Location Is Everything

The Kempinski Hotel Cancun is perfectly situated deep in the heart of the Cancun hotel zone, an area known as one of the safest stretches of land in all of Mexico. Only 25 minutes from the airport, guests are just moments away from luxury once their flight touches down in this Caribbean paradise.

Additionally, the Kempinski is located on the east coast of the hotel zone, with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea that are uninterrupted all the way to the horizon. The well-thought-out construction of this resort means no matter how lively a guest chooses to make their vacation, the escape to peace and relaxation is easily found on the balcony of the resort’s luxurious suites.

Dine Like Royalty

A backdrop as beautiful as the Caribbean is not normally outdone by food, but the Kempinski is home to the most delicious and innovative cuisine in all of Cancun. It has six world-class restaurants, of which each strives to be as outstanding as the last, and those with a taste for the finer things in life will be suitably impressed with the in-resort dining:

The culinary pedigree of the Mediterranean can be found in the fine-dining experience at Fantino. The atmosphere and cuisine provided to guests are of such a high standard that diners would be forgiven for thinking they’ve accidentally landed on the Amalfi coast of Italy.

The Club Grill

A perfect blend of gourmet food and atmospheric jazz piano is on offer at The Club Grill, both of which are bursting with artistic flair and personality. The service experience is only topped by the fantastically fresh local ingredients which go into every dish.


This restaurant offers one of the most romantic settings a guest could ever hope for, set on the beachfront of the resort with views across the turquoise blue waters. If guests time their reservation right, they can enjoy delicious, fresh Mexican seafood and grilled meat dishes while the moonlight dances across the Caribbean Sea.

El Café Mexicano

Choice is a luxury in and of itself, and the Kempinski delivers this at El Café Mexicano. The many mouthwatering classics of Mexican cuisine are on offer here, from hangover-busting chilaquiles to the Latin American favorite of tamales.

The buffet-style dining here also has many international options, and El Café Mexicano will certainly surprise those who normally shy away from buffets on account of quality. The food here doesn’t stray from the standards of its Kempinski sister restaurants.

The Caribe Bar & Grill

The great dining options aren’t just reserved for the evening meal, with The Caribe Bar & Grill providing all-day access to delicious light meals such as the local favorite of ceviche. On top of this, the perfectly crafted cocktails and soft sounds of the waves act as a perfect accompaniment to a relaxing day by the beach.


The amazing dining standards of the Kempinski Hotel Cancun don’t just apply to cuisine from the western hemisphere. Those with a taste for Japanese dining will find perfectly crafted sushi, nigiri, and sashimi on offer. Furthermore, the D-Lounge is home to a mesmerizing array of Tequilas and cocktails, all of which come together to complement the outstanding view across the Caribbean from the floor-to-ceiling windows.


Relaxation is a key ingredient to the experience at this outstanding resort, and the KAYANTÁ Spa surpasses even the highest expectation of service and comfort. The Mayan-inspired therapies make use of local indigenous ingredients, and the staff tailors each visitor’s treatment schedule to serve their needs best.

Furthermore, with so many fantastic dining options on offer, it’s important to stay in shape. This is a breeze to achieve in the state-of-the-art resort gym, which has a full suite of cardiovascular and weight-training equipment. And guests needn’t worry about being hidden away in a dark corner of the resort. The on-site gym is perfectly designed to glow with natural daylight on top of the Kempinski’s awe-inspiring trademark views of the Caribbean Sea.
