Reestablish The Connection Between Mind & Body At Palamaïa House of AïA.

Updated: Jun 28, 2021

Imagine a mystical place born from the effervescent complexity of contemporary Mexico, where ancient roots and sacred rituals interact with an international confluence…

“Children should be introduced right from the start to the potentialities of their environment, to the physical and psychological laws that govern the visual world, and to the supreme enjoyment that comes from participating in the creative process of giving form to one's living space.”

—Walter Gropius

Truth & The Power of Search

It could be hard to find AïA’s sacred connection to nature, because the words we use to express AïA’s truth are not common search terms.

So we openly share the following terms and phrases, which are equally true, just not in a voice AïA might have chosen. We hope it makes finding her easier.

A secluded sanctuary with oceanfront swim up suites, jungle spa, gourmet restaurants overseen by chefs who have trained in Michelin starred restaurants from around the globe. Featuring locally sourced plant-based cuisine, seclude white sand beach, private terraces, infinity pools, and in-suite dining sets The House of AïA apart from other luxury wellness retreats. The exquisitely designed oceanfront suites complemented by stunning ocean views, elegant décor, and holistic amenities are unlike anything else in the Riviera Maya. The all inclusive resort offers a level of seclusion often associated with far-flung island resorts and an atmosphere of tranquility you would expect from a yoga retreat.

Guests will have the perfect opportunity to reestablish the connection between mind and body with guided meditation sessions, yoga classes, sound baths, energy healing, and more all while immersed in the vibrant jungle energy of the Mayan Riviera. The House of AïA also offers guests access to the excellent Atlantis Spa where jungle inspired architecture blends seamlessly together with modern design and tranquil treatment rooms. Guests can indulge in a number of spa treatments including ayurvedic treatments, Temazcal ceremonies, steam room sessions, relaxing massage, and more


Waldorf Inspired

Palmaïa operates a Waldorf-inspired, children’s activities program. All Child Care professionals are qualified personnel that create an environment which draws on avant-garde thinking, giving children opportunities to explore and nurture their senses in a natural way… and you can get away….

Device Free Area

Especially in today’s urban, ultra-connected world it’s important to find ways to disconnect from our networks and regenerate through nature. We help children return to their natural state by facilitating a connection to the rhythms of the natural world.

The Children’s Kingdom

7–year Cycles of Growth

We base our understanding of children’s developmental stages on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and his Anthroposophy. To create physical spaces and activities that are developed according to the 7-year cycles of childhood. At Awen, we serve the first two cycles and differentiate activities and spaces accordingly between each age group, ensuring an optimal experience.

A High Standard

Each teacher at Awen is committed to their own personal growth and development, which is what sets us apart. It allows each child to be recognized and received as a spiritual being in their own right, because they are and we see them as such.

A Kid Is Always a Kid

Children cannot pause between day-to-day life and “outside of the everyday” events like vacations. The child absorbs everything and makes it his own. We see the importance of offering a space that respects them with a deep knowledge of their emotional, physical, and spiritual moment—allowing them to explore naturally and trust this world we inhabit.

The Great Indoors

Holding space to play and rest is just the beginning…

We have designed a place that respects the moment each child is in, giving them the opportunity to meet, experiment and identify with their environment in a safe and positive way.

Architects of Life

Their personal growth guides have built a program based on an array of ancient rituals and practices, to explore deeper meaning and the mysteries of life, allowing us to connect to AïA through personal exploration of the physical body and the subconscious mind. Mind and Body guides from around the world make it the most comprehensive personal growth program ever offered at any resort on earth. One cannot love nature if one does not love oneself.
