinner drinks, you will find total strangers meeting up in our open air casual atmosphere.

Our low single prices encourage many solos, so don’t hesitate. Book your Summer Getaway now, and come chat with us.

What better way to sell Ixtapan Spa to your potential group friends, than to show them comments on Facebook and Tripadvisor. Facebook has a unique feature: guests at the hotel write happily about their stay while they are there. These comments are a live broadcast.  Remember not everyone looks at Facebook, so  share these comments with friends who might join your group. Facebook comments are usually accompanied by a photo of the person writing; they are real and they are impressive.

Tripadvisor shows another aspect of Ixtapan Spa, again real comments and often real photos. Tripadvisor will also share with you a general profile of the person writing.  You will also see management responses on Tripadvisor telling you and your group that our management is listening and interested in you.
