Fairmont Mayakoba Riviera Maya Offers Green Meetings
July 13, 2009
assists meeting planners in organizing "green" meetings that focus on corporate social responsibility and live up to their philosophy: to harmonize with and take care of its distinctive surroundings, including nature, wildlife and the local community. For groups looking to make a positive impact in the local community or environment, Fairmont Mayakoba offers a range of meaningful group activities from beach clean-ups to volunteering events at local orphanages.
Mayakoba is situated just south of Cancún on México's prized Caribbean coast - the Riviera Maya. A mere 40-minute drive from the towering hotels of Cancún visitors will discover a completely different experience. Here, nestled in a lush natural paradise, lies Mayakoba, a truly unique resort destination. Mayakoba is comprised of four luxury resorts, each featuring a range of culinary and spa experiences. An 18-hole Greg Norman championship golf course, El Camaleón, managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, offers players an ever-changing terrain that moves gracefully from mangroves to the sea. Created to harmonize with the unspoiled tropical forest, Mayakoba is connected with a series of lagoons enabling guests to wander effortlessly from place to place through the resort using the "lanchas" (covered boats) as well as a network of trails. Mayakoba is a luxury destination like no other where you are immersed in unspoiled natural beauty and the mysteries of an ancient civilization.
Fairmont Mayakoba is designed to appeal to the creative conference planner, with large and small ballrooms, breakout rooms and outdoor space, all equipped with the latest technology. The meeting space at the hotel consists of 26,495-square-feet of function space, including a specifically-designed 8,000-square-foot outdoor event lawn, which can adapt to any type of function. Its two main ballrooms Riviera and Mimosa make up for almost half of the total meeting space and include spacious foyers, which make a perfect location for a cocktail reception or welcoming hall to greet hard-working employees. The Riviera's impressive foyer is available for large receptions with up to 250 guests, while the Mimosa ballroom can host receptions with up to 180 guests. The meeting facilities also include seven smaller rooms ranging from 620 sq. feet to 960 sq. feet of function space. All the meeting facilities have high-speed wireless internet access and indoor music, lighting and sound to accommodate the guest's specific needs.
During their stay at the resort, guests can enjoy a range of activities, from splashing around the crystal waters of Fairmont Mayakoba's beach to enjoying an array of "green" activities including nature walks, boat tours of the resort's pristine water canals and bike rides, among other on-site and off-site excursions.
Those who truly want to surround themselves with "green" can take advantage of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts' managed golf course,
, the PGA TOUR site for The Mayakoba Classic, the first full-field event ever held outside of the USA or Canada. The Greg Norman-designed course provides golf enthusiasts a challenging 18-hole, par-72, 7,000-yard course, which bends through tropical jungles, dense mangroves and oceanfront stretches of sand. While carefully planned to include unique hazards and challenging greens, the 7,000-yard course has also been developed with all levels of players in mind and includes an extensive practice and learning facility. Additionally, Fairmont Mayakoba's staff would be pleased to coordinate golf tournaments to fit your groups needs, including one-day or multi-day events.
For a more relaxing time, groups can indulge at the exquisite Willow Stream Spa, where guests can feel like Mayan royalty with its unique spa treatments and experiences based on local Mayan tradition. Guests can choose from a variety of treatments based on local tradition and flora that fit their specific needs, from hydration treatments to total relaxation and stress relieving experiences. Located in the heart of a tropical jungle, the Willow Stream Spa features 20 rooms, many of which have private balconies overlooking the forest canopy. Groups can also arrange their own private yoga lessons or take advantage of customized companion packages, which may include spa treatments, fitness classes, etc., for spouses of conference attendees.
Make your next function a unique and successful one with Fairmont Mayakoba's extraordinary meeting facilities and eager staff. With the "Sweet Meeting Deal," 10 percent of the room revenue (pre tax, resort fee and gratuities) generated by your booking will be credited to the program's master account. Rates for the "Sweet Meeting Deal" start from $195 USD per night on selected dates from April 20, 2009 through June 30, 2010, based on availability.

A minimum of two nights and block of 25 rooms per night applies.
