As you sweep past the gates of the Fairmont Mayakoba Riviera Maya, it is evident from the lush setting and splendid character that this not just another resort; rather, you enter into a world that seamlessly weaves together exceptional luxury and nature’s abundant gifts. Set down under the mangrove canopy, scarcely disturbing a single branch, Fairmont Mayakoba gives the impression that it grew out of the very forest it calls home, with guest rooms that lie nestled in a tropical forest surrounded by the calm, ever-present waters of lush lagoons. Set within 240 acres of tropical forest, intersected by crystal clear waterways and surrounded by a pristine Caribbean shoreline, this luxurious AAA 5-Diamond resort is the ultimate escape for an array of exhilarating and refreshing activities, succulent dining, impeccable service, and an abundance of incredible natural beauty.
Tucked in and around a ribbon of crystal clear waterways, Fairmont Mayakoba Riviera Maya is literally in the center of a luxurious gated community near the town of Playa del Carmen. Opened in 2006, the distinctive nature of this Fairmont resort is evident from the moment you arrive. To maintain the authenticity and delicate ecology, vehicles are parked at the entrance of the property and all other transport throughout the Fairmont Mayakoba is accomplished via covered boats called lanchas, electric golf carts, bicycles or on foot. Sheltered under the forest canopy, the 401-room property’s distinguishing features include a Willow Stream spa with treetop treatment areas, a secluded beach alongside one of the world’s largest reefs, nature trails and award-winning restaurants and lounges.
Riviera Maya and Cancun offer a wide range of intriguing and enjoyable activities. Whether you prefer to unwind and relax on the expansive, verdant resort grounds, or venture off the property to experience a new adventure, or encounter ancient Mayan discoveries, there is so much to do, see, learn and savor. In order to ensure a fulfilling and unforgettable experience, it’s recommended that you plan well ahead of time to fully immerse yourself into all the incredible options this mystical land has to offer. Take advantage of several activities, such as exploring nature trails on foot or bikes, scenic boat tours on crystal clear canals, non-motorized watersports, El Pueblito Mayakoba, Willow Stream Spa and El Camaleon Golf Club. Spend summer days participating in watersports and cooking classes, and stargazing at night! The Mayakoba resort community is a vibrant place featuring a number of exclusive events throughout the year, and dozens of activities.
A 20,000 square foot Willow Stream spa features 20 treatment rooms including a unique couple’s suite in the treetops, plus two mineral pools and steam rooms. A thoughtfully crafted menu of services includes exclusive Willow Stream treatments, some of which incorporate indigenous ingredients and ancient native traditions, as well as Mayan-inspired signature experiences.
If you choose to venture off the property, the Riviera Maya boasts the world’s second largest coral reef, which is easily reached from Cozumel, a short trip from the resort. The warm, gentle Caribbean currents ensure the area is a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkeling. Exploration of the mystical underwater cenotes (luminous caverns that were once a source of fresh water for the Mayans who inhabited the area), a visit to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itzá (one of the new Seven Wonders of The World), or an excursion to Sian Ka’an (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) will add a truly unique element to your stay. Nearby, Playa del Carmen provides an exuberant nightlife, in addition to sophisticated boutiques and stores offering traditional Mexican handicrafts.
