The Healing Temple


The healing temple offers signature Asian-inspired experiences all with the purpose of ridding the body, mind, and spirit of harmful toxins and energy bringing you to a place of relaxation, peace, and wholeness.


The ritual begins with an exotic Indian herbal scrub. The herbs help improve general health and rid the body of toxins, while improving circulation and respiratory function, relaxing muscles and reducing stress. The detoxifi cation process continues in the spa garden where you alternate between the hot and cold plunge pools. The heating up of the body will stimulate blood circulation and help evacuate toxins and the cleansing of the skin. Alternating with heat and cold stimulates the blood system and triggers the creation of adrenaline while the body is suddenly cooled. This also allows the elimination of dead cells and regenerates new cells, slowing the aging process. A healing massage follows your plunge pool experience and includes Shirodara and Marma points therapy.

The Ancient Temple

THE EXPERIENCE (3.5 hours)

The mood of yesteryears inspires the imagination and treatments of the Ancient Temple. In Pre-Colonial time, the native people of Nicaragua were culturally similar to the Aztecs and Maya; they have been a source of inspiration for centuries. Nicaraguans carry on with their ancestral traditions, including the ecologically sound use of native plants and herbal potions in healing and their deep respect for the earth and the ocean. A “living pharmacy” of locally grown medicinal plants, spices, regional flowers, volcanic clay, sea salt, sugar and herbs are used by the therapists to create unique and regional healing treatment recipes and protocols.


Regional volcanic clay or organic cacao is first applied to detoxify the skin and body. As the minerals infuse the skin, muscles are relaxed and impurities are drowned from the system. After the body mask has dried and you have showered off, you are guided to experience a traditional citric bath to relax and cleanse the body and spirit. Following is a full body massage using local coco oil packed with moisturizing Vitamin E as well as an organic facial mask to allow the powerful healing essences to be absorbed by the body. This ends our suggested Indigenous experience.

The Crystal Temple 


The crystal energy, auras, chakras healing session begins as soon as you walk into the dramatic high crystal spa where you will experience a visual and melodic concert of light and sounds. Rays of sunlight reflecting on flowing quartz crystals and stones create a magical dance of prisms and colors while you are enveloped by the deeply soothing sound vibration that comes from the skillful playing of the “crystal singing bowls”.


A mint and sea salt bath starts this signature experience. As water and aromatherapy become infused with energy, they provide effective, fast-acting remedies on a spiritual, emotional and physical level. They relax the body and mind and prepare you to receive the aromatherapy scrub, massage and radiance beauty facial treatment that follows.

The Hammam Temple


Hammam means “spreader of warmth” . In creating Mukul’s Hammam, we studied the sensual history of the Orient and its ancestral beauty traditions. Walking into a Hammam is like walking through time in a spacious and ornate sanctuary, a quiet retreat in an atmosphere of half-light, silence, seclusion and heat. Silence is an integral part of the cleansing process and helps the body and spirit liberate itself from excess and the superfluous. Guests come out of the Hammam session with a glow of sublime peace and euphoria.


The Hammam traditional ritual involves several steps to cleanse, detoxify, and help you relax. Your experience starts at the navel stone, a heated platform at the center of our Hammam. Once your body and limbs are relaxed, you are stretched by your therapist to take away aches and pains. Following this, you’ll experience one of the world’s most ancient traditions, a black-soap cleanse, followed by a cascading cold-water rinse. This prepares your skin for an invigorating scrub, which leaves you soft and free of accumulated toxins and impurities. After another rinse, a Ghassoul mask of Moroccan volcanic clay is applied to the body, face and hair. After the Ghassoul has been washed off, you are enveloped by a sensual and refreshing mist of floral rose water. The last step of this centuries-old practice of purification is the relaxing massage using pure Argan oil, Morocco’s precious youth elixir.

The Secret Garden Temple


What is Watsu? A unique massage therapy performed in a warm, specially designed pool that encourages complete relaxation through a combination of water and Shiatsu massage. The under-water pressure-point massage helps lubricate joints, lessens edema and arthritic swelling, and increases lymphatic drainage. The level of relaxation and mobility achieved from Watsu is deeper and more therapeutic than the typical Shiatsu massage. The daily stress, aches and toxins are eased away as breathing becomes stabilized, fatigued muscles unwind, and circulation is improved. Harmony of mind, body, and spirit is achieved.


The experience begins with the discovery of the Watsu Pool inviting you to “let go” and forget the outside world. This is a holistic and totally relaxing experience, floating and being held and stretched in the arms of your therapist. After coming out of the pool, enjoy a Nicaraguan floral body scrub followed by a relaxing massage using the essential oils of local Nicaraguan flowers.

The Rainforest Temple


In the Rainforest temple, guests can experience sea-inspired masks or scrubs. The hydrotherapy rituals are tailored to provide absolute well-being. You’ll receive an invitation to ease all tension, relieve pain and soreness, reduce inflammation of joints, relax muscles and recharge the body with energy as it absorbs the proven benefits of sea-minerals and pure organic essential oils.


This experience combines the proven benefits of essential oils and hydrotherapy. Treatment begins with traditional European dry brushing to remove impurities and dry skin cells, followed by a sugar scrub or firming mask to detoxify, rejuvenate, and re-mineralize your skin. The scrub or mask is washed away by the rhythmic waterfall of the Vichy Shower followed by Mukul’s signature purification massage, leaving you renewed, uplifted and feeling lighter. While you fall into a blissful state, your face is treated to a radiance facial.
