Beyond towering coconut palms, Belmond Maroma is a 63-room and Mexican resort reminiscent of a grand hacienda—chalk white set against a 200-acre jungle—along one of the world’s finest beaches. A Mayan mystique surrounds this natural paradise. Belmond Maroma is bushy palapas and authentic Mexican flavors. Large swimming pools with an ocean view or stay hushed like secrets behind lush gardens. A reverence for pure escapism and timeless hospitality draws guests from the world over. It’s a Mexican hideaway courageously rooted in the Yucatan’s rich culture and lived out everyday as a tribute to the Mayan gods, bordered by the world´s second longest barrier reef, providing world-class SCUBA and snorkeling. The reef provides safe sea bathing in all weather conditions and protects Belmond Maroma’s talcum powder-like white sand beach, which has been recognized as the “World´s Best Beach” by the Travel Channel.
Located approximately 15 minutes by car from Playa del Carmen and 35 minutes form Cancun Airport, Belmond Maroma is an oasis set on a quiet beachfront setting on the Riviera Maya. Beautiful uncrowded beaches, lush jungles, over 100 mystical Cenotes and Maya ruins and a variety of eco-adventure and sport activities are all located within the region. Served by most of the major airlines via Cancun International airport, it is only a one-hour flight from Miami; two hours from Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta; and just three hours from New York and Chicago.
Belmond Maroma’s authentic Maya sensibility is evident throughout. The resort is made up of several white stucco buildings, two or three stories in height each with thatched roof terraces to maximize views and privacy.
Buildings are joined by winding stone pathways lined with lush plantings, which are lit by over 1000 candles or torches each evening.
Each building has been crafted by hand by the same family of Maya masons and purposefully aligned to the stars to ensure proper energy flow so that mind, body and spirit are at peace. Interiors feature curved lines, indigenous building products and windows that capture sunbeams; oversized tubs adorned with Mexican tiles, and carved lighting niches that define sensuality.
Open to the sea and shaded by swaying palms, the resort offers 63 luxurious rooms and suites and one four-bedroom villa with original art by former resident artist Bertrand Castelli and handmade furniture. All guestrooms offer ocean or garden views, hand-loomed bedding and rugs, private terraces with sofas and/or double hammocks, bamboo shutters, telephone, in-room safes, and iPod station & CD player. Bathrooms are resplendent with organic toiletries and feature oversized tubs: hand-made and adorned with Mexican tiles, no two are alike.
Genuine Mexican flavors and an award-winning Executive Chef combine to create a memorable dining experience for even the most sophisticated palate. Belmond Maroma’s cuisine boasts a superb range that celebrates traditions of Yucatan while complementing the resort’s sense if luxury and elegance.
