Rosewood Mayakoba Review
From the moment you set foot on the palapa-roofed boat that brings you to your room's private dock, the Rosewood transports you to an exotic world. Meandering trails lead through the 1,600-acre grounds, laced with a labyrinthine network of lily-strewn lagoons. In keeping with the contemporary Mexican motif, villas are crafted from indigenous materials such as wood and limestone, and many are built on stilts over the water. Every romantic room has a garden shower, plunge pool, boat dock, and rooftop sundeck. All nine categories of rooms include personal butler service. Its romantic atmosphere notwithstanding, the resort is welcoming to families; children under 12 stay free.
Pampered in Paradise
Pushing the boundaries of luxury, this exquisite resort spills across 1,600 acres of beach and jungle, all connected by a network of crystal clear lagoons and canals that wind from the limestone lobby to the pristine beaches. Tucked under a canopy of mangroves, rooms are spacious (some as large as 3,200 square feet) and include outdoor showers, plunge pools, garden baths, roof-top sundecks, and private docks where guests can hail a boat and navigate the property. Everyone is assigned a private butler, on-call around the clock for anything from packing your bags to shining your flip-flops. The 17,000-square-foot spa is on its own island and offers treatments that incorporate Mayan traditions.
