Since its grand opening in 2008, Rosewood Mayakoba has beckoned guests in search of the ultimate escape. Inspired by Mayan traditions, this 1600-acre resort enclave sits along a mile‐long arc of white Caribbean sand, nestled just north of the picturesque waterfront town of Playa del Carmen. Designed to blend harmony with natural landscapes, Rosewood Mayakoba is an oasis of luxury offering 130 suites with private plunge pools, rooftop sundecks, garden showers, individual docks and the finest modern design and details. For further peace of mind, the resort is built to abide by the highest of eco-standards, offering indulgence with awareness, and has received the Rainforest Alliance Certification.
Accommodations are nestled amid lush foliage, with a private veranda and plunge pool. Living spaces have an artisanal feel; handcrafted from indigenous materials such as limestone, wood and water, villas and suites showcase a pared-down minimalism. The philosophy behind the design is to be in harmony with the natural surroundings, therefore the contemporary decor is earth-toned, and there are ample open spaces, enhancing the seamless indoor-to-outdoor feel.
Sense Spa is a retreat-within-a-retreat, situated on its own idyllic island. Inducing a profound sense of calm and clarity, the spa melds water and earth to echo the soul of Mexico's charmed Riviera Maya. Inspired by ancient culture, Sense Spa exemplifies how Mayans harnessed natural elements to achieve full equilibrium across the full spectrum of health; physically, mentally and spiritually. Therapeutic treatments incorporate indigenous ingredients such as aloe and agave cactus from local plants. Focusing on sensory engagement, the spa has a temazcal, a traditional Mayan sweat lodge aiming to cleanse and purify mind, body and spirit.
With Mayan influences in the hotel itself, you won't be surprised that Chichén Itzá, an ancient Mayan site with large intricate and historical buildings, is not too far from Cancun and is a tourist destination that draws crowds from around the world.
