TORONTO, ONTARIO (Feb 27, 2013) — Fairmont Hotels & Resorts today announced the newest addition to its private residence club offering with the launch of Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba. Located in the most exclusive resort complex of the Mexican Caribbean, in the vibrant heart of the Mayan Riviera, Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba is a dream conceived by OHLD and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.
Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba features 30 exclusive residences sold in 1/12 fractions available in three-bedroom units (2,152 square feet) with spacious terraces and four-bedroom units (2,238 square feet) with private terrace, plunge pools and roof top garden access.

Located within the award-winning Mayakoba resort development – renowned for its singular ecosystem of dunes, jungle, mangrove forests and freshwater lagoons – the residences are set away from the beach to protect the integrity of the coastal mangroves, home to myriad indigenous species of fish, birds and mammals. Owners gain access to world-class golf on Mayakoba”s 18-hole, Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón championship course, host to the only PGA TOUR event in Latin America and the Jim McLean Golf School. Dining and spa privileges are also included at all of Mayakoba”s three hotels – Fairmont, Rosewood, and Banyan Tree Mayakoba, easily accessed via the Mayakoba Connection ferry service connecting the three properties.

Six miles of crystal clear waterways flow throughout the resort and lead to the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. An eco-conscious development, Mayakoba has been recognized by both the United Nations World Tourism Organization and Rainforest Alliance as a world leader in sustainable tourism. The more than 148 acres of protected mangrove forests along the coastline provide an important habitat for more than 200 species of tropical flora and fauna, which guests can experience via private boat tour with a resort biologist or on the Mayakoba Connection and Nature Trail. Mayakoba offers the ideal luxury setting from which to experience nearby Mayan historical sites and ecological parks such as: Xelha, Xcaret, Tulúm, Coba, Sian Ka”an and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, Chichén Itzá.
