A few months ago I headed to the Rivera Maya area of Playa del Carmen, just outside of Cancun. Part family wedding, part utter relaxation. The trip turned out even better than planned. Why? Because of Mayakoba! This area is a population of three luxury resorts: Rosewood, Fairmont and Banyan Tree. Each with its own unique vibe – hip & cool, relaxing and spa-like and exotic and removed. We took pleasure in experiencing each of the properties and what they had to offer. Cocktails from Rosewood were bar none, the green juice and private mineral pool at Fairmont was incredibly relaxing and the restaurants at Banyan Tree took the cake (and was my favorite hotel on the property).
In the midst of trying to plan several other trips for the springtime, I couldn’t help but look back on a trip done right. And one that was just as easy to get to as flying cross-country…except the turquoise waters could not be beat!
