The Luxury Canal boats ferry guests on complimentary rides through winding natural lagoons at the Fairmont Mayakoba, a 401-room resort set on 47 acres of verdant jungle. All rooms sport deep soaking tubs and private terraces; some overlook the forests and waterways, which guests can explore via hiking, biking, or boat tours. Four restaurants serve locally sourced, sustainable seafood, such as spiny lobster and Caribbean reef snapper. On-site attractions include five freshwater pools, a spa with 20 treatment rooms, and an 18-hole golf course; miles of powdery white beach lie nearby.
The Value Readers can take 30 percent off regular room rates for bookings through December; prices start at $189/night. An exclusive 45-minute private boat tour of the grounds and nearby hotels is included.
The Catch Readers must book this deal 60 days in advance; the discount does not apply to casitas and suites. A $15/night resort fee is extra.
