Rendering of the Capella Bahia Maroma
The Riviera Maya continues to experience a booming hotel scene.
Luxurious new properties open monthly, it seems, and construction
has begun on even more lavish lodgings. Here’s an overview of the
Capella Bahia Maroma is scheduled to debut in
winter 2008-2009 with 82 suites in villas opening out directly to
the Caribbean; a private, world-class golf course; an Auriga spa;
and gourmet restaurants all set on 254 secluded acres.
El Dorado Maroma is Karisma’s sixth gourmet
all-inclusive in the Riviera Maya. The intimate 72-suite (some with
infinity pools) hotel opened in December on one of the area’s most
beautiful beaches. Rates start at $213 per person.
Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya officially
opened in December. It is now accepting reservations for its 128
guestrooms in oversized villas with private terraces or gardens,
secluded garden bathrooms and exotic wood and stone design. The
opening package, which is good until April 30, includes a
complimentary fourth night when agents reserve three consecutive
Rosewood Mayakoba is celebrating its opening
with 50 percent discounts on published rates through February. The
Sense spa won’t open until March, but the suites with plunge pools
and sunken tubs have glass doors receding into angular walls,
giving guests the sense of living outdoors (with all the necessary
high-tech amenities, of course).
