One of the top luxury hotels on the stunning Riviera Maya, Belmond Maroma is set amidst towering palm trees right on the beach, where the jungle meets the Caribbean Sea.
The setting of Belmond Maroma is very peaceful and enjoys beautiful ocean views. Days are spent enjoying tranquil natural setting, reading in hammocks, sunbathing on a beach lounger, taking gentle barefoot strolls on soft white sand, and cooling swims in azure waters.
There are swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness centre, rooftop yoga classes with a panoramic view of the ocean, and a range of watersports and land activities to enjoy.
Snorkel or scuba dive over colourful reefs, hire a private yacht to sail along the coast, take a guided walk in the jungle to spot parrots and butterflies, or take an eco-adventure ziplining through the trees.
Nearby, you can swim in crystal-clear cenotes, explore underwater cave systems, visit the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba, or enjoy the wonderful bars, shops and restaurants of Cancun and Tulum.
Belmond Maroma’s Kinan Spa is amazing, offering bespoke treatments, including massages, Mayan herbal wraps and temazcal saunas.
Guests stay in spacious luxury suites with King beds, hand-carved furniture, indigenous artwork, and private terraces. For families, I recommend taking a private beachfront Casa with four suites and a private plunge pool.
Cuisine at Maroma is spectacular and resident mixologists will ensure your evening cocktails are worthy of the magnificent sunsets. Guests can choose to dine by the pool or on the beach, in a private beach setting by candlelight, or with a stunning 360-degree view over the treetops from the observation tower.
Enjoy El Restaurante’s Mexican flavours, listening to the sounds of the waves, or incredible seafood at El Sol oceanside grill.
Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
