Stunning New Seaside Destination Invites Guests To Unwind at Aquí Me Quedo

October 31, 2018

Riviera Maya, Mexico (October 2018) – Step onto the sands and into the embrace of the Caribbean winds to be transported to the feel of a seaside villa where in and outdoors blend seamlessly and the warm welcome of the cantina calls. This is “Aquí Me Quedo,” named for the feeling “Here I Stay” that fills the newest destination at Rosewood Mayakoba.

An unrivaled retreat fresh from a $2.5 million investment, Aquí Me Quedo debuts in November 2018. Inspired by the residential style of a grand seaside home and the relaxed, natural beauty of nearby Tulum, this new adults-only, private enclave features open air living and dining rooms, three infinity edge pools sunken in the sand, La Cocina, an open kitchen for interactive culinary experiences, and La Palapa, a 2,200-square-foot private event beachfront indoor/outdoor palapa.

“We know that our guests have truly arrived when they feel free to just let go: let go of email and meetings, let go of daily stresses and responsibilities, and to even let go of time itself. With that in mind, we created Aquí Me Quedo as a place of complete leisure and unaffected luxury where guests enjoy the distilled essence of Rosewood service but still feel comfortable to bury their feet in the sand, laugh loud and long, and create memories with loved ones,” shares Daniel Scott, Managing Director of Rosewood Mayakoba.

Set amongst white sand beaches with views of the sparkling Caribbean sea, Aquí Me Quedo combines elegant, handcrafted artisanal furnishings with the raw beauty of natural elements to embody the essence of barefoot luxury. The exclusive design, envisioned by Zurcher Architects showcases Mexican design elements created by local artisans including handmade clay pieces from Colectivo 1050, based in Oaxaca, and lava rock from Ayres, based in the Yucatan, taking a modern approach to century-old traditions.
Each of the three infinity edge pools will offer distinctive amenities that rotate seasonally, such as poolside spa treatments, twists on popsicles and frose, and more, all surrounding an Oceanside firepit. La Palapa will double as a fitness pavilion, featuring morning spin and yoga classes. Guests are invited to settle in and enjoy life at La Sala and La Terraza, Aquí Me Quedo’s residential-style living rooms overlooking the sand and the sea.

At Aquí Me Quedo, Chef Juan Pablo Loza channels the vibrant, festive feel of a traditional Mexican cantina where guests gather to graze and sip throughout the day. At La Cantina, the menu brings together the best of Mexican street foods and drinks with freshly-made, Caribbean coastal-inspired fare. Signature offerings include Tikin Xic, a banana-leaf wrapped, achiote-rubbed local fish; refreshing ceviche and aguachile; made-to-order tacos, tortas and memelas; and charcoal-grilled vegetables and meats. La Cantina will also feature an extensive selection of agave spirits, proprietary to Rosewood Mayakoba, chilled coconuts, an Agua Fresca of the day and “El Ponche,” Aquí Me Quedo’s take on the classic punch served with a Mexican twist. For beer lovers, Rosewood Mayakoba is partnering with nearby Cerveza Akumal and its Brew Master Alex Lira to develop a blond ale brewed with local citrus, made exclusively for Aquí Me Quedo.

Aquí Me Quedo will be open be open daily to all Rosewood Mayakoba guests 16 years and older.
