Following Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya’s return in the Summer 2023, the newly reimagined property has launched a brand-new Maroma Spa by Guerlain. Now open to guests, this marks the very first spa by Guerlain in Latin America – a temple for transformative spirituality.
The spa marries the French Maison’s wellness savoir-faire with a deep appreciation of nature and vitality, offering a comprehensive menu of exclusive and innovative Guerlain treatments that draw inspiration from Mayan culture, alongside a selection of rejuvenating experiences.
Founded on the principles of nature and vitality, wellness takes on a new dimension at Maroma Spa by Guerlain. Healing rituals are inspired by the four elements of nature: fire, water, earth, and air; ancient practices; and the sacred Melipona bee, revered by the Mayans for over 3,000 years as a symbol of spiritual resonance. One exclusive treatment is the Bee Healing Ritual, a honey-based treatment renowned for its effective healing powers that calls on Guerlain’s Abeille Royale collection.
Guests can also opt for other exclusive destination-inspired treatments, from the Purifying Cenote – a refreshing and moisturising treatment inspired by the Riviera Maya’s mystical cenotes designed to soothe and nourish the skin, to the Talisman of Immunity – a holistic ritual that combines the Black Orchid to defend against aging and the strength of black obsidian, a revered Mexican sacred stone that helps to improve grounding and find balance.
Other holistic wellbeing experiences incorporate the frequency of the buzzing bees and the healing vibrations of sound therapy to stimulate the brain, balance energy, and inspire connection with nature. In addition, guests can opt for Underwater Meditation combining gentle movement and singing bowls, an immersive Temazcal ceremony, or even a constellation massage aligned with the cosmos.
The spa also includes a selection of daily workshops in mindfulness, movement and yoga as well as its own apothecary where guests can learn how to identify herbs in nature, classify them, and prepare and incorporate them into healing therapies. The Healing Remedies Workshop involves harvesting herbs from a traditional Kaánché and learning to make natural balms, scrubs and more using a copper alembic.
Federico Echaiz, Area MD and GM of Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya said: “Maroma Spa by Guerlain is the perfect synergy of healing experiences celebrating Mayan culture alongside Guerlain’s unparalleled expertise in well-being for body, mind, and soul. We are delighted to share our holistic and pioneering wellness approach with our guests.”
The newly-renovated space, in harmony with nature, features nine treatment rooms enriched with local design elements such as geometric shapes and artisanal objects. Throughout the spa, guests enjoy direct views of the jungle and an array of earth-tone hand-crafted pots filled with lush greenery, which contrast with the pops of ochre yellow, light blue, and dark red throughout the furnishings. The treatment rooms feature muted neutrals and warm wooden furniture, enriched with beautiful hues of rich teal blues and greens, and hand-carved onyx stone hand basins.
Spa guests have plenty of tranquil spaces to rest post-treatment, from the calming steam room to the serene garden, which showcases a variety of spiritual trees, some of which feature hidden carvings that lend to the mystical atmosphere of the spa.
Maroma Spa by Guerlain is now open daily from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
