The Caribbean’s Newest Luxury Spa Is in the Riviera Maya

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 25, 2024

It’s the newest luxury resort in the Mexican Caribbean: Maroma, a Belmond Hotel, which reopened and relaunched following a dramatic transformation last year

Now, the hotel has unveiled another major addition: the first-ever Guerlain Spa in Latin America and just the second in the Caribbean (the other is in the Cheval Blanc in St Barth). 

The spa is inspired by Mayan culture, with a menu featuring everything from “healing rituals” to an anti-aging treatment called the Talisman of Immunity.

“We are thrilled to be Guerlain’s first partner in Latin America, further cementing our ambitions for our newly reopened Mexican sanctuary – Maroma, as the beating heart of the Riviera Maya,” said Federico Echaiz, Area Managing Director and General Manager of Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya. “Maroma Spa by Guerlain is the perfect synergy of healing experiences celebrating Mayan culture alongside Guerlain’s unparalleled expertise in well-being for body, mind, and soul. We are delighted to share our holistic and pioneering wellness approach with our guests.” 

The spa was designed by Tara Bernerd & Partners, which also helped lead the redesign of the hotel itself.
