Riviera Maya, Mexico, May 08, 2013
World-Class Destination Resort Offers Special Summer Activities and, Peace of Mind
The Riviera Maya continues to rank in the Top 10 most popular International summer destinations for American travelers, according the annual ASTA’s 2013 Hot Spots for Summer survey, and so Fairmont Mayakoba is preparing to entice travelers by launching the “100 Days of Summer” program to include entertaining activities for guests of all ages.
As temperature soars, the family friendly resort, situated along Mexico’s stunning Caribbean coast, will transform into an outdoor “pop-up” summer playground with golf, sea kayaking, spa boot camps, beer tastings and much more. Starting in celebration of Memorial Day on May 24th, during each of the “100 Days of Summer” a different activity will “pop-up” within the resort.
“Summer is all about having fun and reconnecting with loved ones. At Fairmont Mayakoba we are always looking for new ways to engage with our guests and offer unique experience with a local flavor” mentions Ian Robinson, Vice-president and General Manager of Fairmont Mayakoba. “The 100 Days of Summer program allow us to offer thrill and excitement by highlighting a popular trend our guests enjoy and continuing to focus on our strength as a destination for travelers looking to relax and entertain with family and friends” added Robinson.
While enjoying these activities on property, guests are encouraged to join the fun by following the trend of the day, via the resort’s social media accounts and posting their photos on Instagram using the hashtag #FairmontSummer.
Some activities include:
Parent’s Night Out
Available every Friday, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. little guests ages 4 to 12, will have a night of fun of their own, while Mom and Dad ignite the spark with a romantic dinner or a spa treatment. The supervised evening for children includes dinner and refreshments.
At night, the Mayan jungle turns into a magical wonderland with mystical sounds as insects, amphibious animals and mammals use their sounds to communicate and protect their territory or attract their mates. With the use of lanterns, families will walk through the resort’s pathways looking for the wildlife that live within Mayakoba.
Stargazing Camping Adventure
Camping tents will “pop-up” at the Kids Camp, for kids ages 4 – 12, to enjoy safari night that includes stargazing with the use of an iPad application. At the end of the evening, children will receive Milky-Way chocolates as a token of their visit.
Guests will experience Southern Mexico’s natural habitat within the resort. With over 240 animals species living in Mayakoba, the hotel’s Ecology Manager will guide guests on a walking tour to spot wild birds going through their daily routines.
Eat like a local
When it comes to capturing the distinctive flavors of regional Mexican cuisine, the resort’s ocean front restaurant, Las Brisas, treats guests to a fusion of aromas, textures and flavors with accents of authentic Latin American gastronomy. Available only during the summer, a tasting menu is offered including items such as “cochinita” spring rolls and grilled lobster with Xtabentun.
"Shaken, not stirred"
In the chic James Bond style, the Lobby Lounge will set up a pop-up martini bar every Thursday evening. Starting at 4 p.m. guests will enjoy classics such as the Cosmopolitan, Dirty Martini, Appletini and a new mix of traditional ingredients such as Chaya, Hibiscus and Xtabentun to create some seasonal classics of our own.
With two lighted tennis courts and one paddle tennis court, Social Tennis is the perfect opportunity for guests who would like to practice their tennis skills to connect with other players.
