Experience temazcal

Temezcal at One&Only Palmilla

Handed down throughout the centuries

An illuminating, awakening ritual, temazcal is an ancient Mayan ceremony led by our Shaman, a leader of the local indigenous Mayo tribe. Meaning ‘house of heat’, temazcal has been practised for health and purification since pre-Hispanic times.

The Temazcal Ritual

Unlike anything you’ve ever encountered, the temazcal ritual is a total body experience with drumming, chanting and intense perspiring that some describe as akin to being reborn.
