As the world gradually awakens to the allure of immersive travel experiences, a jewel nestled in the heart of a tropical jungle emerges as the epitome of opulent reconnection with nature. The much-awaited reopening of Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya, signals not only the rebirth of a luxury retreat but also a harmonious fusion of biophilic design and holistic wellness. This oasis invites travelers to embark on a journey where Mayan traditions, Mexican craftsmanship, and the first Guerlain Spa in Latin America unite in symphonic elegance.

Gentle waves lapping against the pristine shorelines and the whispering melodies of a verdant jungle create the backdrop for Maroma’s reimagined embrace of nature’s wonders.

Maroma’s transformation into a sanctuary that resonates with the essence of its surroundings is the result of meticulous craftsmanship and design. Collaborating with the world-renowned design studio Tara Bernerd & Partners, the hotel becomes a living canvas of Mexican heritage. Each of the 72 rooms, suites, and villas showcases a harmonious interplay of local materials, traditional patterns, and artisanal craftsmanship.

Gazing upon the intricate details, it becomes evident that Maroma is more than just a luxury hotel; it is an ode to the rich tapestry of Mexico’s culture. Delicate hand-painted tiles by ceramicist José Noé Suro grace the guestrooms, while Henequen Textiles contribute rugs woven from a hemplike material, infusing the spaces with authenticity. This celebration of indigenous artistry extends to the gastronomic experiences offered within the hotel’s embrace.

Four distinct dining destinations invite guests on a culinary journey that celebrates regional flavors. Woodend by Curtis Stone, a gastronomic restaurant born from a partnership with Michelin-star Australian chef Curtis Stone, marries sea and jungle inspirations. Local ingredients dictate the seasonal menu, offering a symphony of flavors celebrating the Yucatán Peninsula. Casa Mayor, guided by Executive Chef Daniel Camacho, explores the diverse culinary heritage of Mexico. Bambuco and Freddy’s Bar enhance the dining narrative by seamlessly blending with the lush natural surroundings.

Yet, Maroma’s allure reaches beyond its culinary offerings and artful design. The hotel continues its association with Guerlain, unveiling the Maroma Spa by Guerlain – the first in Latin America. Nestled within a biophilic space, this spa becomes a sacred realm of rejuvenation and wellness. Rooted in the healing energies of nature and Mayan traditions, the spa introduces guests to the Bee Healing Ritual, a homage to the revered Melipona bee and a reflection of Guerlain’s Abeille Royale collection. A testament to the marriage of luxury and sustainability, Maroma’s commitment to the environment and the local community is woven into its very fabric.

As the doors of Maroma swing open once more, the heart of the Riviera Maya beats with renewed vigor. This oasis stands not only as a testament to luxurious retreats but as a profound connection to the essence of Mexico, an embodiment of the tranquil symphony orchestrated by the natural world.
