A sanctuary for the senses, Banyan Tree Mayakoba welcomes you to the essential Banyan Tree experience in a resort that provides a joyful habitat for the spirit. Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a place where ancient civilizations embrace each other and where the passionate nature of Mexico is soothed by the gentle touch of the Far East.

In the ancient Maya language, Mayakoba means village over water. Banyan Tree Mayakoba is true to this definition, surrounded by lagoons, mangroves and bordered by the sea. A resort for the renewal of both mind and body, it gathers those who come under the leafy shelter of the Banyan, a tree native to the Orient and thought to be magical in its power to nurture.

Perfect for private getaways, family trips and group events, Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers 121 villas, ranging from secluded Garden Villas to Beachfront Villas. All include outdoor areas with pools and terraces. Inspired by the interior courtyards of houses in the Far East, each villa is discreetly built to blend with the landscape, integrating interiors to their surroundings. East meets West in every subtle detail, from the fragrance of flowers surrounding your villa, to the softness of a kimono, fine linens and essential oils on your skin. Here, even world-weary guests discover the eloquence of tranquility.

Enjoy sundowners with your soulmate or a family dinner served on your private terrace…the villas enhance every moment of your stay. Enveloped by the hauntingly beautiful scenery and bordering a generous beach, the Riviera Maya luxury resort is an iconic setting for romance and relaxation.

Be swept away by pristine coastlines and robust life forms in this bounty of freshwater lagoons and mangroves, natural dunes, intricate coral reefs and the famed Riviera Maya coast. Dance your soul on the wind of the Caribbean.
