Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Platinum level
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a site of almost mythical beauty. It flawlessly blends elegance and nature, taking the Caribbean lifestyle to an unprecedented new height. A breathtaking getaway for relaxation, rejuvenation, romance and world-class dining, it is also the region's most sustainable five-star resort. With its revitalized culinary concepts, Thai-inspired therapies at the Banyan Tree Spa, 14 event-venues and the Greg Norman signature 18- hole El Camaleon golf course, home to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Classic, the resort raises the bar for premium leisure options and event planning. Perfect for private getaways, family trips and group events, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers 118 villas, ranging from romantic Bliss and Serenity Pool Villas to Family Residences and Ocean Front Villas. All include outdoor areas with private pools and terraces. Inspired by the interior courtyards of houses in the Far East, each villa is discreetly built to blend with the landscape, integrating the interiors and their idyllic surroundings. East meets West in every subtle detail, from the fragrance of flowers encircling your villa, to the softness of a kimono, fine linens and essential oils on your skin. Here, even world-weary guests discover the eloquence of tranquility.

This was a long weekend getaway for me and my wife to celebrate my birthday this month. We hadn't been to any Mexico resort in over 10 years, so we weren't sure what to expect, but this experience met and exceeded all our expectations. We're not terribly demanding people, but

My wife and I are currently returning from the Banyan Tree Mayakoba for what was supposed to be a 3 night trip. Due to losing one of our Passports upon arrival our trip was extended to 5 nights. It’s not uncommon when staying in such a large resort that is largely staffed that

Employees of resort were accommodating throughout entire stay. The grounds are kept extremely clean, especially the common bathrooms. The food was good but extremely expensive ($33 for a pizza). Would definitely go back

We stayed at the Banyan Tree over the x-mas holidays December 2018. My extended family of 25 had a truly amazing holiday. We spent 5 glorious days at the Banyan Tree. Our villa overlooked the golf course and lagoon. The villa was beautiful, the grounds were stunning and the

Spent a week here early November 18, a combination of 1st wedding anniversary and my wife’s 40th, so we had consciously pushed the boat out, but deliberately avoided All Inclusive, so that we could sample outside the hotel. We did have breakfast on site, which though mainly

Dear LM77WashingtonDC, Playa del Carme is the nearest city to Banyan Tree. Within 15min by car. The Fifth Avenue is the most popular area, where you can walk around and visit most of the know restaurants in the city. This is a long pedestrian street where you can enjoy an ice cream, the Mexican playful way of offering services and even artist expose their paintings. There is no need to take a cab from one restaurant to another. Kind regards, Peter Hechler General Manager

"Pricing varies from mid range to Luxury depending on size and season."
"All the villas are amazing. It is about location. Beachfronts are out of this world. Lagoon villas can be a bit "buggy"."
"I believe that all of the villas are gorgeous! You can't go wrong."
"There are no bad room options at this hotel so no need to upgrade to have a great experience."
"sunset villa is a great option as it enables you to retreat to your own pool after a day at the beach, with the sun still shining on you."
