The Rainforest Revel in • Kath Eats


Whilst we have been in Mexico, I visited two of the 4 Mayakoba spas. Here’s a recap of the Nuam Spa on the Andaz and the Banyan Tree Spa. Additionally take a look at: Our Keep on the Andaz Mayakoba and Mayakoba Eating places.

Mayakoba Spas

When I’m making plans a commute, I all the time like to try the spas to peer if they’ve any in point of fact distinctive or cool services and products. Whilst a therapeutic massage or facial is all the time great, I attempt to reason why that I will get them for much less cash at house and I must spend my time taking part in the pool or the seaside (which I will’t do at house!). But if it rains, I’m the primary to pick out up the telephone and spot what’s to be had. That’s what took place later in our commute! Therefore, I used to be ready to consult with two other spas. 

Every of the motels at Mayakoba has a spa, and you might be allowed to ebook at any of them. Be warned: the costs are rather prime! $300-400 for a therapeutic massage or facial. But if I used to be surfing the Banyan Tree spa menu, I examine The Rainforest Revel in: an entire hydrothermal revel in. I knew we needed to do it! As you understand we’re sauna obsessed, and this used to be a as soon as in a life-time alternative! What I didn’t know used to be that the real revel in used to be method cooler than we despite the fact that it might be! Right here’s why.

Upon arriving we have been presented recent watermelon juice. Scrumptious! 

The Rainforest Revel in

The outline of The Rainforest Revel in is a huge imprecise: “Revel in an absolutely personal and personalised hydrothermal adventure that includes steams, saunas, themed showers, Jacuzzi, and jets. The Rainforest Path is designed to assuage and revitalize your frame presenting a really holistic and rejuvenating wellness revel in.”

What I knew going into it:

  • There have been 12 hydrotherapy options, together with saunas and steam rooms
  • It used to be a non-public revel in for simply the 2 folks (however you put on bathing fits!)
  • Our carrier used to be 90 mins
  • The price used to be simply shy of $400 for 2 other folks together with taxes and 20% gratuity. 

I assumed we’d simply be on our personal to hop between the sauna and a chilly bathe, but it surely ended up being a unconditionally guided excursion with particular improvements delivered alongside the way in which. We completely cherished it!

Prevent 1: The Rainforest Tunnel

Our information, Diego, led us to split locker rooms to develop into our bathing fits and meet within the Rainforest access. You’ll see simply past the floating bubbles the tunnel of rainforest showers that you just stroll thru to get began. Observe the stone trail to softly therapeutic massage your ft. We walked thru two times – it used to be a amusing get started. 

Prevent 2: Steam Room

Diego subsequent led us to a small round steam room. It used to be heat and steamy, after all. He gave us honey and sesame scrubs to hide our our bodies with after which rinse off with the bathe in there. We sat within the steam with the scrubs on for approximately 10 mins. Whilst you’ll do that carrier for one, I in point of fact loved having Thomas there to speak! I would possibly have got slightly lonely on my own. 

Prevent 3: Summer season Thunderstorm

Diego knocked to allow us to understand it used to be time to transport stations, we have been ended in the Summer season Thunderstorm bathe. This used to be a rain bathe with bathe heads on either side that used to be heat with excellent water power – like a summer season hurricane! We have been in there for possibly 3 mins. 

Prevent 4: The Finnish Sauna

We adore saunas, so this one used to be amusing. There have been two ranges, and the higher degree used to be considerably warmer than the decrease. I moved as much as the highest for five mins after which go into reverse. We got ice garments to place on our faces. We best stayed in about 10 mins however we have been SO HOT by means of the tip. Completely dripping in sweat and yearning ice. Which used to be nice for the reason that subsequent forestall used to be….

Prevent 5: Ice Fountain

I used to be slightly scared we’d need to do a chilly plunge (I haven’t completed one but and am terrified of chilly,  haha) however the ice fountain used to be best possible! We put ice everywhere us. 

Prevent 6: Arctic Mist Bathe

This bathe used to be cooler than the summer season hurricane however no longer chilly. It used to be so refreshing! We have been in there possibly 3-5 mins. 

Prevent 7: Steam Room #2

This used to be a brand new steam room that used to be slightly larger, with two bathe heads, and Diego mentioned it used to be warmer than the primary. We got an avocado-honey masks to place everywhere our our bodies and a tea tree masks to situation our hair (I cherished that!). We lathered up within the mask and allow them to soak in whilst the steam stuffed the room. The steam used to be so thick at one level that lets slightly see each and every different! We used the showers heads to rinse off the mask and funky off whilst we have been in there. Diego additionally gave us bins of water, and I drank all of the field! 

Prevent 8: The Power Pool 

Our ultimate forestall used to be the large room of swimming pools! There have been bubble chairs, scorching tubs, and waterfall bathe heads to drench us. Additionally they integrated some snacks and towels if you happen to sought after to calm down. We took a excursion throughout the stations – the bubble chairs have been my favourite as it felt such as you have been floating, and the bubbles have been HUGE within the scorching tubs, like lava mountains! Then we filmed some movies. 

Thomas residing his highest waterfall lifestyles!

Prevent 9: Again to the locker room

And that concluded our 90 mins! I needed we can have had slightly unfastened vary to do every other 10 mins of sauna and every other chilly bathe, however the time flew by means of. I’d 100% do that once more and counsel it to somebody visiting Mayakoba! It used to be not like any spa revel in I’ve ever had. I’d best warning those that in point of fact despise being scorching – you could no longer love the entire scorching rooms. Thomas and I each agreed that we needed one thing like this existed the place we are living. Optimistically Charlottesville gets a tub space someday one day! 

The Rainforest Indulgence

Now that we all know what the Rainforest Revel in is like, I’m tempted to do the Rainforest Indulgence subsequent time, which is the above revel in plus a complete frame scrub and an hour therapeutic massage!!! How wonderful would that be? It’s additionally $500 an individual, so it’s without a doubt no longer reasonable. 

Nuam Spa at Andaz Mayakoba

My 2d spa revel in took place on account of an afternoon of complete rain that took place on our 3rd day. If you must make hay whilst the solar shines, then you must make spa telephone calls when it rains. I referred to as the Nuam Spa at our hotel as a result of I knew their massages weren’t too pricey, and so they have been completely booked. However then I were given a choice again {that a} therapeutic massage spot had spread out! I took the appointment and used to be excited to make use of the facilities.

Great scorching bathtub!

The sauna

However my vacation spot used to be the sauna! It used to be highly regarded. So scorching that I needed to take off my Apple Watch (which I by no means do in Cville) after 5 mins. I were given great and toasty after which went to make use of the mist bathe. 

Cool mist bathe

I stay joking with my buddies who love chilly plunges that simply leaving the sauna is sufficient of a chilly plunge for me. However I feel this cool mist bathe is my new favourite option to go out a sauna! It used to be simply sufficient cool mist to refresh you with out taking your breath away. There used to be additionally an ice station subsequent door. 

Deep Tissue Therapeutic massage

When it used to be time for my therapeutic massage, I took off my bathing go well with and added a gown and used to be walked to slightly casita. My therapist did a meditation with me and an incense ritual to begin the carrier. The therapeutic massage used to be glorious. I like the aromatherapy touches! 

Later on, I used to be escorted to the lawn to experience some tea and a candy deal with made with amaranth and cocoa! 


Thomas sought after me to percentage that whilst I used to be getting a therapeutic massage within the rain, he used to be {golfing} within the rain! Thomas taking part in 18 holes used to be one more reason I made up our minds to head for the second one spa revel in. Golfing is his spa, and he cherished the route. They have been if truth be told putting in for a large Liv Golfing tournament (this weekend, I feel) so there used to be rather a lot happening. Thomas wish to play it once more when the solar is out!

Whilst I waited for him to complete {golfing}, I persevered to my spa day gazing the rain fall from our balcony plunge pool with my ebook.

That wraps up my recaps of our Mayakoba tropical holiday!
