Hyatt Playa del Carmen is gearing up to debut June 1 and that also means the opening of it’s Cenote Spa.
The 6,000 square-foot facility blends Maya-influenced therapeutic treatments and nature-inspired decor to provide guests with a sense of place.
The spa is named after the iconic geological feature of the Riviera Maya region, which is sacred to Mayan people because the crystalline freshwater sinkholes are believed to purify and cleanse the soul.
The facility will have subdued tones, a rich color palate, tall ceilings and natural decor to complement the vibrant green of the surrounding protected mangrove jungle.
It will offer a rotation of specialty treatments, inspired by the season and healing powers of hydrotherapy. Several spa menu selections will incorporate fresh and local ingredients, such as the Mayan Body Scrub with honey and yogurt. Cenote Spa will use Natura Bisse as the in-house product line as well as other biodegradable products.
Signature facilities and amenities include:
Eight Treatment Rooms
There are six single and two couples treatment rooms, with names and amenities inspired by Mayan traditions. These include the Coba, Tulum, Kantunchin, Akumal, Cozumel, Playa, Xonoti and Playa rooms.
All massage rooms are complete with a full bath and shower; electric massage tables; and iPod dock stations. Many offer views of the surrounding mangrove reserve.
There are hydrotherapy stations including hot and cold plunges; a sauna; eucalyptus steam room; and fiber optic chromotherapy showers. The Cenote Relaxing Area, a Hyatt Playa exclusive complete with a cenote plunge replica, aims to be a haven for meditation and relaxation.
The spa includes a fitness room with Technogym equipment and a workout studio featuring yoga, pilates, Crossfit and meditation classes.
Indigenous Treatments & Amenities
Guests can anticipate locally-inspired therapies, such as the Cenote Signature Treatment and traditional Maya massages, as well as a variety of spa amenities including cacao and fresh pineapple juice.
