Rosewood Mayakoba Global Wellness Day Announcement

June 2, 2016


Rosewood Mayakoba to Host Healthy Activations as part of International Wellness Initiative.

Rosewood Mayakoba today announces special programming in honor of Global Wellness Day, an international initiative that takes place the second Saturday of every June. One of twelve Rosewood Hotels & Resorts properties participating in the campaign, Rosewood Mayakoba will offer an authentic ritual in the morning followed by the first-ever ‘Global Wellness Day Rose-Fit Race.’ Additionally, the resort will offer various workshops throughout the day on June 11, 2016 to educate guests on the benefits of healthy living and ways to incorporate wellness into everyday life.

“We are excited to celebrate Global Wellness Day at Rosewood Mayakoba”, said Daniel Scott, Managing Director. "Guest wellness has always been our priority, whether at the spa, by the pool, or in our restaurants. At Rosewood Mayakoba, we pride ourselves on offering indulgence with awareness and have created a wide range of green and responsible on-property initiatives that maintain the resort’s environmental integrity and educate our guests in honor of Global Wellness Day.”

In celebration of the global initiative, Rosewood Mayakoba is offering the following wellness-inspired activities throughout the day: 

  • Sun Gratitude Ritual: Guests can begin their day paying homage to Mother Nature with an ancient, pre-Hispanic Sun Gratitude Ritual. 
  • Global Wellness Day Rose-Fit Race: Guests looking for a little friendly competition can participate in the resort’s inaugural commemorative triathlon, where teams of three will swim, bike and run through the property for a chance to win exclusive prizes. Open to ages 12 and up, this is a healthy activity for the whole family. 
  • Healthy Cooking Lesson: A gluten- and dairy-free class will be offered at La Ceiba Garden & Kitchen to educate guests on the simplicity of clean – and delicious – eating, featuring produce from the on-property garden. Recipes will include healthy twists on Mexican classics such as aguachile ceviche and guacamole. 
  • Apothecary Workshop: Guests are invited to make their own natural scrubs using indigenous herbs such as lavender, orange cloves, honey and more during a special workshop led by Sense Spa Director Emmanuel Arroyo. 
  • Ecology Lesson: Guests can discover the importance of maintaining the environment during an interactive session with an on-property specialist that will guide guests through eco-sustainability and tree care. 
  • Commemorative Pool Amenities: A healthy selection of poolside amenities will be offered to guests throughout the day, including passed goji berries and crudités, fresh coconut water, cucumber eye pads and massages as well as the commemorative cocktail, the Aloe Margarita.

Guests who are looking to take Global Wellness Day a step further can indulge in Sense Spa’s newest treatment, the Kuxtal Sensory Garden Journey. The innovative treatment is inspired by the Mayan’s deep respect for nature and belief in the symbiotic relationship between humans and plants to unlock ancient Mayan wisdom, awaken the senses and assist guests in reaching a higher state of consciousness. Kuxtal, which means “tree of life,” aims to create a sanctuary for the mind by guiding guests on a journey along the four cardinal points and reinforcing the seamless connection between the natural world and personal well-being.

The Global Wellness Day activities can be booked online at Rosewood Mayakoba.
