Rosewood Mayakobá in Mexico

Situated on a mile-long arc of white sand in the luxury enclave of Mayakobá on the Riviera Maya, this 1,600-acre resort features stunning suites in a unique lagoon setting. Although everything about it is noteworthy, its draw is the 17,000-square-foot Sense spa, which resides on its own private island big enough for twelve treatment rooms and eight luxurious spa suites, each with a treatment room, bathroom with outdoor garden shower, terrace with plunge pool and rooftop sundeck. Other spa amenities include a heated pool, fully-equipped gym, juice bar, saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzi, cold plunge pool and relaxation areas, as well as yoga and meditation classes and Itzamná café, serving healthy cuisine. Among the many treatments, the Temazcal Ritual is not to be missed. This indigenous therapy uses a purifying herbal steam bath to bring a sense of balance and inner harmony.
