M is for marvelous. Our Swedish sales manager Ulrika Thelander has travelled around the world to many fabulous destinations but only recently visited Mexico. Now she reports:
“I am impressed! I now have three favorite M destinations – Maldives, Mauritius & Mexico.”
Her first port of call was Rosewood Mayakoba, which shares a beautiful private nature reserve of waterways and mangroves with Banyan Tree Mayakoba, along with a championship golf course and..
|... gorgeous white sand beaches|
A short drive north of holiday playground Playa del Carmen you enter this lush protected area through huge gates. We let her snapshots tell some of the story:
|If you arrive in the daytime you start your stay|
with a boat ride. Check-in is done in your suite.
A nice way to start your holiday!
Ulrika’s favourite accommodations at Rosewood Mayakoba were:
|...the beachfront suite|
|Ulrika's own Ocean Suite number 505|
Ocean Suite 505 has a perfect location not far away from the Beach Restaurant and communal pool with a stunning view from your terrace with private pool. All suites have a private pool – some smaller than others.
She can also recommend the smallest category Lagoon Studio suite, which faces the water/lakes that surround the hotel.
|Your place to relax by the lagoon|
There are 128 suites in total – and each one has a heated plunge pool outdoor deck and boat dock, Bose sound system, CD/DVD player and iPod docking.
Bicycles are free to rent during your stay and are available for teenagers as well. There is a small kids club just by the beachside pool...

The hotel share tennis courts with the other hotels nearby but has a beautiful Spa and gym on a private island where no children under 13 are allowed. (Bridge crossing)
|The spa retreat|
|And the breakfasts are truly tropical.|
And the service at this hotel is superb! You really feel special everywhere. By the pool they serve you free water bottles in ice-buckets, small canapés & smoothies during the day, and of course the Beach/pool boys make up your sun chair. They even come around cleaning your glasses and give you a little head massage while you wait for your glasses to be cleaned :)
"I would recommend this hotel to anybody who wants top service," says Ulrika.
