Where style meets nature

The Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya invites guests into a lush natural environment that helps them connect with local and indigenous culture. It’s the first Mexican resort for lifestyle brand Andaz, and it's located in a secluded and revered area known as Playa del Carmen, on 590 acres of breathtaking Caribbean oceanfront with mangrove and lagoon surroundings. But here's why else it should be on your travel bucket list: 

1/3Design

With a unique design inspired by the surrounding abundance of natural elements, Costa Rican nature architect Ronald Zurcher created a natural atmosphere with a mix of trees, bedrocks and water, as well as  Mayan cultural elements. When guests arrive at the majestic resort, they enter a sculpturally striking lobby with walls clad in wood, floors in stone and ceiling in cane. A beautiful circular water figure at the centre of the lobby reflects the region’s ancient cenotes, mystical underground reservoirs of water.

2/3Rooms & Functions

Open layout guest rooms and suites overlook crystal clear lagoons, mangrove and resort gardens, if not the Caribbean coastline. Each of the rooms also features crafted elements made by local artisans, such as beautiful tiles.

The Andaz Mayakoba Resort is also an environmentally friendly resort that practices responsible use of water and energy via its efficient treatment and recycling water plants. There is little to no plastic water bottles on the property, and they are making a great effort to completely eliminate plastic bottles and single-use plastic in the near future.

3/3Dining

Ready for some Mexican food? Andaz Mayakoba offers four different on-site restaurants and bars featuring unique design and dining concepts. 

Casa Amate offers sophisticated and authentic Latin American cuisine that is meant to evoke memories of home or of a trip to an eclectic traveller. Here, they also offer an extensive selection of spirits, liqueurs and mixers made with spices and fresh locally sourced ingredients.

Cocina Milagro is the resort's poolside pavilion restaurant, offering offers an array of culinary stations that can whip up local to international specialities. 

Meanwhile, Sotavento, which means "where the wind takes you", offers casual and relaxing dining experiences with stunning views of the Caribbean. Expect dishes of Mediterranean cuisine, including fresh seafood, salads, appetisers and flavorful desserts. 

Last but not least, Tinta del Pulpo offers a market-style feast of tacos, ceviches, Yucatan specialities and locally-crafted artisan beers. 

Part of this eco-resort's green initiatives includes the replacement of plastic straws with ones made of avocado seeds that degrade in 90-240 days.
