After extensive renovations, Maroma, a Belmond Hotel has recently reopened. Set between the tropical jungle and a pristine white sandy beach, the 72-room hotel is located just over 30 minutes south of the Cancun airport but a world away from what one typically thinks of when Cancun is mentioned. Originally built as a family home in the 1970s, over the years the site has been expanded, and it has recently been recreated with the intention of paying homage to the Mayan culture. Guests can enjoy the beach or snorkel in nearby reefs, receive nature-focused treatments at the spa, and swim in the cenote-inspired pool. Biking through the jungle and learning about traditional food and spirits from the resort’s culinary team are other options while at night, astronomers teach guests about the constellations, as mapped by the ancient residents of this beautiful area.
