Description


Surrounded by pearlescent white sands and the Mayan jungle, Viceroy, Riviera Maya - an intimate, adults-only resort - lies tucked away in the small village of Playa Xcalacoco, just outside Playa del Carmen. The resort has been designed to mirror Riviera Maya's impressive landscape, with meandering pathways leading to palapa-roofed stucco bohíos (villas), all decorated with marble floors, wicker furnishings, Egyptian cotton linens and bright blue accents and each featuring a furnished terrace, private plunge pool and an outdoor rain shower. Guests may start their day with a yogic sun salutation before heading to the beach or swimming pool to soak up the sun – sombreros are provided by the pool if the sun gets too much – whilst a fitness studio, luxury spa and temazcal (sweat lodge) are on hand for those seeking to energise themselves. There are two restaurants serving contemporary Mexican cuisine with Mediterranean influences and fresh seafood, grills and pizzas. With special touches, such as the welcome blessing performed by a Maya shaman and a Soap Concierge slicing you a bar of handmade soap, this is a resort quite unlike any other.

Wayak Spa
Utilising the wisdom of ancient Maya traditions, combined with marine elements from the sea, an eternal source of regenerative energy, and herbal elements from Mexico’s tropical forest, a treasure trove of natural curatives, the special Phyto-dermo-cosmetic products used in treatments at Wayak Spa have been designed to replenish and restore equilibrium to body and soul.

Temazcal
A temazcal is a traditional Mexican steam bath, similar to the Native American sweat lodges, and takes place in a round, domed structure (also referred to as a temazcal) made of stone or mud. The word temazcal originates from the Aztec, ‘calli’, meaning 'house' and ‘temas’, meaning vapour or steam. The stones represent generations of grandmothers who embody the knowledge of the Earth, whilst the structure itself is symbolic of Mother Nature’s womb. Through the use of steam and healing herbs, the temazcal purifies the body, promoting physical wellbeing, whilst the ritual itself is said to encourage reflection and introspection, helping you free yourself of that which is no longer required, so that you can live life completely in the present.

In Addition

During your stay, you might find yourself participating in a Tequila and Ceviche-tasting. During an account of the spirit’s history, you’ll learn the difference between añejo and reposado whilst the Maestro Tequilero directs you in the the correct drinking method for at least three high-end tequilas - each accompanied by a sangrita chaser.

Weddings & Honeymoons

Mayan Wedding Ceremony (Mayan Kamnikte Ceremony)
This unique ceremony is a heartfelt Mayan ritual performed by a Shaman, who, following the traditional rites, begins the ceremony with a purification ritual in which he addresses himself to the four cardinal points of the Earth, asking for permission to bless your union with love, peace and abundance. Following sacred customs, the bride is requested to dress in a traditional handmade Mayan wedding gown and the groom in white linen, Guayabera (shirt) - both symbolic of a new beginning. As the end of the ceremony, you can make a gift of fresh flower petals to the sea, asking that your hopes and dreams be fulfilled. The ceremony is performed in the Mayan dialect, with guidance provided in English.
