After spending a week in Tulum, I was fortunate enough to visit pure paradise, also known as The Fairmont Mayakoba, spending three blissful days at the stunning resort set along the Rivera Maya.

From the lush tropical forest to the luxurious pools to the delicious food, I was just blown away - I kept pinching myself it felt like an absolute dream!

It was the most unique resort I have visited, with the rooms set along the canals looking out onto the water (where you could spot fish, a wild amount of birds and even alligators!) We spent lazy days waking up having coffee on our amazing deck (we splurged on breakfast in our room on the last day, something I love indulging in when traveling) eating guacamole and chips and sipping on yummy drinks by the pool, and were spoiled with a day in the super luxurious Willow Stream Spa for massages and swimming in the private rooftop pools. I never wanted to leave!!

There were so many amazing moments making this visit so special-From being greeted with beautiful drinks upon arrival to indulging in non-stop pool side treats to going for a massage to returning to our room to find the bed and bathtub covered in rose petals to having breakfast overlooking the crystal clear canals to just walking through the beautiful grounds, it was certainly a trip to remember.
