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
I, like a previous post, hesitate to share how absolutely perfect this place is bc I want it to be my own oasis! But I must share to give the credit due to the absolutely wonderful staff and accommodations at Chable.
Disclaimer: While it is definitely not a cheap vacation, the value for what you receive is worth every penny. The staff, accommodations, and meals are the best we have experienced in Mexico (been going for past 10 years including other spots on Maroma beach).
VIBE - Ultimate relaxation and comfort. Definitely not a party scene which is EXACTLY what we were looking for.
We arrived on my birthday and greeted at the entrance by smiling faces wishing me “Happy Birthday!” It wasn’t forced, it felt so authentic like good friends waiting on me to arrive (Thank you Paola and Adriana!) from there we were shown a quick tour and welcomed with a traditional Mayan greeting at the Spa.
ROOM- garden bungalow - absolutely gorgeous - both walls were glass making you feel as is you were sleeping in a tree house. Greeted with fresh roses and personal note
FOOD - best in Mexico hands down. complimentary breakfast is not some cheap buffet - it’s a full menu of hand made fresh daily goodness. Juices, smoothies, coffees, etc.
DRINKS - made fresh not a mix - all outstanding
Every meal was DELICIOUS. All fresh and amazing. Recommend taking complimentary cooking class - so fun and interesting! Chef Rodrigo even made us his favorite dish, off menu.
HUGE shout out to Chef Rodrigo and pastry chef Artemio - We’ve never had more delicious pastries or meals anywhere. We were expertly taken care of each morning by Humberto and Freddy, and our evenings were complete with Carter and Hector. The entire staff was perfection.
Our room was kept immaculate thanks to the amazing housekeeping. On the last night I was surprised with a very personal gift from them- a little hooded bath towel for my baby due in January. I had shared the first day what the babies name would be and they had it embroidered with the initial!!! I have no idea who told them - it was the sweetest, most thoughtful gift. I truly treasure it.
SPA- again - a must. Yessica was THE BEST! I booked her twice!! The amenities and locker room all beautiful.
Every bathroom/room/restaurant on the property was immaculate and designed gorgeously.
Thank you to all our new friends for making it the absolute best, relaxing trip ever:
Umberto, Hector, Rodrigo, Paola Paulette Perez :), Yessica, Adriana, Solomon, Carter, Artemio, Freddy, Dolores and I know there are more I am leaving out.
After staying at the Ritz Carlton and La Zebra for the beginning of our trip, we stumbled upon Chable Maroma, tired and sick from our travels to be swept into a cocoon of top notch luxury and service. The villas are beautifully appointed and private. Bathrooms are amazing with both indoor and outdoor showers. Love that the outdoor pool can be heated to your preferred temperature. On our first night we were not feeling well and the chef prepared the most delicious chicken broth that cured us! We then were able to fully enjoy the enormous and peaceful pool, terrific gym, fantastic chocolate cooking class and morning yoga on the beach (both classes were complimentary). There is also an amazing spa where you can enjoy a complimentary hydrotherapy introduction where a staff member guides you through a steam room, whirlpool, then both warm and cold pools and then gives you a hand and foot massage with aromatherapy!! Each and every staff member tries to help make your stay memorable and they end each interaction with "it is my pleasure". If you are looking for a party scene this is not your hotel, but if you want to be pampered and enjoy peace and top notch service look no further. Totally unexpected treasure just half an hour from Cancun airport. We easily took a day trip to Cozumel, the Playa del Carmen ferry is less than 30 minutes away, but honestly once you arrive you may never want to leave. Hurry and discover this gem and be the first to become a Chable convert...we will absolutely return!!
I was looking for rest and relaxation for my birthday and found it at this excellent resort. The secluded feel of the resort is a huge plus in making you truly feel like you are far away from your troubles. The villa I occupied was just outstanding, with its on fresh water pool. The free American breakfast drop off in the morning helped to give you a bit more time in bed. But be careful of raccoons. I awoke to one ravaging my basket one morning...! The service was impeccable and the spa was a dream. I had the best massage I’ve ever had here from Yamani. His skill is unmatched. The restaurant was great and Hector (both) were delightful - always there to assist and make recommendations. If I have to deduct points it would be for the beach. There was so much seaweed on the beach, it made it impossible to swim in the ocean. That was a bummer. I spent a considerable amount of time in their pool which was great. There are two full restaurants and one bar. The food got a bit monotonous but was very enjoyable nonetheless. There is a construction site next door that made quite a bit of noise but my headphones drowned it out. Also, I wasn’t notified about state eco taxes and fees until my second night which I thought was weird. All in all, I will absolutely revisit.
