The Belmond brand is synonymous with the very finest in hotels, luxury trains and river cruising. The winning bidders on this lot will discover the key to relaxation at the two Belmond hotels in Mexico and come back refreshed and rejuvenated.
Your week in paradise begins at Maroma, the beating heart of Riviera Maya, 30 miles south of Cancun. The Mayan Riviera stretches along the Caribbean coastline from Playa del Carmen to Tulum, at the border of the state of Yucatán. In addition to the archaeological sites, the region is famous for its pristine beaches and aquatic activities such as jet-skiing, scuba diving and snorkeling.
Hidden away, untouched, mysterious, Maroma, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Maya blends Mayan mystique with refined vitality. Set between the labyrinthine jungle and the wide-open sea, this recently transformed hideaway boasts light, airy, art-filled rooms created by acclaimed designer Tara Bernerd. The majority of accommodations offer sea views. Originally built by believers in Sacred Geometry, the architecture and artisanal features blend with the energy of the surrounding nature. Here, mind, senses and soul are in harmony.
You’ll be one of the first guests to visit the completely redesigned property, which will reopen in Spring 2023. Spend three nights in One Bedroom Oceanfront Suites with a private plunge pool. Unique activities, such as swimming in cenotes and archeological tours, invite guests to dive into Mayan culture. At the Maroma Spa by Guerlain, unrivaled wellness rituals include traditional temazcal and cacao ceremonies. Beachfront restaurants offer fresh, mouthwatering cuisine while the bars serve up artisanal mezcals and rare Mexican wines.
Depending on availability, indulge in one of the many activities at Maroma: Sail across the shimmering waters of the Yucatán Channel on a Hobie Cat, kayak or WaveRunner. Discover the secrets of Yucatán’s ancient Mayan sites, a culture where mysticism is mixed with extraordinary scientific achievement. Go snorkeling in Cenotes, freshwater sink holes carved by underground rivers; imbued with spiritual meaning by Mayans, they are a unique feature of the area. For scuba diving enthusiasts, the world’s second-largest barrier reef lies only 10 minutes from Maroma beaches; swim in clear, unspoiled waters among a breath-taking kaleidoscope of coral and marine life. Visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, which offers the rare chance to witness turtles laying their eggs from May to September. Swim with dolphins or whale sharks, go kiteboarding or play golf.
Enjoy the second half of your Mexican vacation at Casa de Sierra Nevada, A Belmond Hotel, San Miguel de Allende, located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico. This historic town was founded on the wealth of silver and was also a center of revolutionary activity during the struggles for Mexican independence. The hotel consists of six restored, 17th- and 18th-century buildings set around courtyards with cloisters, fountains and frescoes. You’ll spend three nights in a spacious suite draped in heritage décor, peppered with authentic local antiques and state-of-the-art amenities.
You’ll explore the Mexican countryside during a visit to Rancho Xotolar, a working ranch that has been in the Morin Ruiz Family for over four generations, located in a rural and pristine environment untouched by modernization. You will ride through spectacular countryside with breathtaking views and stunning landscapes guided by Thomás and Felix Morín, who will share their vast knowledge and skills. After your ride, enjoy an authentic ranch comida of delicious, freshly prepared specialties of Rancho Xotolar along with a cold cerveza.
You’ll visit Cuna de Tierra, the first winery in the region and home to a gastronomic restaurant. After a four-course lunch composed of local specialties and paired with Cuna de Tierra wines, visit the Torre de Tierra viewpoint for a tour of the production area.
This lot provides the perfect opportunity to recharge and renew your energy, while seeing the best of the real Mexico—and helping our kids at the same time!
