About Maroma Resort and Spa
The quiet spirituality of the Mayan people was the guiding inspiration behind Maroma Resort and Spa, a majestic hacienda-style property surrounded by 200 acres of lush rainforest and palm tree-fringed, white-sand beach that has been voted the best in the world by the Travel Channel. Maroma’s Kinan Spa features an alluring array of indigenous treatments, including a traditional Mayan temazcal, and was designed according to sacred geometry principles that were calculated by Mayan astrologists and constructed by native artisans.

Kinan, translated as “the source of the sun” in Mayan, extends 7,000 square feet, handcrafted from materials such as Zapote trees and conchuela by the family of native masons and woodworkers who originally built the resort. Designed to reflect Mayan sacred geometry, the spa houses several treatment spaces that include two couple’s rooms, outdoor massage palapas, a rooftop tower with panoramic jungle and sea vistas, and areas with private gardens; other amenities include a steam bath, saunas with cold plunge pools, and a temazcal, the Mayan version of a sweat lodge.
Kinan Spa treats guests to locally inspired holistic treatments that utilize natural ingredients and ancient Mayan therapies. Unique offerings include the signature Kinan Ritual, a combination of an herbal wrap and exfoliation, followed by a four-hand massage incorporating lomilomi techniques. Medical spa services—injectables, cellulite treatments, body reshaping, and more—are also available.
