Inside the Palmaïa, House of AïA, Experience

Palmaïa, The House of AïA, shares a secluded beach enclave with beautiful mangroves, just south of Playa del Carmen. Keeping watch over the sparkling blue tones of the Caribbean Sea, the luxury wellness resort harmonizes with stunning natural surroundings, providing its guests with a tropical sanctuary to connect with nature, and ultimately themselves.

This peaceful retreat embodies a plant-based ethos and Gifting Lifestyle concept, which invites guests to vegan gastronomy, top-notch mixology, cruelty-free amenities, and holistic activities, all included with their stay. The barefoot luxury design incorporates natural materials and organic forms to create spaces that are simultaneously inspiring and tranquil, including areas specifically designed for families and adults only.

Palmaïa, The House of AïA features 234 ocean-front guest suites, each with a private balcony, which come in a variety of ten different designs. Family options include Swim-Out Master and King suites, with other offerings in the form of Swim-Up King and Queen suites, Master suites, and even suites set up with high-speed Wi-Fi and Nespresso for a working holiday in paradise. Additionally, the Ocean Front and Swim-Out Meditation suites were dreamed up with a secondary room as a dedicated and private space for guests to elevate their own daily practices.

To support a personal development journey, The Architects of Life program was designed as a comprehensive wellness scheme for guests to achieve a deeper connection with the self, as well as those who surround them. Activities, which are included with every stay, engage participants with their subconscious through meditation, yoga, mind control, sound healing, and cacao ceremonies, to name a few. The Atlantis Spa enjoys a gorgeous jungle setting where guests can relax with massages that draw from a wealth of traditions, as well as energy healing therapies, and facial treatments.

Dining experiences spotlight plant-based menus (with some non-vegan options too), that encompass seasonal and carefully prepared dishes in a range of venues. Breakfast and lunch are served at Su Casa´s beach bar and restaurant, and there are dinner options aplenty, from Mar de Olivo´s Mediterranean plates, Mexican fine dining at Lek, and Ume´s Far Eastern fusion. Head to Eolo Beach Club for fresh mixology with the sand between your toes, or sip and swim at a choice of two pool bars.

Aside from focusing on some serious rejuvenation, water lovers can find their bliss in the resort´s four infinity pools that gaze over some 700 meters of untouched beach, plus two Jacuzzi-style plunge pools that blend into the beachfront jungle. Unwind on Balinese sun beds with dedicated beach service or play in the calm waters on stand-up paddleboards, while children are happily entertained at the hotel´s Kids Center, hosting Waldorf-inspired activities.

At Palmaïa, every detail is designed to promote reconnection, balance, and a sense of wellbeing.
