Fairmont Mayakoba Unveils Spa Renovation

Fairmont Mayakoba has announced the reopening of its spa after an extensive renovation. Formerly known as Willow Stream Spa, the newly rebranded Fairmont Spa merges ancient Mayan traditions with contemporary luxury.

The Fairmont Spa offers Signature Moon-Based Experiences, each tailored to harness the energy of the lunar cycle. These include the New Moon’s foot and hand massage with earth-based ingredients and the Waxing Moon’s full-body massage, incorporating Mayan shawls and the warmth of wax and candles. Complementing these lunar-inspired treatments are Classic and Specialty Facials that utilize natural extracts and earth- and sea-sourced ingredients.

Other experiences include Couples Treatments, Holistic Experiences and Quartz Sand Experiences. Physical Wellness Experiences, with classes such as mobility flow and yoga, are also available.

Guests can also participate in Mayan ceremonies and Spiritual Wellness Experiences. New to the spa is the ancient tradition of the temazcal, a pre-Hispanic sweat lodge, crafted from stones. Guided by a temazcalero, each ceremony is a personalized, 60-minute exploration within the intimate space heated by volcanic stones, over which a cold infusion of herbs is poured by candlelight. Chants create an atmosphere conducive to a trance-like state, as guests are enveloped in incense or mud. The temazcal’s shape, reminiscent of a mother’s womb, ensures a retreat from external discomforts, offering participants a profound experience of introspection and a symbolic rebirth.

To complete the holistic journey, guests can enhance any spa treatment with a selection of 30-minute services at the Wellness Bar or a full range of beauty services at the salon. Guests can also head to the spa boutique and juice bar, where sustainably sourced products are showcased.
