Paradisus Riviera Cancun Named as a Leading Spa for 2006

MIAMI--(CCNMatthews - Oct 7, 2005) -

The Renova Spa at Paradisus Riviera Cancun, whose "Royal Service Suites" is a member of "The Leading Hotels of the World," has been named as a Leading Spa for 2006.

"Our mission is to welcome our clients and offer experiences that revitalize the mind and body," said Ken Dittrich, general manager, Paradisus Riviera Cancun. "We are very proud to have achieved this recognition, which, together with our Royal Service Suite's membership in 'The Leading Hotels of the World' solidifies our position as one of the top luxury all-inclusives."

"We invite our guests to enjoy a luxuriously exclusive experience of a spa that is committed to integral well-being of the body, mind and spirit," added Rafael Liebanas, manager, Renova Spa.

Renova Spa offers a variety of treatments, such as the tropical body wrap, hydrotherapies, shiat-su, deep tissue massage and more. Guests can choose the exclusive program Paradisus Natural, using natural products and herbs and can be combined with a special selection of meals offered at all restaurants. Wedding couples can ask for the special bride and groom packages with treatments such as a couple's massage by moonlight. Also available at Renova Spa is the Temazcal, a sweat bath based on traditional healing methods used by the Mayans.

As the world's foremost authority for grading and inspecting hotels, The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. established the Leading Spas designation as the benchmark for global luxury standards in the spa and hospitality industries.

More than 200 separate criteria are taken into consideration, from the reservation process, to the sense of arrival, and atmosphere of the treatment room, to the treatment itself and the farewell.

Other checkpoints include:

-- With a massage, was a bolster or rolled towel placed under the ankles while the guest was lying face-down, and under the knees while the guest was lying on his/her back?

-- Was post-treatment advice offered?

-- Did the service provider inquire about medical conditions or areas that require special attention prior to the treatment, or provide a client profile questionnaire for the guest to fill in?

-- Was a choice of oils, creams and aromas offered (unless oils already chosen to complement the massages) with the service provider advising the benefits of each one?

There are only 85 Spas Worldwide that have passed this rigorous inspection, and only 5 in Mexico have received the designation.

Protected by the world's second largest coral reef, stretching between lush tropical gardens and the white sand and sparkling blue waters of Puerto Morelos, the Paradisus Riviera Cancun is the perfect example of an all-inclusive resort at its lavish best.

Paradisus Riviera Cancun features 500 lavish suites, 100 Royal Service Suites, 96 Ocean View Suites with private Jacuzzi and 4 ultimate Ambassador Suites. There are 6 restaurants featuring Mediterranean food, Mexican fare, Japanese cuisine, French dining and a seafood grill. The Paradisus Riviera Cancun is a AAA Four-Diamond Resort.
