Saffron is Banyan Tree's signature restaurant, where guests can dine on authentic Thai cuisine while enjoying an unparalleled view


In order to provide the most authentic Thai cuisine available, Saffron employs chefs straight from Thailand.

Saffron offers Thai cooking that you'll want to bring back to your hotel in boxes. Foodies who know when a meal's been skillfully prepared and presented will appreciate that this restaurant is considered to be one of the nicer places to dine in the area. When is this restaurant option on the table? They're open during dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


Saffron overlooks the lobby of Banyan Tree to one side, and the sea to the other. Three decks sit on the water, offering a view of the mangroves, a peaceful and romantic setting.


This restaurant is a part of Banyan Tree Mayakoba, which is situated in the Riviera Maya, in Quintana Roo; it is four miles (six and a half kilometers) to the northeast of Playa del Carmen.

Considering the number of things to see and do here is limited, your group might need to drive a few miles for a more diverse range of attractions.

Part of the reason many people book hotels in this location is the presence of beaches and golf courses, for instance, El Camaleon Mayakoba and El Faro. El Faro is the closest place to access the beach, and lives just a quick trip from Saffron.

So, many are glad to learn this region of Mexico is lined with sit-down and quick-service restaurants that delight their customers with distinct types of food. The day after dining at Saffron, make room for a few samples of International fare at Ixchel, which isn't very far away.
