Modern Architecture – Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya


Could you imagine taking a break from your hectic life and escaping to this modern sanctuary? Designed by Mexican architect Gilberto Borja, the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya looks like the perfect place to relax.

Located 26 miles south of Cancun, Mexico, the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya is set amidst 36 acres of tropical forests, with calm water views over the Caribbean Sea. Visitors can check out the ancient Mayan ruins nearby, or can choose to stay back and lounge in the spa, the “soul” of the resort. According to their website, “the hideaway is where luxury and natural beauty are in complete harmony.”
