EDITION hotels are currently dotted all over the world in locations such as Miami, London, and Shanghai, but this is the first of its kind to come to Mexico.

There truly isn’t anything like this in the area yet – a luxury resort that is unparalleled, boasting a whopping 186 rooms and suites for you to choose from, including a 206-square-meter penthouse suite.

The hotel will be located on an idyllic beachfront setting, deep in the heart of a jungle reserve in the Riviera Maya, spread across a gorgeous stretch of sandy white shores overlooking the Caribbean ocean.

It will have six tasty offerings for all your food and drink needs, including its signature restaurant, an intimate pool bar, and even a beach club which is perfect for soaking up that Mexican sunshine.

There’s a spa where you can unwind after a long day of swimming and sipping margaritas by the pool, an outdoor deck for some incredible parties and events, and even a spa for you to be pampered at – and if you’re in town for business, then the space has got you covered with multiple meeting spaces too.

It will boast a 2-kilometer strip of sugary white sandy beaches and an untouched coral reef from the world’s second-largest coral reef in the world, a haven for divers and lovers of nature – where you can spot endless amounts of coral and it also makes for a beautiful habitat for various marine life, fish, and turtles.

Where Is Kanai?

Located deep in the heart of Riviera Maya, you’ll find the new Kanai development around a 30-minute drive from Cancun International Airport and just 10 minutes from downtown Playa Del Carmen.

So if you want to venture further afield to witness some of the incredible activities and culture the area offers, then you are super close to neighboring towns like Puerto Morelos and Playa Del Carmen.

You have the opportunity to relax at Kanai some days, but other days, you can explore the ancient Mayan ruins of the area, maybe take a dip in one of the thousands of cenotes that are dotted in the area, or take yourself on an adventurous day out to Xcaret nearby.
