Viceroy Riviera Maya lies between a pristine stretch of sand and a primitive tropical forest in a small village of Playa Xcalacoco just outside Playa del Carmen. This luxury boutique was carefully designed to respect and accentuate the unique surroundings. Its 41 exclusive villas have been designed to blend in with the lush vegetation, and use eco-friendly materials and building methods that echo traditional Mayan aesthetics.
Upon arrival, guests are personally welcomed and led through the tropical forest paths to their villa. The palapa-roofed, stucco bohíos, or villas, are decorated with an eye to the sophisticated simplicity of Maya aesthetics, utilizing natural materials throughout: louvered-mahogany doors and windows, sisal rugs, and canopy beds with hand-stitched Egyptian cotton linens. Bath areas are especially spacious with indoor and outdoor showers and his-and-hers sinks and closets.
Guests can take advantage of Viceroy Riviera Maya boutique hotel’s exclusive Spa & Wellness centre, which offers numerous massage, facials, body treatments and body wraps. The hotel also offers traditional Mayan rituals and ceremonies for a purifying and cleansing experience for mind and body.
Should guests wish to indulge in sightseeing or other more strenuous activities, Viceroy Riviera Maya boutique hotel is perfectly situated to explore the Yucatan peninsula, with its Mayan sites, including Chichen Itzá and Tulum, while there is an almost endless list of water sports available on the property or nearby, including diving, snorkelling, swimming with dolphins, windsurfing and parasailing.
