Bask in the sun and experience utter tranquility at this luxurious, all-villa, AAA 4-Diamond resort tucked away on Playa del Carmen’s northern coast. The intimate resort is an oasis of natural beauty, with lush, green grounds, mangrove trees and winding freshwater lagoons along a private white-sand beach.
Each standalone villa feels like a private sanctuary with soaring ceilings and an abundance of airy living space spilling out to the intimate outdoor space. Villas start at a whopping 3,150-plus feet and are outfitted with authentic handcrafted Mayan-inspired furnishings, talavera earthenware sinks and dark slate floors that lend a modern twist. Floor-to-ceiling windows send the eye to the outdoors, where guests can look out to their immaculately landscaped garden, private 376-foot pool and sundeck where comfy, padded loungers await.
This luxe Thai chain pays homage to its roots at the on-site Saffron restaurant, where resident Thai chefs from the island of Phuket serve up top-notch Thai fare. Three other restaurants, along with a pool bar and rooftop cocktail lounge, offer guests copious dining and libation options. Unique, intimate dining experiences can also be arranged in the resort’s own private wine cellar or on the property’s traditional dining boats. Guests can sip champagne on board and enjoy a fusion of local and international cuisine while floating through the property’s network of tranquil lagoons and mangrove forests.
A full-service spa considered “one of the best in Mexico” (Fodor’s) and an 18-hole championship golf course designed by PGA professional Greg Norman are also on site.
