Palmaia, The House of Aia
In a region dotted with resorts and hotels, Palmaïa stands apart with its location between a pristine white sand beach and cool-water cenotes on the cusp of the undisturbed jungle, and thoughtful programming created for guests to explore and step outside their usual comfort zones.
The Architects of Life program, led by the resident Personal Growth Guide, offers personal growth practices such as such as cacao ceremonies, yoga, multi vibrational sound healing, meditation, plant ceremonies, and ancient practices. While the Rituals of Sound program features experimental musicians, who transport guests through curated deep beats and deep-fusion electronic music with acoustic overlays.
For families, Palmaïa has spacious suites with bunk-bedding for kids and operates the only holistic fun children’s activities program in hospitality run by certified Waldorf Educators. While on property, guests can dine from a selection of four restaurants along with a rotating food truck, each serving plant-based menus and non-plant-based options.
Guided by the philosophy that personal growth is the path to connect with Nature, Palmaïa was conceptualized without disturbing the original landscape of nature. The resort was designed with sustainability in mind and strives to become one of the first true carbon-neutral properties in the world in 2021. Additionally, guests will not find plastic water bottles on property and all bathroom amenities are refillable and made with 100% biodegradable ingredients and essential oils.
