December 31st is always that time of the year where we are all getting ready to leave the old and get in with the new. A time where we see all of our accomplishments in a blink of an eye and start thinking of what is yet to come. And indeed, life is giving us another opportunity to start over and make things better.
But before we do, we would also like to thank you all for being part of our Fairmont Mayakoba family in 2021. This year has been challenging for everyone; meanwhile, COVID-19 is still part of our lives, and we must continue to take care of our health and those around us.
We are always trying to make our happy little piece of paradise a place where we can all call home. That is why we have decided to renovate our oasis to reflect the story of our essence. We are a destination with a million anecdotes, rich culture, and beautiful landscapes. And as of February 2021, we began with an embellishment process.
Our first stage is completed! In October, we were happy to share with all our guests our new areas: motor lobby, reception, Hix Bar & Lobby Lounge, Tauro Steakhouse, and 137 rooms.
Motor Lobby & Reception
The first impression on newly arrived guests is our utmost priority. From the moment you arrive at Mayakoba, you will feel a sense of belonging and connect with nature. Our renovated entrance and reception areas are an appropriately resplendent space worthy of the Mayan Heritage we carry around the property.
Hix Bar & Lobby Lounge
An airy, newly renovated lobby with a vast terrace gives patrons bird’s eye views of the dense mangrove forest, water canals, and wildlife of Mayakoba. The new design was inspired by the nature surrounding the property and the mangrove predominant of the area. “HIX” means jaguar in the Mayan language, and Jaguars are known for protection.
Tauro is a fine dining steakhouse with a sophisticated atmosphere featuring Mexican ingredients with classic steakhouse techniques and recipes rooted in excellence and authenticity.
It sources the best cuts and vegetables, elevating them with well-seasoned and intensely flavored sauces. Tauro features an in-house dry-aging program, raw bar, prime cuts, as well as a 2-course all-inclusive menu option.
Rooms and Suites
A perfect place for mindfulness, family, romance, and discovery.
While our focus will always be our guests, we will continue to work on our second stage in the upcoming year. So be ready to soak up the sun in our beautiful new beach club, which by the way will have gorgeous views to the blue turquoise Caribbean Sea, or relax on the over-the-water new seating in La Laguna. Much more improvements are yet to come, and we are sure you will enjoy them all.
