Banyan Tree Mayakoba

Nestled in the heart of the Riviera Maya, just 25 minutes from the bustling Playa del Carmen, Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers an unparalleled experience of luxury and immersion in the natural beauty of its surroundings. The resort is tucked away in Mayakoba, a stunning resort community that boasts lush mangroves, underground waterways, and ancient indigenous traditions. With over 100 species of birds, turtles, and even crocodiles, the abundant wildlife of Mayakoba adds to the allure of this tropical paradise.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba features private villas seamlessly integrated into the landscape, each with its own pool. Guests can also enjoy the award-winning golf course and the striking spa for ultimate relaxation.

Sands Beach Club offers a waterfront pool, fresh seafood lunch, cocktails from the swim-up bar, beach loungers, and complimentary snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking equipment.

The resort's diverse dining options cater to all tastes, from authentic Thai dishes to contemporary Mexican fare. Unique experiences such as private meals on a boat or a one-of-a-kind Mayan dinner in the jungle make for unforgettable culinary adventures.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a dramatic open-air lobby overlooking Mayakoba's famous canals. The Mayan-influenced architecture beautifully blends indoor and outdoor spaces, with rustic woods and muted earth tones complementing the vibrant green of the waterways and native flora.

The Banyan Tree Spa offers a unique relaxation experience in private over-the-water therapy villas, with treatments inspired by Asian traditions and administered by expert therapists from Banyan Tree Academies in Thailand and Indonesia.

Each spacious accommodation at Banyan Tree Mayakoba features a private pool and many have an outdoor bath. Dining is a highlight, with fantastic meals in stunning settings such as flavorful Thai cuisine at Saffron or traditional Mayan food in the jungle.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba is one of four resorts in the 640-acre Mayakoba complex along the Caribbean coast. A complimentary shuttle and ferry service connects guests to other properties within the complex. Golf enthusiasts will appreciate El Camaleón Mayakoba Golf Club, designed by Greg Norman and home to the only PGA Tour event in Mexico, The Mayakoba Golf Classic.

The resort's immense pool villas, each over 2,750 square feet, are discreetly built into the landscape along garden paths accessible via golf cart. Each villa features a private full-sized pool, indoor and outdoor living areas, a garden, and a bathroom with a deep soaking tub and rain shower. More opulent accommodations, such as the 5,511-square-foot Beachfront Three Bedroom Pool Villa, offer stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, earthenware sinks, a courtyard, a heated swimming pool, and a jet pool.

In-villa barbecue services are also available, with a chef preparing a delicious meal of prime cuts and seafood right in your villa. All accommodations include an alfresco bath for a romantic soak under the stars, with options for candlelit baths and amenities like wine and rose-petal-strewn floors.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers a variety of dining experiences, from Mexican fare at Oriente to northern Italian cuisine at Cello, where chefs prepare pasta from scratch before your eyes. Saffron, a staple of most Banyan Tree properties, serves authentic Thai cuisine on a picturesque wooden deck surrounded by mangroves.

For a truly unique experience, sign up for Haab, an exclusive dinner featuring traditional Mayan dishes, rituals, stories, and performances among the trees. The Ixchel experience, named after the Mayan moon goddess, offers a romantic dining outing aboard a private boat that cruises through canals and mangroves.

With amenities such as babysitting services, a bar, golf, a gym, meeting rooms, an outdoor pool, restaurants, a spa, and tennis, Banyan Tree Mayakoba is the perfect destination for an unforgettable luxury getaway.
