Fairmont Spa Mayakoba

A spa inspired by Mexico’s Mayan heritage
Hidden in the peaceful tropics of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Fairmont Spa Mayakoba is a vast wellness facility that offers a true retreat for those seeking complete restoration and relaxation.

The spa takes its cues from Mayan history and rich resources of the landscape, utilizing local ingredients and purification methods alongside modern spa techniques to create a luxurious balance of the ancient and the new.
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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • In the garden, you will find a temazcal, a pre-Hispanic sweat lodge. A temazcalero, will guide each personalized ceremony, a 60-minute spiritual exploration within the intimate space that’s heated by volcanic stones. You will slip into a trance-like state as you’re enveloped in incense or mud. The stone temazcal is shaped like a mother's womb as a symbolic rebirth.

The Facilities
  • Located off the spa lobby, the well-equipped fitness center includes Technogym equipment and Peloton bikes. It also offers activities such as yoga, mobility flow, Pilates, stretching and a runners' club.
  • 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.
  • A quartz sand bed helps align the chakras and encourage relaxation. While you sprawl out on the sand, a therapist will give you a restorative massage.
