Surrounded by the emerald embrace of the jungle and caressed by warm Caribbean breezes, Rosewood Mayakoba is a resort of rare luxury, imbued with the unique spirit of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. A journey to this serene world, immersed in the green perfume of the jungle, captivates the soul with unimaginable natural beauty and pure, simple refinement. Situated along a mile-long arc of white sand on the Riviera Maya, Rosewood Mayakobá is the heart of a 1,600-acre luxury resort enclave located 30 minutes south of Cancún and north of the charming seaside village of Playa del Carmen. Upon arrival, guests are transported by luxury boats or golf cart to their own personal sanctuary.
Sense, the Rosewood Spa, sits on it’s own island surrounded by nature. Guests can use the heated pool, fully equipped gym, juice bar, saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzi, cold plunge pool and relaxation areas as well as yoga and meditation classes before or after treatments. Therapies involve a combination of indigenous Mexican, European and Asian beauty methods, creating sumptuous wraps, scrubs, massages, pedicures, manicures, facials and relaxation techniques.
Built along a network of lagoons and the Caribbean Sea, the resort's 128 suites are strikingly modern in design yet crafted from such indigenous materials as to appear born of the jungle. Limestone, wood and water are fused in harmony with the natural surroundings. With floor-to-ceiling windows which slide open to reveal a wooden walkway to the lagoon, beach or garden, stylish modern furniture and a private plunge pool, every suite is homely, design-led and very comfortable.
Swim in the infinity edge and spa pools, cool off in the sea and relax on the white sand beach. Golfers will love a round on the 18 hole Greg Norman course, El Camaleon which meanders along the coast, and water lovers can enjoy complimentary water sports on the beach. Cenotes and the world’s second largest coral reef provide fabulous snorkelling and diving, and deep sea fishing excursions run from the coast most days. On land, excursions to the Mayan ruins of Tulum, tequila tasting and yoga lessons are popular. Kids will love the excellent kids club which runs from 9am – 5pm for children ages between 3 and 12.
The hotel’s two elegant restaurants, Casa del Lago and Punta Bonita, serve Mexican and international cuisine with great views for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Agave Azul bar offers tequila tasting each evening accompanied by local style appetizers, beers and cocktails.
