Luxury Mayan Riviera resort Andaz Mayakoba elevates the vacation experience in some welcome and surprising ways.
There are resorts that cater to couples, others that put the focus firmly on families, and others still that prioritize group travel and events, wellness and more. But few resorts can do it all. Andaz Mayakoba aims for that precarious balance–and lives up to it in numerous ways–hitting the mark when it comes to providing the perfect backdrop for any type of trip all in one place.
Andaz Mayakoba is all in the family
With 41 suites to choose from at Andaz Mayakoba it’s easy to spread out no matter the size of your travel party. And with multigenerational travel becoming an increasingly popular way to reconnect or celebrate with family, the option of extra space is enticing. Open layouts and connecting rooms ensure ample areas for everyone to gather. While still providing privacy when needed. Large terraces complete with plunge pools are another welcome touch.
Calling all foodies
If culinary offerings rank high on your list of travel priorities, there is plenty to appreciate among the five on-site restaurants here.
The attention to detail, creativity and passion for local ingredients make it easy to go on a culinary journey during your stay. From authentic Mexican fare to fresh Mediterranean flavours enjoyed right on the beach. And don’t miss out on one of the property’s immersive cooking classes. Dishes vary, but everything is hands-on, informative and you get to enjoy what you make at the end.
Ripe for romance
Couples will have plenty of secluded spots to relax or romantic ways to reconnect. For starters, Naum Wellness & Spa offers six serene treatment rooms surrounded by jungle. This includes a couples’ suite ideal for indulging in a soothing treatment together. Many of the services offered incorporate Indigenous Mayan methods.
Other couples may want to book a charter package on Mayakoba’s sleek, private 55’ Van Dutch Yacht, including snorkelling stops and food and beverages. It’s also worth noting that the expansive property is home to ample options for scenic wedding venues and is well-equipped to create memorable and seamless events.
Play all day
Anyone who has travelled with kids knows the experience can be hit or miss. Especially if boredom sets in–something that won’t be a problem at Andaz Mayakoba. KimboKids Club (for children between the ages of four and 12) offers numerous activities. From arts and crafts to storytelling and games.
The resort’s robust activities program also includes kid-friendly options like making piñatas and Mayan drawing. Nature-loving kids won’t want to miss a complementary boat ride along the beautiful Mayakoba lagoons where they can try to spot crocodiles, turtles, fish and different types of birds.
Even more to explore
Culture comes to life thanks to Mayakoba’s unique curator program, offering a range of tastings, classes and one-of-a-kind experiences aimed at providing guests with a better understanding of the area. In addition, many of the buildings (16 in total) feature street art by renowned Playa del Carmen artist, Senkoe. Hop on a complimentary bike and take a mini art tour. Or use one of the bikes to explore the kilometres of nature trails. There’s also the option of booking a visit to the on-site cenote, an underground waterhole believed to be sacred by the Mayans.
Giving back at Andaz Mayakoba
In addition to the high quality of care shown to guests, there are also a few ways in which the property is giving back to the community and local environment.
These include the Oceanus organization dedicated to the restoration and conservation of coral life. Also the construction of La Casita del Agua, a community centre designated for environmental education. Guests have the option of donating one dollar per night to either initiative, which will be matched at 120 percent by Mayakoba. Whether a family, large group, couple or solo traveller, there’s something for everyone at Andaz Mayakoba.
