Bassano is an Italian-stylish restaurant with a casual setting that serves homemade pizzas, exquisite meals, and wine.

“Trattoria word,” which first appeared in English in 1832, is one of several words that have entered our language to refer to a specialized eatery- in this case, one specializer in Italian cuisine.

Renovated Location: In front of La Laguna Pool (center location)

Hix-Bar, Lounge & Terrace

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
