Exceeding Expectations... Again!
Mandarin Oriental

Posted: Apr. 3rd, 2007  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Resorts: If luxury is your style, impeccable service is your desire, and vibrant memories are what you want to create, then you must be one of the first to step foot on the incredible Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya property opening its doors in the fall of 2007. Set on the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Riviera Maya region has become the most sought after luxury destination this year, and with a fantastic reputation for exceeding expectations, the Mandarin Oriental is the obvious choice for the best in luxury accommodations.

One hundred and twenty eight airy bungalow villas are nestled among winding pathways, each one stylized with traditional Asian influences and modern Mexican art. The villas lay claim to a courtyard with hammocks for an afternoon siesta and private garden bathrooms with stone bathtubs and rain showers. The Grand Villas offer a private plunge pool, while The Villa Presidencial - a villa over 3,500 square feet, and the "grand-daddy" of all suites - offers a private butler and chef.

At the center of the resort sits Ambar, a fine dining restaurant overlooking the spectacular views of a Cenote (a freshwater lake sacred to the ancient Mayan), a true sanctuary for peace and relaxation. Guests can enjoy smooth jazz and a cigar at the bar and lounge that is situated above the lagoon, or kick their shoes off to revel in the spectacular sunset from the Beachfront Restaurant and Bar. A Spa Café also offers light, healthy fare.

For those who seek a true holistic experience, professional instruction in Yoga and Pilates is available, as well as unique water therapies in a Watsu pool, and "Time Rituals" - uniquely personalized spa services. Eleven treatment rooms are available to offer a full range of distinctive therapies, and an amethyst crystal steam room offers the perfect serene environment to clear your senses, and to melt your stresses away.

The enchanting Riviera Maya coastline reaches from Cancun to Tulum, and is abundant with tropical backdrops, endless white-powder beaches and natural wonders. The region offers an eco-friendly underwater kingdom of coral with colorful displays of tropical fish, perfect for snorkeling, and pristine beaches with protected turtles. Within a short distance from the resort, guests can indulge in Mexican cuisine and culture, and the nightlife of cosmopolitan Playa del Carmen. Adventures are just a stones throw away where guests can uncover the ancient splendor of the Mayan pyramids in Chitzen-Itza, Coba and Tulum, go scuba diving for a day in the turquoise waters of the Yucatan Peninsula, go horseback riding through lush, tropical jungle, or test skills while deep-sea fishing for marlin.
