One of only two overwater bungalow resorts in Mexico, Rosewood Mayakoba is a fabulously opulent place that gets rave reviews for the beauty of its accommodation, its sublime beachside setting and the quality of its service and facilities, in particular its award winning spa.
The resort has 129 very sleek and modern suites and villas of varying sizes from 780 sq. ft. to 1500 sq. ft, all of which come with an array of luxury facilities and the very finest interior design, none more so than their overwater bungalows, or Lagoon Suites as they are titled.
They eschew the traditional thatched hut style for a more sleek, modern design, and boast private plunge pools and spacious open plan bathrooms with bathtubs and indoor and outdoor showers.
They are adults only with a maximum occupancy of two, and feel very spacious with 977 sq. ft. of interior space and 498 sq. ft. of private terrace outside which has the infinity style plunge pool (that can be heated, rather unnecessarily perhaps..).
Internally they have a large double bedroom with walk in closets, a lounge area with seating and a dining table. In room facilities include WiFi, Satellite TV, DVD player, iPod docks, Bose music systems and 24 hour room service.
Prices start at 1,250 USD per night.
FACILITIES & THINGS TO DO:
Though the overwater bungalows at Rosewood Mayakoba, like in most places, are adults only, the resort itself is family friendly, there is in fact a kids club here, and children can be accommodated in the other suites and villas.
There are a number of fantastic restaurants to choose from here; Caso del Lago serves Italian with a Mexican twist, Agave Azul mainly does Asian influenced seafood dishes, Punta Bonita is a Mexican bistro while the cool Aqui Mi Quedo serves Mexican and Caribbean street food, has a casual bar like atmosphere, and is adults only.
La Fondita is a Mexico City style informal tostaderia with indoor and outdoor seating and with a menu mainly composed of small dishes and snacks including some signature tostadas and fresh ceviche.
A special mention goes to La Ceiba, a 20,000-square-foot outdoor fine dining experience that is more than just a restaurant. The food here is mainly traditional Yucutan, with a spotlight on traditional Mayan open flame cooking techniques, and much of the ingredients come fresh from the adjoining kitchen garden.
The place is designed to be an interactive experience for guests who can partake in cooking demonstrations, cocktail making lessons and various tasting sessions.
Bespoke dining can also be arranged from any of the above restaurants, in secret, romantic locations around the resort or, if you would prefer, in your own suite or villa.
There are a number of bars around the resort, three communal swimming pools (including one just for kids) and luxurious, award winning spa facilities; Sense Spa Rosewood being once chosen as the #1 Spa in the World by Forbes Magazine. The complex also has a gym/fitness center and golfers can access the nearby Greg Norman, 7,000-yard, 18-hole golf course, El Camaleón.
A whole range of water sports can be organized here too as well as various tours and excursions of differing themes; cultural, historical, culinary etc.
The resort is in the famous Playa del Carmen, in the heart of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera, just an hour from Cancun and its international airport from where a shuttle bus can be waiting to pick you up.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“It was simply the most fantastic hotel. We went for our honeymoon and stayed there for 4 nights (as it is really quite expensive for us). But it was the most wonderful end to our two week trip. The staff were excellent, the facilities beautiful and everyone made us feel so special….”
“An extraordinary hotel that is a master at making you feel special–no matter what your age. Because it’s expensive, I was worried that it would be stiff and snobby…it was anything but. The hotel guests were almost as delightful as the hotel staff who I would have loved to take home with me. Vacations are for pampering yourself. This hotel has got that down to a science….”
