The aroma of mango sweetens the air as guests take in the spa’s serene ambience at Mokara Hotel and Spa. Natural stonewall accents, lush orchids, and cushy sofas invite brides and grooms to let go and experience utter relaxation.
“As a classic European spa, Mokara offers a calming sanctuary along a gorgeous stretch of the River Walk,” says Spa Director Jackie Flory. “The spa’s reputation for impeccable service makes it a highly desirable escape for wedding couples and their attendants who want to feel and look wonderful.”
The four-star spa boasts 17,000 square feet of finely appointed beauty and treatment rooms as well as hot tub and sauna retreats.
Lingering for a few soothing hours at Mokara melts away the stress of flustered brides needing a break from wedding preparations. The all-encompassing Eternal Bliss package includes a Swedish massage, scrub, manicure, pedicure, makeup application, and formal updo. While the signature Icing on the Cake bridal package provides a manicure, pedicure, makeup application, and formal updo. Express package options are available, and all services are offered individually.
“From head to toe, we lavish the bride with what she needs to feel energized and radiant,” Jackie says. “She may enjoy all of the services on her wedding day or have some of them performed the day before. We cater to her wedding timeline.”
Of course, Mokara Spa also offers a revitalizing respite for grooms with gentlemen’s quarters appointed with equally upscale treatment, relaxation, and sauna rooms. Packages designed for men offer deep-tissue massages, facials, nail grooming, and lunch.
Couples hosting their nuptials at Mokara Hotel and Spa or its sister property Omni La Mansión del Rio Hotel, situated across one of the River Walk’s famed stone footbridges, receive discounts on spa services. “Spending leisurely moments in the spa extends the luxury experience for wedding couples and their bridesmaids and groomsmen celebrating a ceremony or reception at the Mokara or La Mansión.”
Wedding Party Indulgences
For couples wishing to host a spa day for their attendants, Mokara will provide wedding parties of six or more with a spa coordinator who gives personalized scheduling and service attention. Wedding parties receive a 10-percent discount on a la carte services, and for stress-free convenience, all spa guests have access to complimentary valet parking.
The salon boasts numerous beauty stations in its own private and expansive space, which can make for quite a party atmosphere when the bride and her maids are having their hair, makeup, and nails done. “Our salon artists focus all of their attention on the group and make sure their sessions flow seamlessly,” Jackie says. “Upon request, the spa will also provide champagne and fruit and cheese platters to enhance their special time together.” The spa will even prepare welcome bags featuring boutique spa items such as fragrant candles or plush robes for the bride who wants to express her appreciation for her bridesmaids.
Between beauty and body treatments, bridal parties can gather in one of the spa’s comfy relaxation rooms or indulge in one of the indoor hot tubs overlooking the River Walk. Artisan salads, wraps, desserts, and beverages from Mokara Hotel’s Rooftop Café can be delivered to one of the cozy relaxation rooms or enjoyed on the hotel’s terrace with impressive views of the city’s downtown skyline.
“As a distinguished four-star spa, Mokara indulges our wedding couples and their guests with an exceptional level of service provided by experienced staff. Our hope is that everyone experiences a sense of restoration so they can absorb the beautiful moments that await them.”
