Why You’ll Love It: One of the things guests enjoy most about Revive Spa are the natural products we use in our treatments. We use Kinich products, a complete line of 100 percent organically intelligent, local, home-grown products, which work wonderfully to balance one’s mind, body and spirit.

Spa-goers also appreciate the service—we have a great professional team of therapists full of talent and intuition and have an extraordinary capacity to customize each experience. Additionally, guests love that the spa’s design is inspired by the philosophy of the Mayans and are always impressed when they see the exclusive jacuzzi with the beautiful chandelier and palapa-style roof—it’s an amazing view!

Key Features: The spa itself encompasses 2,500 sq. ft. and is laid out in a round configuration to enhance the energy flow. There are palapa-style treatment rooms, a full-service beauty salon, Jacuzzi with a beautiful view, two indoor relaxation rooms, a VIP therapy room, men and women’s locker rooms, and a Zen Garden. Throughout the space there are aromatic plants, candles and essences, all of which are completely natural to balance the harmony in Revive Spa. Upon entering, guests are instantly transformed into a state of relaxation and peace.

Bonus: Guests can enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or freshly squeezed juice in the relaxation room before their treatments. We can also provide a an Auric field cleaning, where we work with copal around the body (copal is the resin of a tree of traditional and spiritual use in the Mayan culture).

Spa Snacks: We offer healthy snacks such as almonds and fresh fruit. We also have teas infused with local fruits (Jamaica, Orange, Chaya, etc.). One of the guest favorites is the "Te Forte,” which has a delicious flavor and a beautiful presentation.

Splurge Treatments: One of our most luxurious and restful experiences is a body wrap treatment in our private VIP suite, specifically designed for couples or someone who wants something exclusive! We also have the “Romance Revive" (jade and gold silver) treatment, which provides micronutrients for the skin and is regenerating, firming, detoxifying, decongesting, soothing and strengthens the immune system—resulting in beautiful, youthful skin full of light and natural shine. It truly is an amazing treatment.

Most Unique Treatment: The signature Revive 5 Senses is definitely unique. The therapist taps into all five senses—from a special treatment using various techniques of massage to give the skin a healthier and more radiant appearance (sense of touch), to the use of aromatherapy to enhance psychological and physical well-being (sense of smell), while tailoring the experience to the individual. You really feel rejuvenated!

Featured Products: We work with a very exclusive, 100 percent Mexican company, Phito-Dermocosmeceutica Inteligente. They create and market organic products that use the ancestral benefits of Mexican herbalism. Kinich products are also 100 percent natural and organic products used in the spa. Our treatments also contain local products such as aloe vera, nopal, arnica, rosemary, chamomile, chaya, agave, cocoa, honey, coconut, lima, etc.
