If you’re looking for a hospitality brand to be your tried and true all around the world, Belmond is it. Properties are thoughtfully curated to enhance each destination. Guests can stay along the Portofino coastline in glamorous accommodations that complement the dramatic cliffside views or nestle down a short way away in a quaint guest house that pairs well with the surrounding fishing village. It is an impressive accomplishment to ebb and flow in various styles and spaces without compromising true luxury. However, Belmond’s portfolio features an impressive range of travel opportunities reaching far beyond just luxury hotels. Train journeys with unique itineraries, river cruises through exclusive destinations in Europe, and easily accessible travel packages that bundle them together make Belmond an option seasoned travelers never have to leave the comfort of. So, what’s new at Belmond?
Belmond creates a sense of place easily synonymous with luxury and comfort. That is why it’s big news that Maroma, a Belmond Hotel on the coast of the Riviera Maya, is bringing flare back to the location. Reopening August 3, 2023, Maroma is returning with ten new ocean-front suites, totaling a 72-room property. The surrounding Mayan influence is captured through authentic, artisanal features such as colorful tile displays, local art around the property, and the series Fotografía Maroma, in which Mexican photographers showcase their favorite viewpoints in the resort. Local fusion is not lost on gastronomy, either. Meals at Maroma are colorfully arranged and feature exciting takes on traditional flavors. Illuminated by stripping down to the refined craft, Maroma is a place where culture is honorably fused with luxury to create a destination that will brighten the already-beautiful Riviera Maya.
