The Banyan Tree, which opened in the lavish Mayakoba coastal development in March 2009, upped the opulence ante with 107 private stand-alone villas (the smallest is 3,150-plus square feet), complete with slate floors, Talavera earthenware sinks, and soaring glass skylights. Each is a sanctuary, with its own walled garden, pool, and sun terrace, while the decadent spa and private beach club encourage style-setters to meander through the gardens and dunes.

Room to Book:

Designed for couples, Spa Pool Villas sport their own alfresco treatment area including his-and-her massage beds, plus a private swimming pool and two outdoor showers.

Insider Tip:

After booking a room, reserve tee time on the nearby Greg Norman–designed El Camaleón golf course; it’s home to Mexico’s first PGA Tour event.
