Playa Del Carmen, Quintana Roo, México
The St. Regis Kanai Resort, Riviera Maya
What it is
A new modernist mainstay on 620 pristine waterfront acres, with 124 guest rooms within the curved architecture and a St. Regis spa with Mayan-inspired treatments.
What it isn't
Hangry. 8 bar and dining options on-site include everything from poolside favorites to Toro, helmed by Chef Richard Sandoval.
What we think
St. Regis’ legendary butler service awaits each and every guest here at their new, jaw-dropping Riviera Maya resort…but it’s only the beginning of the pampering. Each and every guest room is a transfixing retreat, thanks to floor to ceiling glass walls, private terraces, luxe touches (such as Frette linens and marble-lined bathrooms) and enormous floor plans that begin at a whopping 595 square feet. We love the Grand Luxe room option for their private plunge pools; the Caroline Astor Suite is worthy of the grande dame with its 1,711 square foot floor plan, deep egg shaped soaking tubs and expansive plunge pool on the patio. While you’re here, don’t miss the star-inspired cocktails at the St. Regis Bar and the truffle fries at Jack’s Club.
You're here because
You came to maximize your R&R, so you’re happy to see there is a vast pool area featuring two adult pools as well as a family one and AC-equipped luxury pool cabanas with butler service. And for those looking for more tranquility – an adults-only pool and beach club.
Locally-inspired spas are a notch more relaxing than standard-issue ones, so you’re delighted by the treatment offerings here—especially when your “sky bath” begins, complete with plucked flowers chosen for their ancient Mayan botanical lore.
