Booty Camp

Posted on: November 28th, 2017 by Carrie Young No Comments

Tulum has been drawing the global, boho-chic set and celebrities alike- such as Jude Law, Sienna Miller, Cindy Crawford, Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron, and Linda Evangelista for years. But never before has a boot camp felt so beautiful. The Amansala is a magnet when it comes to attracting big name stars, but don’t be fooled by the gorgeous, relaxed beach setting- you will definitely work hard. Here, guests can reconnect to themselves and nature through exercise, healthy eating, and relaxation. The destination resort offers three types of wellness weeks, including Bikini Bootcamp, Beach ‘n Bliss Yoga Retreat, and Destination Detox- during which, a typical day might include a strenuous morning hike, followed by circuit training and yoga, an organic lunch, then salsa dancing- and maybe some tequila- into the wee hours. Many celebs have been known to escape to this hidden gem before awards show season to get their bods red carpet ready. And mere mortals- such as myself- come for some butt-kicking and zen in an idyllic setting.


Mexico’s Riviera Maya is home to some of the most beautiful beaches on earth so it’s not hard for every afternoon in Tulum to feel like you’re in paradise. If you want to off-road from your blissful body/mind reboot- temporarily of course- a 20-minute bicycle ride along the dusty beach road will take you to the Tulum Ruins, which were erected 700 years ago on the Mayan coast to protect the city. Another short drive from the ruins will take you to Tulum’s Gran Cenote, which is one of the most popular diving and snorkeling areas in the Riviera Maya. And when bootcampers aren’t exploring the bio-diversity and history of Tulum, they are working around their massage schedules back at the resort. Part of the spirituality within the program comes from the healing powers of those who work in the spa. The therapeutic treatments are so rejuvenating that it’s no wonder people flock to Amansala for some peace of mind, just like its meaning in Sanskrit.
