Enjoying a privileged location between acres of lush jungle and the dazzling white sand beach of Punta Maroma, Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, is a charming, boutique-style property - there are just 63 bedrooms and suites – and is a haven for lovers of nature. Typically Mexican, the hotel was originally designed by an architect as his own winter, hacienda retreat. The thatched roof buildings are white-washed, and hand painted tiles and local art work add welcome splashes of colour.
The pathways and gardens, which lead directly on to the stunningly beautiful Punta Maroma beach, are draped with colourful plants and flowers. Iguanas are a regular sight on the pristine lawns shaded by hibiscus, palms and dramatic sea-grape trees. Stripe-tailed coati, as agile as squirrels, climb, and play, in the lush, jungle vegetation. Further colour is added in the form of the vibrant feathers of Adelita, the hotel’s resident parrot.
Guest bedrooms and suites are reached via garden paths and stairways. Garden view rooms afford the most privacy, many having hammocks on their balcony or private terrace. For pristine ocean views, the beachside one bedroom suites are hard to beat. They feature four-poster beds, plunge pool, outdoor shower, hammock, and a spa palapa: a thatched hut.
Farm-to-table grilled specialties are a feature of El Sol Restaurant, as well as sweeping views of the bay. El Restaurante serves more traditional Mexican fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where the outside terrace overlooks the beach. There is one beachfront bar, Freddy's bar, where you can enjoy tequila tasting at sunset and La Cantina, a weekly gastronomic experience to savor Mexican botanas, mezcal, and handcrafted beers.
There are no fewer than three swimming pools; the one which is reserved for adults is close to the ocean. The main, family friendly pool, is lagoon style and set in a tree-lined courtyard. The Kinan Spa has a well-deserved reputation for excellence. Choose from healing mud baths, four handed massages, or a traditional Mayan steam bath: temazcal. Early morning yoga sessions are a great start to the day in the peaceful surroundings of the gardens. There are two tennis courts, a fitness centre and complimentary bicycle hire.
Although there is no formal children’s club, younger family members are catered for by way of a comprehensively equipped welcome pack – float, swimming goggles, kaftan and slipper - a games centre, and an informal programme of events aimed at a younger audience each afternoon.
A holiday at Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is a masterclass in relaxation. In the unlikely event that you tire of the peace and quiet, the main resort of Playa del Carmen is a 30 minute drive away. The visit-worthy ancient Mayan sites of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza are less than two hours way.
