Kinan Spa at Maroma Resort and Spa Kinan is the Mayan word for the energy of the sun. Similar to the Asian concept pf Chi, Kinan it is often used to refer to the individual inner energy. Opened officially in March 2005, this fabulous addition to the luxurious Maroma on Mexico’s Riviera Maya offers a full range of spa services in unique environments ranging from treatment rooms with private gardens, open-air massage palapas and a rooftop yoga pavilion with 360-degree views of Maroma’s dual ecosystem the jungle and the sea. The Kinan Spa in the Riviera Maya was handcrafted by the same family of Mayan stonemasons that has been working with Maroma founder and architect, Jose Luis Moreno, for over three decades. Each building ant treatment room has been aligned to the stars to ensure positive energy flow so the body, mind and spirit are in harmony. White and cream stucco finishes, carved niches, handmade floor tiles with river stone borders, hand-hewn beams made from the native zapote trees and mahogany furnishings and gurgling fountains and pools surrounded by tropical gardens provide the authentic and soothing environment, while strategically placed windows and thatched alfresco corridors bring sunbeams, fresh ocean breezes and bird songs from the jungle. Healthy Yucatan-inspired cuisine is prepared by Maroma’s chef, which can be enjoyed poolside, in the open-air Cilantro Café or in the privacy of your treatment room. Spa packages that combine luxurious spa room accommodation with daily spa and fitness programs are available and can be custom built based on client preferences and needs.
