Rosewood Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen

Fringed by lush, green jungle, Rosewood Mayakoba embodies the essence of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. Combining stunning natural beauty with striking, modern design, the resort offers tranquility, serenity and indulgence. Perfectly located along a mile-long crescent of white Caribbean sand and turquoise waters, Rosewood Mayakoba is the heart of a 1,600-acre luxury resort enclave located south of Cancun and north of Playa del Carmen.

Built along clear lagoons and a vivid Caribbean Sea, the resort's 128 suites are contemporary in design, but maintain the legacy and history of the region with traditional materials, creating a sense that the hotel was built by the jungle itself- limestone, wood and water are fused in harmony with the natural surroundings. On arriving guests are transferred by luxury boats or golf cart to their own personal sanctuary. Airy, open spaces, sliding-glass doors, luxurious furnishings and wooden lattices combine to create a feeling of space and relaxation. Some villas feature outdoor showers where you can bathe under the stars, plunge pools and boat docks. From the lagoon studio suite to the Presidential Oceanfront Suite, you can choose from 8 different accommodation styles to suit your needs.

As well as simple relaxation, Rosewood offers many activities such as an an 18-hole golf course, El Camaleon, which meanders along the coast, a luxurious spa, fitness centre, snorkeling and diving excursions, water sports, all on site. They also offer external activities such as day trips to the Mayan ruins in Tulum, the ecological haven of Xcaret, horse-back riding, tequila tasting and deep sea fishing, which can all be arranged through the hotel's Butler service.
