Balancing the human senses through holistic harmony is elevated to the highest level at the Spa at Maya. From the simplest treatment to an extended sensory journey, skilled and caring therapists have but one goal – to create memorable experiences for guests.

Approaching the Spa at Maya is in itself the promise of something special. Descending by elevator to river level is like entering a secret realm of wellness and pampering. The lush river valley extends calm and tranquility as dappled sunlight adds highlights to the natural surroundings.

From the central reception pavilion, walkways wind through lush foliage to private treatment pavilions, which are complete with daybeds overlooking the valley – ideal for after-treatment relaxation and refreshments, and with bathtubs, outdoor showers and toilet facilities. With views out to the rainforest valley on one side and the vertical gardens of the valley wall to the other, the pavilions are personal havens in which to enjoy a variety of specialty massages, body re-charge treatments and extended spa packages.

For the ultimate reflexology recharge, Riverside Deck overhangs the energetic waters of the Petanu. It is here that flagging spirits are stimulated in this ancient healing therapy. On completion, the feet are wrapped to promote complete relaxation and deep absorption of the hydrating lotion.

For specific skincare concerns, Spa at Maya offers Pevonia Tropical Rejuvenation products and qualified professionals. Skin and repair facials using rich micro-emulsified gel and age defying collagen booster treatments – for both him and her – compliment the whole body focus that includes body scrubs and wraps.
