Along with the traditional spa treatments of massages and facials, this spa also provides a culinary experience and private sessions with therapists – emulating more of a ‘wellness experience’ in true California style.
3. Sense Spa, Mayakoba
The concept of a ‘Sense Spa’ is born from a fusion of Asian spas’ aesthetics mixed with local character and its environment to create a familiar, yet contemporary experience for visitors and tourists.
