Reconnect with nature and step outside your comfort zone at Palmaïa, The House of AïA. The new Riviera Maya resort focuses on inner exploration and a respect for nature, offering visitors an array of experiences promoting self-discovery and spiritual wellness.
Two unique programs Palmaïa, The House of AïA offers are the Architects of Life program and the Rituals of Sound program. The former is led by the property’s in-house shaman and includes cacao ceremonies, yoga, sound healing, plant ceremonies and meditation. The latter pays homage to the music of Tulum and Mykonos, bringing in experimental musicians to perform on a daily basis.
All guestrooms are oceanfront suites with private terraces. Suites come in seven layout options, including open plans, layouts for families, suites with swim-out access to infinity pools and suites hidden in the jungle.
Four restaurants are on site, serving a range of cuisines, including Mexican, Thai, Caribbean and Mediterranean. A food truck offers a rotating menu.
A jungle spa provides ancient ceremonies and treatments that look at emotion as the root cause of physical pain.
“There is a growing community of unconventional thinkers and spiritual seekers that gather in small communities around the world to embrace creativity, music and the environment. Together we are creating a new modern collective consciousness,” said Alexander Ferri, founder, Palmaïa, The House of AïA. “Palmaïa was designed to be one of these gathering points, and currently the only natural, forward thinking beach enclave of its kind. A safe place where we can create positive change within the boundaries of modern society.”
For the next several weeks, we are compiling the thoughts and experiences of our staff, writers and readers about the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. As a travel publication, we’ve all been affected during these difficult times, as have many of our clients, friends, partners and more.
