Set between the tropical jungle foliage and the picturesque turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea sits the quintessence of a sustainable wellness resort. A secluded sanctuary with swim up suites, jungle spa, gourmet restaurants overseen by awarded chefs, locally sourced plant-based cuisine, private beach, infinity pools, and in-suite dining sets Palmaïa – The House of AïA apart from other luxury raiaetreats.
Guided by the philosophy that personal growth is the path to connect with Nature, Palmaïa was conceptualized without disturbing the original landscape of nature. The resort was designed with sustainability in mind and strives to become one of the first true carbon-neutral properties in the world in 2022 by compensating the energy Palmaïa uses by building solar panels on the resort and in other parts of Mexico. Additionally, guests will not find plastic water bottles on property and all bathroom amenities will be refillable and made with 100% biodegradable ingredients and essential oils.
Palmaïa offers travelers 314 oceanfront suites, each with its own private terrace for views of the Caribbean ocean in seven distinctive layouts. They include suites for families with bunk-bedding for children as well as open plan suites for adults, suites with swim-out access to one of the hotel’s four infinity pools; and suites nestled among the ocean-side jungle – all designed sustainably and without the use of animal products
Guests can dine from a selection of four restaurants, each serving ethically sourced food from trusted farms and fisheries around Mexico. Executive Chef Eugenio Villafaña, who has trained at numerous Michelin-starred restaurants, oversees the culinary programming. This includes creating parallel plant-based menus for each dining venue, a unique culinary offering in Riviera Maya and throughout the hospitality industry. The signature fine-dining restaurant LEK serves gastronomic Mexican; Mar de Olivio is a destination for redefined Mediterranean cuisine; and the Oriental-fusion restaurant Ume merges Thai and Continental cuisines for à la carte dinner experiences highlighting sensual fragrances, exotic flavors, and densely rich hues. Su Casa, an integrated beach bar and restaurant on the dunes offers a laid-back Caribbean beach ambiance.
The resort is a place where visitors can seek personal growth through the property’s curated rituals and deep connecting ceremonies.
One of the jewels of the experience is the Architects of Life program led by Balder, our personal growth guide. Alongside hand-selected visiting teachers and guides, Balder will lead guests through rituals such as cacao ceremonies, yoga, multi vibrational sound healing, meditation, plant ceremonies, and ancient practices that inspire reflection, exploration, and connection.
The resort will also feature a Rituals of Sound program that pays homage to the music environment of Tulum and Mykonos, but in a more exclusive relaxed setting available only to guests. Palmaïa will become a stage for creative experimental musicians who will transport guests through curated deep beats, and deep-fusion electronic music with acoustic overlays. These music rituals will take place in various forms daily from 4 p.m. until midnight allowing all ages to enjoy some conscious fun.
The resort also includes a jungle spa, Atlantis, where ancient ceremonies like the storied Temazcal are included in the menu of services. At Atlantis, one is guided by the Book of the Nine Paths to Health, designed to treat emotions as root causes rather than physical pain. Treatment rooms feature floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the foliage and are immersed between natural cenotes used for rituals and meditation.
