Named "The Top Beach" on the Travel Channel's "World's 10 Best Beaches"


Quite possibly the best kept secret in Mexico, Maroma Resort is a hideaway that is intent on preserving the ecology of its many acres of fine white sand beach and jungle—all the while taking individual service and luxury to unprecedented heights.

Abundant gardens line the pathways, where you can admire parrots, peacocks, ducks, iguanas, and wild birds. The pathways are lit by over 100 candles or torches by nightfall, creating a romantic and peaceful atmosphere. The beach is wide and flawless and is bordered by the second longest barrier reef in the world.

Each building has been crafted by hand by the same family of Mayan masons and purposefully aligned to the stars to ensure proper energy flow so that mind, body, and spirit are at peace. Your deluxe room is exquisitely furnished with indigenous art and handcrafted furnishings to beautifully evoke Mexican living. The sumptuous bathroom suites, king-size beds, and outdoor terrace complete the experience.
