Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, a luxury brand in the FRHI Hotels & Resorts (FRHI) portfolio, and developer, OHL Desarrollos, today announced the upcoming opening of Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba. The official opening on March 20, 2015, will mark the completion of the first phase of the project and includes the debut of six of 30 planned private residence club homes, which are located in Mexico's most exclusive master-planned resort community.

Modelled as a fractional ownership opportunity, Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba combines the size, quality and elegance of a most luxurious vacation home with the five-star amenities and personalized service of a luxury resort.

Designed by the prestigious architectural firm SB-Architect and interior design firm, VR Design Group, the new private residence club features three-bedroom units with spacious terraces (3,875 square feet) and four-bedroom units with private terraces and rooftop garden access (6,544 square feet). The contemporary design emulates the locale's natural surroundings and uses authentic materials such as locally sourced stone, traditional wood and green living walls in living and public spaces. All residences feature private plunge pools, large en-suite bathrooms, full kitchens and open concept dining and living areas.

"This is another exciting addition to Fairmont's residential collection and a very attractive opportunity for anyone looking to own a vacation home in a truly pristine part of the world," said Kevin Frid, president, Americas FRHI Hotels & Resorts. "Fairmont Heritage Place really does provide owners with the best of both worlds by combining the prestige and convenience of a fully-deeded vacation home with the dedicated services and amenities of a Fairmont hotel."

"We are very excited about Fairmont Heritage Place," said Mayakoba's General Manager, Agustín Sarasola. "We certainly had high expectations from the plans, but I think I can genuinely say that these are now some of the finest residences I have seen in the Caribbean and they are a worthy addition to Mayakoba."

Located within the award-winning Mayakoba resort development - renowned for its singular ecosystem of dunes, jungle, mangrove forests and freshwater lagoons - the residences are set away from the beach to protect the integrity of the coastal mangroves, home to myriad indigenous species of fish, birds and mammals. Owners gain access to world-class golf on Mayakoba's 18-hole El Camaleón championship course, host of the only PGA TOUR event in Latin America and home to highly personalized instruction programs of the acclaimed Jim McLean Golf School. Dining and spa privileges are also included at all of the hotels within the larger Mayakoba resort development including the AAA Five Diamond Fairmont Mayakoba.

Sold in 1/12th fractions with a starting price of $179,000 USD, Fairmont Heritage Place, Mayakoba offers owners luxury amenities including access to airport transfers, valet parking, concierge services, daily housekeeping, 24-hour room service, and preferred rates at Fairmont Mayakoba's Willow Stream Spa. Other exclusive offerings range from a well-appointed Club House complete with owners lounge, bar, fitness and yoga facilities, a private pool and teen and kids play areas.
