Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya

Mexican luxury in stunning Riviera Maya
With an unassuming, tucked-away entrance, Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya is a quiet gem obscured by lush foliage and giant coconut palms. Guests take a short drive under a tropical canopy to discover a luxe, colonial-style hacienda with gorgeous manicured gardens surrounding a pool.

Two things make the arrival experience especially sweet — the welcome drink, a housemade margarita infused with licorice and honey-flavored liqueur, and a peek at the white-sand beach and endless blue horizon beyond it.

Located between the sometimes-touristy Cancun and the sleepy bohemian town of Tulum, the newly renovated luxury resort resides on a gorgeous stretch of beach surrounded by tropical jungle.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • At 30,000-square-foot Maroma Spa by Guerlain, retreat into one of the nine spa cabins to partake in ancient healing rituals. The spa also offers outdoor wellness activities, an apothecary and a relaxation lounge inspired by Mayan mysticism and its link to the stingless Melipona bee.
  • With yoga retreats, meditation sessions and a 560-square-foot fitness center, the active set will have no trouble squeezing in the perfect workout.
  • The resort can arrange sailing expeditions, snorkeling trips to the world’s second-largest barrier reef nearby, golf and even swimming in the region's spectacular cenotes.
  • Experience Mayan cultural treasures through the filter of Belmond’s signature luxury — a helicopter tour to Chichén Itza starts on the beach and sweeps you off to the ancient ruins.
  • Designed with privacy in mind, Villa Maroma is the prime accommodation here, offering four suites and its own pool. 
Things to Know
  • From May to September, take advantage of the rare opportunity to see and snorkel with whale sharks.
  • Explore the area around the resort to get a little taste of Mexico’s nightlife. Nearby Playa del Carmen serves up cobblestone streets, world-class shopping, and hip bars and restaurants.
  • For those looking to realign the spirit, the beachfront Temezcal ritual at the Maroma Spa by Guerlain should do the job. Inhale the herbal steam and listen to the sounds of traditional drums and crashing waves as a Mayan shaman leads you though this unique meditation session. 
The Rooms

  • Celebrated designer Tara Bernerd spearheaded the 2023 renovation of the light, airy, art-filled rooms.

  • The 72 rooms and suites sit just steps from the beach.
  • Some accommodations come with plunge pools, terraces and impressive views that stretch to the Mexican Caribbean.

The Restaurants
  • Any culinary journey here should begin at Freddy’s Bar, which serves an all-sustainable raw menu and cocktails along the water.
  • Get a taste of Mexico’s various regional cuisines at Casa Mayor, an all-day restaurant with a terrace that overlooks the water.
  • Hidden between the jungle and the sea, Signature Restaurant lets you dine in seclusion. The open kitchen turns out grilled dishes, such as seafood, meats and seasonal, locally grown vegetables.
  • Relaxed lounge Bambuco shakes up cocktails that draw on the spirit of the Riviera Maya and prepares snacks to accompany them.
