Hotel Overview

The Riviera Maya is located in Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula in the State of Quintana Roo and nests alongside the Caribbean Sea. Situated in the heart of the Riviera Maya, the resort is approximately 42 miles or 70 km south of Cancun.

The Fairmont Mayakoba resort has 401 elegant rooms scattered among the main building and villas spread through the indigenous jungle, and 34 beach and lagoon casitas - each one offering guests an extraordinary and memorable view. Guests may rest their the eyes upon the mesmerizing ocean or the sweet sight of mangroves and jungle.

Between sunrise over the Caribbean and a night sky filled with the same brilliant stars that inspired the Mayans, you have plenty of time to savor the fare at one of four exceptional restaurants. Wake up to an energizing breakfast and unwind with a poolside lunch; regroup with cocktails at sunset and wind up with some very sweet endings.

In such an idyllic place, personal gatherings and events take on an unforgettable magic. Whether in the lavish Ballroom - opening to a water and sun filled courtyard - or at unique well-appointed breakout rooms, Fairmont Mayakoba promises an occasion to surpass all expectations.

Las Brisas Restaurant/Lounge Bar

    At the Fairmont Mayakoba's signature beachfront restaurant, the air has a deliciously salty tang, and the breeze tastes indefinably turquoise blue. Las Brisas is designed in sensual harmony with nature and is one of the most desired dining experiences in the Mayan Riviera.

El Puerto Restaurant

    Inspired on a former port area, spectacular views over the lagoon and a cozy atmosphere, El Puerto Restaurant becomes a place for fresh Caribbean lobster, shellfish platters, clams, oysters, white shrimps and daily fisher market delicacies prepared with recipes that will make your dining experience at El Puerto an occasion to remember.

La Laguna Grill & Bar

    Surrounded by crystal clear waters from the Mayakoba lagoons, La Laguna Grill & Bar is located on a Caribbean Island itself at the main pool area. This relaxed yet enchanting location serves outstanding breakfast, lunch and dinner including light and healthy alternatives and outstanding cuisine with a hint Mexican inspired cuisine.

Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Mayakoba

    Located in the heart of a tropical jungle on the area's natural lagoons, lies an amazing back drop for a mystical spa journey reminiscent of the textures, colors and scents of the ancient Mayan culture.

    There are places to rest and reflect close to the elements the Mayans used hundreds of years ago to erect their monuments and temples. They used Conchera, a fossil stone, Sascab as their mortar, natural green marble from Guatemala and the magnificent wood of the Zapote tree. You'll find the same elements incorporated throughout the spa.

    The forest provides private canopies for the treatment rooms, overlooking the treetops of the mangrove forest. The romantic spa suite is a breathtaking opportunity to spend time with your loved one with side-by-side treatments. The men's and ladies' locker areas feature beautiful Mexican gardens with outdoor Swiss showers and whirlpools. On the rooftop, ease your muscles with the healing waters of the signature vitality pool, or find energy in the sea-mineral soaking pool.

    You'll find unique treatments and experiences based on local tradition and flora, ranging from Willow Stream signature experiences to uniquely Mayan traditions featuring local herbs, essential oils, and extracts. One of the most popular is the Cha Chac Rain Ritual, based on the Mayan rain ritual. There is also the amazing Yucatan Healing Retreat, which you get to share with a special friend. For chocolate lovers, discover Cacao with The Food of the Gods Body Nourisher. Whichever you choose, the healing touches of the Willow Stream experience providers will guide you to renewing your energy.

Winding under a forest canopy and through the tropical landscape, El Camaleón borders the resort. Here, golf enthusiasts can experience fairways lined with sand dunes and mangroves; challenge themselves with unique hazards such as cenotes (subterranean caves) and crystal clear lagoons, then take in the alluring vistas from greens perched on the edge of the Caribbean Sea. This place is much more than just a golf experience. With its unique hazards and captivating greens, El Camaleón has been carefully planned to capture the essence of a pristine and natural landscape.
