    Spa Facilities & Services

      Uma is the Aymara word for water. Water is a source of life, of revitalization. At Tierra we want to ensure that you experience the revitalization and luxurious rejuvenation you seek.

      Our Uma Spa boasts an outdoor swimming pool, a Jacuzzi and an indoor heated pool. The indoor pool has water jets, beds of bubbles and other playful features.

      Our three treatment rooms are cocoons with candles, light music and aromatherapy oils.

      Discover our facials, massages, body wraps and scrubs, body treatments and alternative therapies using natural desert elements such as volcanic mud, lithium rich salt and desert herbs. The steam room or Turkish bath is lovely after a day in the dry air of the desert.

      We also invite you to indulge in our first-ever Adventure pairing menu. Created by our health and expedition experts, the pairings match the demands of each adventure with the perfect spa treatment for my, body and soul.


        We can recommend spa circuits and routines using the pools, steam, bath and rest. Our facials and manicures are the finishing details you need to feel luxuriously pampered. We've also set aside tranquil spaces for meditative relaxation where rica rica herbal tea and cold cucumber water are served. Large windows provide a wonderful view of the land outside.
