Banyan Tree Mayakoba

| |

Located on the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Riviera Maya stretches from Puerto Morelos to Playa del Carmen and south to the town of Tulum. For centuries, it housed the epicenter of one of the most flourishing and enigmatic civilizations in the human history, the Maya.

The white sand beaches and crystal-clear Caribbean Sea are now witnesses to the multicultural and hippie-chic Riviera Maya, which has outstanding natural diversity, historic artifacts, cultural riches, and cuisine, as well as the incomparable warmth its people.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba is the epitome of premium resort living, bringing Asian hospitality to the idyllic Riviera Maya. Nestled within a private, gated resort, here you can immerse yourself in pristine nature while enjoying the Riviera Maya's charm.



116 exquisitely designed villas and residences with one, two, or three bedrooms.  All rooms are immersed in the forest with spacious areas, luxurious Asian furniture, your own private pool, and much more. The villas are an intimate oasis surrounded by picturesque lagoons, lush mangroves, a PGA golf course, and beaches with sand as white as sugar.

Banyan Tree was founded with fundamental values of sustainable development in mind. Our motto is to protect our environment and support the local community, and we aim to continue being an agent of social and economic development through responsible tourism. We strive to inspire staff, guests and partners in maintaining a sustainable, responsible, comprehensive, and long-term approach in all of our business decisions.

Mayakoba is a site that encompasses diverse and rich ecosystems including beach and coral reefs, lagoons, and canals, and tropical forest and mangroves and Banyan Tree Mayakoba was built in a way that conserves these important sites.

Our Be Good platform reflects Banyan Tree’s commitment to the development of a better society for all. The platform has two main sections: Stay for Good, which involves our guests in our sustainability efforts, and Meet for Good, which provides services for sustainable events.

Our 1 -2 -3 -4 -5 CSR program covers all aspects of sustainability. We reduce the use of resources, have annual reforestation goals that benefit local communities and reduce the impacts of climate change, provide educational opportunities for underprivileged children, carry out restoration activities in local areas, and raise environmental awareness and provide opportunities for our guests to actively participate in our environmental and social responsibility program.

We also have programs to protect sea turtles and rescue melipona bees, empower local production, and have a volunteer program.
