Mandarin Oriental, Riviera Maya


RIVIERA MAYA, Mexico— The third stop on Travel Agent’s recent tour of Cancun and Riviera Maya properties was perhaps one of the best luxury products we’ve ever seen in Mexico. The Mandarin Oriental, Riviera Maya was the definition of modern, trendy elegance. This was high-class at its best, from the property’s six artists' sculptures located throughout the property— essentially creating an outdoor art museum— to incredible rooms like the Presidential Villa, offering three bedrooms, a rooftop plunge pool, two floors, and there are windows in front of the sink offering views of the ocean. Book these for clients looking for the best of the best, but other rooms such as our Villas Selva, or “jungle,” will not disappoint.

We stayed in room #347, which offers an outdoor pool set in the heart of the property’s jungle landscape. The room also comes with a king bed, a bathroom with a Jacuzzi and a separate closet area. Our favorite subtle feature was the sliding door from the bedroom to the bathroom, which was actually a mirror on the other side, making you feel completely isolated in your bed. Another neat touch is that all remote controls in every room glow, so you won’t have problems channel surfing in the dark. Agents should call Oscar Molina, senior sales manager, at 011-52-984-877-3251 or [email protected].

Stay tuned as Travel Agent brings you more properties we saw during our one-week tour of Riviera Maya and Cancun resorts.
