RIVIERA MAYA, MEXICO. Located in Riviera Maya, bordered by a pristine tropical jungle, crystal clear navigable water canals, and a secluded beach, all while radiating Mayan flavor, the AAA-Five Diamond Fairmont Mayakoba is an idyllic destination for travelers seeking adventure, relaxation, or a responsibly luxurious escape. If the opportunity hasn’t come up to experience this pristine property yet, here are the top five reasons to visit Fairmont Mayakoba, in addition to an exclusive ZOOMERS offer.

  1. To learn and discover

Fairmont Mayakoba is also known as the “Venice of the Carribean”, and offers guests the opportunity to explore this natural paradise in a covered boat lancha tour through beautiful canals and verdant mangrove of the lush jungle. Guests may also meander onto the powdery white sand beaches to enjoy spectacular ocean views or take a swim. Five freshwater pools—including one exclusive for adults—are perfect for a refreshing swim under the Mayan sun!

  1. To experience five ecosystems in one place

Situated amongst five different ecosystems—mangrove, tropical forest, lagoons, water canals and coastal dunes—conservation efforts were taken into consideration from before the development of the property even began. Since opening, Fairmont Mayakoba has taken a proactive approach to remaining sustainable and conserving the environment for the enjoyment of our guests. The property has been verified by the Rainforest Alliance for their ecological responsibility amongst several other eco-accolades.

  1. To relax and reenergize

Fairmont Mayakoba’s 37,000 sq ft Willow Stream Spa is a reenergizing sanctuary offering 20 treatment rooms overlooking the treetops of the tropical forest. The carefully crafted menu includes revitalizing spa experiences inspired by the mystical Mayan culture and performed by skilled and welcoming spa experience therapists. Guests can spend hours in the serene setting of the spa’s relaxation areas and at the private rooftop pool, or socialize in one of the cozy spa lounges.

  1. To indulge in local flavor

Locally-sourced, organic and regional ingredients are incorporated into the menus at each of the resort’s four distinct restaurants, including the AAA Four Diamond Las Brisas or El Puerto restaurants, featuring delicious dishes prepared with some ingredients sourced from the chef’s own on-site garden. Cooking classes are available for guests to experience and learn how to prepare unique recipes with the guidance of the hotel’s culinary team, in addition to Tequila and Mezcal tasting seminars where guests can learn how to pair these traditional Mexican drinks with antojitos (tapas).

Do you have a specific diet? Our signature Fairmont’s Lifestyle Cuisine program offers delicious meals designed around guests’ diet-dependent requirements, including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, gluten free, vegan, raw food and macrobiotic.


  1.   It’s an activity-filled paradise

Bring your golf clubs or rent a set when you arrive and swing into warm weather at El Camaleon, an 18-hole golf course and site of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, the only official PGA TOUR event in Mexico.  If you aren’t an avid golfer or if you are simply looking to work on your handicap, take a lesson from a pro at the world-class Jim Mclean Golf School. If you prefer to spend time outdoors but not on the greens, Fairmont Mayakoba has extensive nature trails on property for biking. Non-motorized watersports are also available, not to forget Fairmont Fit, a partnership with adidas that helps you stay active with fitness apparel and equipment delivered directly to your guestroom.
