Luxury Resorts & Spas: Now this is something not even Hercule Poirot could conjure up (come on, you know you love PBS). The Orient Express offers more than dinner and intrigue--their famed Maroma Resort and Spa is now offering a series of Yoga retreats that bring together the "om" and the "ahhhhh" at their luxurious Kinan Spa. The retreats, which are based on overall wellness, include daily progressive yoga classes (combination of Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Iyengar), meditation sessions, spa treatments, a healthy gourmet cooking class, and a menu which includes healthy options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Located on the Riviera Maya on one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand beach in the world, this 65-room boutique hotel and spa was built based on Sacred Maya geometry, which ensures positive energy flow. Its Kinan provides a sanctuary not only for spa treatments but for meditation and yoga with a rooftop yoga pavilion that captures tropical breezes, and 360 degree views of ocean and jungle vistas. Guests can indulge in the ultimate retreat by staying in one of the exclusive Sian Nah suites (the "House of Heaven" ocean front suites), which include their own in-room spa treatment area, fitness area with equipment, a living room, a bedroom, a spacious outdoor terrace with private plunge pool, lounge area and dining palapa.
Yoga retreat packages with accomodations in a Sian Nah Suite start at $6,640 for single occupancy; double occupancy rates start at $8,015 (excluding tax and gratuity). More information is available at www.maromahotel.com or by calling 1-866-454-9351.
