Combines modern and ancient Mayan beliefs techniques.

The spa is an absolute must! The soothing natural stone and pebble flooring create a serene atmosphere and welcome you to dive into some incredible wellness opportunities. From rotating classes and daily rituals to a schedule of curated retreats, Sana's intuitive wellbeing programming combines ancient Mayan beliefs and techniques with emerging and effective wellness trends from Mexico and the United States. For example, their Mayan Full Moon Ceremony is a purification and healing ceremony held every twenty-eight days to coincide with the new moon. Participants are dually connected with planet earth and the cosmos using traditional Mayan practices. Get there forty-five minutes early so you can fully experience their wellness ritual.
Restaurant + Bar

Freshly harvested, fire-roasted produce.

The culinary program at Etéreo is crafted from native ingredients harvested and prepared to appeal to visitors and locals alike. In the mood for freshly made tortillas and fire-roasted corn? Head to Itzam, where guests can enjoy sustainable and organic shareable dishes. Che Che is inspired by Nikkei cuisine – the pairing of Japanese techniques with Peruvian and Brazilian ingredients. Enjoy dishes like Japanese tacos, raw oysters, tiraditos, and various small pates from maki to tartare. For a lighter fare, head over to the beachside El Changarro and poolside Alberca. Don't check out of Etéreo without tasting the Nicte-Xtabentun, Lime juice, and Heneque Liquor garnished with a flower at El Carrito. Pair those with the shrimp and mango tacos, they are delicious!
    Etéreo offers the ideal stay for those looking for a chic beachside paradise. Families and friend groups will be particular fans of their large accommodations with connecting rooms. Romantic vacations will also flourish here with their delicious culinary experiences and Auberge's signature wellness treatments.
