Banyan Tree Mayakoba on the Riviera Maya, Mexico

Located in the Latino side of North America, on the breathtaking Riviera Maya, Mexico, Banyan Tree Mayakoba is the ultimate destination for tourists worldwide. Just a few steps away from Playa del Carmen and opposing the island of Cozumel on the Caribbean Coast of Mexico, it is easily reachable, south from the International Airport in Cancun, via a 40 minute drive.

In a location that simply has nothing in common with busy city life, Banyan Tree Mayakoba is where guests will find true peace and tranquility. Book yourself a Sunset Lagoon Villa among the superb mangroves, aside serpentine waterways, and get a glimpse of what genuine beauty means.

The resort comprises a total of 107 open-floor villas which designed in partly Eastern and partly Western styles, with dark wood trims atop ivory walls. In fact, the name “Mayakoba” stands for “city on water”, providing a short depiction of this magnificent corner of privacy. Living up to its name, every villa of this resort has been fitted with private swimming pool, while trained developers at the resort are actively offering protection to the Great Maya Reef and to the lush vegetation which surrounds the place.

In terms of “what to do”, there are plenty of options. If golf is your specialty, the local El Camaléon golf course, designed by the famous Greg Norman, is anxiously willing to stand at your feet. Breathtaking views over the Caribbean can be enjoyed from the roof of La Copa, while the reef serves as a great snorkeling spot.

In terms of relaxation, combining Eastern, Western techniques with Asian healing arts and European hydrotherapy, the spa follows the same theme which defines the resort, just like the many bars and restaurants here, of which we name the Oriente, which focuses on modern Mexican tastes. Nightly rates at Banyan Tree Mayakoba start at $630 (€496).
