Who wouldn't fall in love in/with a private plunge pool?
Readers called La Casa Que Canta—also known as The House that Sings—a “small paradise.” And it’s easy to see how this luxury property earned the distinction of being the most romantic hotel on Earth. Even from its secluded perch above La Ropa beach on Mexico’s Zihuatanejo Bay, La Casa Que Canta has charmed travelers from across the planet. With Pacific waves crashing against the saltwater pool and terra cotta rooms filled with handcrafted wood furniture, we think you’ll probably fall in love, too.
Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe—to share their opinions on the top hotels and resorts, cities, islands, cruise lines, spas, airlines, and more. They rated hotels and resorts for a number of superlatives, including romance. And no property made sparks fly quite like the intimate, 25-room La Casa Que Canta.
Thoughtful, “genuinely warm and helpful” staff members are known for anticipating your needs and helping you at every turn—sometimes without been seen at all. If it weren’t for the newly turned-down bed or fresh-cut flowers in your suite, you may think it’s just you and your significant other whiling away the afternoon from a private plunge pool or woven hammock.
This hotel knows how to treat guests right, which is why it’s one of the world’s most romantic getaways. But it’s not all sunning and margarita-sipping at La Casa Que Canta. Guests are invited to enjoy more than a dozen complimentary activities, including horseback riding, snorkeling, and yoga.
