Perched on a pristine, white-sand beach and boasting a perfect Aaa Overall Beach Resort Rating, the peaceful Rosewood Mayakoba is one of the best resorts in the entire Mexico/Caribbean region. It attracts mostly couples, but welcomes families with children as well. Rates can be quite high; but the property offers a top-notch spa with unique Mayan-inspired treatments, brilliant butler service, gourmet restaurants specializing in various twists of Mexican cuisine, a sushi and tequila bar with over 100 brands of premium tequila, a network of tranquil swimming pools including an infinity pool, and a Greg Norman-designed golf course. The accommodations are luxurious, contemporary, and varied, constructed with locally-sourced materials such as Yucatan limestone. The Lagoon Suites, which guests are taken to by boat, are connected by exotic-feeling inlets and surrounded by lush tropical jungle; they come with rain showers, outdoor terraces with heated plunge pools, and private boat docks. The two-story Ocean View Suites have elevated private plunge pools with great views, and the Beachfront Suites have direct beach access; these two accommodation types are much closer to the beach than the Lagoon Suites. 3-Bedroom Presidential Suites and even larger Private Residence villas (up to 4 bedrooms) are also available. Activities include horseback riding, kayaking, deep sea fishing, and excellent snorkeling and scuba diving excursions. Tours to the ancient Mayan ruins of Coba deep in the rainforest can also be booked, which have options to include cenote or cave swimming.
Andaz Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Fairmont Mayakoba and Rosewood Mayakoba provide complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests on-site for guests staying three nights or more. PCR tests are also available at an additional charge. In the event of a positive test, guests can extend their stay at a discounted rate.
