Architectural masterpiece with box-like modernist rooms, a fusion restaurant and Pacific Ocean views
At the highest point of Brisas Marques overlooking all of Acapulco and the Pacific Ocean, Encanto Acapulco is an avant-garde marvel conceived by architect Miguel Angel Aragones. Like a modernist pueblo atop a hill, the gallery-like public spaces and boxy accommodations standout in brilliant white against green landscape and blue sea. Guestrooms are designed to draw the eye outside to the furnished private balconies and Acapulco vistas beyond, so interiors are simply dressed in toffee creams and whites, from the marble floors, bed frames and desks, to the crisp white linens and curtains. After dark, interiors show off a more playful side with funky neon lighting schemes in bright blues and purples. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and modern bathrooms with dual vanities and L’Occitane amenities, and many have private swimming pools. Terraza restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch while Origen restaurant is open for dinner, serving an eclectic mix of fusion dishes and fresh international favorites. There’s also a full-service pampering spa, state-of-the-art gym and exceptional hilltop swimming pool with huge daybeds for daytime lounging in the sunshine.
In the Area
Acapulco was once the playground of Hollywood stars and moguls, and although those golden days are long gone, there’s a certain renaissance under way in this rakish resort town. Get into the retro spirit with a water skiing session courtesy of Gordon Rathbun at Ski Paradise, then visit the legendary Hotel Los Flamingos, a 1930s-era hotspot that has hosted celebrities like John Wayne and Cary Grant, before heading to see the famous cliff divers at La Quebrada.
