The latest addition to Fairmont Mayakoba, the AAA Five Diamond resort in Riviera Maya, is Maykana. A brand new beach club that aims to elevate the waterfront experience. The new addition is part of the property’s recent multi-million-dollar renovation, set for completion by the end of the year.
In addition to adding even more space to soak up the sun (amidst an already sprawling resort), Maykana also aims to ensure Mayan culture is represented in the overall experience. In fact, “May” (from the Mayan culture) represents the property’s desire for guests to experience local history. While “Kana” (basket in the Mayan language) represents the idea of a welcome basket, creating a home away from home for everyone who visits.
Crafted with locally sourced materials and using a palette that calls to mind the mangrove and canals that surround the property, Maykana turns the beach club experience into something that goes beyond cocktails on the sand. Think multiple food and beverage options, expansive terraces with epic views, private cabanas, pools and fire pits.
The chic adults-only rooftop features a bar and infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea, as well as sunken circular lounge areas reminiscent of cenotes. A clever design element paying homage to Mexican heritage. Cenotes are sacred in Mayan culture.
Local and international food and drink options
Food and drink options cater to a variety of palates and incorporate local ingredients. Brisas offers Mediterranean plates and mezzes. Aqua serves up Latin-inspired fare. Fuego features a wood-fired grill and bohemian vibe. Gaia Seafood Restaurant is the beach club’s signature eatery and a must-try for fresh seafood. While Cielo Rooftop Bar is the beach club’s adults-only lounge.
Tucked away in the heart of the Riviera Maya, Mexico, the 401-room Fairmont Mayakoba is set on 45 acres within a private luxury resort community, surrounded by lush mangrove forest and scenic canals. In addition to Maykana, the property also boasts spacious guestrooms, Willow Stream Spa, five restaurants, a golf course and more.
