The serene Rosewood Mayakoba retreat unfolds across 20 acres of crystal clear lagoons in the heart of the ecological enclave of Mayakoba, on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen.

Indigenous materials have been used to create a spacious and stylish resort, which is joined by waterways. Limestone, wood and water combine perfectly with the natural surrounding to provide 128 suites that are decorated in a minimalist style and appear to float on the water's edge.

The hotel has a mile of beachfront and a 17,000-square-foot spa located on its own private island. The spa island encompasses 12 treatment rooms, as well as eight Deluxe Spa Suites, each with a private treatment room, bathroom with outdoor garden shower, terrace with plunge pool, and rooftop sundeck.

The resort features three beautifully designed pools: a main pool, a beachfront infinity pool, and a spa lap pool. If you can drag yourself away from the luxury of the resort and the pristine white powder beaches, activities include diving, snorkeling and there is a golf course nearby.


Built along serene lagoons and the Caribbean Sea, the resort's 128 suites are strikingly modern in design yet crafted from such indigenous materials as to appear born of the jungle. Limestone, wood and water are fused in harmony with the natural surroundings. Upon arrival guests are transported by luxury boats or golf cart to their own personal sanctuary. All of the suites feature crisp, open spaces, contemporary furnishings and sliding-glass doors with wooden lattices for natural airiness. Accommodations at the luxury resort are complemented with such details as rooftop sundecks, over-sized terraces, spacious bathrooms (some with outdoor garden showers), plunge pools and boat docks.


The Rosewood Mayakoba welcomes children of all ages. Extra beds and cribs are available and adjoining suites can be booked for families. A variety of additional services and amenities can be arranged on request including baby monitors, in-room baby proofing, bed rails, children's bath robes and slippers, baby bath tubs, bottle warmers and baby skincare products. For younger children babysitting can be arranged on request and there is a soft room for the younger children to nap and relax whilst in the care of babysitters. For children aged 4-12 there is a complimentary Kids Club offering a whole variety of supervised activities. Facilities include a TV and games room and an arts and crafts area. Children under the age of 4 can also attend the club, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.


Rosewood Mayakoba features three excellent restaurants, beachside dining, a Tequila and cigar bar, three swimming pools, the El Camaleón championship golf course designed by Greg Norman. Activities on offer include scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, stand-up paddling boarding, spa treatment, a fitness center and a Rose Buds children’s club.


Guests at the Rosewood Mayakoba can indulge in a relaxing massage at the spa, join in a yoga class, take a leisurely boat trip through the mangroves looking for wildlife, relax at the beach club or enjoy preferential green fees at El Cameleon Golf Club, a renowned course winding through mangroves, jungle and with stunning ocean views. Visits can also be arranged to nearby Mayan ruins such as Tulum and Coba and to the Sian Ka'an ecological reserve.
