Bringing you that magnificent Mayan magic, straight from the beautiful Belmond's picturesque playa.
Days spent ocean or poolside and nights strolling through dramatic gardens filled with lush palms, parrots and butterflies... the romantic undercurrent of this resort is an elegantly evident setting for all wonderfully wed events.
The Lowdown Venue Setting
Beyond towering coconut palms, Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is a 63-room, Mexican resort reminiscent of a grand hacienda—chalk white set against a 200-acre jungle—along one of the world’s finest beaches. A Mayan mystique surrounds this natural paradise. Belmond Maroma is bushy palapas and authentic Mexican flavors. Large swimming pools stay hushed like secrets behind lush gardens. A reverence for pure escapism and timeless hospitality draws guests from the world over. It’s a Mexican hideaway courageously rooted in the Yucatan’s rich culture and lived out every day as a tribute to the Mayan gods.
Bordered by the world´s second longest barrier reef, providing world-class SCUBA and snorkeling. The reef provides safe sea bathing in all weather conditions and protects Belmond Maroma´s talcum powder-like white sand beach, which has been recognized as the “World´s Best Beach” by the Travel Channel.
Belmond Maroma´s authentic Maya sensibility is evident throughout. The resort is made up of several white stucco buildings, two or three stories in height each with thatched roof terraces to maximize views and privacy. Buildings are joined by winding stone pathways lined with lush plantings, which are lit by over 1000 candles and torches each evening.
Each building has been crafted by hand by the same family of Maya masons and purposefully aligned to the stars to ensure proper energy flow so that mind, body and spirit are at peace. Interiors feature curved lines, indigenous building products, and windows that capture sunbeams; oversized tubs adorned with Mexican tiles, and carved lighting niches that define sensuality.
Kinan [pronounced - keynan] is Maya for “the source of life”. Similar to the Asian concept of Chi, Kinan it is often referred to as the individual inner energy. Combining Zen and Maya concepts, the spa offers a full range of spa services in unique environments ranging from treatment rooms with private gardens, outdoor pavilion rooms in the Zen Garden and a rooftop tower treatment room with 360-degree views taking in the ocean and jungle.
Kinan Spa also features a steam bath and saunas with cold plunge pools. These additional services complement the traditional Maya Temazcal (the spiritual Maya sweat lodge) that is currently offered.
The 560-square-foot Wellness Center located adjacent to the Spa features a variety of Technogym equipment, including: two treadmills, a computerized stationary bike, a step machine/elliptical runner, cable, lat and leg extension machines, free weights and a lounge and stretching area. The Wellness center features floor to ceiling views of the jungle and surrounding gardens. In addition to personal training, the center also offers spinning classes and yoga at a rooftop palapa.
Theater Violoncello, a private meeting theater that seats up to 50, is ideal for small group functions and meetings and provides high-speed internet access as well as projection screen capabilities. In addition, Belmond Maroma´s abundance of outdoor space provides numerous al-fresco options for gatherings by the pool, under palm trees or on the white sand beach. The Sales team can arrange for all ground transportation, excursions, banquets and special events as well as all the extras from Mariachi bands to fireworks. Fees
