Punta Maroma, Mexico
This Mexican beach hotel (the sister resort to Chablé Yucatán) offers thatched roofs and hanging daybeds, forecasting a haute castaway existence with stretches of private beach. More than 70 newly-built casitas made from local stone and wood adhere to the deeply-rooted Mayan tradition, blending indoor and outdoor space with sliding wooden doors. The atmosphere attracts all types of guests, including those who enjoy a six-course tasting menu and the more adventurous that opt for a two-hour sweat session led by a shaman.
While seemingly rustic, rooms come with free Wifi and are air-conditioned, plus the minibar is complimentary. Other amenities include two pools onsite, a 17,000-square-foot spa with hammam specializing in treatments inspired by ancient Mayan rituals. Three different restaurants offer fine dining and more casual fair, but expect locally-harvested ingredients such as fresh fish, flatbreads, clams and octopus tacos. Guests looking beyond relaxing will find plenty of opportunity for snorkeling, diving, fishing, hiking, sailing, jungle-trekking and more. Chablé Maroma serves as a compromise between travelers that seek both luxury and adventure.
