Rosewood Mayakoba Reopen and Rejuvenated After Renovation

By Elite Traveler

Riviera Maya, Mexico – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Riviera Maya’s most luxurious resort, the 128 all-suite Rosewood Mayakoba, reopens today following a four-week, $1.6 million renovation, just in time to celebrate a new beginning of the Mayan Calendar. Led by renowned Mexican architect and interior designer, Jose Manuel Martinez Marquez, the renovation includes: the addition of 18 adjoining suites created from existing accommodations and restyled with artwork and furniture; a makeover of the resort’s distinct dining venues – Casa Del Lago Restaurant, Agave Azul Sushi Bar & Tequila Library, and Punta Bonita; remodeling and expansion of the gym at Sense, a Rosewood Spa; and new on-property experiences.

It all begins ensuite, where Rosewood Mayakoba has now offered up 18 connecting residences to make the resort an even more desirable destination catering to families or larger groups. The lavish suites sleep up to six guests each and are outfitted with high-end paintings and artwork by local artisans to reflect the destination’s heritage and a peaceful, soothing environment.

When the time comes to leave the room, however, families, couples, and even bachelors can rejoice with Rosewood Mayakoba’s new enthralling on-property amenities. The Culture Concierge, serving as the go-to for all things to do in the region and off-the-beaten-path activities will arrange day-tours upon request by prominent archeologists and historians who act as guides through the region’s famed Mayan archeological sites of Maya communities. Perfect for family excursions, with snorkeling, ziplining, and EcoTour options, Rosewood Mayakoba is also the ultimate romantic escape. After a day at the beach, couples can retreat to one of the three newly built palapas situated throughout the resort, take a dip in their suite’s plunge pool, refresh over cocktails on the waterfront terrace, take in the awe-inspiring views of the Caribbean Sea and end the night with a private beach dinner. For couples wanting a night out, the dynamic waterfront village of Playa del Carmen, boasts boutiques, restaurants, cafes and nightclubs.

When in need of some guy-time, make sure to check out the signature Greg Norman 7,000-yard, 18-hole golf course, El Camaleon, which helps to make Rosewood Mayakoba the ideal spot for a ‘mancation.’ Guys can play a round of golf or participate in the Jim McLean Golf School, spend the day deep-sea sport fishing on the hunt for marlin, sailfish, mahi mahi, wahoo, grouper, snapper and kingfish, or participate in tequila tasting with Tequiliers at the Agave Azul Tequila Library and choose from a unique collection of cigars.

The resort’s four dining venues, including the award-winning Casa del Lago, are all unveiling reinvented menus featuring local interpretations of international cuisine.Overlooking the lagoon, Rosewood Mayakoba’s signature restaurant Casa del Lago creates a serene ambiance for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A fresh new look is captured through vibrant corals, subtle beiges, and black designs detailing the ultra-plush fabric, along with pillows to accent each seat. The Mediterranean inspired menu at Casa del Lago features inventive dishes including a ‘tiradito’ of tuna with avocado and mango, lobster risotto with traditional Mayan corn, and their signature Paella.

For guests in search of a more casual atmosphere, Rosewood Mayakoba also boasts Agave Azul Sushi Bar & Tequila Library, La Cava and Punta Bonita, which offer the finest tequilas in the Riviera Maya, relaxed welcoming ambiance and an intriguing array of signature pizzas from the newly added brick oven.

Finally cap your trip in the emerald embrace of Riviera Maya’s award-winning spa, Sense, A Rosewood Spa®, which provides a new and distinctive approach to healing by offering curated treatments that call on traditional Mayan techniques to revitalize the mind, body, and spirit. Try newly added treatments like the Mayan Equinox Ritual—featuring a Temazcal session to balance body, mind and spirit— and the New Moon Treatment which, since inspired by the Mayan ceremony of the new moon honoring the Goddess of Moon and Fertility, is ideal for expecting mothers.
