Viceroy Riviera Maya hotel
Think Playa del Carmen is all tequila happy hours and all-inclusive wristbands? Think again! Through the numerous ultra-big hotels and tourist attractions a different Riviera Maya light shines. Welcome to an enticing escape where time stands still and nature provides its own special brand of calm. Here, the only decision you’ll have to make each day is whether to lounge on the beach or by your private plunge pool, or perhaps what time to book your spa treatment.
Set amongst tropical jungle overlooking seven miles of secluded white sand, Viceroy Riviera Maya hotel along Mexico’s Caribbean coastline takes a barefoot approach to holiday relaxation. With an atmosphere of informal exclusivity, this expensive but supremely soothing haven just a seven-minute drive north of Playa del Carmen is your ultimate vitamin D supplement.
After passing huge hotels, you’ll reach this grown-up getaway (for adults only) on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Guests arrive to a Mayan Blessing, performed by the Mayan shaman on staff, releasing you from your cares and worries into a new, relaxed beginning at the resort. Oozing a laid-back boho spirit, Viceroy Riviera Maya hotel in Playa del Carmen is tailor-made for lovebirds, honeymooners and anyone who’d rather not have their peace interrupted by the patter of tiny feet.
Surrounded by the lush jungle of the Riviera Maya, this stylish member of the Viceroy Resorts clan has only 41 villas with tropical-chic yet relaxed interiors. Totally in harmony with nature, the private hideaways are lush, stunning and designed for guests who take romance seriously. Given that you’re in the jungle, expect to spot the resident family of spider monkeys. Presenting the epitome of unpretentious beach luxury, the thatched bungalows at Mexico’s Viceroy Riviera Maya resort are spread throughout the property. Some offer sea view, while others are hidden into verdant jungle gardens. Expect all the bells and whistles such as outdoor showers, plunge pools, four-poster netted beds, coffee machines, minibars, terraces replete with chaise lounges, hand-carved stone dining tables plus handmade crochet hammocks and much more to make your luxury holiday memorable. Any downsides? Outdoor spaces in some of Viceroy Riviera Maya’s villas don’t feel private; the meandering path runs right past the terraces and plunge pools.
Evenings kick off with tequila cocktails at the beach bar, before dinner at poolside La Marea Restaurant, serving upscale Mexican cuisine with Mediterranean influences. Alternatively, order in-villa dining or try the newly added casual Coral Grill beach eatery where you can enjoy magnificent vistas of the turquoise Caribbean water.
