This European-inspired adults-only resort is situated in the exclusive enclave of Playacar, just outside the bustling city of Playa del Carmen. The 200 rooms are located in villas spread throughout the property, the best of which have sweeping ocean views.
What Makes it Special:
- Beautiful landscaping – winding man-made rivers, lush, manicured gardens, and beachfront pool that seems to blend into the sea beyond
- Authentic Japanese dining at Azia restaurant, complete with tatami rooms and expertly made sushi
- The Chef’s Table at Las Ventanas restaurant: chef Florian Dürre's degustation menu includes classical techniques and molecular gastronomy (extra charge)
- Sunset and cocktails at Spices, the oceanfront restaurant
