Where You’re Staying

Bright accommodations all include private terraces, walk-in closets, and sitting areas, along with views of the garden canopy or the Caribbean Sea. Select suites offer full-size pools, while others feature a rooftop terrace, plunge pool, and champagne bar.

Where to Dine

Mistura offers 180-degree views and a selection of seafood dishes and grilled specialties that make use of Yucatan’s ingredients. Located between the pools and the beach, Café Esencia offers salads, sandwiches, tacos, and ceviches. Enjoy a cocktail and the sea breeze at Beach Bar.

Where to Relax

The hotel includes outdoor heated pools. Housed under a traditional palapa roof, The Spa takes advantage of the hotel’s location and uses ingredients harvested from the Caribbean and the surrounding jungle soil. The Lime Ritual is a purifying massage that alternates hand strokes with lime.
