A master planned luxury resort community within 240 acres of tropical forest intersected by crystal clear waterways and surrounded by a pristine Caribbean shoreline, the Mayakoba resort community is located 40 miles south of Cancun near the town of Playa del Carmen, in Mexico’s fabled Riviera Maya.
Known as the Venice of the Caribbean, at Fairmont Mayakoba you will live a unique resort experience, as the majority of our accommodations are located in Casita rooms or suites featuring private entrances, spa style bathrooms, and furnished balconies or terraces with views to the tropical forest, golf course, mangrove, navigable water canals, lagoons or the azure Caribbean sea.
ABOUT THE DESTINATION
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.
ACTIVITIES AT THE RESORT
Guests at Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya resort can take advantage of several recreational activities on property including exploring nature trails on foot or bikes, scenic boat tours on lanchas through crystal clear canals, sunbathing on the soft white-sand beach or at one of the property’s five fresh water pools, non-motorized watersports (kayaks and catamarans), outdoor tennis and paddle courts and more! Children and teens have a space just for them at the Discovery Club or at the Teens Room by Sony PlayStation®.
Those who want to hit the greens will find fun and challenge at the renowned El Camaleón golf course (host to the only official PGA TOUR event in Mexico), while those who want to improve their swing can book lessons at the Jim McLean Golf School. For some well deserved “me time” the many signature spa experiences at Willow Stream will pamper and relax.
SAVOUR THE SPICE OF LIFE
From sunrise to sunset, guests have plenty of time to savor the fare at Fairmont Mayakoba's award-winning restaurants. Wake up to an energizing breakfast, unwind with a poolside lunch, and relax with a seaside cocktail while you watch the sun set over the Caribbean.
