A brand new festival will be hosted by the Mayakoba Resort in the Riviera Maya in Mexico this summer. The luxury resort near Cancun will launch the Mayakoba Masters of Food, Wine & Golf, presented by American Express from 2nd to 5th June, 2016.

During the four-day event, the resort will hold gala dinners, food, wine and spirit tastings, culinary demonstrations from celebrity chefs, interactive lunches, and after-parties at the resort’s three hotels: Banyan Tree, Rosewood and Fairmont Mayakoba. World-class chefs who will attend the event include Richard Sandoval, Abraham Salum, Fernando Trocca, Andrew Ormsby, Felipe Donnelly, Diane DiMeo, Antonio De Livier, Paola Carosella, Maru Botana and Montse Estruch.

The festival will kick off with a party on Rosewood Mayakoba's outdoor Palapa with culinary delights and beverages from guest chefs, winemakers, sommeliers, tequila masters and brewers.

The festival will also feature a two-day golf tournament at the resort’s award-winning El Camaleon Golf Club which will start with a special clinic hosted by master golf instructor, Jim McLean, on the Greg Norman-designed course.

"We look forward to welcoming such a celebrated gathering of chefs, wine and spirit masters to Mayakoba for our first Masters of Food, Wine & Golf," stated Carl Emberson, the Vice President of Operations and Marketing for Mayakoba. "Foodies, oenophiles and golf enthusiasts alike will appreciate the specially-curated events that highlight the culinary and cultural bounty of Mexico but also bring an international flair to the Riviera Maya. It's a unique way for our guests to experience the destination through food and wine, and we hope this is the first of many more events to come."

Festivities include a spa day and ladies luncheon with guest Chef Diane Dimeo at Rosewood Mayakoba, cooking classes with guest chefs at the El Pueblito Cooking School, a Farmer's Market at El Pueblito, a Mexican dinner with world-renowned Chef Richard Sandoval, the "Mayakoba Cup" Awards Luncheon prepared by Chefs Abraham Salum, Montse Estruch, Maru Botana, and the Closing Dinner & Party Presented by The Gourmet Awards where guests can meet celebrity chefs at Banyan Tree Mayakoba's Sands Beach Club.

Situated in Riviera Maya in Mexico, the eco-friendly Mayakoba Resort complex is set upon 593 acres of land that is made up of lagoons, mangrove forests, dunes, cenotes, canals, and pristine white sand beaches. Guests are transported to the resort’s crystal-clear turquoise lagoons and the mile-long unspoiled beach on boats via canals that have been built exclusively for the Mayakoba Resort.
