The Banyan Tree Riviera Maya Wants You to Forget the Recession
Just in case you still enjoy daydreaming about tropical resort vacations, we've just heard that the luxurious line of Banyan Tree Hotels is prepping to open their first Mexico property on the Riviera Maya on March 1st. Joining the Mayakoba development with other hotels and the first PGA tour golf course outside of the US and Canada, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba serves as an indulgent getaway option far from the cheap thrills of Cancun.
If the picture above and the fact that they'll have 132 pool villas and a complete Banyan Tree Spa get your motor running, then we'd advise you to jump on it now as they begin with an opening special rate of $495 a night for the month of March. This includes the serious incentive of a 90-minute spa massage, and the knowledge that you beat their usual rates of $655-$800 a night by a longshot. Let's not forget that each room comes with more than just a private pool, but also the exhibitionist's delight: an outdoor bathtub. That's it, we're down for it--when's the next flight south of the border?
