This hotel, halfway between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, used to be owned by an Italian duchess. A sense of elegance still remains today, under new owner Kevin Wendle. The 29 rooms (which include a pair of two-room villas), each with a private pool, are often occupied by the Hollywood and fashion set—you never know who will be in the beach cabana next to yours. Rooms here are pricier than you’ll find in Tulum, but the amenities are unbeatable: there’s coffee and pastries delivered to your room every morning, afternoon tea, and yoga sessions, all included in the price. The hotel has two restaurants, two pools, and a wonderful spa that even offers a chocolate massage for children. And the incredibly attentive staff intuitively predict your needs, whether it’s a margarita by the beach, a cart for your bags by your rooms five minutes before checkout, or ice-cold bottles of water for the road.
