My Spa Day at Azulik
In Lak’ech is a Mayan greeting of love, of unity, of acknowledgment, and comprehension of everything and anyone. Today I want to share with you a review of my spa day at Azulik.
I’m not going to lie to you, one of the main reasons I booked a flight to Tulum was to experience what could possibly be the most talked-about hotel in the social media world, Azulik.
Upon arrival, you are received with the warmest welcome by the hotel staff and escorted through what can only be described as a luxurious jungle. After winding your way through a maze of tunnels and sacred waters you find yourself in the most intimate lobby, only to be lit by candlelit. Azulik has no electricity. Within seconds you are overcome with the strongest sense of relaxation and an energy that is truly indescribable.
The hotel is lined with water paths that weave through the entrance, lobby, and spa. The water paths serve as water mirrors that are constantly cleansing your surrounding energy and reconnecting you with yourself and nature.
You are transported to a utopia!
While I didn’t stay the night at Azulik, I was fortunate enough to spend an entire day at the Maya’s Spa, roam the hotel, and bask in the Caribbean sun at the private beach. Azulik books month in advance, however, if you are headed to Tulum, DO NOT leave without spending a morning or afternoon in Maya’s Spa. It’s important to note if you are not a guest or utilizing the hotel services you are unable to enter the hotel. Security is tight lovelies!
Through the use of ancient Mayan techniques, the Maya’s Spa focuses on reaching all the elements that impact our souls and physical bodies through, earth, water, air, fire, and sky. With an array of signature treatments to chose from, there is something for everyone. Regardless of the element you choose to cater to during your experience, the energies of the elements will help align you to the rhyme of nature.
Earth represents our body
Water moves our emotions
Air is thoughts and communication
Fire is our vital energy
Sky Higher spiritual realms
You may also choose not to partake in treatment and instead simply enjoy the amenities such as the sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi. This is a perfect option if you don’t necessarily want to have a treatment done but would still like to experience Azulik and Maya’s Spa. This is actually what I chose to do and I left feeling like a new woman!
Upon arrival, you are given a welcome foot cleansing with herbs and then led to your gender-specific area. You are provided with a locker, robe, towels, and slippers that you’ll never want to take off.
You are then guided to the sauna and steam room. During this time you are cleansed of all physical and spiritual impurities. I was fortunate enough to have both to myself, allowing me to really spend the time meditating and reflecting.
I was so in the zone that I didn’t realize I had been in the steam room for 15 minutes. Thank God the staff was aware of me because I honestly could have been in there for hours! From the steam room, I was escorted through another maze of water paths that led to the outside. I had no idea where we were going but based on my surroundings I knew we were head to a gem of a place.
After turning a corner, I couldn’t help but stop! In the distance was a mosaic jacuzzi perched above the Caribbean sea! I looked at the staff member and joking said: “I hope that’s where we are going!”. She giggled and continued walking until she led me up a small flight of stairs to….the mosaic jacuzzi, just for me! I’ve been fortunate enough to have experienced many amazing things in this world, but this has to be one of the most magical!
I spent two hours in the jacuzzi and balcony attempting to intake everything I was witnessing, feeling, and experiencing. It was a sanctuary of the purest of energies!
I never wanted to leave.
Thank you to Azulik and Maya’s Spa for the most magical day! All opinions are my own.
