Waldorf Astoria Spa
Grounded in Place
STEP INTO A WORLD OF SERENITY AND WELLNESS
Surrender to the ebb and flow of nature, to the rhythm of the moon and the pull of the sea. The Waldorf Astoria Spa is a tranquil haven of healing and respite, designed to draw on the ancient and innate intelligence of traditional Mexican Folk Healing — known as curanderismo — honoring nature and the body through the use of rituals, herbs, and energetic healing. At Luna y Mar, we invite you to release that which is not serving you, to arrive fully, and to embrace every moment of this gift that is the present.
EACH ELEMENT THOUGHT THROUGH TO BRING YOU RELAXATION
Inspired by the moon, the sea, and the land around us, The Waldorf Astoria spa honors the traditions that came before us, stewarding ancient healing techniques passed down from generations before. Here, we embrace the phases of the moon; the powerful and nourishing effect of the ocean; and the deeply fortifying and enriching tradition of Mexican Folk Healing.
“Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.”
