2021 was an important time for Mexico. The hotel world had some exciting openings and rebranding projects, and 2022 will follow similarly with the launch of some standout properties in the Mexican Caribbean. Here’s a list of the best new hotels in Playa del Carmen for 2022.
Etéreo, Auberge Resorts Collection – Riviera Maya
Etéreo opened for the 2021 Christmas season, and the reservations have continued to pour in ever since. A 40-minute drive south of Cancun, the resort looms over a protected mangrove swamp, with each of the 75 properties overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Five restaurants fuse traditional Mayan and modern Mexican cuisine, and the Auberge Spa invites you to relax with healing rituals and body treatments on an outdoor floating massage platform. It really is ethereal, as the name suggests.
The new luxury beach resort in Playa del Carmen from the Xcaret Group opened to the public in July 2021. The expansive adults-only beachfront property is just a 15-minute drive south of town and offers 900 stylish accommodations inspired by the artists of Mexico. The resort features nine upmarket dining venues and a luxury spa. In addition to relaxing under the sun or swimming in the sea and the infinity pools of this dream paradise, you can explore and have fun in all the parks of Grupo Xcaret, to which you have unlimited access as a guest of Hotel Xcaret Arte.
