Imagine a mystical place where ancient roots and sacred rituals interact. A paradise of eco-nuances and intangible delights cocooned between a lush jungle and the glistening Caribbean sea. This is Palmaïa, The House of AïA—an all-inclusive holistic and sustainable wellness resort on the gorgeous beaches of Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

And this is where you are invited to experience sound medicine through different stages, starting with an understanding of silence and meditation and building up to sounds and music in their purest forms. During this retreat, you will learn the basics of sound healing that will help you unblock energy centers to achieve balance and equilibrium, as well as establish a foundation of sound techniques to support your journey. Accompany this practice with healthy food, yoga, Pranayama and meditation. You will also be able to add-on cultural excursions including an ancestral cave tour and a private swim session in a cenote.

The House of AïA introduces Palmaïa, a luxury all-inclusive resort featuring oceanfront rooms, first-class service and plant-based dining.

Oceanfront Beach Resort
Oceanfront Beach Resort

Palmaïa is a newly constructed oceanfront beach resort featuring all oceanfront suites with private terraces and views of the Caribbean Ocean. Designed with sustainability in mind, the property strives to become one of the first true carbon-neutral properties in the world with no plastic water bottles and bathroom amenities that are refillable and made with 100% biodegradable ingredients and essential oils.

Plant-Based Menus
Plant-Based Menus

The House of AïA is the first resort of its kind to prepare all of its menus with plant-based ingredients—at the four restaurants, 24-hour room service and health café—while offering fresh, non-vegan items as optional add-ons. The founder’s vegan sensibilities merge with Executive Chef Eugenio’s inspired guidance to reveal a daily feast that is as exquisitely delicious as it is thoughtful and conscientious.

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Located in the city of Playa Del Carmen in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, this is the best of Mexico and the Caribbean all wrapped into one. The turquoise waters and white sand beaches collide with casual vibes and verdant jungle canopies. Palmaïa stretches along 2,300 feet of pristine beach in an exclusive area of Playacar.


Palmaïa offers guests oceanfront suites in seven categories, each with its own private terrace for sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. The layouts include a variety of luxurious suites—family-style with bunk-beds, open floor plan, swim-out access to infinity pools, views of the ocean-side jungle—all designed without sacrificing environmentally-friendly practices. Each guest is assigned a Nomadic Guide to attend to their needs throughout the stay. And, for children, Palmaïa operates a holistic activities program run by certified educators.
