A rich tradition of the Vallarta region’s Huichole people, the spa’s unique Tatewari ritual provides a complete indulgence of body, soul and mind. For centuries, hidden away from the modern world and protected by the natural barrier of the mountains, the Huicholes performed this ceremony to heal the Earth and keep nature balanced. Today, the healing tradition lives on in practice and philosophy at this facility. « less

Say "Ahhhmazing" ten times ! Book your time at least once when visiting the Nuevo Vallarta area. We stayed at the hotel which gave us the opportunity to use the facilities a few times! If you're just using the hot tub, steam room, waterfall shower you've hit the tip of the iceberg! I signed up for the 80 min hot... More

One of the reasons for my return to Villa La Estancia is the Tatewari Spa. The treatments are wonderfully executed. Try the Thai massage by Nancy. My husband and I had multiple massages and all the therapists are great. They adjust your preference for pressure. Blanca at the front desk is wonderful at answering questions and following up with customers... More

Gone to this spa on an annual basis since 2007 and most recently in December 2012, never disappoints. Before your massage or other service you are escorted to the state of the art water therapy room complete with a hot and cold tub, steam and sauna room as well as a unique sit down 'water shoulder massage' which you sit...

We only went for the day use of the 'wet area' that was included in the all inclusive 3 day package so I can;t review the treatment rooms but the waiting are was stunning. The large infinity jacuzzi was wonderful , follow up with a cold (... More
