Let the sway of water, sand and sky charm your soul as your palate experiences gastronomical delights

Banyan Tree’s signature restaurant, Saffron, serves contemporary Thai cuisine prepared by Thai chefs, brought to Mayakoba to share their authentic dishes and techniques with our guests. An intimate restaurant that caters perfectly to special occasions, Saffron is a one-of-a-kind experience. Sitting on our wooden deck, overlooking the tropical mangroves, while sampling the finest Thai delicacies, is truly unforgettable. Chef Renu Homsombat is a passionate and driven culinary professional with 19 years of experience in fine Thai cuisine. Highly-motivated and always looking for innovative ways to refine her culinary creations, Chef Renu ensures that authenticity and the true essence of Thai cuisine are preserved in all of Saffron’s dishes. It’s no wonder we received the TripAdvisor 2014 Certificate of Excellence. Delight your taste buds with traditional Tom Yum Goong, a spicy and sour lemongrass soup with straw mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, coriander and shrimp or select the Grilled Beef Salad with crisp vegetables, spring onions, coriander and a savory fish sauce. At Saffron, every meal is a gastronomical experience for your memoirs!
