Rosewood Mayakoba Unveils 20 Million Dollar Transformation

Mexico, Riviera Maya. January 23, 2020

A new destination for wellness and luxury emerges amidst the emerald jungle and white sand beaches of Riviera Maya with the unveiling of Rosewood Mayakoba, fresh from a total transformation of its 129 on-property suites, introduction of eight dedicated Wellness Suites, fully enhanced three- and four-bedroom Presidential Suites, and debut of Zapote, an innovative bar experience showcasing the deep culinary traditions of Mexico.

Following an investment of over $20 million, these extraordinarily reimagined accommodations and offerings reflect a fresh, modern take on Mexican craftsmanship, a holistic approach to wellness and interactive guest experience that the leading luxury resort exemplifies, ready for guests to enjoy by late 2019.

"Our goal in re-imagining the experience of Rosewood Mayakoba began by devoting ourselves to what makes the region so special: its people, history and natural environment. We challenged ourselves and our partners to find creative, inviting, and stunning ways to reflect and be inspired by local culture in all elements of the design," shared Daniel Scott, Managing Director and Regional Vice President of Rosewood Mayakoba. "We cannot wait for guests to experience this new environment and discover how it connects to their own journey and sense of escape." Spearheaded by New York-based design firm Bando x Seidel Meersseman, the enhanced suites celebrate the craftsmanship of Mexican artisans. To do so, Rosewood Mayakoba consulted with a local anthropologist, drawing inspiration from the past to create a contemporary present.

Continuing its support for the community, the suites will feature custom, modern furniture created with locally fabricated and sourced materials made in collaboration with artisans in the area. Mayan artistries such as pottery and embroidery are found in all suites, from embroidered pillows made with natural fibers to large Barro clay pots and woven benches made exclusively for the resort. Indigenous materials distinctive to the region such as lava stone and natural woods, like Parota, Cumaru and Rosa Morada, are also embodied in the modern furniture. Light tones are intentionally added to all of the resort's sun-bathed suites to complement the lush, verdant elements soaking up the natural light.

The beachfront suites are accented by warm clay tones while the lagoon suites encompass blue and green accents, drawing from the colors of the lagoon and surrounding jungle. Every suite has a private outdoor pool, creating a secluded and relaxed setting to rejuvenate in the tropical oasis. This restoration ties together Rosewood Mayakoba's overarching value of balance and respect for both the environment and local community, taking a holistic approach to sustainable luxury and responsible sourcing by weaving together sustainable design and execution to create a unique destination.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
