Rosewood Mayakoba

Opened in 2007, this stylish resort encompasses crystal-clear lagoons, a mile of white-sand beach, and several small islands surrounded by a lush mangrove jungle. Designed with indigenous materials, modern suites blend with the surrounding environment while providing a luxurious personal sanctuary for discerning leisure travelers. Located over water, in the mangrove jungle around the lagoons, or beachside, 128 private suites feature plunge pools, terraces or rooftop sun decks.

The resort’s 17,000-square-foot-spa resides on its own island complete with therapeutic plunge pools, steam grottos, saunas, a relaxation deck, and a fitness center. Guests can relax at one of three pools including a beachfront infinity pool or play a round of golf at the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón championship golf course within the Mayakoba resort enclave. Resort amenities include butler service and concierge service.
