Palmaïa - The House of AïA

Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo

Palmaïa, The House of AïA, invites guests to celebrate the complexity of the Riviera Maya while reconnecting with nature, the sanctity of life, and the true human spirit.

In a region dotted with resorts and hotels, Palmaïa stands apart with its location between a pristine white sand beach and cool-water cenotes on the cusp of the undisturbed jungle, and thoughtful programming created for guests to explore and step outside their usual comfort zones.

Life Program and Personal Growth

The Architects of Life program, led by the resident Personal Growth Guide, offers wellness practices such as such as cacao ceremonies, yoga, multi vibrational sound healing, meditation, plant ceremonies, and ancient practices. While the Rituals of Sound program features experimental musicians, who transport guests through curated deep beats and deep-fusion electronic music with acoustic overlays.

Four restaurants with plant based menus

For families, Palmaïa has spacious vegan friendly suites with bunk-bedding for kids and operates the only holistic fun children’s activities program in hospitality run by certified Waldorf Educators. While on property, guests can dine from a selection of four restaurants along with a rotating food truck, each serving plant-based menus with a few non-vegan options.

Jungle Spa Atlantis

The resort also includes a jungle spa, Atlantis, where ancient ceremonies like the storied Temazcal are included in the menu of services. At Atlantis, one is guided by the Book of the Nine Paths to Health, designed to treat emotions as root causes rather than physical pain.


Guided by the philosophy that personal growth is the path to connect with Nature, Palmaïa was conceptualized without disturbing the original landscape of nature. The resort was designed with sustainability in mind and strives to become one of the first true carbon-neutral properties in the world. Additionally, guests will not find single use plastics on property and all bathroom amenities are vegan and made with 100% biodegradable ingredients and essential oils.

PalmaÏa is a gifting community and provides everything guests need in the cost of a stay, so guests can enjoy unrestricted access without the hassle of exchanging currency.
