Property Highlights

keyboard_arrow_left

Luxury Beach

With a backdrop of sheer white sand and the shimmering Caribbean Sea, the hotel's Sands Beach Club offers an outstanding and luxurious experience on the pristine Mayakoba Beach. Luxuriate atop your plush sun lounger beneath the glorious sun, or head to the beachfront restaurant to enjoy the freshest seafood, authentic Mexican specialities and delicious cocktails. Twice a year, children have the opportunity to complete the awe-inspiring, educational and crucial task of releasing baby turtles into the sea, watching from the shore as they swim towards freedom. Truly once-in-a-lifetime, they will never forget the role they played in the conservation of these fascinating creatures.

Romance

Banyan Tree Mayakoba provides guests with a Romance Consultant, who specialises in crafting bespoke couple's experiences for guests staying at the resort. So whether you're planning a proposal, celebration or romantic gesture, the Romance Consultant is on-hand to guide and advise.

Do also consider a special Romantic Couple's dinner or breakfast, which takes place on board Banyan Tree´s unique, traditional dining trajinera (boat), 'Ixchel - Godess of the Moon'. Couples can enjoy a romantic sunset dinner or a sunrise breakfast.

Spa Breaks

The award-winning Banyan Tree Mayakoba Spa offers an extensive spa treatment menu, mixing traditional remedies from Eastern Asia with age-old Mayan techniques. Treatments restore physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing while uplifting and awakening the soul. The Rainforest treatments, unique to Banyan Tree, are innovative holistic remedies combining a hydrothermal circuit entwined with hot and cold thermal cabins, where guests can embark on the Rainforest Trail, weaving through eight different hydrothermal therapy stations, from steam chambers to ice fountains. Truly unique and blissful.

Golf

Golfers will marvel at the terrain of the 18-hole El Camaleon golf course designed by the Australian professional golfer, Greg Norman and the challenge its terrain presents (the par 3s earning the greatest praise). El Camaleon has three, very different, eco-systems and players are led through jungle and mangroves, then faced with open-cave obstacles and the water's edge and sandy beach, which are only a swing away. Misjudge the proximity of your surroundings and you'll lose your golf balls to the depths of a canal or the Caribbean Sea!

Hotel Experiences

Make your Mexican experience as enriching as it is enjoyable by partaking in one of Banyan Tree's exceptional culinary classes, with expert guidance from the hotel's celebrated chefs. With specialities in both local Mexican and Thai cuisine, you can enjoy a tour through each region's diverse culinary traditions on one of many courses - including 'Mexican Cooking', 'Mexican Pastries' and 'An Introduction to Thai Spices'. Learn the artful techniques of the locals and experts as you unleash the exotic and intricate flavours of each area's multi-layered, classic dishes.

Culture & History

Banyan Tree Mayakoba is perfectly placed for exploration of a number of fascinating and captivating ancient sites. Head south to discover the picturesque town, Tulum, boasting an iconic ruin on its lush cliff edge. One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza is a must-see complex of Mayan ruins, housing the striking El Castillo pyramid. Set amongst lush jungle, be amazed as you cycle or walk around the ancient and mysterious Mayan city, Coba, whilst looking out for Howler Monkeys, butterflies and tropical birds.

Scuba Diving

The Mayakoba region offers superb diving opportunities, in particular around the area of Cozumel, with its world-famous cenotes (underwater caves), year-round warm waters and diving visibility of up to two-hundred metres. Banyan Tree Mayakoba does not have on-site diving facilities, but with such unmissable treats to be found only a little way away, it is well worth leaving the resort for. Allow staff to organise an unforgettable diving trip to Cozumel and you won't be disappointed.
