Riviera Maya, Mexico (May, 2011) – Banyan Tree Mayakoba, the most luxurious and exclusive resort on the Riviera Maya, celebrated its recent win of the 2011 Spa Country Winner - Best Luxury Resort Spa award in Mexico conferred by The World Luxury Hotel Awards Spa Awards.

Setting benchmarks in quality, innovation and service for spas around the globe, the World Luxury Hotel Awards Spa Awards highlight unsurpassed service excellence and set the spotlight on spas that represent the finest standards in the highly competitive spa industry. The total of 8 spa categories included Luxury Destination Spa, Luxury Medical/Wellness Spa, Luxury Resort Spa, Luxury Day Spa, Luxury Spa Group, Luxury Cruise Ship Spa, Luxury Hotel Spa, Luxury Mineral Spring Spa, Luxury Safari Spa and Luxury Emerging Spa. With the bar raised high, the independent judging process was based on an official voting by spa guests followed by stringent feedback and votes from a global panel of select spa industry professionals.

Redefining the Mexican hospitality market, Banyan Tree has introduced a heightened level of luxurious guest experience and services. Guests of Banyan Tree Mayakoba can select from 107 all-pool villas discreetly built into the carefully conserved landscape, which preserves four ecosystems in balance – the mangroves, dunes, low forests, and coral reefs. Banyan Tree Mayakoba blends the romance of travel with a unique sense of place and signature touches of Asian hospitality, making it one of the most exclusive resorts on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. The earth-toned guest rooms are designed with the finest natural materials, and filled with unique Mayan-inspired furnishings infused with Asian touches. All villas are freestanding units on land or over water, tucked amidst undulating lagoons, canals and lush mangroves, to create an intimate oasis.

Like the tropical and sacred tree that inspired its name, world-renowned Banyan Tree Spa offers guests a Sanctuary for the Senses – a haven for physical, mental and spiritual renewal. Its spa philosophy focuses on a non-clinical and holistic ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach that celebrates the intuitive art of touch and the use of natural herbs and spices.

Inspired by time-honoured Asian healing therapies and beauty remedies, Banyan Tree Spa Mayakoba pampers guests with massages and body treatments performed by professional therapists trained at the Banyan Tree Spa Academy in Phuket, Thailand. The Rainforest presents a unique hydrothermal experience combining the best of European spa and hydrothermal therapy with the essence of Asian wellness philosophy in a romantic haven of serenity and comfort.

The culinary team at Banyan Tree Mayakoba, which has earned an excellent reputation, offers the best dining options in the region including Saffron, the resort’s signature Thai restaurant; Tamarind restaurant; Oriente restaurant which offers Mexican cuisine; and Ixchel, a "Destination Dining Experience" that consists of a private dinner aboard a vessel decorated with local handicrafts.
