Join me at the newly constructed beachfront wellness retreat Palmaia, the House of Aia, located in Mexico’s stunning Riviera Maya, a stretch of Caribbean coastline on the Yucatán Peninsula. This retreat center offers guests a unique immersive jungle and beach experience with every room overlooking the warm, shimmering Caribbean Ocean.
Guided by the philosophy that connecting with nature is the path to personal growth, Palmaïa was conceptualized and built without disturbing the original landscape of nature. The property was molded around the native jungle and cenotes rather than destroying or replacing them. Thanks to this thoughtfulness, there are ample outdoor locations to spread out and socially distance throughout the resort. From a vast array of outdoor dining options, access to a pristine beach, and numerous healing spaces, you will find yourself effortlessly settling into the calming rhythms of this natural setting.
Start your day out with a dynamic yoga practice with Ingrid on the beautiful Ritual’s Deck. This elegantly constructed circular wooden platform is nestled in the mangroves and is an oasis of energetic space. It was hand-constructed around the trees, so you are immersed in the vitality of the jungle as you practice.
After a rejuvenating yoga practice, take your breakfast outdoors on their gorgeous outdoor dining deck. Sustainability and delectable flavors are on the mind of world-renowned head chef, Eugenio Villafaña. All meals, sparked by his imaginative culinary brilliance, are served to order (no buffets at this resort, both for sanitation purposes, as well as first-class, detailed service), with the highest quality ingredients including, same-day caught seafood for non-vegan eaters.
After filling your belly with delicious handcrafted food, consider a bike ride through Palmaïa’s lovely community, and be sure to seek out the namesake of the resort, AïA herself. This magnificent sculpture was built to remind humanity of hope. She represents our connection to nature, and our interconnection on this planet both physically and energetically. For the Mayans, AïA represents the source of life, with her arms reaching out and embracing an island of life, and in her center lies a stupendous Lemurian Quartz crystal — the keeper of the knowledge. AïA holds on to life, reminding us to treasure and protect our verdant Earth. In keeping with this holistic ideal, the AïA sculpture was conceptualized by Palmaïa’s founder, and built with local materials and left-over pieces from the construction of Palmaïa. The monument is meant to serve as a reminder to all, of the preciousness of life in our delicate ecosystem. Truly a vision and celebration of life itself after a year of such devastation.
In the afternoon, enjoy a therapeutic massage or energetic healing treatment at the spa, located on property on the jungle side. This one-of-a-kind spa offers nine energy centers, which are private buildings built with floor to ceiling windows to help you connect with nature during your t. The buildings are cool under the shade of the jungle, and quiet for ultimate privacy and relaxation. An experience like no other, the spa offers luxury and sanctuary for those seeking optimal healing.
Whether your healing sojourn draws you towards a walking meditation along the jungle path (also named the “Health Trail”), Vipassana meditations, mandalas, a sunset green juice at the stunning open-air bar on the beach (with or without mezcal), or simply some quiet time in the various meditation spaces scattered around the heart of the Mayan jungle, you will find what your heart desires for rest and respite at on this retreat.
