A small, luxurious Belmond hotel away from the crowds on a picture-perfect Caribbean beach.

A special place just right for a special occasion, Maroma, A Belmond Hotel was lovingly created as an exclusive hideaway on a private estate on the Riviera Maya. This beautiful service-orientated accommodation, has been fully refurbished and shines as brightly as ever as one of the stars of the luxury Belmond brand.

Originally a coconut plantation, the property has a remote feel being backed by tropical forest, away from the mega-developments elsewhere along the Riviera Maya yet only 20 minutes or so from Playa del Carmen. It faces a long, sweeping crescent of powdery-white sands lapped by glass-clear water. The exterior is inspired by Moorish architecture and features dazzling white walls and domes. Step out from your polished wood or gleaming tiled floor onto the beach or tropical gardens. The restaurants serve sustainably-sourced Mexican and international dishes and there's an impressive cocktail and mezcal menu for sundowners.

Wellness is a focus at Belmond Maroma. The comprehensive spa - the first by Guerlain in Latin America - offers a range of treatments including aromatherapy and Mayan-themed massages, or you can opt for bee therapy at the hotel's Meliponia bee sanctuary and meditation in the sea. Other facilities include three pools and a Temazcal. You can snorkel off the beach or take a boat out to the reef, part of the second longest in the world. Belmond Maroma is perfect for a romantic break, yet at the same time it is very inclusive and family friendly. There is none of the corporate feel of some top-of-the-range hotels – you are definitely in Mexico, and among friends.
