We are heading to Riviera Maya, Mexico for ILTM Americas – a fantastic luxury travel trade show – but where are the best hotels in Riviera Maya?? This is one of my favorite vacation spots and with so many wonderful hotels to choose from, a breakdown of the best of the best could be helpful for anyone trying to extend their summer or heat up their winter!
Banyan Tree Mayakoba – this is the go to choice for anyone who wants privacy and tranquility. Each room is a villa with a private pool and huge outdoor area. You never have to leave your room if you don’t want to. You can even have all your meals delivered to your private outdoor dining area. A totally zen experience.
Maroma – this is all about the beach! The rooms are simple but elegant and everything is close to the sea and sand. For an authentic Mexican experience with a true sense of place this is the place to be.
Viceroy – this all villa eco-resort is barefoot luxury at its finest. But you will be close to nature so if the sounds of the jungle are not your thing, this might not be the right choice for you.
Rosewood Mayakoba – this is the place to be if you want to see and be seen. If you are looking for more of a sophisticated glam vibe with some fun nightlife and gorgeous accommodations you will love it here.
Grand Velas – this is a 5 star all-inclusive. All rooms are suites and the food is delicious – great for families or couples.
