Exceptional culinary experiences at Fairmont Mayakoba

As part of an ongoing commitment to creating the most memorable and unique experiences for its guests, the award-winning AAA-5 Diamond Fairmont Mayakoba is thrilled to announce two very special culinary experiences planned for Mother’s Day. The first will take place on May 10th, when Mother’s Day is celebrated in Mexico, and the second on May 14th, when Mother’s Day is celebrated in the U.S. 

Both of these spectacular dining experiences will be presented by Chef Heriberto Flores, one of Mexico’s most sought-after culinary superstars. Owner of the renowned Nostalgia restaurant in the central highlands town of San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chef Heriberto’s cuisine pays homage to the local flavors and festivals in central and southern Mexico towns. The Nostalgia restaurant was created in 2015 to promote the gastronomy and culture of the Oaxaca region. With a focus on creatively prepared southern Mexican cuisine, Chef Heriberto offers guests a delightful twist on traditional dishes featuring moles, tlayudas, tamales, and enchiladas, as well as the chocolate and mezcal, commonly found in the Oaxaca region. With two delectable 6-course dinners planned for his visit in May to Fairmont Mayakoba, Chef Heriberto is sure to deliver an inspired once-in-a-lifetime gastronomic experience.

For the May 14th event, Chef Heriberto’s exquisite dinner will be followed by another unique Fairmont experience, its “Symphony in a Cenote”. Imagine being serenaded by a symphonic orchestra set in a mystical Mayan cenote where you’ll savor delectable tapas and sip refreshing cocktails. Sacred to the Maya, cenotes are known for their pristine, clear, cool water surrounded by limestone walls, creating an extraordinary venue for a musical journey to the earth’s centre. You’ll be entertained with classic melodies, as well as contemporary pop, from artists like Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Toto, Ed Sheeran, Queen, and more. This special event is part of Fairmont’s initiative to offer its guests experiences that go “All Beyond Limits“, where the luxury hotel company pushes the limits of possibility with experiences you have to see to believe, popping up at the most iconic hotels and resorts in the world.

In addition to these unique Mother’s Day dinner events, dining at Fairmont Mayakoba is a daily celebration of flavors, ambience, and attentive service. Culinary experiences at the Mayakoba resort transcend guest expectations spanning traditional Mexican, Italian, Japanese, contemporary coastal, international, and modern Latino dishes. Choose an all-inclusive plan or customize your stay with a la carte dining options. With eight unique options, dining at Fairmont Mayakoba is designed to satisfy every craving. From chic fine dining to beachfront casual and everything in between, the array of possibilities seems endless. In each dining outlet, you’ll discover inspired chefs practicing classic culinary techniques using the freshest local ingredients from the land and sea, all prepared to perfection.
