5 Best Five Star Luxury Resorts in Cancun

5 Best Five Star Luxury Resorts in Cancun

Mexico is ranked as the fifth largest country in the Americas. One way to experience the best that this Caribbean region has to offer is by visiting Cancun. Certainly one of the most beautiful parts of Mexico.

No matter what time of the year you visit Cancun, you are always going to enjoy warm weather while you lounge on the sprawling beaches.

Upon touching down at the Cancún International Airport, your luxury vacation begins. Awaiting your arrival and ready to pick you up is your luxury transport, the Cancun Airport Transfers by eTransfers. As you hop in and the chauffeur drives you away from the airport, you have a wealth of five-star accommodation options to choose from, if you haven't beforehand. Listed below are five of the best five star luxury resorts in Cancun.

The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun

This 365-room luxury hotel with classic style is set in Cancun's Hotel Zone against a pristine beach and turquoise Caribbean waters. Room decor is elegant and traditional, if also slightly corporate and dated, and all rooms have ocean views. The resort's romantic and luxurious vibe is ideal for couples looking to splurge. While the resort is undeniably grand, it's surprisingly unstuffy and young within the halls, out by the pool, and down by the beach (though some may feel interiors could use an update). This hotel may have typical resort features, but you'll be hard-pressed to find them done with such classy sophistication elsewhere in Cancun.

Le Blanc Spa and Resort

There is nothing ordinary about the 260-room Le Blanc Spa Resort: Everything from the wine lists to your workout has been tailored to be top notch. It feels more South Beach chic than Cancun party, with a hip, gorgeous aesthetic throughout the entire pristine white property. The rooms are thoroughly modern and bright with minimalist decor and stunning ocean views (some with large Jacuzzi baths). But most of your time should be spent experiencing the top-of-the line spa, the chic restaurants (especially the stunningly designed Lumiere), and heavenly white-sand beach.

Nizuc Resort & Spa

The Nizuc Resort & Spa is in a secluded location with sweeping views of the sea. Each guest room includes a bathroom equipped with a relaxing rainfall shower and a comfortable bathtub. The rooms contain a flatscreen TV and high-end coffee makers.

When you venture out of your room you will be able to use the resort’s outdoor pool and even relax on a private dock. In addition, at the on-site spa, you can participate in the Nizuc Thermal Experience, where hydrotherapy and other treatments are administered. The resort also includes a variety of six restaurants. These restaurants serve cuisines such as Asian, Mexican, Mediterranean, and Peruvian. You can even request a tour of the resort’s facilities if you wish. But if you'll like to leave your hotel to explore Cancun at anytime, you can hire a city Cancun car rental for your one-day or two-day luxury getaway and exploration.

Zoetry Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres

With beachfront rooms, you will have an amazing view of Cancun when you stay at the Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres. The property boasts guest rooms with stone Tikul floors, marble mats, and even vault ceilings. Guest room bathrooms are equipped with a shower, spa bathtub, and hairdryer. A complimentary robe is included in each bathroom. Every day during your stay, you will be treated to fresh fruit and sparkling wine by the bottle. You will also receive complimentary maid service three times each day.

The onsite restaurant, Casa Rolandi, specializes in the cuisine of Swiss-Northern Italian. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner at the restaurant. Every day there is a new tasting menu consisting of seven courses and a wide variety of drinks to pair with them.

If you want to pack some action into your stay, you can arrange to participate in various water sports. For a more relaxing experience though, you can participate in the hotel’s Wellness Programme, or experience its Thalasso Therapy. Therapeutic showers and terrace hot tubs are also included in your stay.

TRS Coral Hotel

The luxury TRS Coral is an adults-only, all-inclusive property with 469 chic rooms, all with either hydro-therapy tubs or swim-up access. It’s situated on a wide stretch of white sand beach in Playa Mujeres, a relatively quiet resort area north of Cancun’s busy Hotel Zone. Highlights of a luxury stay at the TRS Coral hotel include a generous all-inclusive plan with free food and drinks at multiple bars, buffets, and a la carte restaurants plus round-the-clock room service. Additionally, visitors also get a chance to experience a free night at Chic Cabaret, for amazing performances and gourmet multi-course meals. Guests of TRS Coral also get access to the facilities at the family-friendly Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa next door, where the Zentropia wellness center — with a spa, hydrotherapy circuit, and a great gym — is located.
