Take a deep breath: you are finally in Mexico! And the Rosewood Mayakoba is ready to make your experience at the Playa del Carmen an unforgettable one. Not only do you get to indulge in a 1,600-acre resort on the Caribbean with all the gorgeous landscapes and fruity drinks your heart desires, but you’ve picked a location certified by the Rainforest Alliance. This Mayan-inspired destination is the best of both worlds, allowing you to indulge in your dream getaway as well as satisfying your inner-explorer with all that the Riviera Maya has to offer.
Known for the tranquility of its surroundings, the Rosewood Mayakoba suites accommodates you with rooftop sundecks, plunge pools, expansive terraces, and even boat docks. These private suites boasts the height of luxury, with your pick on the level of seclusion you desire and a large choice of different services.
The most expansive suite available is the Casa Laguna, with three bedrooms, a private pool, a private dock, five staff members, and bicycles for each guest being just some of the services offered.
The Rosewood Mayakoba also offers many activities on-site, such as kayaking, beach volleyball, beach soccer, and snorkeling. Horseback riding on the beach is wildly popular (especially for a romantic outing) and there are special services for the resort’s youngest guests, including fun activities during the day and evenings depending on the season.
Fine dining in the Riviera Maya is unlike anywhere else; the options provided by the Rosewood Mayakoba allow you to choose between the gorgeous views accompanied by Mayan specialties at Punta Bonita, contemporary Italian at Casa Del Lago, and the delights of Agave Azul Sushi & Tequila Bar. Gastronomy is at the heart of any exotic voyage, so the Rosewood Mayakoba invites its guests to different culinary adventures: Epicurean Encounters with a Mayan Bees Farm Tour encourages sustainable practices by preserving their bee cultures, an ancient tradition. Tequila tastings and local food showcases are available, all to ensure a truly robust Mexican experience.
The Rosewood relaxation facilities offer such pleasing amenities that the real world wonder is that anyone leaves the spa at all. A heated pool, saunas and steam rooms, Jacuzzi, a refreshing plunge pool, a fully equipped gym and yoga and meditation classes guarantee that you will leave with a body feeling rejuvenated. Sense, A Rosewood Spa®, is actually secluded away from the rest of the resort on an island. Using treatments inspired by Mayan techniques, a truly sumptuous session is sure to leave all guests feeling the therapeutic benefits that will linger long after they have left.
Surrounded by lush jungle, guests are inspired by the best of the tropics while being close to the second largest coral reef in the world. The Playa del Carmen village is a mere half hour away. However, the rich Mayan history of Mexico is the real draw. The archaeological Mayan Ruins of Tulum tower towards the rising sun on a cliff, offering a phenomenal view. Visitors can explore Sian Ka’an, a coveted and protected site, swim in beautiful underground caves with their glorious formations, and snorkel in the clear waters. Xcaret Eco Theme Park, only 15 minutes away, offers tours of the barrier reef and evening performances depicting the rituals of the past.
At the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, Chichen Itza’s pyramid stands tall as the 1,500-year-old star of Mayan legends. View this old-world giant on foot for a close-up look, or see it from a bird’s eye by aircraft. Visitors are also tempted by the natural wonder of Cenote Ikil, a sinkhole, or the charming town of Valladolid. Lastly, one shouldn’t miss Coba, a Mayan ceremonial center in the rain forest with temples lurking beneath the cover of green where you can uncover stories surrounding the belief that centuries ago, the world was due to meet its end.
For those looking to explore modern wonders as well, Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen offers plenty of shopping and an excellent atmosphere for an evening promenade. If you venture to Cancun, La Isla Shopping Village shelters over 150 shops underneath its canopy. For luxury boutiques and high-end shopping, consider Kukulcan Plaza & Luxury Avenue. A more commercial experience can be found at Market 28, an enourmous flea market in Cancun where local treasures, art, and handmade crafts are sold by Mexican vendors. Anyone who is serious about art simply cannot miss out on the renowned Casa de Cultura.
Naturally, this inspiring environment is prime for events of any occasion, be it for business, a themed party, or a wedding. The Rosewood Mayakoba lagoon is the epitome of a dream wedding location, and the resort is honored to make accommodations for any ceremony. Meetings can be organized both indoors and outdoors for up to 100 people or up to 140 guests for events. Themed parties such as Mayan, Caribbean, or White can be requested for a magical evening on the Mexican Riviera.
The Rosewood Mayakoba remains the ideal spot in this vibrant area. Your experience is sure to be enriched with rooms and facilities that are above and beyond, a dedicated staff, and the beach all within arm’s reach of a cultural hotspot.
