Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya Debuts Naum Spa

Local Ingredients and Indigenous Mayan Methods Refresh Guests at Mexican Property

RIVIERA MAYA, MX. April 24, 2017 – The brand new Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya is proud to officially debut their on-property Naum Spa. The 10,000-square-foot hideaway in the center of the resort is home to six open and airy treatment cabins and two hydrotherapy areas, offering a complete, customized menu of refreshing and rejuvenating services, many of which incorporate indigenous Mayan methods. The décor is uncomplicated and intended to connect the guests with the jungle setting and envelope visitors in a verdant and lush environment. The treatments, coined ‘Naum Rituals’, were developed based on native Mayan traditions known as rituals, which are reflective of the mind, body and spirit. The spa’s namesake, Naum, is the Mayan God of consciousness and mind.

The Naum Rituals were created to pay homage to oneself and the Mayan Gods, and to find harmony based on the guest’s selected area of wellness intention – whether that be Clarity (Tsoolik), Rest (He’lel), Strength (Muuk’) or Connection (Molcintah). Each Ritual is a three-part experience, alluding to the balancing nature of the number three with a beginning, middle and end. The Ritual begins with a Mayan Time of Reflection, followed by the treatment experience itself, and concludes with a Mayan Celebration to help guests balance and reconnect with themselves and the universe.

The spa hosts and wellness therapists work with guests to customize every aspect of the treatment, including the hand-selected products – many of which have been created with natural, locally inspired ingredients. Upon arrival at the spa, therapists work with guests to identify wellness intention, treatment focus and ingredients of choice, and from there, a Ritual will be selected. Guests can also choose to take part in an interactive aromatherapy bar where they can design their own custom products and scents.

Rituals include Naum Ritual of the Body, a three-part wellness experience with exfoliation, deep hydration and a nurturing massage or body balancing treatment; Naum Ritual of the Face, a deep cleansing experience, personalized treatment plan and personalized protection for the individual’s skin type including a facial massage and treatment mask; and Naum Ritual of Massage, a customized spa experience with options such as hot stones, bespoke aromatherapy blends, Swedish or deep tissue. Many of the rituals are based upon a different tradition in the Mayan culture – Body Rituals were commonly used for preparation of marriage, battle or to celebrate the changing seasons, while Massage Rituals were considered healing arts. Guests can choose from a 75-minute, 90-minute or 120-minute ritual experiences in each realm starting at $190; as length of treatment session grows, the deeper the spa experience becomes and the more elements are added.

The spa will also offer an array of additional services ranging from hairstyling, waxing, skincare, nail care and cosmetic services to lifestyle options including yoga and meditation. The facility also includes a 24-hour state-of-the-art gym and three outdoor pools.

“Naum Spa is a beautiful addition to the Andaz Mayakoba property and the Andaz experience as a whole, blending into the natural surrounds and truly encapsulating the Mayan culture with unique, locally-inspired treatments,” said Spa Manager Daniel Escalante. “Personalization is key, and Naum Spa invites guests to create their own, fully customized rituals to wellness. We are confident guests will leave with a true sense of harmony, balance and tranquility.”

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
