Mexico | Banyan Tree Mayakoba


WHY: FAM trip
WHEN: May 2014 
WHO: Me and other Virtuoso agents

Positively scerene and charming, fusing Asian accents with Mexican culture.


TYPE: Boutique beach resort with an Asian flair.

ROOMS: We all had the deluxe villas, although entry level rooms, it was perfect for a couple and the best locaation to the main building so walking access to bar, restaurants, spa, etc. All the villas have private pools.

POOL/GYM: Yes, several pools on property, serene and secluded

RESTAURANT: Sampled every restaurant on property and one was as good as the other. Assortment of delicous and unusual choices, excellent service. Favourites, ofcourse, is the Saffron Restaurant with it's dreamy setting on a wooden deck in the mangrove.

BAR: Bars. drinks available all around the property but they seemed to have this private and scerene athmosphere. Not intrusive to non drinkers

VIBE: Intimate, romantic, low-key luxury.

SPA: Amazing Spa facilities, especially the Rainforest experience, unique and fun!

WIFI: Yes. And there is a business center.

KIDS: I can see a well travelled family having a lovely experience here.

LOCATION: in the Mayakoba area - one of the villages in the Riviera Maya




- A few things -

I thoroughly enjoyed the low key experience and atmosphere all over the property. Would have been nice to have local entertainment brought in for some relaxing evening time enjoyment at the Bar or Pool or Lounge areas. The Asian mix with the Mexican flavor is appealing. The eco boat tour offered to all guests is an absolute must - unusual wildlife, plant life and bird watching made interesting by knowledgeable local guides who also perform other duties on property.
