RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO - Rosewood Mayakoba is proud to announce Sense, A Rosewood Spa® continues to solidify its reputation as being among the best in Mexico and Central America. Receiving a total score of 99.4 percent in the Condé Nast Traveler 2012 Readers Poll of the Top 270 Spas, only six spas from Costa Rica to Hawaii ranked higher with perfect 100s. Nearly 29,000 readers voted in the publication’s highly coveted survey which judges based on three categories: spa treatments, staff and facilities. Sense, A Rosewood Spa® at Rosewood Mayakoba received the honor of perfect scores for its innovative treatments and restful sanctuary. The 2012 Reader’s Poll is featured in Condé Nast Traveler's June issue and online.
“Rosewood Mayakoba and our acclaimed Sense, A Rosewood Spa® consistently strive to offer guests the most outstanding, lavish and innovative experiences,” said Graeme Davis, Managing Director of Rosewood Mayakoba. “We are greatly honored and would like to thank our guests, the discerning readers and editors of Condé Nast Traveler for recognizing our resort and spa.”
The 17,000-square-foot Sense spa is ensconced on its own island melding water and earth to reflect the nurturing soul of the Riviera Maya. The award-winning spa features 12 luxurious lagoon-side treatment rooms and eight private spa suites built around a cenote, an underground natural wonder of river systems and fresh water sinkholes that the Mayans consider to be a sacred entrance to the underworld. With its superb facilities, state-of-the-art equipment and staff of expertly trained spa professionals, the spa provides an unmatched health and beauty wellness experience designed to reinvigorate mind, body and soul.
The spa offers a wide variety of signature treatments and experiences that have been carefully designed to unite the splendor of the surrounding natural environment and authentic Mexican healing traditions including the Mayakoba Signature Ritual. Inspired by the magic of the Mayan calendar, this treatment is a fusion of centuries-old knowledge, traditional healing arts, local herbs and massage designed to replenish and soothe body and soul. Other authentic treatments include the acclaimed Temazcal Ritual, a purifying steam bath based on traditional Mayan healing methods to purify, cure, revitalize and balance.
The Deluxe Island Suite, located on the spa island, is the ultimate hideaway for spa enthusiasts or guests in search of a complete privacy in nature. Offering sweeping views of the property and its meandering lagoons, this one-of-a-kind 1,544-square-foot duplex suite features a private spa treatment cabin, luxurious master suite, two full bathrooms and an expansive living and dining area decorated with crisp, contemporary furnishings.
