This year I turned FOURTY years old and all I wanted to do was celebrate somewhere tropical. I chose to stay at the Fairmont Mayakoba in Riviera Maya and I am soo happy I did. I needed to bring in the milestone year spending my time totally relaxed and this resort did not disappoint!
I’ve been to Mexico a few times and although I love this country, I’ve been a little disappointed by my hotel stay in the past. Not this time. This hotel is nestled inside an ecological dream where you are surrounded by lush greenery and wildlife. To get around, you have the option to go on a golf cart ride, bicycle, or even better…just walk!
One of my most favorite parts of this trip was spending some restful time at the Willow Stream Spa. I seriously didn’t want to leave. I was welcomed by the spa staff upon entering and was walked into the locker room, which is an amazing space in itself. The treatments were amazing and definitely a reason to return to this hotel.
I will plan to return to this hotel and location since I had a memorable experience. My very spacious room was tucked away with the view of the property’s lagoon. A NYC apartment could’ve fit in our bathroom! From the amazing staff, the excellent food, and the beautiful atmosphere, the Fairmont Mayakoba is a mystical experience I can’t wait to do again!
