Fairmont Mayakoba

Riviera Maya, Mexico

Sleek, white lounge chairs and shady umbrellas border this extensive pool, one of 5 at the beachfront Fairmont Mayakoba in Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. The Caribbean resort has 401 tropical chic rooms, many of which have soaking tubs, dark-wood shutters and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook long white-sand shores or the cenote, a freshwater lagoon framed by limestone walls. Golf lovers can tee off at the Mayakoba's Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón course, which hosts the only PGA tour event outside of Canada and the US.
