Perched on the upper-right-hand corner of the Yucatan peninsula, just some 70 km (42 miles) south of glitzy Cancún where shiny skyscrapers dominate the skyline, Banyan Tree Mayakoba is tucked between the pristine emerald green tropical mangrove and dazzling turquoise Caribbean Sea. Riviera Maya, Mexico, has a markedly different vibe from Cancun as resort developments are built no taller than four stories and environmental sustainability is a top priority.

Hotel Overview

A harmonious blend of nature and luxury, Banyan Tree Mayakoba takes the Caribbean lifestyle to new heights on Mexico's famous Riviera Maya coast. Opened in March 2009 to award-winning acclaim, welcome to your preferred new private pool villa escape.

Situated within the private gated integrated resort development of Mayakoba, Banyan Tree enchants with the romance of travel, fused with a unique sense of tranquil and private space, and complemented by touches of the signature Asian hospitality and warmth. The secure compound is accessible only to guests of the Mayakoba development, providing additional peace of mind when traveling to the Riviera Maya.

Along this coast, home to the second-largest coral reef in the world stretching from the Yucatán to Guatemala, Mayakoba has made its distinction by being a carefully maintained ecosystem of dunes, mangroves and freshwater lagoons - home to myriad indigenous species of fish, birds and mammals.


Feel at home in a unique pool villa tastefully decorated with handcrafted Mayan furnishings, yet retaining its modern comforts. Each freestanding villa curls around its own individual garden area, creating a private yet spacious outdoor area, in a unique layout drawn from courtyard houses of the Far East. Each villa also enjoys lush greenery and private swimming pools that begin from 30sqm.

Enjoy luxuries such as 42"-flat screen LCD TVs, iPod dockets, mini stereo system, complimentary wireless Internet connection, hammocks for lounging and a spacious work table. There are standard features: mini bar, hairdryer and bathrobes, walk-in closets, iron and ironing board, DID telephone, air-conditioning, in-villa safe and each night, turndown service.

Every guest has their own private swimming pool, loungers and enclosed compound in which to soak under the Caribbean sunshine. Depending on choice, villas may also offer outdoor heated jet-pools or sunken baths, massage beds, loungers and steam rooms, and a menu selection of pillows.

This is your refined space for living, relaxing and rejuvenating the senses. Combined with superb Asian-style service, modern Mayan architecture, award-winning spa, and sophisticated dining experiences, this is the perfect sanctuary you have been waiting for.


With a strong reputation for dining excellence, the culinary team at Banyan Tree Mayakoba has succeeded in creating restaurants that leave an indelible memory.

From authentic Thai and Asian favorites at Saffron, to the healthy, hearty eclectic cuisine at Tamarind, each signature restaurant caters to your taste buds and cravings.

These venues are also ideal for special occasions such as birthdays and parties, providing a beautiful space in which to celebrate, dine and enjoy time with loved ones.


Step into the "Sanctuary For the Senses" at Banyan Tree Spa Mayakoba - a place for physical, mental and spiritual renewal. Banyan Tree Spa brings its award-winning blend of Asian therapies, featuring massages and body treatments inspired by traditional Asian healing disciplines, to the Americas for the very first time.

As a spa innovator, Banyan Tree Spa introduces The Rainforest in Mayakoba, adding a new dimension to holistic rejuvenation. Enjoy the Rainforest's hydrothermal circuit, comprising alternating hot and cold thermal cabins, designed for guests to embark on a trail of wellness treats. Each thermal cabin is designed for one person or couple, offering the ultimate privacy. Walk through The Rainforest Trail, offering eight different hydrothermal therapy experiences including Rain Walk, Aroma Steam Chamber, Finnish Sauna, Rasul, Brine Cavern, Ice Fountain, Experience Showers and Vitality Pool.
