The Revive Spa at Mahekal

We recently visited the Revive Spa in the Mahekal Beach Resort in the center of Playa Del Carmen. This spa is a hidden gem in Playa Del Carmen. We are sure guest of the Mahekal Resort as well as outside guest will enjoy it here. This is the perfect place to get away for some pampering or a girls day out at the spa. What makes this spa different is the natural setting on the resort property that adds to the relaxing atmosphere.

Like everything on our website we visit all the places and experience them. So here is our report as well as photos we took in the spa. We did not take photos while we were getting treatments because we really wanted to enjoy the space. We do however have some video of this spa in our article and video about the Mahekal Resort.

Inside the Revive Spa and their facilities

The first thing you will notice as you go into the spa are the large windows looking out at the garden, candles and good smells in the welcome area. After you check in your first stop is the locker room. There are both men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, bathrooms, lockers, sandals, and robes. There are touched of local woods and shells.

Once you have changed you come to the first part of the spa. In the central area you will find this jacuzzi pool. Here you can look up at the center of the building. The roof is a traditional Mayan thatched roof so it set the setting for this special location. This is a perfect area to relax especially if you are with a group and taking turns getting massages.

Before and after massages they have this relaxation room. Here you can recline and be wrapped up in your robe while you relax. The natural light coming in, trickling fountain and relaxing music really set the mood. They have tea and other beverages to offer you here.

  1. I am so glad you wrote about this hotel. I have been on the fence to stay at Mahekal. It seems to be in the city so much that it might not feel resorty enough. I think with your video, I will stay there. Thanks.

  2. I recommend this spa because the setting is paradise! Very relaxing and hidden part of Playa del Carmen. A really nice find in Playa.

  3. I enjoyed many good massages here over the year. We visit Mahekal when we can and keep returning to stay there when in Playa Del Carmen.
