We have used the services of Audley Travel three times and were due to go to Malaysia in July 2021....

The sumptuous rooms emanate tradition in their décor with thatched roofs and whitewashed walls. All the rooms are individually decorated with hand painted tiles, soft wool rugs, original art and dark wood furniture. There is a choice of either a king sized or two twin beds accommodating up to two guests, either adults or children. Each room has a private terrace and hammock to relax in with garden or ocean views. As the hotel draws on elements of connection to nature there are no TVs in any of the rooms.
The suites have a separate living area, king-size beds and luxury sunken bathtub. Junior suites sleep two guests and Master suites can accommodate either three adults or two adults and two children.
The Belmond Maroma sits right on the shore of the white sands of Playa Maroma, flanked by lush jungle and turquoise water. Cancun airport is just 40 km away and if you are looking to explore or shop, Playa del Carmen is about 15 minutes away and costs approx. $20 in a taxi. The resort is in the perfect place to experience some of Mexico’s great heritage sites, mysterious underwater cenotes and poolside relaxation.
Food and drink
The aptly named El Ristorante, takes a modern approach on traditional Mexican cuisine serving guests an alfresco beachside breakfast and handmade traditional light lunches and candlelit romantic dinners on the sand.
El Sol is the hotel’s laid back ocean grill, taking flavours from the shores of the Caribbean Sea. Locally caught seafood and freshly grilled meat are served with perfectly matched wines from the award-winning cellar.
For a relaxed beachside cocktail or an apéritif on the sand, guests can take a stroll down to Freddy’s and the talented bartenders will be able to rustle up a refreshing drink or two. There are a few exceptional dining experiences to be had at the Belmond Maroma, such as a dinner with tequila pairings to learn more about the tastes and creation of the local spirit, a K'áa'k night where a sumptuous buffet of flame grilled fish and meat is served, or intimate private dining in a location of your choosing.
Facilities and activities
The Kinan spa onsite, offers private treatment rooms where guests can indulge in a spa treatment using indigenous botanicals and natural ingredients, such as the honey from the local Melponia bees. Attached to the spa is the Yoga and Wellness retreat for guests to harmonise both mind and body.
Scuba diving, sport fishing, kayaking, parasailing, sailing or golf can also be arranged. There are also two tennis courts, a fitness centre, and the offer of a 45-minute complimentary bike tour through the resort's jungle to learn more about the natural wonders.
The hotel can organise activities in the local area with highlights being cenote snorkelling, a trip to the Mayan ruins or the Sian Ka’an Biosphere.
A beautiful hotel with a fabulous location, though some of the rooms are in need of updating. From time to time, service in the restaurants can be variable and food and drinks are definitely on the more expensive side at this property.
