Decadent Treatments

Just because your spa is in a tropical locale does not mean it has to miss out on the holiday comforts typical of a white Christmas and winter wonderland. Even beachside spas can create a festive atmosphere with themed treatments. Remède Spa at The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort (Nayarit, Mexico) has done just that with the Apple Cinamon Winter Scrub ($125) and Choco Mint Special Pedicure ($100, 60 minutes) available through January to keep the spirit alive in the New Year. The apple-cinnamon body scrub pampers the body and gives skin a radiant glow, plus a spicy aroma.  The homemade recipe has hints of shea butter with cinnamon and sweet apple oil. A rosemary scalp massage oil finishes off this indulgent treatment. When it's December, spas can't leave out the chocolate and this special pedicure treatment comes with a mint-chocolate martini in a beautiful outdoor pedicure palapa. It finishes with foot reflexology and polish application.

How do you keep your spa festive when the weather is anything but frightful?
