With summer around the corner and the world slowly getting back on its feet, it’s no secret that every day our need to escape from home keeps growing, and quickly. No matter where you have been spending quarantine, the truth is, we all need a break and what better place than the ever-stunning Riviera Maya.

Nestled in the heart of Riviera Maya, Mexico, and surrounded by a pristine Caribbean shoreline with lush mangrove forest intersected by water canals, Fairmont Mayakoba is a paradise for all of us who seek to reset and welcome a new beginning.

The 401-room resort sets on 240 acres within a private, luxury community. Fairmont Mayakoba’s nature is now, more than ever, the perfect destination for the “new normal.”

With over 46,000 Sq. Ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space, an energizing 3,700 Sq. Ft. Willow Stream spa featuring 20 treatment rooms, five pools, and over ten culinary offers, new sanitary protocols are now being implemented to guarantee proper social distancing and a safe environment for all guests and employees.

Fairmont Mayakoba stays true to its nature, and while you escape to this tropical paradise, we assure you unique experiences that will bring excitement while creating memorable moments.

With so much to do and experience, it is worth highlighting some amazing experiences guests can look forward to experiencing at Fairmont Mayakoba.

Guided Ecology Boat Tour

Boasting over 300 species that live and thrive in Mayakoba enjoy a guided boat tour to spot wild birds through our water canals. Discover why we are called “The Venice of the Caribbean.”

Turtle Release Program

Until 2019 almost 7,000 guests and workers have accompanied us to release 25,079 sea turtles of the four species born in the Mayakoba turtle camp. Located near Fairmont’s beach restaurant, Brisas, guests can learn more and participate in this program.

Melipona Bees

Fairmont Mayakoba cultivates endemic “Melipona” bees, which produce a type of honey that’s known for its medicinal purposes. The bees are native to the Yucatan and are stingless. In addition to incorporating the honey bee in recipes, it is also used in treatments at the Willow Stream Spa. 

Coral Reef Restoration Program

Guests can sail away in a guided catamaran on a fascinating adventure of discovery through a private snorkeling tour of the resort’s coral nursery. Guests can get a behind-the-scenes look at how Fairmont Mayakoba grows and harvests precious Acropora Palmata coral to be transplanted into the Mesoamerican Reef second-largest in the world.

Edible Insect Degustation

Edible insect degustation goes back to Mexico’s indigenous gastronomy, which has become a delicacy. Under the direction of Chef Fernando Canales at Fairmont’s La Laguna restaurant, the insects are prepared and seasoned using simple yet flavorful herbs accompanied by Mexican antojitos. Guests can enjoy dried grasshoppers, maguey worms, ant eggs, crayfish, escamoles (a larva from the chicatana ant), and more, all paired with Mexico’s legendary agave-based liquor, mescal, and tequila.

And while the Mexican Caribbean awaits, ready to welcome guests back, at Fairmont Mayakoba, we have launched our new and exciting Stay Close offer, where every second night is on us!  Book one night and receive one complimentary night during the same stay.
