Romantic adults-only resort with swim-up rooms on the Riviera Maya’s azure Caribbean coast
A meandering lazy river, thickets of palm trees, myriad swim-up bars and a lounger-lined beach set the barefoot chic ambiance at this all-suite resort just 25 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. All 282 suites feature marble or Mexican tile floors, a Jacuzzi for two and a private balcony or terrace. Book a Swim-up Jacuzzi Suite so you can slip right into the lazy river that snakes in front of the rooms to the resort’s main pool. Should you want to book Nâay Spa’s signature Beachfront Sky Massage or simply sip on frosty margaritas in a private cabana, a designated beach butler stands at the ready. On the activities menu? Kayaking, snorkeling, beach and water volleyball, yoga, dance lessons and a variety of shows. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, you can choose among six restaurants, including the á la carte Arrecifes, the modern Asian-focused Klay Talay and the wine-centric Mia Casa Italian restaurant.
In the Area
The resort is located just 25 minutes south of the restaurant- and bar-lined streets of downtown Playa del Carmen. Don’t miss the shrimp tacos with the spicy verde sauce at La Floresta (between Constituentes and Juarez streets) on the southbound service road just underneath the Highway 307 bypass. For traditional Mexican, try Carboncitos (4 Norte, between 5th and 10th avenues), where the people-watching is as good as the flank steak burrito and $6 jumbo margaritas. Must-orders at the Italian-owned Piola (Calle 38 between 5th and 1st avenues) include the wood-oven fired pizzas and basil martinis, served in an intimate garden two blocks from the beach. A trip to the Riviera Maya is not complete without seeing the ancient Mayan Ruins of Chichén Itza , the seaside structures of Tulum and the jungle-fringed peaks of Coba. Looking to escape into the wild? Drive 20 minutes through Tulum’s Hotel Zone to the 1.3-million-acre Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, an UNESCO site flanked by the Caribbean on one side and a turquoise lagoon on the other that’s prime for kayaking and underwater cenote diving. Afterward, watch the sunset with a salty margarita and a bowl of ceviche from casual rooftop spot Cesiak.
