Luxury hotels are plentiful in Cancun, so how do you choose between them all? From trendy new hotels to classic tried-and-tested favorites, we’ll walk you through a selection of the best luxury hotels in Cancun, helping you to plan that much-needed 2021 beach vacation.
Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun
Designed only for adults, this beachfront hotel right in the heart of the Zona Hotelera is super contemporary in style. Colors are predominantly light and neutral, with rooms and communal hotel areas bright but still calming.
The hotel is only a 15-minute walk from Punta Cancun, where you’ll find the majority of nightlife, shopping, and restaurants. But you’re just far enough away to enjoy the clear waters and white sands in peace and tranquility.
This hotel wins on service, with staff always at hand to meet your every need, and even a personalized butler service available. You can enjoy gourmet dining throughout the day in the hotel’s French, Italian, and Peruvian-Asian fusion restaurants.
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Cancun
If you want to be in the heart of the action, this perennial favorite could be the hotel for you. It’s situated on one of the best swimming beaches in the whole of Cancun, and there are swimming pools galore.
The Grand Fiesta Americana Coral is known to have one of the best spas in the Hotel Zone. A staggering 40,000 sq ft in size, the spa offers a huge variety of pampering options, including hydrotherapy healing, Mayan-inspired massages, and a full range of beauty services.
Acknowledging that guests deserve something above and beyond All-Inclusive, this hotel subscribes to the ‘Infinite Vacation’ philosophy. Guests can select from a menu of extra-special experiences during their stay, including an exquisite 12-course tasting menu with wine pairings.
Garza Blanca Resort and Spa
Officially launching in October 2021, the Garza Blanca in Costa Mujeres, just north of Cancun, will be something to aspire to.
When finished, it will house 462 generous suites, ranging from the most petite at 600sq ft, right up to the largest penthouse, which is almost 6000 sq ft. Furnished in a classic modern style, with luxury bathrooms and private terraces, you’ll be left wanting for nothing.
The hotel will include access to 6 gourmet restaurants, some on-site and others at sister resort Villa del Palmar Cancun. Guests will also be able to use the gym and spa at the sister site. There will be six pools, including a gorgeous infinity pool blending right into the bright blue ocean beyond.
Nizuc Resort and Spa
Classy and calming are the perfect words to describe the Nizuc Resort and Spa at Punta Nizuc in Cancun. It’s only a 15-minute transfer from Cancun International Airport in an area far removed from Cancun’s party-vibe Hotel Zone.
On arrival, you’ll notice Nizuc’s striking Asian-Mexican architectural styles. Next, you’ll encounter the unforgettable fire-lit entrance, quickly followed by the minimalist interior. This hotel certainly makes an impression.
Each room has a personal butler, and there’s a sumptuous spa, fitness center, and a full itinerary of activities designed to relax and reinvigorate. The hotel also has two beaches, one of which offers paddle boards and kayaks to guests wanting to explore the surrounding ocean.
Beloved Playa Mujeres
For something a little more boutique-style, you can’t go wrong with Beloved Playa Mujeres. Set in 29 acres of landscaped tropical gardens, the hotel’s 109 appealing suites all have a jacuzzi tub either on the balcony or in-suite, as well as a range of luxurious extras that will make your stay unforgettable.
You’ll be encouraged to relax from the moment you arrive at Beloved. The bright and neutral décor inspires calm, and real thought has been put into the services on offer. If you’re looking to rekindle some romance, try the couple’s ritual in the Beloved Spa, or maybe schedule a private dinner on the beach.
