Experience Mayan Mystique at The Wayak Spa

Resident shaman José Collí is tasked with caring for the sacred garden.

Although The Wayak Spa at Viceroy Riviera Maya (Mexico) has a history of immersing guests in authentic indigenous rituals, it’s upping the ante and taking guests even deeper into the healing world of the ancient Maya with the introduction of a K’óben, a Mayan herb kitchen, and a new menu of restorative Mayan experiences available to guests in the privacy of their villas. The resort’s resident shaman, José Collí, hails from a long line of Mayan shamans from the Yucatan village of X-pichil. Collí is a master in cultivating and caring for a sacred garden of healing plants. Well-versed in the healing properties and uses of the indigenous flora, he conducts an individual consultation with guests to determine their needs and preferences before creating a customized healing experience for them. The spa also recently debuted the following four in-villa experiences.

Top’ Che ($232, 80 minutes) features a body scrub, a scalp massage, a sea salt scrub, and a warm body wrap using products made by Natural Benefits Cosmetics

Maya Reflexology ($197, 50 minutes) taps in to this ancient art of healing that connects and balances the body’s energy channels.
