Costa Mujeres, a beach destination located north of Cancun, has evolved into one of the trendiest Mexican Caribbean hotspots, attracting higher numbers of visitors by the day.

In fact, during the first week of January, hotel occupancy rates at this coastal paradise reached over a whopping 90%, even beating hotspots like Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

So, what is the secret to Costa Mujeres’ soaring popularity?

Undoubtedly, some of the key reasons include its secluded ambiance, a stark contrast to Cancun’s bustling lifestyle, and its expansive, pristine beaches.

But another crucial reason is its prime selection of luxurious all-inclusive resorts, from which the stunning ATELIER Playa Mujeres stands out.

Despite only being in operation since 2019, the 5-star adults-only all-inclusive has garnered international acclaim, receiving numerous awards by high-profile entities such as Forbes, the Travvy Awards, Magellan Awards, and TripAdvisor’s ‘Traveler’s Choice Awards.’

Recently, this resort added yet another entry to its list of prestigious accolades, receiving recognition as the only Mexican resort winner in the “Best Hotels in North America category at the “I Prefer Member’s Choice Awards 2023.”

The awards, backed by the votes of I Prefer members, honor the highest standards of quality and commitment to excellence in the hospitality industry.

If you’re curious to learn more about why ATELIER Playa Mujeres has emerged as a Costa Mujeres favorite and the reasons behind its growing list of awards, read on.

Redefining The All-Inclusive Experience

Most 5-star all-inclusive resorts in Cancun prioritize sophistication and comfort, but ATELIER Playa Mujeres takes this concept to a whole new level.

For starters, its tasteful design draws inspiration from contemporary Mexican art, seamlessly blending nature, culture, art, and luxury.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the resort’s 593 suites, where the use of marble and fine woods, along with avant-garde furnishings, creates a haven for relaxation.

Then there’s the ATELIER Artist Service® all-inclusive concept, which introduces a range of benefits and perks that elevate the overall experience to new heights.

These perks include the Dine-Around® feature, granting guests access to the resort’s impressive array of more than 20 restaurants and bars (more on that later), as well as a Technogym® equipped with state-of-the-art gear.

Inside the rooms, the Total Rest Beds® and the Chill-Out Bath® ensure a luxurious and comfortable stay.

A Selection Of Luxurious Suites

Offering over a dozen different suite types, ATELIER Playa Mujeres ensures there’s a perfect option for every preference and taste.

The Junior Suite features spacious areas with stunning ocean views, perfect for couples and small groups of friends.


And for an elevated experience, you can opt for the INSPIRA suites, which introduce additional perks such as a personalized butler service, a private beach area, and access to a private oceanfront pool.

But that’s not all, as INSPIRA guests also enjoy privileged access to an exclusive lounge area,  the INSPIRA Rooftop Pool, an infinity pool with stunning ocean views, and more.

Unparalleled Experiences 

ATELIER Playa Mujeres goes above and beyond to ensure excellence in all fronts, including its selection of 12 world-class restaurants, some recognized by Wine Spectator, Distintivo T and AAA Diamond awards.

The culinary experiences here are wildly diverse, from Mexican delicacies at the resort’s flagship restaurant María Dolores, with signature dishes by chef Edgar Nuñez, to Asian and Mediterranean cuisine at Takeshi and Cara di Luna.


The variety extends to the bars as well, featuring everything from bohemian Mexican cantinas to chic rooftop bars. Additionally, there’s a unique theater where you can enjoy your drink alongside shows, artistic events, and cinema.

ATELIER Playa Mujeres’ commitment to blending tradition and innovation extends beyond its culinary offerings and design. The resort’s NUUP Spa, for instance, stands out with its innovative combination of virtual reality with ancient practices, creating a unique and relaxing experience.

And when you’re not indulging in the resort’s exceptional culinary and wellness offerings, a myriad of activities awaits – from golfing at the property’s Greg Norman-designed course to enjoying water sports or exploring the lush surroundings by bike.
