Banyan Tree, Mayakoba

Situated within the private gated integrated resort development of Mayakoba, Banyan Tree enchants with the romance of travel, fused with a unique sense of tranquil and private space, and complemented by touches of our signature Asian hospitality and warmth. The secure compound is accessible only to guests of the Mayakoba development, providing additional peace of mind when traveling to the Riviera Maya.

This coast is home to the second-largest coral reef in the world, stretching from the Yucatán to Guatemala, and Mayakoba’s distinction is its carefully maintained ecosystem of dunes, mangroves and freshwater lagoons - home to myriad indigenous species of fish, birds and mammals.

Villas - Every guest has their own private swimming pool, loungers and enclosed compound in which to soak under the Caribbean sunshine. Depending on choice, villas may also offer outdoor heated jet-pools or sunken baths, massage beds, loungers and steam rooms. Each villa is tastefully decorated with handcrafted Mayan furnishings and an individual garden area surrounds the villa. Enjoy luxuries such as 42"-flat screen LCD TVs, iPod dockets, mini stereo system, complimentary wireless internet connection, hammocks for lounging and a spacious work table.

Three-bedroom Townhouse – Designed for families, friends and groups, these three story houses provide generous living space overlooking the golf course. There is the sun-drenched roof deck with a swimming pool, an al fresco lounge area with space for outdoor meals, a spacious balcony and a living area with an LCD TV. On a below-ground floor hosts all three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom.

Oriente - enjoy our sumptuous breakfast buffet each morning with a complement of fresh juices, healthy cereals and yogurts, and a variety of breads, cheese and cold cuts, Asian selections, and hot dishes to wake up to. In the evenings, treat your palate to a modern Mexican menu in a class of its own. Each dish pays homage to the highest quality Mexican ingredients while also presenting a wide array of popular dishes.

Saffron - Banyan Tree's signature restaurant serves contemporary Thai cuisine, prepared specially by our expatriate chefs from Phuket, Thailand. Traditional Thai cooking techniques are preserved in dishes such as the evergreen tom yum goong - a sour and spicy lemongrass soup with juicy prawns; as well as pad Thai - flat rice noodles stir-fried with a balance of tamarind paste, fish sauce, chili, and more.

Tamarind - Set in the tranquil surroundings of the Banyan Tree Spa, dining at Tamarind is an experience not to be missed. Fresh ingredients, exotic herbs, roots, spices and aromatic salts create the distinctive flavors of Tamarind´s hearty eclectic cuisine.

There are also several other bars and restaurants on site including La Copa, which serves fantastic, unusual cocktails, and Sands which provides casual drinks and dining by the pool all day.

El Camaleon Golf Club - one of the most talked about golf courses in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Meaning "The Chameleon", the golf course earns its name by weaving through three distinct ecosystems - jungle, dense mangrove and stunning, oceanfront stretches of sand. Designed using Greg Norman's "least disturbance" approach, the care for the environment is evident from the first hole, where golfers will navigate over an open cave, called a "cenote" in the middle of the fairway.

Children’s activities – includes an eco-tour, video games, movie time and beach activities.

Spa - As a spa innovator, Banyan Tree Spa introduces The Rainforest in Mayakoba, adding a new dimension to holistic rejuvenation. Enjoy the Rainforest's hydrothermal circuit, comprising alternating hot and cold thermal cabins, designed for guests to embark on a trail of wellness treats. Each thermal cabin is designed for one person or couple, offering the ultimate privacy. Walk through The Rainforest Trail, offering eight different hydrothermal therapy experiences including Rain Walk, Aroma Steam Chamber, Finnish Sauna, Rasul, Brine Cavern, Ice Fountain, Experience Showers and Vitality Pool.

As always the Banyan Tree meets its extremely high expectations, a fabulous resort which takes accommodation in Mexico to the next level.
