New York, United States of America- As the first Banyan Tree property in the Americas, Banyan Tree Mayakoba has solidified its place along Mexico’s exquisite Riviera Maya coast as a premier destination for travelers seeking respite and a rejuvenating getaway. Celebrating its first anniversary this March, the resort reflects on a year of outstanding performance, awards and all-around success.

Recognized as an exceptional destination by guests and industry professionals, Banyan Tree Mayakoba has already been showered with multiple awards and accolades during its first year. Among TripAdvisor’s 2010 Travelers Choice’ Awards, the resort received five nods; including the No. 1 ranking in the category Top 10 Hotels for Romance in the Caribbean & Mexico. Banyan Tree Mayakoba also made its mark on several top U.S. travel publications, including a spot on Travel + Leisure’s venerable “It List,” highlighting the 45 best new hotels for 2009. Finally, the resort was honored with two Annual Boutique Design Awards for Best Lobby and Best Spa.

From March 1 – 15, guests who book a reservation online can take advantage of the resort’s “Karma” promotion. For every booking of two nights or more, guests receive resort credit equal to one night’s stay, up to US$1,860.  Complimentary credits can be used to offset charges for spa treatments, dining, and purchases at retail galleries. The limited-time “Karma” promotion applies only to online bookings arranged March 1-15, 2010 at banyantree.com for stays from April 1-June 30, 2010. 

As a leader in Asian hospitality and holistic wellness, Banyan Tree designed the Mayakoba property with innovative features to offer new experiences to discerning travelers. The property boasts five different villa types to cater to various market segments ranging from honeymooners and couples, to larger families and intimate groups of friends. In addition to the assortment of rejuvenating massages and beauty treatments inspired by traditional Asian remedies, the world-renowned Banyan Tree Spa also brought The Rainforest experience to Mayakoba, which offers spa patrons a choice of eight hydrotherapy treatments. Juxtaposed with Mayakoba’s tropical mangroves, lush lagoons and natural surroundings, the resort is truly a “Sanctuary for the Senses”.

Specially catering to couples seeking additional sparks of passion during their stay, Banyan Tree Mayakoba’s dedicated Romance Director is ready to help enhance each romantic getaway to create truly indelible memories for lovebirds.  The resort’s chefs are also available to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience with a meat or seafood barbeque freshly grilled by the pools of individual villas.

Despite the difficulties for tourism in Mexico during 2009, Banyan Tree Mayakoba was able to rise above the external circumstances and provide world-class amenities and unparalleled services to guests. The property’s attention to detail has set it apart as a luxurious retreat and a place where pampering is never overlooked.
