Chic all-inclusive getaway with gorgeous pools and restaurants for both kids and adults, perched on the Caribbean Sea
Located in Punta Cancún, a peninsula surrounded on three sides by the Caribbean Sea, this upscale resort has a layout that takes full advantage of its ocean views. Common areas are bright and spacious, with a contemporary décor that nods to both Midcentury Modernism and traditional Mayan materials and themes, from the coral stone wall in the lobby to the woven accents throughout. Much of life at the 547-suite resort unfolds outdoors. A sprawling tiered pool with a swim-up bar fills the center of the property, while a second infinity pool sits at the edge of one of two pristine beaches (beachgoers can relax under on a series of thatched umbrellas lining the sand). But the real star—at least for grown-ups—is the rooftop infinity pool at the adults-only building, which may well be one of Cancún’s most gorgeous locations. With nearly 20 food venues (we counted eight restaurants, three lounges, and six bars), no one will go hungry or thirsty here. A small sampling: Lorenzo’s serves wood-fired pizzas in a charmingly rustic space, Chevy’s is a fun diner modeled after 1960s drive-ins, and La Bastille caters to couples with a romantic French vibe. Then there’s Zen Spa, a sophisticated haven of serenity whose highlight is a hydrotherapy circuit with sweeping ocean views. Welcome to the new generation of all-inclusives.
In the Area
Cancún, on Mexico’s lush Yucatán Peninsula, is one of the most famous vacation spots in the world. The turquoise Caribbean Sea is perhaps the area’s biggest attraction, but there’s plenty to do besides lounging on a beachside chaise. A visit to the Tulúm ruins, site of the only Mayan city built on the coast, is worth the 90-minute drive. Halfway between Cancún and the island of Isla Mujeres is a truly unique underwater museum, MUSA, where English sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor built over 500 life-sized sculptures depicting human forms. Nature lovers should not miss the Great Maya Reef, a snorkeling paradise brimming with tropical fish, nor the area’s cenotes, a series of cave-like diving pools.
