Press Release Ixtapan de la Sal Mexico and New York
Recession does not mean receding from pampering or girl friend getaways!
Hotel Ixtapan Spa and Golf Resort
For the first time, the venerable Hotel Ixtapan Spa and Golf Resort is offering Mother/Daughter Promotions until October 4 2008*. The 220 room resort is known for providing value at reasonable prices: $1299 double / $1537 single for 7 night packages (meals and spa services included).
Along with cool prices, comes cool summer weather: Ixtapan sits in the Sierra Madres Mts. at 5400 ft. and is a mere 65 miles from Mexico City. Temperature range in the Summer is 60-80.
Hotel Ixtapan Spa and Golf Resort is a 60 year destination resort located in the charming town of Ixtapan de la Sal, a mineral springs source since 1850, and today the vacation home for affluent Mexicans. The resort is known for its comprehensive spa and golf packages, which sell for 1/4 of what one would pay North of the Border.
The popular 7 night spa package includes all meals (calorie controlled) plus 21 personal treatments with organic ingredients, tennis and golf lessons, a well equipped gym, 2 pools, lighted tennis courts, daily walks, fitness classes etc. Golf and combo golf/spa packages are available, using the18 hole course. Transfers can be booked from Mexico City and Toluca Airports. Gratuities and 16% taxes are extra. A bonus is that fuel surcharges on flights to Mexico are among the lowest.
Recently Ixtapan opened a 5 star Holistic Spa, which offers optional services at 1/4 of US rates. These range from $76-$190- the latter for a heavenly 100 minute Balinese Hot Clay Treatment.
The resort is appropriate for solo travelers, couples, families and especially girlfriend getaways. Group rates require only 6 participants during much of the year. Sightseers will enjoy the excursions offered to colonial towns and archaeological sites.
The resort has been hailed by The New York Times and by Regis, but has not done press outreach. We are happy to begin with two wonderful promotions and a place still affordable for US tourists. Cool air thrown in for free.
* Mother/Daughter offer also good for daughter-in-law and granddaughter. Guests must share the room and be on the same spa package; proof of eligibility might be requested on check in.
