Motor Lobby

Project completed – Q4 2021

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 – Q4 2021

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 – Q4 2021

Tauro is a fine dining steakhouse with a sophisticated atmosphere featuring Mexican ingredients with classic steakhouse techniques and recipes rooted in excellence and authenticity.
