Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, Playa del Carmen

Sixty-five air-conditioned rooms, suites and villas, all with private terraces, are hidden away in lush gardens, cooled and shaded by coconut palms on one side, open to the sun and the sea on the other. Hand painted tiles, hand-loomed bedding and rugs, original artwork plus mahogany and leather furniture, all designed and built in the resort’s own workshop, ensure that each room is unique.

The El Sol Restaurant specialises in innovative Mexican cuisine served on an open-air terrace with dramatic ocean views. The restaurant’s wine cellar boasts a large choice of the finest wine in the world. Light meals and a twice weekly lobster BBQ are available at the beach bar while in-room dining is available from 7 am to 11 pm, daily.

Maroma offers a variety of leisure activities, on and off-site. Enjoy the use of the three swimming pools, Jacuzzi and Multimedia Theatre. Or, if you want something more active, why not try tennis, golf, horse-back riding, sport fishing, kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving or swimming with dolphins – you really don’t have to be either a strong swimmer or an expert diver to enjoy the fabulous reefs surrounding the hotel.

The Mayan-themed Kinan – or ‘Source of the Sun’ – Spa offers a fully-equipped gym, yoga, meditation and Pilates plus an impressive, and innovative, range of body and facial treatments including the Temazcal – the purifying and healing ritual of the Mayan steam bath.
