First Phase – Completed!

First Phase – Completed!

Designing a space should be about what’s truly important – comfort, life, and fun. We began a journey of renewal, embellishment, and innovation to tell a visual story of who we are and what we love. Overall, this process led us to create meaningful environments where every pattern has a spirit and every space, an essence.

We are a destination with a million anecdotes, rich culture, and beautiful landscapes. A perfect place for mindfulness, family, romance, and discovery. 2021 was a year of closing chapters and rewriting stories. Thank you for being part of every process. We look at a brighter 2022 with new projects in mind and significant accomplishments to provide a unique luxury.

Completed Projects in 2021

  • Motor Lobby
  • Reception
  • Hix Lobby Bar & Lounge
  • Tauro Steakhouse
  • 137 Rooms

Motor Lobby

Project completed

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, Lounge & Terrace

Project completed

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.

The jaguars are a vital component of the design with a dominant position in the center of the space and hand-painted with Huichol motifs in black and white. In addition, we incorporated the big lamps into the area serving as an Asian reminiscence. Guests will feel welcomed and impacted by a space that speaks of Mexico. The local natural woods and the curved shapes will bring them back to the mangrove roots inspiration

Tauro Restaurant

Project Completed

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.

New Pools

Project Completed

The playita is our new beach club with three pools overlooking the Caribbean sea. A perfect spot to soak up the sun in Riviera Maya.

Rooms Refurbishment

137 Rooms Completed

To minimize the impact that the renovation might cause, we worked on a strategic plan to close some sections of our 98.8 acres on specific dates for the room refurbishment. These temporary changes will help us to reduce the impact on your experience during your vacation.
