This property boasts a picture-perfect setting in Mexico. The property is surrounded by tropical forest and crystal-clear canals. Situated in an eco-hotel community, this property lies just 40 minutes' driving distance away from the beauty of Cancun and just a 15 minute drive from Playa del Carmen.

Guests can take advantage of several activities, such as exploring nature trails on foot or bikes, scenic boat tours on crystal clear canals, non-motorised watersports, El Pueblito Mayakoba, Willow Stream Spa and El Camaleon Golf Club. Children have a space just for them at the Discovery Club.

Fairmont Mayakoba has enhanced its dining experience through a new partnership with world-renowned chef and restaurateur Richard Sandoval. Through a phased approach, each of our four restaurants – Lobby Lounge, El Puerto, Brisas and La Laguna – has been redesigned, ushering in a new culinary era.

The re-imagined restaurants offer a completely new dining experience: from curated menus featuring modern Mexican, Latin and coastal concepts, to the actual design and styling of the spaces, guests enjoy fresh and eclectic dining in a world-class resort setting. 

In the heart of a tropical jungle, surrounded by natural lagoons, you’ll find Willow Stream Spa at Fairmont Mayakoba—a mystical backdrop for an unforgettable spa experience that recalls the textures, colours and scents of ancient Mayan culture. In the shadow of the stones and trees the Mayans used to erect legendary monuments and temples thousands of years ago, you’ll find places to rest, reflect and find your energy.

You’ll find unique treatments and experiences based on local tradition and flora, ranging from Willow Stream signature experiences to uniquely Mayan traditions featuring local herbs, essential oils and extracts. Whichever you choose, the healing touch of our Willow Stream therapists will guide you to rediscover your energy.

The Riviera Maya boasts the world's second largest coral reef, which is easily reached from Cozumel, a short trip from the resort. The warm, gentle Caribbean currents ensure the area is a popular destination for scuba diving and snorkelling. Exploration of the mystical underwater cenotes (luminous caverns that were once a source of fresh water for the Mayans who inhabited the area), a visit to the Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba or Chichen Itzá (one of the new Seven Wonders of The World), or an excursion to Sian Ka’an (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) will add a truly unique element to your stay. Nearby, Playa del Carmen provides an exuberant nightlife, in addition to sophisticated boutiques and stores offering traditional Mexican handicrafts.
