Maroma Spa by Guerlain, a new sanctuary of wellness in Latin America
In the heart of the Riviera Maya, a new sanctuary of wellness has been born. Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, has unveiled its latest jewel — the Maroma Spa by Guerlain. The spa is the very first by Guerlain in Latin America, a milestone where the storied traditions of the French Maison meet the mystical allure of Mayan culture.
Imagine a place where the elements of nature are not just concepts but the foundation of healing rituals. This is the ethos of the Maroma Spa by Guerlain. One can't help but be captivated by the Bee Healing Ritual, a treatment that’s both a homage to the sacred Melipona bee of Mayan lore and a testament to the healing prowess of Guerlain’s Abeille Royale collection.
The spa is a mosaic of unique treatments, each a narrative in itself. The Purifying Cenote treatment is like a journey through the mystical cenotes of Riviera Maya, refreshing and nourishing. The Talisman of Immunity is a blend of the Black Orchid's age-defying magic and the grounding energy of black obsidian.
Of course, Maroma Spa by Guerlain's story is more than just treatments. It's an immersive experience where the buzz of bees and the vibrations of sound therapy transport you to a different realm. The Underwater Meditation is like a lullaby under the sea, while the ancient Temazcal ceremony reconnects you with ancestral wisdom. The constellation massage is akin to a dance with the stars, aligning the cosmos with the soul.
The narrative of this spa is also one of learning and exploration. Workshops in mindfulness, movement, and yoga are woven into the fabric of the experience, alongside an apothecary workshop where the secrets of herbs become an open book for guests.
The newly renovated space, led by internationally renowned design studio Tara Bernerd & Partners and in conjunction with local artisans, is a testament to the respect for the local environment and culture. The treatment rooms are cocoons of tranquillity, adorned with local elements and bespoke designs. The palette of earth tones, ochre yellow, light blue, and dark red, along with the muted neutrals and warm wooden furniture, creates a space that is both grounding and uplifting.
The story of Maroma Spa by Guerlain is also a tale of environmental stewardship. The collaboration with Fundación Selva Maya and Mayahuum to protect the endangered Melipona bee speaks volumes of their commitment to preserving the ecological balance of the Yucatán Peninsula.
