Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya, a Precious Gem Amidst a Tropical Jungle, Reopens to Delight Travel Enthusiasts


Belmond continues to redefine the realm of extraordinary luxury travel, unveiling a truly distinctive experience with the reopening of Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya. Maroma emerges with a renewed essence, deeply rooted in Mayan design, traditions, and culture. Its 72 rooms, suites, and villas have been meticulously transformed, merging indigenous materials and classical motifs.

The reimagined Maroma, a testimony to Belmond's unmatched ingenuity, pays homage to Mexican artistry and design. Collaborating with revered design studio Tara Bernerd & Partners, the revival of the hotel exudes Mexican heritage and local craftsmanship. The furnishings and decorations have been thoughtfully curated exclusively for Maroma. A remarkable 80% of the furnishings are handcrafted in Mexico: master ceramicist José Noé Suro meticulously crafted over 700,000 hand-painted Jalisco clay tiles for the guest accommodations, while Henequen Textiles contributed rugs woven from hemp-like material. Evoking an ambiance of refined and relaxed hacienda-style living, Maroma envelops guests in an intimate atmosphere, inviting them to savor intricate elements like handwoven textiles from Oaxaca, tiles from Guadalajara, and traditional Yucatan doors.

Maroma's culinary landscape also takes a bow, showcasing four distinct dining destinations. Partnering with Michelin-starred Australian chef Curtis Stone, Belmond unveils the gastronomic haven, Woodend by Curtis Stone. Harmonizing sea and jungle influences, the menu honors local ingredients through seasonal dishes. The Yucatán Peninsula comes alive in dishes that accentuate shrimp, oysters, fish, and plant-based options. Casa Mayor, guided by Mexican-born Executive Chef Daniel Camacho, reveres Mexico's diverse culinary heritage. Bambuco and Freddy's Bar both pay homage to the lush natural surroundings.

Continuing its partnership with Guerlain, the reborn Maroma introduces the Maroma Spa by Guerlain, the Maison's first venture in Latin America, now housed in a biophilic sanctuary. This holistic haven of well-being, a sanctuary for rejuvenation and spiritual exploration, offers nature-centric treatments and immersive guest encounters. Healing rituals draw inspiration from nature's elements, ancient customs, and the revered Melipona bee of the Mayan culture. The Bee Healing Ritual, an acclaimed honey-based treatment known for its potent healing qualities, draws from Guerlain's distinguished Abeille Royale collection.

In a testament to its commitment to the community and environment, Maroma initiates sustainable practices both within its premises and the wider community.

Deeply ingrained in the essence of the Yucatán, Maroma enters a new era as the pulsating heart of the Riviera Maya.
