Going to the spa while on vacation is somehow so much more enjoyable and relaxing than while at home living our busy lives. Justin and I visited The Willow-Stream Spa while staying at the FAIRMONT Mayakoba… and the treatments were probably the best we’ve ever had… I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful it was!! I had the Honey in the Heart treatment…this pampering experience began with a honey body mask… which nourishes and hydrates the skin before being removed with a rainforest rinse!! It then was finished off with a massage and a sip of honey!!! I didn’t even know this type of treatment existed!!!
The Spa is in a detached building (…it is seriously massive) including a couple’s suite, two mineral roof top pools and steam rooms!!!! The best part is it’s overlooking the treetops of the tropical forest!!! It is situated amongst five different eco-systems and the home to a colony of native Melipona becheeii bees that reside in the hotel’s Willow Stream Spa Garden. FAIRMONT Mayakoba encourages community involvement and the conservation of Riviera Mayan Culture…which I find SO cool and extremely smart! The hotel works closely with the local community to help support their business. There is even an ON SITE Ecology Manager that helps oversee additional eco – tourism to promote environmental sustainability.
They have a full spa service menu to choose from inspired by the Mayan culture with the five elements by air, water, earth, wood and fire incorporated into the treatments!!!!! Totally unbelievable and unforgettable… One of the best things we did all week!
So many people are asking where my one piece is from but it’s sold out EVERYWHERE right now!
