The 620-acre Riviera Maya master planned community, Mayakoba, is going into 2020 with a host of new products.
First is the VanDutch Yacht, available for rental whether guests want a two-hour snorkel trip or a full day with chef-catered meals. The yacht is equipped with Sublue underwater scooters and has two bedrooms, a galley kitchen and a shower/bathroom.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is unveiling a $50 million renovation later in the year, which will include an additional 40 rooms including six overwater villas with private pools, as well as 34 beachfront pool suites. The renovations will also include an expanded beach club with two larger oceanfront pools, an all-day dining oceanfront Mexican restaurant and seafood market, a new beachfront lounge and library, and a larger interactive Rangers Club for kids.
Fairmont Mayakoba will introduce its Ki Bar right along the beach. By day, the palapa is a bar and by night it is a specialty Korean barbecue restaurant.
