Maroma Resort & Spa
Style White of appeal
Setting Remote Riviera shores
Perfectly plunked between sea and jungle, Maroma Hotel & Spa in the Riviera Maya is a whitewashed lesson in the Mexican ideal. Study up on local mezcals at the beachfront cantina, learn traditional Mayan healing techniques at the spectacular spa, take to the kitchen of one of the two restaurants to learn about local herbs and fish or become an ace at relaxing by the Caribbean Sea, beneath a thatch-roof palapa.

Food and drink at Maroma Resort & Spa
There are two, and both serve some of the region's best food. El Sol is the more upscale option, with Mexican-Mediterranean fusion. The kitchen serves tapas- and full-size options, with a focus on local fish and spices. Its massive wine cellar ensures a perfect beverage pairing for each course. The more casual El Restaurante serves Mexican breakfast, lunch and dinner items on the terrace or in the dining room with sweeping sea views. The kitchen's specialties include lobster enchiladas, duck tacos and seafood pozole.
- Dress code Beach chic: kaftans, linen trousers and nice sandals will suit perfectly.
- Top table At El Sol, request a table near the windows to look out at the terrace. The Restaurante’s best tables are at its south end, opposite the sea.
- Last orders Freddy’s serves from 10am until 10pm. The Restaurante serves each day from 7am until 10.30pm; El Sol serves dinner from 7pm until 11pm.
- Room service A selection of Mexican classics, salads, soups and American fare is available 24 hours a day.
Freddy’s Tequila & Ceviche bar is a waterfront beach hut serving light fare and potent drinks, made from over 120 different tequilas and mezcals. Test your tolerance with the Seven Blocks, which is named for the length most people people who order it can walk before blacking out. Pair cocktails with any of the six ceviches, which change frequently and are prepared to order in front of guests. The more casual La Cantina pours homemade beer, offers guided tequila tastings and hosts a bi-weekly home-style Mexican dinner.

Our favourite rooms
Spring for a Master Suite, which can look out at the ocean or gardens, and has a private balcony, a soaking tub and extra space. The Oceanfront One Bedroom Suite has the best setup, with a four-poster bed, floor-to-ceiling views, a spa palapa, plunge pool on a private terace, outdoor shower and pristine ocean view. For the most privacy, opt for one of the garden-view rooms.
The sun is extremely strong on the beach, so bring armour or stop by the thatch-roofed boutique for anything you might forget, including cover-ups, sunscreen, sunglasses and hats, along with pottery and other souvenirs.
Kinan Spa is exceptional. Set in the jungle, the spa uses top-of-the-line products in treatments that are native to the region, including a temazcal, or traditional Mayan steam bath. It also has a mud bar with four different types of healing muds for guests to apply before the sauna or steam room. The spa offers early morning yoga with ocean views, and a boot camp with TRX, interval training and plyometrics.
