The Maroma Resort & Spa on the Riviera Maya in Mexico has tapped into the increased interest to all things Mayan for their 2012 marketing campaign. As time draws to an end on the Mayan calendar - an event some believe will signify the end of days - the resort has created a number of treatments and events related to the Mayan culture. Available throughout the year, guests can indulge in a Mayan menu or themed spa treatments at the resort's Kinan Spa - named after the Mayan word for the healing energy of the sun - which are based on the four earth elements which are integral to Mayan beliefs. The experience is completed with visits to the many historical temples that surround the hotel, including Coba and Chichen Itza. A new permanent treatment room, called Maya Room, has also been created. The spa is looking to benefit from an expected increase in foreign tourists visiting the Chichen Itza region in the lead up to December 2012.
