About Banyan Tree Mayakoba


In days gone by, banyan trees provided shade and shelter to weary travelers. Banyan Tree hotels and resorts symbolize the comfort and respite provided by nature, enhanced by elegance, sophistication and uncompromised luxury. Our philosophy is founded on rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul, a truly sanctuary for the senses.


For centuries the epicenter of one the most flourishing civilizations in human history and stretched along the translucent Caribbean Sea in the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula, rests the multicultural and hippie-chic Riviera Maya. Extending from the Cancun International Airport to Playa del Carmen and down to the village of Tulum, the Riviera Maya is a magical place well known for its natural diversity, historical vestiges, rich culture and the unparalleled warmth of its people.


Mayakoba, meaning village over the water, is internationally-recognized as one of the most exclusive resort communities in Mexico and home to three world-class resorts and the only PGA Championship golf course in Latin America. Nestled along the edge of the lush and exotic jungle, Banyan Tree Mayakoba flawlessly blends luxury, nature and serenity within an extraordinary fusion of Mexican culture and Asian hospitality.
