Maroma Resort and Spa

Maroma, Mexico

Prices From: $510

Experience the magic and the beauty of profound well-being in an eternal paradise located in a breathtaking corner of the Yucatan jungle. Echoes of the ancients, coral reefs fringed with sugary veils of white sand, a lapis blue sea marking the rhythm of days and nights. The natural harmony, the spiritual relationship between land and sea. Here every delight has its secret language, a name and a sound breathed ritually from the heart.

Maroma is a secluded, luxurious hideaway on Mexico's historic Yucatan Peninsula, nestled on the edge of the turquoise Caribbean and protected by 200 acres of jungle preserve. The area benefits from an excellent weather and temperature, which fluctuates between 25 to 35 degrees Celsius, 77 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Maroma has 65 rooms and suites tucked among lush gardens, cooled and shaded by coconut palms on one side, open to the dazzle of sun and sea on the other. Rooms glow with mahogany and bamboo-filtered light. A rainbow hammock beckons from the open-air terrace. Handpainted tile, soft wool rugs, original art and furniture from our own workshops make each unique. King-size bed and luxury bath with sunken tub provide delicious comfort just steps away from the sparkling beach, exquisite pool, beachfront jacuzzi, dining pleasures and voluptuous gardens populated with exotic birds and iguanas.

Kinan is the Maya word for the energy of the sun. Similar to the Asian concept of Chi, Kinan it is often used to refer to the individual inner energy. Opened in December 2004, this fabulous addition to the luxurious Maroma on Mexico´s Riviera Maya offers a full range of spa services in unique environments ranging from treatment rooms with private gardens, open-air massage palapas and a rooftop yoga pavilion with 360-degree views of Maroma´s dual ecosystems – the jungle and the sea. Each treatment room is named after a different God/Goddesses to respect the ancient beings and increase the healing power of the space. The "Ix Chel" room is named after the goddess of moon, fertility and the protector of the weavers, women and children, while the "Ahau Chamahez" room honors the god of medicine.
