The winning Mandarin formula—exemplary service, forward-reaching design, a first-rate spa—has taken root in a pristine Mexican coastal environment. Acres of mangrove forest, including an on-site cenote, surround a lovely—albeit small—stretch of powdery sand. The 128 boxy white villas give beach chic new meaning, with polished stone floors, rough limestone walls, spare four-poster beds, and sculptures by prominent Mexican artists. We’ll admit, we did experience a bit of sticker shock at checkout. But it’s worth it. This is the most sophisticated resort on Mexico’s eastern coast.

Room to Book:

The Grand Selva Suites and Beachfront Casitas have private pools.

Insider Tip:

Experience a traditional Mayan Temazcal ritual, guided by a Mayan Shaman, at the Spa at the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya. The ancient ceremonies promote spiritual and physical healing though aromatic steam heat therapy and “energy alignment sessions.”
