A resort with flair, seclusion and serious style: it’s not hard to see why Rosewood Mayakoba is one of the World’s Top 100 Hotels (according to Conde Nast).

This 1,600-acre luxury resort enclave along the coastline, just north of Playa del Carmen (4 miles) and south of Cancun (35 miles), is built along a serene Caribbean lagoon and you arrive to your suite’s own private dock via a luxury boat or by golf buggy. Each of these luxurious and cutting-edge suites is self-contained for privacy and enjoy their own rooftop sundeck, plunge pool, terraces and boat dock.

With a couple of infinity pools, powder-white beaches to swim in, golf, and full-spa to spoil you, the hotel is also well placed to explore the natural and archaeological wonders of the Mayan Riviera. The service is outstanding, as is the food, making this possibly the best hotel in Playa del Carmen if not on this entire stretch of coastline.

The hotel is also lauded for its actions in sustainable tourism and social responsibility, having helped build a local school that provides education to over 200 students.

Positive Impact

Supporting the community

The friends and family of Rosewood Mayakoba have financed the Centro Educativo K’iin Beh, a newly built school established for the children of its employees and local youth, located 15 minutes from the luxury resort. Serving over 200 students in its inaugural year, the school offers bilingual, full-time education for children in elementary and middle school. The creation of the school is a reflection of Rosewood Mayakoba’s deep rooted commitment to the well-being and success of its staff and surrounding community.


Travellers – both individuals and groups – who may be interested in contributing to the school through sustainable tourism in Mexico, are advised to do so in the shape of financial donations, which help to provide the school with the likes of supplies such as pencils, paper, markers and more, or through hands-on, on-site projects like reading or computer lessons.
