The Banyan Tree Veya Bacalar, scheduled to open in 2025, will be set in the lush jungle of the Bacalar Lagoon region on the southeast coast of the Yucatán Peninsula near the border between Belize and Mexico. The destination is known as the “seven-coloured lagoon”, a nod to the many shades of blue reflected in the waters of the area. The future property will also fall under the umbrella of the new wellness-focused Veya brand.

The resort will cost $28 million to develop and offer 35 villas and five residences offering guests privacy and high-end amenities, including a large pool and four waterfront restaurants. One of the restaurants will be located directly above the dream lagoon, a first for the region. Guests can also explore the serene and picture-perfect area on their own kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

Of course, the fact that this is a Banyan Tree property means that well-being will be at the center of the guest experience. The property’s spa, where travelers can indulge in traditional treatments, will be designed to resemble a cenote (aka the large deep-water wells that dot the Yucatán Peninsula). Personalized wellness offers targeting sleep, nutrition, fitness and “harmony with nature” will also be available.
