Ikal Del Mar, Xcalococco, Playa del Carmen

 

Pathway thru JungleCouple walking along beachPool at sunset

Ikal del Mar is a secluded refuge carved from the primitive Mayan jungle near the small village of Xcalacoco. To ensure that the resort will blend seamlessly with this undeveloped territory. Twenty-nine villas, each with a private pool, have been carefully constructed from natural wood and stones indigenous to the region.

In keeping with its serene setting, the resort will allow no motorized vehicles on the property. At night, artificial lighting will not dim star-filled skies. Torches, adding to the tranquil ambience of this unique retreat, will light the grounds instead.

The jungle was here before us and we believe that we are intruding upon it. For this reason, paths and walkways carefully meander avoiding older growths. Younger trees are allowed to grow within the paths, further reinforcing our philosophy.

The full service spa at Ikal del Mar--a sanctuary for the senses--offers its guests a holistic experience in the Riviera Mayan tropical spa setting. The Spa offers a steam room, jacuzzi, swiss showers with adjustable water pressure, and individual treatment areas. There is also a sea-side spa area for Temazcal bath, massages, facials, treatments, Tai Chi, and Yoga.

The sea is a fountain of energy, where we achieve equilibrium, comfort and we gain the ability to restore indispensable elements necessary for life. Mexico's Mayan Riviera is blessed with one of the worlds most extensive varieties of native herbs and this is a great asset when we speak of health. For these reasons, our treatments offer an excellent combination of natural marine elements with native herbs and aromas.

The Temazcal bath is our specialty of the house combining a cleansing sweat bath with herbs, flowers, music, and a soothing massage. The word Temazcal, in Nahuatl language, is a combination of the words Temaz, meaning bath, and Calli, meaning home. The ceremony was practiced by the Mayans and other indigenous groups as a therapuetic and purifying ritual.

We also offer a full service beauty salon.

Spa services are available from 9:00am to 8:00pm daily. Appointments should be made preferably 24 hours in advance.

Ikal del Mar is just right for an unforgettable and magical ceremony. Get married on the beach, pool side, during sunrise or sunset, or under the starlit sky. As the ocean waves recite their sonnets and whisper sweet melodies in the background, the vibrant energy that surrounds Ikal del Mar will seal your ceremony with blessings of prosperous tomorrow's.

Vibrant lush shades of green from the surrounding jungle accompanied by the splash of turquoise blue from the Caribbean sea and infused with the bright orange-yellow streaks reaching out from the sky will act as the perfect background for the ideal setting.

Your first days together are days that should be filled with magic, love and spirituality. These days are the base from which a couple will build the rest of their being. The tranquility and peacefulness that surrounds Ikal del Mar will allow for the inner peace and spiritual energy to weave a special bond between the couple. The poetic sounds of nature will fill hearts with sweet recollections never to be forgotten. Luxurious Villas with private pools will act as a nesting ground where the only worries are which champagne will accompany what exquisite dishes.
