A Hammock That Brings You World-Class Comfort

There’s nothing quite like taking some time for yourself to unwind after a day that seems to drag on forever. Whether it be cozying up to a cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter evening or sipping on a glass of chilled sangria during a day in the sun, you deserve to pamper yourself!

Now imagine the additional comfort and relaxation of a hammock – but not just any hammock. A Mayan Hammock will cocoon around you to leave you feeling weightless (and take a weight off your mind, too). Talk about an elevated experience!

Available in a combination of beautiful colours to match any setting, you can create your own personal oasis or escape anywhere, anytime. Large and resistant, you can also bask in these hammocks’ unparalleled comfort with your loved ones. No need to argue or take turns – just enjoy the moment together.

What makes a Mayan hammock so special?  Why are these hammocks renowned worldwide?

It’s all in the details…

Handwoven for Optimal Relaxation

Mayan Hammocks are the first choice for people who want not only a hammock but an authentic experience and a luxurious getaway. These handwoven hammocks are created using a technique mastered by Mayans in the Yucatan Peninsula and passed down from generations of tradition.

The diamond weave pattern is the secret to these hammock’s distinguished comfort, encase your body the moment you get in leaving you feeling snug and as light as a feather. The cotton material is breathable, resistant, and durable. Out in the sun or in your indoor oasis – this hammock is suitable for anybody!
