Yäan Healing Sanctuary

Tulum’s holistic jungle hideaway

Modern barefoot luxury and historic healing therapies meld in perfect harmony at Yäan Healing Sanctuary Spa, a stunning holistic hideaway tucked between Tulum’s white sand beaches and enchanting jungle backdrop.

Sitting near the trendy Be Tulum hotel, the spa complex itself is a work of art, blending seamlessly into the area’s lush surroundings with natural elements, neutral colors and plenty of tropical landscaping.

Exclusive Mexican and Mayan treatments take center stage at this oasis, where every visit begins with a healing waters circuit inspired by the region’s many cenotes (natural underground springs). Whether you’re stopping in for an alfresco yoga session or a multi-day wellness getaway, you’ll find a piece of paradise at this chic Mexican retreat.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Every exquisite treatment at Yäan Healing Sanctuary Spa begins with a one-hour healing water circuit. The experience is made even more luxurious thanks to a dedicated valet who ushers you between plunges and saunas, offering tea made with leaves from the property’s rooftop garden and a natural scrub for use in the striking marble hammam.
  • Be sure to try the locally inspired therapies performed by indigenous healers. The 80-minute Sobada Maya ritual, for example, features a combination of native herbs, copal smoke therapy and a deep massage to open energy channels and leave you feeling renewed.
  • For the ultimate indulgence, opt for a refreshing ritual bath in one of the Tulum spa’s eco-luxe cabanas. Enjoy your soak in a stylish bronze tub, where warm water is enhanced with salts, essences and fresh herbs and flowers from the property’s rooftop garden.
  • To connect more deeply with Tulum’s Mayan roots, opt for a cleansing ceremony in one of the spa’s traditional temazcales (Mexican sweat lodges).
  • Revitalize your skin with the Garden of Yäan. First, your body undergoes an invigorating botanical exfoliation, followed by a massage using coconut body butter and finally a soak in freshly plucked herbs, flowers, salts and calming oils.

The Facilities

  • We can’t say enough about the cenote-inspired healing waters circuit at this luxe Mexican spa. The ritual starts with a soak in a warm pool for five to 10 minutes, followed by a respite in the hammam, a dip in the cold plunge pool, a stint in a dry sauna, culminating in one final plunge into icy waters.
  • Yäan Healing Sanctuary Spa is home to an organic rooftop garden where fresh flowers and herbs, including mint, rosemary, lavender, arnica and anise, are picked daily for use in treatment, teas and body scrubs.
  • Enjoy wellness with a twist in the luxury spa’s tree-top yoga shala. Soak in views of the jungle canopy during your hatha or vinyasa flow practice, or opt for one of the meditation or sound healing classes.
