Architecture | Banyan Tree Mayakoba


Banyan Tree’s architecture and design highlights the “romance of travel” and a strong “sense of place” of each location where a resort is located. It promotes the uniqueness and specificity of the indigenous cultures and incorporates design elements of the local tradition. At the same time, Banyan Tree strives to be environmentally sensitive, with its emphasis on conserving the existing natural environment where we operate.

Banyan Tree’s design succeeds in creating a beautiful and functional resort while preserving the destination’s fragile yet diverse ecological system. In Mayakoba, Banyan Tree sought to conserve the natural landscape of low jungles, dunes, mangroves and reefs, while developing a modern design which uses indigenous materials when possible.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba introduced an All-Pool villa resort concept infused with Asian hospitality and architecture. All 107 villas, Banyan Tree Spa, signature restaurants and Gallery will provide guests a sanctuary for the senses. All villas are freestanding units on land or above water. Banyan Tree has also used the existing flora and fauna to function as a natural shield between neighbouring villas. The Banyan Tree Spa features intimate outdoor spa pavilions located in the lagoon, where guests can enjoy Asian-inspired spa treatments.
