Reconnect in nature with the family this Easter, at Andaz Mayakoba
Located in a verdant tropical enclave of lagoons, jungles and beaches along the Riviera Maya, lies Andaz Mayakoba, the ideal destination for families seeking a sunny escape this Easter. Arriving via electric boat, guests will find themselves in a natural paradise, to experience total relaxation and rejuvenation. With crystal clear azure waters and immaculate white sand beaches just steps away, Andaz Mayakoba is a haven for families to unwind and reconnect, in a totally safe setting. The resort is offering families a significant 20% off on bookings this Easter, with a fifth night free of charge if four nights are booked, per person.
Mayakoba encompasses 595 acres of pristine mangrove and oceanfront and is home to world-class cuisine, wellness, golf and sporting facilities, all of which have been designed to protect and enhance the native landscape and ecosystems. It is a leading area of conservation and sustainability, having been awarded Mexico’s highest-level certification in environmental performance for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism Development. Initiatives include rehabilitation of the coral reefs, creating new barriers and life along the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – the second-largest coral reef in the world. Since Mayakoba became a protected area, biodiversity has grown by over 500%, and is now home to over 200 species of wildlife.
Private trips on the Mayakoba Yacht allow families to take to the seas and experience the beautiful Caribbean waters from a closer perspective, with the chance to spot some local wildlife including turtles and dolphins whilst delighting in fresh Mexican specialties and authentic dishes on board. Alternatively, the Andaz Mayakoba eco-cruise awaits, where guests may cruise through the resort’s surrounding lagoons in the picturesque Andaz boat, complete with canapes onboard for an immersive experience of Mexican nature through the flora and fauna.
For snorkel and scuba-diving enthusiasts, Spring is the very best time to visit, as the waters are at their clearest, revealing the wonders of Mayakoba’s marine life. The Mayakoba Dive Centre provides an unparalleled opportunity for families to learn or advance their scuba diving skills all together and marvel at the beauty of the Riviera Maya through an exhilarating diving session. Andaz Mayakoba’s helpful and knowledgeable concierge team will be happy to organise or assist in all activity bookings, ensuring nothing is too much trouble for guests.
April along the Riviera Maya sees warm, sunshine-filled days with a perfect accompanying light breeze to recharge in. Temperatures remain around 27C in the day time and balmy evenings provide the ideal setting for an al-fresco dinner in Andaz Mayakoba’s latest restaurant, the award- winning Sotavento, where guests may enjoy an exquisitely fresh Mediterranean inspired menu using locally sourced ingredients under the stars, with the sand between their toes. Sotavento acts as both a sun-soaked daytime venue as well as a memorable evening experience, enhanced with exceptional sunsets, live entertainment all in a beautiful setting adorned with soft overhead fairy lights.
With Easter possibly being the country’s second largest festival after Dia de los Muertos, the sights, sounds, colours and tastes of Mexico and the Riviera Maya will bring the senses alive for guests to the area this Spring. Attend an Easter Sunday mass service in Mayakoba’s enchanting El Pueblito chapel, beautifully decorated for the religious festival. Andaz Mayakoba will be offering guests the chance to immerse themselves in the authentic flavours of Easter in Mexico with a specialty Easter brunch at Beach Lawn. The resort’s signature restaurant, Casa Amate, has also launched a brand-new menu, featuring a vibrant combination of Mexican and Latin American dishes to tempt the taste buds.
For younger guests, the KIMBO Kid’s club is a hub of excitement where activities including storytelling, cooking classes, cenote excursions, bike rides and more will thrill and entertain. While children play, parents seeking some rest and recuperation may look to the resort’s Naum Wellness & Spa centre – a sanctuary of authentic Mayan wellness practices, offering personalised treatments as well as sessions with the resort’s expert Shaman.
A jam-packed weekly activities programme is available all year round at Andaz Mayakoba, and ensures there is something for everybody, from heart-racing to more therapeutic pursuits. Become a master of stand-up paddle board yoga for a unique twist to the traditional, or enjoy classes learning the art to making the perfect guacamole, aguachille or margarita.
Andaz Mayakoba provides families time and space to play and recharge, sending everyone home at the end of the holiday feeling healthy, reconnected and finally free of the seemingly endless British winter.
