Our Inspector's Highlights
• The 37,000-square-foot Riviera Maya spa is a freestanding building with just about any wellness amenity you can think of.

• Spa treatments are arranged in three categories – Relieve, Restore or Results – making navigating the extensive list of services fairly easy.

• The couples spa suite provides a serene space reminiscent of a tropical jungle cabin, complete with its own private balcony, bath and shower. Here, pairs can indulge in the two-hour Yucatan Healing Retreat session, beginning with a relaxing footbath on the balcony.

• Several sports-minded treatments are available, including one specifically for golfers that involves massage, stretching and even acupressure.
Things to Know
• The Willow Stream spa does not serve guests younger than 18, staying committed to its position as an adult sanctuary.

• Electronic devices are not permitted, but if you wish to receive messages during your relaxation hours the spa’s staff can make arrangements.

• Swimsuits are required for certain areas in the spa.
The Treatments
• There is no shortage of services here, and you’ll no doubt find what you’re looking for on the spa menu. Massages range from deep tissue and hot stone to reflexology and lymphatic drainage.

• The most impressive treatment is perhaps the Cha Chac Rain Ritual, a 90-minute session of deep restoration named after Chac, the rain god. When you enter the Cha Char Rain Room, you’ll experience a traditional blessing and take in burning copal incense (meant to cleanse your energy).

• Facials aim to fight aging, firm, enhance glow and boost nourishing elements in skin.

• Excellent manicures and pedicures are also available, including a pedicure that uses Mexican obsidian stones.
The Facilities
• The 37,000-square-foot Riviera Maya spa is a freestanding building with just about any wellness amenity you can think of. Located off the spa lobby, the well-equipped fitness center includes cardio equipment, free weights, resistance machines and more, as well as a separate room for group classes.

• In the garden just outside, a covered area is home to several colonies of melipona bees, a stingless local species known among Mayan communities for their delicious honey with incredible healing properties. (Yes, that honey is used in some of the treatments here.)

• Upstairs, you’ll find the entrances to the men’s and women’s locker rooms, which have dreamy relaxation areas, whirlpools and outdoor Swiss showers.

• An expansive lounge area with floor-to-ceiling windows is a relaxing space to enjoy a snack or tea before stepping out onto the rooftop hydrotherapy area, where you can indulge in the vitality pool’s soothing waterfalls or take a dip in the sea-mineral soaking pool.
