ABOUT BANYAN TREE MAYAKOBA
The jewel of the Riviera Maya
A sanctuary for the senses, Banyan Tree Mayakoba welcomes you to the essential Banyan Tree experience in a resort that provides a joyful habitat for the spirit. It is a place where ancient civilizations embrace each other and where the passionate nature of Mexico is soothed by the gentle touch of the Far East.
In the ancient Maya language, Mayakoba means village over water. Banyan Tree Mayakoba is true to this definition, surrounded by lagoons, mangroves and bordered by the sea. A resort for the renewal of both mind and body, it gathers those who come under the leafy shelter of the Banyan, a tree native to the Orient and thought to be magical in its power to nurture.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a site of almost mythical beauty. It flawlessly blends elegance and nature, in exquisite harmony, taking the Caribbean lifestyle to an unprecedented new height. A breathtaking getaway for relaxation, rejuvenation, romance and world-class dining, it is also the region’s most sustainable five-star resort. With its revitalized culinary concepts, Thai-inspired therapies at the Banyan Tree Spa, 14 event-venues and the Greg Norman signature 18-hole El Camaleón golf course, home to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Classic, the resort raises the bar for leisure options and event planning.
Perfect for private getaways, family trips and group events, Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers 121 villas, ranging from secluded Garden Villas to Beachfront Villas. All include outdoor areas with pools and terraces. Inspired by the interior courtyards of houses in the Far East, each villa is discreetly built to blend with the landscape, integrating interiors to their surroundings.
East meets West in every subtle detail, from the fragrance of flowers surrounding your villa, to the softness of a kimono, fine linens and essential oils on your skin. Here, even world-weary guests discover the eloquence of tranquility.
Enjoy sundowners with your soulmate or a family dinner served on your private terrace…the villas enhance every moment of your stay. Enveloped by the hauntingly beautiful scenery and bordering a generous beach, the Riviera Maya luxury resort is an iconic setting for romance and relaxation.
As the first Banyan Tree property in the Americas, Banyan Tree Mayakoba sets the benchmark for vacationing in the Riviera Maya. Located just 40 minutes South of Cancun and 10 minutes North of lively Playa del Carmen, the resort spa facilities are rated as Travel + Leisure’s Number One Spa in Mexico, as well as featured in Condé Nast Traveler’s prestigious Gold List.
