About 20 minutes north of Cancun's crowded hotel zone sits Excellence Playa Mujeres.

It's this serene location that serves as the perfect backdrop to Miilé Spa. An island of relaxation and romance, Miilé Spa is a dreamlike escape characterized by flowing white curtains and neutral tones. Book the "Humanity Ceremony for Two" and you'll enjoy a private ritual in the Mud Therapy Room that includes a bubbling vanilla and orange bath, hand and scalp massage, and hydrating wrap. Arrive early to your couple's spa treatment to enjoy Miilé's signature hydrotherapy circuit, which features an authentic Swedish sauna, Roman caldarium and more.
