Riviera Maya, Mexico
Banyan Tree Mayakoba
The Ultimate In Privacy
What it is
A tranquil retreat—you may feel like the only guest.
What it isn't
Lively enough for kids or social butterflies.
What we think
The most private of the three resorts in the Mayakoba complex, the Banyan Tree is a sanctuary in perfect harmony with its natural landscape. Sitting among dunes, coral reefs and freshwater lagoons, the 121 standalone villas are a gorgeous combination of Asian and Mayan aesthetics, with sleek lacquered furniture, soaring ceilings and pointed roofs. With their private pools and views of the bright blue lagoons, they're designed as romantic hideaways—you may never step outside. If you do, there's an array of great restaurants (the Thai-style Saffron is a standout), a beautiful spa, a championship golf course and, of course, the beach.
You're here because
You value privacy and want to be immersed in the landscape of the Riviera Maya.
Sharing another unforgettable sunset and dinner with your loved one as you float along the lagoons on your private trajinera, or dining boat.
