Travel by Design - Mayakoba

You'll have to bear with me because this week's Travel by Design is another Mexican hotel, I just couldn't resist sharing this one.

In the area around Playa del Carmen, the hotels are all about their entrances.  While we were in Mexico we kept driving by Mayakoba, which had an amazing entrance. This of course sparked my interest so when we got back to the states I googled it. Turns out, it's not just the entrance that is amazing.

The resort is built around mangroves and a private lagoon. Each room has a private plunge pool and roof deck. The room design is modern but built with natural materials like limestone and wood to make it look like it is part of the landscape.  The resort is absolutely breathtaking.
