Riviera Maya, Mexico
AT A GLANCE
Stretching beside the worldÕs second largest coral reef, the Riviera Maya features glistening beaches, lush jungles, ancient ruins and bohemian playgrounds. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea offer a variety of nautical activities, including fishing, which attracts thousands of visitors a year. Riviera Maya has many underwater rivers, lagoons and Òcenotes,Ó formed by water filtering through the limestone, that provide interesting options for diving. Throughout the jungle are locations that provide rental equipment, guides and lessons for cave diving.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba presents a rare opportunity to own at Mayakoba ResortÕs first real estate offering in the Western Hemisphere. Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers for sale, on a limited basis, 50 of the resortÕs 132 luxury villas and terrace residences. The community, which recently won an Americas Property Award in the category of development for Mexico, features indigenous building tradition while blending with the local plant and marine life.
Each masterfully designed one- to three- bedroom villa and terrace residence has spaces for outdoor bathtubs and showers, as well as sun decks with private pools located beside sea, mangroves and manicured fairways.
The secluded Mayakoba Resort complex, the vision of internationally-recognized Spanish developers OHL, is a private development spanning over a mile of beachfront along the Caribbean Sea on the Riviera Maya. Banyan Tree Mayakoba will join five other unique resort residences Ð including Rosewood Mayakoba, Fairmont Mayakoba, Viceroy Mayakoba and one other resort yet to be disclosed – in this nature preserve coastline community. Mayakoba offers residents luxury spas and fitness centers, world-class cuisine at 15 dining establishments, a PGA-rated championship El Camale—n Greg Norman Golf Course, as well as arts and entertainment of the Riviera Maya region.
OHL purchased the current 600-acre nature preserve nearly 15 years ago and has since been working with environmentalists to develop a forward-thinking, sustainable resort community. Mayakoba has made a concerted effort to preserve the diverse ecological environment of three eco-systems: beach, lagoon and mangrove jungle.
Owners at Banyan Tree Residences Mayakoba have the option to participate in the rental program, which allows owners, when they are not occupying their unit, to rent it out as part of the hotelÕs room inventory.
