St. Regis Kanai – Information For Travelers

The St. Regis hotel brand is a luxury hotel chain owned and managed by Marriott International. Their latest offering, St. Regis Kanai in the Riviera Maya, is only the third St. Regis hotel in Mexico after the brand’s stunning Mexico City and Punta De Mita resorts.

Like those that came before it, the St. Regis Kanai Resort has brought its signature style and luxurious design choices to one of the most popular regions on the planet, making it truly a resort that travelers should be very excited about.

The new resort, which opened its doors for the first time on March 15th of this year, is located just 10 miles from the bustling resort town of Playa Del Carmen, and a shade over 40 miles from Cancun, making it easily accessible for travelers with plans of visiting either of these areas.

The property was inspired by the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sian Ka’an Reserve, and it is just a stone’s throw from the beach. The property’s elevated walkways and panoramic views help connect guests with nature in ways that competitors could only dream of.

The hotel’s design draws on both constellations and ancient Mayan artistic and ceremonial manifestations, making it a thing of beauty in and of itself, while its interior is equally as impressive.

Communal areas are decorated in homage to the region’s Mayan routes, while each of the resort’s 124 guestrooms and 19 suites are full of bespoke charm, with features such as hanging pendants and mirrors, walnut wood-carved headboards and access to the St. Regis Signature Butler Service.

There are six room types in total, each more luxurious than the last, with suites featuring their own private plunge pool.

With the bar already set high by the resort’s design and the charm of the rooms, guests will be relieved to know they’re not likely to be disappointed by the culinary options available.

A total of 8 different venues are open onsite, ranging from the resort’s signature Latin-inspired TORO by Chef Richard Sandoval to the cozier settings of The Library, where they can enjoy a wide variety of Mexican chocolate preparations.

If that wasn’t fancy enough, the resort will begin each evening with a celebratory champagne sabering as guests settle down to enjoy the night.

St. Regis Kanai also boasts world-class facilities, as fans of the brand will no doubt have come to expect.

A fitness center, outdoor pools, a salon, and the Tortuga Children’s Club are on site to keep both adults and kids busy, but it’s the spa that will be turning the most heads.

The St. Regis Spa features a wide range of treatments inspired by ancient practices and using locally-sourced ingredients, helpings guests to unwind in unrivaled natural settings and feel at one with nature.

A five-night stay in mid-April will see prices start from just over $900 per night for the ocean-view Deluxe Guest room type, while a stay in the resort’s top rooms will cost upwards of an eye-watering $5000 per night on average.

For something in between, the St. Regis Suite – which boasts its own plunge pool – will set travelers back north of $1300 at the time of checking. A steep price, but one you won’t regret paying once you see the resort with your own eyes.
