Hot List 2010

Banyan Tree Spa Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Tel: 52-984-122-5068

What: A little outpost of Asian spa expertise within a Mexican resort, with rigorously trained massage specialists from the Banyan Tree mothership in Thailand.
The look: Modern folkloric: private cabanas with sleek black chaises offset with bright embroidered pillows. Large windows overlook tropical greenery, canals, and pools.
Who goes: Honeymooners, glam Latin American matriarchs, Playa day-trippers.
The treatment: The 90-minute Thai Classic massage melds traditional stretching with a vigorous rubdown and a choice of incense.
P.S.: The Rainforest Hydrotherapy Circuit comes with thunderstorm sound effects. You'll either feel transported or like a walk-on at Universal Studios (massages, $90).
