Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

In the Mexican Caribbean exists a luxe sanctuary called Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This other worldly paradise harmoniously blends superb luxury with its lush natural surroundings, all on the Riviera Maya coast. The Mayakoba development area provides a sense of seclusion and quiet respite along with what is normally considered on of the world's most popular stretches of shore. This, combined with the tradition and reputation of Banyan Tree and its Eastern-inspired elegance, makes for an unparalleled retreat. Accommodations are set in private pool villas, each remarkably decorated with handcrafted Mayan furnishings, and outfitted with ultra modern amenities, giving you the best of both worlds. The freestanding villas are ultra spacious in layout, and boast individual landscaped gardens, private outdoor terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor bathtubs, and sparkling private infinity pools. Stay well-connected with iPod docks, flat-panel televisions, wireless Internet access, and direct dial phones - although you may just find yourself enjoying the unadulterated bliss.

As if your accommodations were not already enough to indulge your every sense, Banyan Tree Spa Mayakoba is at the ready to pamper you even further with award-winning treatments and spiritual renewal. Experience The Rainforest, a complete hydrothermal ritual, opt for a Thai Herbal Detox, or choose a classic Royal Banyan Massage. No matter what your preference may be, Banyan Spa Mayakoba exceeds expectations with its incredible offerings and professionally trained staff. Contemporary dining is another highlight of the resort, and Banyan Tree Mayakoba is home to three signature restaurants, as well as numerous bars and alternative dining venues. Try a drifting dinner with Ixchel, a floating meal served right on the lagoon waters, or stop by Sands for a poolside snack and tropical cocktail. Saffron showcases traditional Thai cuisine for a flavor of the orient, and Tamarind is Mediterranean-inspired with a modern yet rustic dining room. When it comes to local activities, you are in a prime spot for nearly everything. On-site recreation options include golfing, snorkeling, canoeing, eco tours, yoga, tennis, and swimming in the resort's pair of freeform pools - and nearby there is access to archaeological sites, sandy beaches, and jungle trekking. Discover the hidden world of Mexico's Riviera Maya and make Banyan Tree Mayakoba your next stop in pursuing the extraordinary.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 20 hours ago

We traveled to the Banyan Tree with another family, and were blown away by the location and service at this property. We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom villas, with rooftop pool and could not have been happier. The idea of giving everyone a bike to use on the property is fabulous.(The teenagers in our group were extremely happy to be able to explore the property and hit the main pool with out the parents.) Fresh grouper fish tacos and ceviche at the beach was just the start of amazing service throughout the property. Nightly turndown service always yielded a small treat. (no more details on this, so you can be surprised). It is always nice to stay at a place where everyone seems to be enjoying their job. Some of the best customer service I have ever experienced.

Mayakoba is beautiful. The Banyan Tree is wonderful. The staff is very warm and the service is outstanding. Miguel Guadarrama took exceptionally good care of us during our stay. We will definitely return!

The sights, sounds, and service were all exceptional. Not only was I well cared for but my event's guest had nothing but positive things to say. Banyan Tree is an inviting and welcoming gathering place for groups, for couples and for families. I love this resort.

This resort is gorgeous. Every person who works there is friendly, helpful and informative. The villas are beautiful. Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of seaweed in the beach. We would definitely return!

My wife and I travel five star hotels/brands all over the world. I am not the type of person who likes to write reviews, but this case is different. I have to say that this resort has been the BEST place we have ever visited. It is not only about their product and the beauty of the hotel, which is gorgeous by the way, with private pools in each villa, handmade bathroom amenities, first class breakfast, amazing restaurants with great variety (we tried Saffron, Cello, Tomahawk and Oriente). It is more about PEOPLE... every single member of the staff, from the moment you arrive you can feel their passion for service, their genuine care with everything they do, from the security officer who greets you at the gate upon arrival to the Front Desk Agent who assists you when you check out, everyone here is wonderful... Daniel and Julio at the beach, Alejandra and Alfonso during breakfast, Jesus at the Front Desk, Housekeeping... We visited the other hotels in Mayakoba and they are beautiful too, however, you don’t feel the genuine care you feel here. Thank you for a wonderful experience and for taking care of us! We will be back as soon as we can!
