Mahekal Beach Resort Opens After $10M Renovation

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO—Mahekal Beach Resort held its grand opening following a $10-million renovation.

The beach resort features 122 rooms located in individual thatched-roof bungalows, all less than a two-minute walk from the  beach, according to the company. Additional new amenities include two  swimming pools, a seaside Jacuzzi, two restaurants (Las Olas and Cocina), and three bars (Boli’s, Itzi and Las Olas).

“We are proud to bring our vision to life and introduce Mahekal Beach Resort to travelers worldwide,” says Lamont Meek, COO of Circa Capital, co-owner and manager of Mahekal. 

All room types, whether Garden View, Ocean View, Penthouses or Ocean Front, feature outdoor terraces and hammocks, with stone pathways leading to each individual doorstep. Ocean Front accommodations are located directly on the beach and feature personal plunge pools.

Mahekal’s interior design is bohemian gypsy infused with Mexican accents. Designs range from Missoni-esque fabrics in the lobby and fireplace seating area, to bright orange ping pong tables and cobalt blue billiard tables in the main lobby bar and activity center.
