Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya Unveils Naum Spa

Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya lobby

The new Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya officially debuted their on-property Naum Spa. The 10,000-square-foot spa has six treatment cabins and two hydrotherapy areas along with a customized menu of services—many of which incorporate indigenous Mayan methods.

The treatments, coined "Naum Rituals," were developed based on Mayan traditions known as rituals, which are reflective of the body, mind and spirit. The spa's namesake, Naum, is the Mayan God of consciousness and mind. 

Naum Rituals were created to pay homage to oneself and the Mayan Gods and to find a sense of harmony based on the guest's selected area of intention, whether it be Clarity (Tsoolik), Rest (He'lel), Strength (Muuk') or Connection (Molcintah). Each ritual is a three-part experience, beginning with a Mayan Time of Reflection, followed by the treatment itself, and concludes with a Mayan Celebration to help guests balanced and reconnect.
