Maroma Belmond Hotel in Riviera Maya

Maroma Belmond luxury resort hotel

“Pure escapism with a touch of Mayan magic.”


Maroma, Belmond Hotel in Riviera Maya is a peaceful jewel hidden by dense green foliage and enormous coconut trees, with an inconspicuous, hidden entrance. After a brief drive through a lush forest, visitors arrive at a luxurious colonial-style hacienda with immaculately kept grounds encircling a pool.

A homemade margarita mixed with a liquor of sweet honey accords greets your entrance warmly, plus a glimpse of the pearlescent beach and vast blue expanse well beyond that make your arrival exceptionally delightful.

The opulent resort is situated on a stunning beach bordered by lush greenery, halfway between occasionally-touristy Cancun and tranquil Tulum.


What to Do in Maroma


Kinan Spa

The Kinan Spa is a genuine treasure among health retreats, located amidst floral gardens and 200 acres of lush green forests, so near to the Caribbean, you can taste the breeze. It is a must-try while you stay at the Maroma Belmond Resort & Spa. The spa’s stunning surroundings are an excellent addition to therapies that draw on the knowledge and customs of the Maya people, creating a special fusion of nature and tradition.

The Kinan Spa’s seaside Temezcal ceremony should do the trick for anyone seeking to rebalance their spirits. A Mayan shaman will guide you through this unusual meditation session while you breathe in the aromatic vapor and listen to the vibrations of traditional drums and splashing waves.

The ever-energetic guests won’t have any difficulty finding their favorite excursion, thanks to yoga retreats, meditation classes, a 560-square-foot fitness facility, and two tennis courts that abound Belmond Maroma.

Exciting Experiences

The resort’s concierge can schedule sailing and yachting tours, golf outings, and snorkeling trips to the area’s stunning cenotes, and wading in the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Make the most of the chance to swim with gentle whale sharks off Contoy Island during the months of May up until September. During this time, the Sian Ka’an Biopshere Reserve also offers guests a rare glimpse into the wild turtles laying their eggs.

Experience the Mayan historical riches through the prism of Belmond’s renowned luxury; a helicopter trip to Chichén Itza sweeps guests off to the historic ruins from the seashore.

In the evening, get a glimpse of Mexico’s nightlife culture by exploring the neighborhood around the hotel. Playa del Carmen, a neighboring resort city, boasts cobblestone streets, top-notch boutiques, and trendy nightclubs and restaurants.
