Sense Spa at Rosewood MayakobaRosewood Mayakoba will always bring good memories to mind because I stayed there on my honeymoon. The beautiful property is bound to create good wellness memories and habits for guests who are lucky enough to be there this weekend. In honor of Global Wellness Day, it is one of 12 Rosewood Hotels & Resorts properties participating in the campaign and will offer an authentic ritual in the morning followed by the first-ever Global Wellness Day Rose-Fit Race. “We are excited to celebrate Global Wellness Day at Rosewood Mayakoba,” says managing director Daniel Scott. "Guest wellness has always been our priority, whether at the spa, by the pool, or in our restaurants. At Rosewood Mayakoba, we pride ourselves on offering indulgence with awareness and have created a wide range of green and responsible on-property initiatives that maintain the resort’s environmental integrity and educate our guests in honor of Global Wellness Day.” In celebration of the global initiative, here are a few of Rosewood Mayakoba’s wellness-inspired activities throughout the day:

  • Sun Gratitude Ritual: Guests can begin their day paying homage to Mother Nature with an ancient, pre-Hispanic Sun Gratitude Ritual.   
  • Global Wellness Day Rose-Fit Race: Guests looking for a little friendly competition can participate in the resort’s inaugural commemorative triathlon, where teams of three will swim, bike and run through the property for a chance to win exclusive prizes. Open to ages 12 and up, this is a healthy activity for the whole family. 
  • Ecology Lesson: Guests can discover the importance of maintaining the environment during an interactive session with an on-property specialist that will guide guests through eco-sustainability and tree care.
  • Commemorative Pool Amenities: A healthy selection of poolside amenities will be offered to guests throughout the day, including passed goji berries and crudités, fresh coconut water, cucumber eye pads, and massages as well as the commemorative cocktail, the Aloe Margarita.
