Spa of the Week: El Dorado Maroma Náay

By Olivia Cuccaro

El Dorado Maroma Náay Spa - Spa of the WeekOnce reserved for Maldivian escapes, the tranquility of overwater accommodations has found its way to Mexico at El Dorado Maroma Riviera Maya. The first resort in Mexico to offer a stay of this kind, it’s only natural that the spa on site should mirror its peaceful ambiance with over-the-ocean treatment rooms of its own.

Náay Spa is comprised of a eucalyptus steam room, sensations pool, cold plunge pool, sauna, relaxation lounge and four capacious suites affording guests the option of indoor or outdoor treatments in the serene Riviera Maya surroundings. Location is everything, as the spa menu centers on the “Mayan vision” of wellness with holistic experiences, couple’s treatments, skin care by Natura Bissé, massages, body treatments, and salon services.

El Dorado Maroma Náay Spa - Spa of the WeekDesigned around traditional Mayan herbal practices and incorporating the region’s verdant marine life, Náay Spa offers therapies and treatments that feature Maroma’s Sea Moss, rich in mineral salts, antioxidant and detoxifying powers. Book the sea moss anti-aging facial, sea moss body detox, sea moss mineralizing ritual, relaxing sea moss massage or the sea moss mineralizing manicure and detox pedicure to get the most out of this special ingredient during your stay.

For an inherently Mexican experience, try the signature Tequila Ritual which combines the local spirit with melon extract to remove dead skin cells and improve circulation. A white clay wrap infused with blue agave and melon extract detoxifies before a rejuvenating 30-minute massage. Or, find your balance after a flight with an array of treatments created for the jetsetter to “vaya un poco más allá” (travel some more).

El Dorado Maroma Náay Spa - Spa of the WeekBreathtaking ocean views go uncompromised from the 30 overwater bungalows that make up Palafitos at El Dorado Maroma Riviera Maya. Spacious decks wrap around the elegant accommodations, featuring lounge chairs for bronzing by day and taking in the sunset at nightfall. Each bungalow affords guests the privacy of their own aguas del amor (waters of love) outdoor showers and infinity pool, while the sparkling ocean awaits just down a ladder from the deck. Once inside the 811-sq-ft suites, simply look down to see the inviting aquamarine water through a glass-bottom floor. Those who spend five or more nights in this Mexican paradise enjoy an intimate moonlight dinner on their private terrace, with seasonal cuisine presented under the starry Mexican sky by a resort chef.

El Dorado Maroma Riviera Maya, a Spa Resort by Karisma, is located at Carretera Cancún – Tulum, Km 55.3, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo México C.P. 77710. For more information, please visit
