BANYAN TREE MAYAKOBA
Blending Asian hospitality and a celebration of Mexican culture, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers effortless vacations with a proud sense of place. The property takes prime spot in the Mayakoba enclave, a luxury resort community on the Riviera Maya´s sparkling coastline, connected by freshwater canals lined with mangroves. The Banyan Tree is oceanfront, idyllic, and the only Mayakoba resort with a private pool for each of its 163 opulent villas. Natural beauty at every turn and Zen-inspired architecture create a serene setting for relaxation and the resort´s AAA Five Diamond experience.
Six on-site world-class restaurants include the Thai flavors of waterside Saffron, evenings of Mexican specialties and tequila at La Copa, and Ixchel´s romantic culinary cruises on a pre-Hispanic gondola. Wellbeing is brought into focus at the beautiful Signature Banyan Tree Spa and Rainforest Hydrothermal Trail, as well as a state-of-the-art fitness center, and grounding yoga sessions available. Golf enthusiasts will love Mayakoba´s 18-hole El Camaleón, Latin America´s only PGA course.

The resort has eliminated 50% of single-use plastic in the past two years, exchanging all plastic water bottles for glass bottles and plastic straws for paper straws. The team oversees recycling procedures, separating waste and collaborating with different companies to ensure it goes to the correct destinations.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba provides support and training to local communities on how to start their own small businesses, with the aim of generating a circular economy. During turtle season from May to October, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba hosts an experience for guests to learn about sea turtles that are in danger of extinction and observe their release. The hotel also makes contributions to the coral reef reforestation project, Oceanus AC, and strives to carry out clean-ups in four natural areas each year with members of the local community, guests, collaborators and suppliers.
