Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen

Located on Mamitas Beach, Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen is situated in the heart of Playa del Carmen, not far from this resort town’s famous 5th Avenue. They have a smaller but intimate 6,000 square foot spa named after the natural water features that are sacred to the indigenous people – The Cenote Spa is a calming sanctuary where you can enjoy an obsidian hot stone massage and many treats and treatments with Mexican plant extracts like aloe and cacao.

Rosewood Mayakoba

Brilliantly built along winding lagoons and a mile‐long arc of pristine crystalline beach, Rosewood Mayakoba is last but definitely not least on this list. A palapa-roofed boat brings you to your room’s private dock where you can then enjoy the luxurious and beautifully designed suite. Rosewood’s 17,000-square-foot Sense Spa is designed pretty much like a retreat-within-a-retreat, where guests journey across a bridge to reach the private spa island. Wooden walkways lead to a limestone cenote and a swimming pool. There are separate spa facilities for men and women that include therapeutic plunge pools, steam grottos, saunas and different types of showers. They even have a junior spa menu for the little loves in our family to get pampered too.
