Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen's Cenote Spa Wins 2018 World Luxury Spa Award; Design Inspired by Mayan Culture

Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen, Mexico, announces that Cenote Spa by Grand Hyatt was voted Country Winner for category “Best Unique Spa Experience” in the 2018 World Luxury Spa Awards. Designed by the world-renowned Sordo Madaleno architecture group, the spa seamlessly blends modern, contemporary design elements with Mayan-inspired textures and materials. The entire design of the spa is inspired by Mayan culture and their beliefs around the spiritual nature of cenotes. The inspiration is seen most notably throughout the stonework, lighting and fixtures. It covers 6,000 square-feet underground and brilliantly captures the serenity, rejuvenation and beauty of the region’s notable cenotes - this inspiration is seen throughout the spa’s intricate stonework, dramatic lighting, and textured layout. The Cenote Spa combines water and mangroves naturally throughout eight treatment rooms and specialty facilities, which include two double suites, hydrotherapy stations, a eucalyptus steam room, fiber optic chromotherapy showers, 82ft. lap pool, fitness center with Technogym equipment and workout studio, and full service salon. Mexican ingredients are used in their one-of-a-kind product and local blend called an Herbal Poultice, which helps relax muscles, while the potent herbs have therapeutic effects that can reduce inflammation, promote circulation, relieve joint pain and stiffness, calm muscle spasms, improve mobility and flexibility, boost the immune system and tone the skin. The massage treatments are influenced by Thai massage techniques. Upon entrance, guests are guided through different areas for relaxation prior to enjoying their choice of indulgent and holistic services, and treatments for massage, body and face.
