Guests who have vacationed at the Mayakoba eco-resort development in Mexico’s Riviera Maya now have an opportunity for home ownership, albeit at a pretty steep price.

Plans were unveiled for Mayakoba Residences, a collection of ultraluxury villas that border jungle, tropical mangroves, beaches and freshwater lagoons surrounding the Rosewood Mayakoba, Fairmont Mayakoba and Banyan Tree Mayakoba resorts. The residences are expected to be completed by January.

Interior designer Thom Filicia will feature Mexican contemporary design in Rosewood’s 33 luxury homes set on 13 acres of land, a majority of which are located on three private islands.

Units are currently for sale, with prices ranging from $2.5 million to $5.5 million each.

Filicia offers four layouts for the residences, ranging from 3,497 square feet to 6,079 square feet. Owners have access to the five-star amenities offered at Rosewood Mayakoba resort, including restaurants, the spa and kids’ club. 

Nearby is the 18-hole El Camaleon Golf Course, designed by Greg Norman.

Resort guests and future homeowners are transported in boats via canals made exclusively for Mayakoba, which has led to the development being called “the Venice of the Yucatan.”

Fairmont Heritage Place Mayakoba is a collection of 30 fully furnished three- and four-bedroom fractional residences separate from the main Fairmont resort.

Owners have privileges at the resort and golf course as well as at other Fairmont hotels and Raffles and Swissotel properties.

Each Banyan Tree residence is a three-story, three-bedroom unit with a private infinity tool on the rooftop level.

Owners can opt to join the Banyon Tree rental program when not occupying their units.
