Rosewood Mayakoba earned top honors as the “#1 Best Resort in Mexico,” as well as placed 32nd on the “Top 100 Hotels in the World” list. Banyan Tree Mayakoba andFairmont Mayakoba were also recognized as two of the best resorts in Mexico. Travel + Leisure readers selected the award recipients, casting their votes for the hotels, destinations, and companies that represent the travel elite.

“This is a great honor and we would like to thank our collective hotel guests and the savvy, knowledgeable readers of Travel + Leisure for the recognition,” said Agustin Sarasola, General Manager of OHL Desarrollos, the developer of Mayakoba. “To again have all three hotels ranked among the world’s best is a testament to the authenticity of the Mayakoba experience and the high caliber of our hotels, which continually strive to create the ultimate eco-luxury getaway for each guest.”

Located in the heart of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Mayakoba sits on 593 acres of ecologically diverse land dotted with lagoons, mangrove forests, cenotes, canals, and white sand beaches. Six miles of crystal clear waterways flow throughout the resort and lead to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. An eco-conscious development, Mayakoba has been recognized by both the United Nations World Tourism Organization and Rainforest Alliance as a world leader in sustainable tourism. The more than 148 acres of protected mangrove forests along the coastline provide an important habitat for more than 200 species of tropical flora and fauna, which guests can experience via private boat tour with a resort biologist or on the new Mayakoba Connection ferry and Nature Trail that connect all three hotels.

In its 18th year, Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards” are based on data collected from the magazine’s annual reader’s survey. Dedicated readers are queried on top destinations, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines and more to create a snapshot of the best travel experiences around the globe. Rankings are based on the quality of rooms, service, food and dining, location and overall value.

Full results are available in the August issue of the magazine and at
