Fairmont Mayakoba

Rated 9.1 in 200 reviews. 401 rooms.


Fairmont Mayakoba was designed and built specially considering our mangrove’s protection. These forests of the coastline are considered the “kidneys of our planet” as they are responsible for cleaning the water in our coral reefs.

During its construction phase Fairmont Mayakoba preserved most of the land’s natural jungles, flora and fauna. By implementing an ancient Mayan technique called “socoleo” (used to highlight the beauty of plants by pruning and replanting them) more than 1,500 trees were rescued and relocated all around the property. Today, those plants have grown and multiplied, and some are on the process of becoming mature trees.

During the property’s construction phase, there were also special measures taken to care for the animals found onsite. More than 40 species, including exotic birds and iguanas, where relocated for safety. Additionally, during the construction phase the hotel made sure to preserve green areas between the buildings and casitas, creating a natural habitat for many spices

This luxury AAA Five Diamond Award winner resort in the Riviera Maya is made up of a series of low-rise buildings connected by waterways. It is surrounded by a lush tropical forest and offers wonderful sea views.

Fairmont Mayakoba’s 20,000 square foot Willow Stream Spa offers treetop treatment areas and a range of beauty and massage treatments based on the region’s local tradition and flora. There is an additional charge for access to the fitness centre and spa area.

There are several on-site restaurants and bars at the resort, including a grill and seafood restaurant, a sushi bar and a swim-up bar.

Discovery Club & Adventure Camp offer cultural and educational activities for kids 5 to 12 years old. El Camaleon Riviera Maya Golf Club, recognized by the Audubon Society, is suited for all skill levels and was designed by Greg Norman.

The resort is car-free and guests can access the different areas by boat, on foot following the well-marked nature trails, or by bicycle or staff-driven electric golf cart.

Located next to the 18-hole El Camaleón Golf Course, Mayakoba resort features 5 outdoor swimming pools and offers private access to Playa del Carmen beach.

Cancún International Airport is about 45 minutes’ drive away and Playa del Carmen can be reached in about 15 minutes by car.
