Self-care reigns supreme at this Riviera Maya reverie, where a lush jungle getaway meets a lavish beachside sanctuary
There’s a distinct hush-hush feeling surrounding this thatched-roof paradise—Mexico-based Hamak Hotels group’s even more serene follow-up to their eco-conscious Yucatan resort just outside Merida. Rooms, envisioned by the acclaimed Mexican designer Paulina Moran, are stylishly minimal, decked in warm tropical woods, Xucun stone, and thoughtful details like en-suite pools, a retractable glass wall, and local palm weavings. Intimate amenities, like cabanas sprinkled across a 650-foot stretch of private beach and couple’s treatment cabins in the expansive spa (where indigenous inspired rituals and treatments are fueled by berries and herbs from the adjacent jungle), only add to the atmosphere. The verdant surroundings are essential to Bu’ul (the Mayan word for “beans”), the property’s contemporary Mexican restaurant, where the freestyle menu features house-baked breads and dishes that rotate depending on the catch of the day.
In the Area
Although the resort is just a half-hour drive from Cancun International Airport, its privileged oceanfront address means plenty of paddle-boarding, kayaking, and even scuba diving. For the ultimate day trip, head to Tulum’s famed archaeological zone, Chichen Itza, which is about two hours away by car (the concierge will gladly arrange your pilgrimage), while Riviera Maya’s cenotes and theme parks are all within a 20-minute drive. If you’re seeking dinner and a show, head to the Vidanta Riviera Maya, home to the first Cirque de Soleil resident production in Mexico—an awe-inducing act that draws on the region’s rich history and heritage.
How to Get There
My husband and I just returned from a spectacular 6 nights stay at the Chable Maroma. I won’t repeat specific details from other reviewers but in short the setting/villa, service, food, spa exceeded our expectations. Some reviewers talked about the price of food/beverages so we asked for a near all-inclusive/full board plan to cover our lunch, dinner and drinks which worked out well for us. It's the perfect destination to relax, unwind and reconnect.
Nice views, excellent customer service, private & quiet/relaxing:) Our villa was amazing. (We spent a lot of time in our villa) I had balloons waiting for me along with a card and cake upon my arrival. We loved the plunge pool. Customer service was again excellent. Humberto, Marco, Everyone at the pool and the Kaban restaurant was amazing. The entire hotel staff as a whole deserves 5 stars. Thank you for an amazing birthday experience :)
My wife and I stayed at Chable Maroma in early September 2019. We have stayed at a few other nice hotels in the Cancun/Playa Del Carmen area over the years and Chable Maroma is far better than any, from the overall property, rooms, beach, pool area, restaurants and service, Chable is hands down the best! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty by Paula at the front desk. The quick tour of the resort as you head to your room was great and informative, they even did a quick Mayan ritual at the spa to welcome us and remove stress, it was fun! The wait staff at the restaurant Kaban greeted us by name every morning and evening, a special thanks to Marco, Humberto & Freddie, their service is top notch and the food is even better!!! We ate at their other restaurant BU'UL which is also incredible, between BU'UL and Kaban you will have all the food choices you need. The Raw Bar rooftop bar is also a big attraction, big overstuffed couches and chairs paired with top notch drinks makes for the perfect spot to watch the sunset or the occasional incoming storm over the ocean!
The guys at the pool and beach Salomon, Carlos & Carlos, they were always there if you needed a drink or snack, not overbearing, but you didn't have to wait or go find someone if you needed something.
Pedro is in charge of beach activities including diving and snorkeling, I snorkled 4 times just because it was so beautiful right in front of the hotel or a short boat ride away. Pedro goes out of his way to make sure you see something incredible each time out... we saw sea turtles, sting rays, a huge spotted manta ray and hundreds of cool fish and reef! He's the best! Thanks Pedro!!!
I could go on and on about how great a time we had , but I like others are afraid the hotel will become too popular and turn into similar hotels we have stayed at in the past, crowded and impersonal. Until then we will continue to visit Chable and its fantastic staff as often as possible! Thanks for a wonderful time Chable and Staff!
