Located at the center of the property, the spa’s circular configuration echoes the holistic philosophy that guides WAYAK, the Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya’s experience and inspires its marine and herbal treatments. The healing powers of the jungle come full-circle with Mayan-inspired treatment rooms overlooking waterfalls and providing the natural healing sound of water immersed in lush greenery and the bright, soothing shore. Soak in the natural elements of the Riviera Maya with the 80-minute Xaman-Ek (Love Ritual) which follows the Mayan belief that the southern star guided the footsteps of those on to the path to love, understanding, harmony and abundance. The experience begins with a foot ritual, followed by a relaxing massage with unique essences of love to balance the chakras and ends with a healing herbal bath in a tub carved from a black Zapote tree while meditating the Mayan words that will be written in couples hearts forever. For solo travelers, the Sac Ha’ (Harvest) ceremony is a healing ritual complete with a coffee scrub to cleanse and detoxify the body, followed by a relaxing massage under warm rain. It all leaves guests with a sense of peace and tranquility, while the skin regains energy and retains its natural beauty.
