Playa de Carmen, Mexico

Why You Will Love It

Banyan Tree Mayakoba is the place to go if you want privacy in paradise. The resort does an incredible job combining natural elements with luxurious touches to create a relaxing, zen environment. The beautiful villas are extremely spacious (they start at 3100 square feet!) with their own pools and outdoor space, and if you decide to get out of your little oasis, there’s no need to stress about crowds. The pools and the pristine beach have plenty of space and cabanas!

Defining Factor

The spa. Take your self-care routine to a new level by indulging in a treatment at Banyan Tree Makayoba’s award-winning spa. The spa integrates the Asian wellness philosophy of serenity, warmth, and comfort, and each treatment room is actually a villa so you continue to have peace and quiet.

Don't Leave Without

Experiencing the Haab Dinner. It is an authentic Mayan dining experience where you dine in an intimate outdoor space and enjoy a multi-course dinner (cooked in traditional Mayan kivas) paired with tequila. Beyond the food, you learn about Mayan culture from the host and the dancers keep it fun and lively.


There are great dining options at Banyan Tree Mayakoba. Saffron is the signature restaurant at the property but is also the top restaurant within the entire Mayakoba complex. Be sure to get a reservation! Cello has Northern Italian cuisine and the Sands Beach Club has lighter, more casual care.


El Camaleon, the golf course in the Mayakoba complex, hosts the only PGA tournament in Mexico. If you plan your trip in November, you can watch the pros play. And if you want to work on your own game, the Jim McLean Golf Academy is an excellent resource.
