Special features

Spa

Inspired by the Mayan phrase, ká a yaán tah, meaning “to be reborn,” Kayantá Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun is a lavish retreat offering total relaxation and renewal. Kayantá Spa boasts 8 treatment rooms, an ocean side palapa, herbal steam rooms, Swiss and open air showers, relaxation garden patios with whirlpools and cold plunge pools and Vichy showers. Water rituals, sea-side massage therapies, body treatments and facials influenced by the healing techniques of the local ancestors as well as ancient cultures from around the world, are delivered in a warm atmosphere enhanced by gracious personal attention.

Signature spa services include Lol-Ha, a traditional Mayan bridal bath uses plant extracts, crystals, and flower petals; the Zac-Xib treatment for men includes a vigorous body scrub, and a bath therapy with essential oils and plant extracts prepared as they were in ancient rituals for brave warriors; and the Sacred Piedritas Facial reflects the importance of stones in pre-Hispanic cultural rituals.
Guests under 16 are not allowed in the spa.

Exceptional Hotel and Service
The hotel was excellent with the most amazing staff and service. Great location. Décor a bit outdated but did not take anything away from the exceptional staff and service.

Need to update photo of waterview rooms.
Staff could not do enough. Would definitely return. When booking, the photos of waterview rooms on this site are not accurate. They are showing you waterFRONT views. Waterview will give you buildings, pool and water. There is definitely a difference.

The hotel is excellent but Mexico is not a safe pl
The Mexican tourism office needs to work on regulations to improve traveling safety. The corruption is rampant and very obvious. Any traveling arrangements should be made through a trusted hotel or agency.
