My girlfriends spent a day at the Maya Spa in Tulum and had an amazing time! We all got different treatments.
I started off with a Mayan Clay Massage. The treatment is done in one of their beach front huts, so you can feel the breeze and hear the ocean during your treatment. This treatment is essentially a skin treatment - an all over body mask, but with a little bit of massaging as they apply it. After Jessica had gone over my body with two layers of mud she instructed me to take a bath in the ocean. She gave me a guazy wrap to wear into the water since I was a little shy about going in topless! It was a great treatment, very relaxing and affordable and my skin felt great afterwards!
Next I had a relaxing massage, again by Jessica. This is just your typical massage - but it was fantastic! The best massage I've ever had. She used oil that had some sand in it, so I got some exfoliation as well.
At the last minute I decided to add on a mayan bath. This is a speciality of the spa, something you can really only get there. I am SO glad I decided to do this treatment! If you are only going to get one thing - get this!
We actually had to drive to the Zahra reort a little ways down the road for this treatment. When I got there, I was led to the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean - absolutely breathtaking! I laid on a table and received a full body exfoliation with sugar and honey. Then I transferred to the bath, where Graciella bathed me in water soaked with steaming herbs and flowers. She applied the mud to my face and hair and relaxed me by passing steaming herbs under my nose. She exfoliated my feet and did some chanting. Afterwards, Graciella instructed me to gather the flowers from my bath and offer them back to the sea. She said that my feelings had transferred to the flowers. Then we moved back to the table and she rubbed me down with oils and lotions. I left that treatment smelling absolutely incredible! My friends kept smelling me for the rest of the day. It was such a relaxing, indulgent treatment - two thumbs waaaaay up!
I should also mention the pool and snack bar area at the spa. While we were waiting on our treatments, we lounged in a small fresh water pool and had rum punches from the bar. When we got hungry we ordered some food - and the ceviche they served was the best I've ever had! Several kinds of fish, even octopus! We met two lovely girls from Brittian there who invited us to see their hut - they were actually staying at the spa. It was very cool. No electricity and a thatched roof. Lots of candlelight and mosquito netting. Very romantic and different!
