Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa

Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is awarded Modern Bride’s “Word’s Best Honeymoon Destination.” Located on 25-acre beachfront portion of a 500-acre coconut plantation on the Riviera Maya, Maroma Resort & Spa is a rustically luxurious hideaway built in the tradition of the Mexican haciendas where personal service, warm hospitality and privacy are unsurpassed. This romantic 65-room hideaway is reputed to be among the finest resorts in Mexico. Maroma Resort & Spa is nestled at the edge of an unspoiled stretch of beach on the Yucatan Peninsula, 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 Maroma Resort & Spa’s talcum, powder-like white-sand beach, which has been recognized as the “World’s Best Beach” by the Travel Channel. Located approximately 10 minutes by car from Playa del Carmen, Maroma is a Yucatan 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. Stretching 81 miles, the Riviera Maya begins 11 miles south of the Cancun International Airport in Puerto Morelos, and extends to Felipe Carillo Puerto, a small town near the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. A driver from Maroma Resort & Spa meets all guests at the airport and transports them to the hotel. Maroma Resort & Spa’s authentic Maya sensibility is evident throughout.

The Maroma Resort & Spa 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 100 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 Maroma Resort & Spa offers 65 rustically luxurious rooms. All guestrooms offer ocean or garden views, original art by resident artist Bertrand Castelli, hand-loomed bedding and rugs, private terraces with sofas and or double hammocks, bamboo shutters, telephone, in-room safes, and CD players. Bathrooms are resplendent with toiletries and feature oversized tubs, hand-made and adorned with Mexican tiles, no two are alike.

Hand built by Mayan masons, El Restaurante reflects the homemade hospitality of Maroma Reosrt & Spa. Offering casually elegant surroundings complemented by original oil paintings by resident artist Bertrand Castelli; indoor and outdoor seating provide spectacular views of the white sand beach, which was named “The Best Beach in the World” by the Travel Channel. Offering all day dining the restaurant is renowned for their breakfasts, which feature an abundance of fresh fruits, pastries and regional specialties. For lunch chef serves Yucatan inspired cuisine including guacamole made table-side, Yucatan lime soup and cochinita pibil, a traditional Maya pork dish. El Sol at Maroma Resort & Spa is set in a magical environment that was built based on sacred Maya geometry that features arched ceilings and breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and brings to the table the two culinary world’s of Yucatan: Maya and Creole Cuisine.

Kinan at Maroma Resort & Spa is often referred to as the individual inner energy. Combining Zen and Maya concepts, the spa offers a full range of spa services in unique environments ranging from treatment rooms with private gardens, outdoor pavilion rooms in the Zen Garden and a rooftop tower treatment room with 360-degree views taking in the ocean and jungle. Kinan Spa also features a steam bath and saunas with cold plunge pools. These additional services complement the traditional Maya Temazcal (the spiritual Maya sweat lodge) that is currently offered. The 560-square-foot Wellness Center located adjacent to the Spa features a variety of Technogym equipment. The Wellness center features floor to ceiling views of the jungle and surrounding gardens. In addition to personal training, the center also offers spinning classes and yoga at a roof top palapa.

Beautiful, Private, Peaceful, perfect honeymoon..
We spent 3 nights at Maroma Resort for our honeymoon. The resort was breathtakingly beautiful, and the staff was the most gracious and warm we have ever met. We told our travel advisor that we were looking for a spot which was private and peaceful, and they found just the place for us. Maroma was a very relaxed retreat resort that was quite different from any other resort in Cancun. We booked a Charming Garden View Room at the Virtuoso rate and we got an upgrade to an Ocean View room. The room had a nice sized, beautiful bed and an enormous bathroom. The bed was decorated with a lovely floral arrangement and the bathroom was filled with homemade soaps. Our bedroom did not have a TV, and it seemed like none of the guest rooms at Maroma had a TV for guest relaxation, but we did have an iPod player and wireless internet. We planned to do all kinds of activities during our honeymoon, and we ended up going on a jungle trip and snorkeling. The jungle trip was fun, and this is something I would like to do again, but I wouldn’t recommend this activity for a couple who are looking for a romantic mood. Honestly for a couple, we highly recommend the romantic beach dinner and tequila tasting at the bar. Their tequila tasting was fantastic. We both love to eat, but we never expected the food to be as good as it was. All of the ingredients were fresh, local and perfectly prepared. Most nights we had lots of sea food, which just melted in my mouth. Breakfast is complimentary every morning, whether in-room or in the dining room, as is the coffee service. Again, while every bit of food we ate at Maroma was amazing, we both agreed that breakfast was our favorite. We had one 30 minute body relaxing massage, which was one of the Virtuoso amenities that made us feel like we were in heaven. I can't imagine what the 80 minute massage would have been like. Our therapists started with a foot massage then moved to a full body massage. I have never experienced anything like this. The spa experience was amazing. Just standing in the entryway and looking into the facility was relaxing. The water was the color of a coke bottle and felt like a bath. We would return to our room and find lit candles everywhere and homemade cookies. The beautiful beach setting with the candles and ocean breeze was heavenly. The beach is long, and most of the time we both enjoyed walking down it for miles before sunset. Everything about Maroma Resort was absolutely amazing. We were called by our names for the duration of our stay and treated like we were the only guests on the property. We got the complimentary transfer service to and from the airport to avoid any hassles, and it was truly paradise. We miss Maroma already.
