For the tenth consecutive year, Fairmont Mayakoba has been honored with the esteemed Five Diamond Award by the American Automobile Association (AAA), a distinction achieved every year since its opening in 2006. Considered North America's premier rating system, AAA reviews over 65,000 hotels annually with less than one percent of candidates meeting the rigorous criteria in order to be honored with the AAA Five Diamond award.
“The AAA Five Diamond Award is a true testament to the dedication Fairmont Mayakoba puts into providing guests with a remarkable experience,” said Dennis Clark, General Manager, Fairmont Mayakoba. “As we celebrate our 10 year anniversary, this distinction further reiterates our commitment to surpassing the expectations of our guests, ensuring that we deliver an exceptional service each and every day. 2016 will mark the commencement of a new and exciting chapter for Fairmont Mayakoba and this award motivates us to continue fulfilling our promise of turning moments into memories for our guests.”
The AAA Five Diamond Award is the highest level of the AAA Diamond Rating System for restaurants and lodgings. AAA has over 55 million members in the U.S. and Canada. “Fairmont Mayakoba represents what it takes to be a AAA Five Diamond hotel and we are proud to acknowledge them as a consistent leader in the hospitality industry” says Tony Perrone, AAA Regional Director. “Fairmont Mayakoba is an exceptional hotel with a culture of excellence at the highest level. With stunning surroundings, personalized service and attention to every detail, Fairmont Mayakoba continues to raise the bar in the hospitality industry.”
This distinction has positioned the hotel as one of the leading options for visitors around the world who visit the Riviera Maya, and reinforces its position within Mexico and North America’s hotel elite.
Fairmont Mayakoba’s commitment to excellence in all facets of hospitality has also seen the introduction of a new resort culinary program, renewing three property restaurants – Brisas, El Puerto and La Laguna – under the direction of Chef Richard Sandoval. Offering distinct Latin-Coastal, Latin-Asian and Mexican culinary concepts, the new menus are focused on an innovative “old ways, new hands” approach. Also new in Mayakoba is El Pueblito, an outdoor space that resembles an authentic Mexican village square, with a mix of sidewalk restaurants, boutiques, a kiosk for live entertainment and an art gallery. The venue can house events of up to 1,000 guests and offers weekly Sunday mass at La Santa Cruz, a traditional Catholic chapel, along with daily activities.
A further addition to the memorable experiences offered at Fairmont Mayakoba is the next edition of its highly acclaimed Appetite for Luxury inclusive package. Premium Appetite for Luxury is an all-encompassing program designed for guests to indulge in all of the resort’s award-winning culinary outlets on an elevated and unlimited basis.
