Upon arrival to Chablé Resort & Spa, spa-goers are invited to enjoy the spa’s hydrotherapy circuit, which includes a vapor steam room, a dry sauna, a salt room, a Jacuzzi, and a cool plunge pool. Each treatment begins with a consultation and an opening Mayan ceremony. The ceremony takes place in the Caracol Maya (meaning snail or shell in Spanish), a stone sculpture found at the entrance to the spa that represents the connection between the human being and the cosmos. Space is also referred to as the seashell due to its spiral shape. As guests enter the seashell prior to their treatment, a therapist follows behind with a burning mix of herbs that are grown on the property. The therapist then performs a Mayan chant acknowledging the four cardinal directions and energetic alignment while additional staff members outside the seashell play traditional Mayan instruments, such as the conch shell and drum. The treatment times are staggered so each guest can experience the ceremony and restful rest.
