Visitors to the colonial Mexican city of Puebla can celebrate the region’s cultural heritage at the 78-room Rosewood Puebla and the elegant Sense, A Rosewood Spa.

The spa’s design and signature treatments are inspired by the history of Mexico and include a number of services that incorporate indigenous recipes, techniques, and local lore. Among the highlights are Angel’s Infusion, a breathing treatment included at the beginning of several treatments to help open and a detoxify the lungs using indigenous chamomile, mint, majoram, and thyme; the Volcanic Mud Cure ($122, 90 minutes), which incorporates minerals from Puebla’s four surrounding volcanoes; the Talavera Massage ($100, 60 minutes; $125, 90 minutes), which is inspired by the city’s traditional hand-made pottery and involves mineralizing clay and onyx stones; and the Ancient Tired Legs Cloth Ritual ($100, 90 minutes), inspired by generations of women from Puebla who used hot cloths prepared with an infusion of rosemary and cinnamon to help relieve muscle pain and improve circulation.
