Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico

With its pristine white sand, vivid turquoise ocean, and lush mangrove forests, Rosewood Mayakoba feels more like a tropical paradise than a holiday destination. 

Nestled on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, the already spectacular resort reaches the pinnacle of luxury with the recent opening of its first beachfront private residence, The Founder’s Villa. 

Situated apart from the main hotel on its own slice of beachfront, The Founder’s Villa is a shining example of timeless class, gorgeous design, and natural beauty that it feels somewhat like a modern-day James Bond set. 

Designed to maximize the natural light of the ocean-facing property, the villa offers immersive views of stunning Mexican Caribbean waters. The beach sits just a stone’s throw away from a 92-foot infinity pool. 

The 16,300-sq-ft property has been carefully curated to deliver an unparalleled vacation experience. Complete with eight bedrooms and dual-master suites, the private estate is the perfect sanctuary for larger groups. 

The kids club and babysitting service make this a top choice for family holidays, yet the beauty and serenity of this tropical sanctuary carries an undeniable heightened sense of romance. Sunset views over the bedrooms’ expansive terraces is a particularly breathtaking experience.  

Naturally, the private residence comes with all the benefits of the hotel itself, but the exclusive amenities of The Founder's Villa are especially fine – think a private beachfront cabana and firepit, daily in-villa breakfast, dedicated Rosewood Mayakoba staff and butler service, and even an exclusive golf cart for transportation. 

Outside of the villa, the hotel staff is more than happy to assist in facilitating experiences that include tours of the Mayan ruins, picnics aboard Mayakoba’s luxury yacht, and diving or snorkel excursions. But if you find yourself not wanting to leave The Founder’s Villa, well, we really couldn’t blame you.
