The Rosewood Mayakobá (www.rosewoodmayakoba.com) in Mexico’s Riviera Maya was ranked one of the best hotels worldwide and the top resort in Mexico in Travel+Leisure magazine’s recently-published World’s Best 2009 Awards.
The magazine’s 14th annual readers’ poll placed the Rosewood Mayakobá 18th internationally and first in the Resorts in Mexico category.
Three Riviera Maya properties made Travel+Leisure’s Top 15 Resorts in Mexico list in addition to the Rosewood Mayakobá: the Maroma Resort & Spa (11th, www.maromahotel.com) and the Royal Hideaway Playacar (15th, www.royalhideaway.com).
“Mexico’s Riviera Maya has long been one of the world’s top luxury vacation destinations, as prestigious recognitions such as the Travel+Leisure World’s Best 2009 Awards clearly demonstrate,” said Javier Aranda, director of the Riviera Maya Destination Marketing Office.
Aranda explained that Mexico’s Riviera Maya has received many recent travel recognitions, including Top Destination in Mexico (Travel Weekly magazine, 2004 to 2008), The Crystal Apple Award for Best Destination (Apple Vacations, 2008), One of the Hottest Beach Destinations (Orbitz International, 2008), WAVE Award for Sexiest Beach Destination (TravelAge West magazine, 2007 and 2008) and Most Sexy Beach Destination (Recommend magazine, 2008).
