Kempinski Hotel Cancún’s Kayantá Spa is welcoming travelers this season with an array of soothing Mayan therapies for a regenerative getaway in the Mexican Caribbean. Ahead of National Wellness Month, the luxury spa is enhancing its current menu and treatments to restore a sense of balance and wellbeing with the use of indigenous ingredients from the Yucatán Peninsula, all provided by a team of trained therapists that deliver a personalized and private experience.

From the moment guests arrive, they’ll be transported to a relaxing oasis that encompasses all their senses, from touch to taste and smell. The spa amenities include relaxation lounges, steam rooms, aromatherapy and Swiss showers, as well as garden patios, which feature whirlpools and cold plunge pools.

“Kayantá stands for rebirth, which is the journey that we want to inspire in our guests once they come in for their treatments,” says Ixchel Engel, Spa Manager at Kempinski Hotel Cancún. “Their wellness experience starts from the moment they enter the spa and connect with our team of trained therapists. The goal is to really understand the daily activities that might be causing stressors in their bodies and tailor each treatment to help them leave refreshed.”

The collection of massage therapies, facials, retreats and services like hot stones massages and hair and eye treatments satisfy every area in need of revitalization. Kayantá Spa incorporates local traditions and ingredients, with treatments that include Mayan honey and herbs or the Flor de Mayo flower, from the Yucatán Peninsula.

To start the wellness journey, guests will first be greeted by their spa attendant who will guide them through the hydrotherapy experience and help create custom tea-blends that can match their aromatherapy treatments. Once the treatment is finalized, visitors can expect a selection of pastries and refreshments in the relaxation lounge.

Blending Local Elements and Techniques in Each Treatment

During National Wellness Month, Kayantá Spa is introducing the Shirodhara Therapy. The traditional Ayurveda therapy stimulates the central nervous system using a stream of warm aromatic oil in the third eye chakra (Ajna Chakra), which is linked to perception and awareness. The gentle pressure and soothing warmth allows the body and mind to experience a deep state of rest, similar to a meditative state. This 80-minute session includes a full body massage, pouring of warm oil to the forehead and a  scalp massage.

One of the most popular treatments at the spa is the signature Kayantá Massage, which features techniques such as Swedish deep tissue, trigger point therapy and reflexology with relieving stretches and warm stones to help relax deep seated tension.

For those seeking to nourish their skin, the Sac-Nicté Journey offers a luxurious and deeply hydrating body treatment that will leave your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated. The journey incorporates a soothing massage with essential Flor de Mayo oils to provide a calm and relaxing environment, followed by a full body exfoliation and a honey-infused body mask.

Expecting mothers on a baby-moon also get a turn at relaxation with the spa’s most unique treatment, The Sijil Prenatal Massage, designed for pregnancy-associated stresses. Utilizing safe and effective techniques, a therapist will work to soothe tired muscles, increase circulation and reduce tension with nourishing shea butter balm to help increase skin elasticity and leave the skin smooth.

Kayantá Spa features top tier brands like Eminence Organic Skin Care from Hungary for tailored facial treatments, Moroccan Oil for hair treatments, Pytomer from France and  other tailored products created by one of the best rated laboratories in Mexico.

In addition to the spa, the hotel provides a state-of-the-art fitness center with cutting-edge cardio and weight-training equipment. The fitness center also offers salsa classes and yoga with a professional yogi to guide guests through a series of physical postures linked with conscious breathing and fluid movements that develop core strength, detoxify the body and clear the mind.
