Overview

The Riviera Maya Edition is on the Caribbean coastline of Mexico. It's a leader in sustainable luxury. This is the first resort of its kind to be built in Mexico. It sits on a 620-acre nature reserve. It also has two miles of pristine white sand beaches and lush mangrove forests. The resort is a perfect blend of modernity and the rich culture of the Yucatan Peninsula. It offers guests an enriching experience.

The Riviera Maya Edition is distinguished by its commitment to sustainable development. The resort is designed to reduce its ecological footprint and preserve the Kanai ecosystem. It is a testimony to respect for the ancient Mayan lands on which it sits. Moreover, the resort's architectural style reflects its natural surroundings. It also uses sustainable materials such as local bamboo and limestone.

This is more than just a place to go. This is a unique paradise. The Riviera Maya Edition at Kanai is a true testament to enjoying luxury. It does this while preserving a location's cultural and natural heritage. It is an oasis on Earth that provides luxury and a connection with nature.

Location

This resort is situated in the gated community of Kanai on a 620-acre plot of land. It is close to downtown Playa del Carmen and the Sian Ka'an Reserve. Moreover, it is only 40 minutes away from Cancun International Airport. This makes it a convenient destination for travelers from North America.

Services and Facilities

All hotel staff are eager to assist guests with their needs. This includes arranging restaurant reservations, booking activities, and airport car transfers. Room service is also available 24 hours a day. Plus the rooms are cleaned twice a day.

The Riviera Maya Edition is a vibrant seafood restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Moreover, the Maya deity Kukulkan, the god of air, wind, and creation, is a vast mural. It greets guests at the concierge desk. The cenote architecture of this property is also visible just beyond the seating area.

There is also a hanging plant installation, similar to the plants that grow in the freshwater swimming pools on the Yucatan Peninsula. However, the resort's main attraction is a large lagoon-style swimming pool. It looks directly at a palm-lined, sand-floored pathway leading to the ocean. Meeting spaces are also available.

Backstory

The resort was designed by collaborating with architecture and design companies. They were Rockwell Group Edmonds International and the Ian Schrager Company. They are both based in the area. The design is a tribute to the cenotes or freshwater limestone swimming pools found there. Its buildings create a ripple effect. This mimics the earthquake wave. An ancient asteroid created it. The asteroid caused a crater on the peninsula's west side when it struck Earth 66,000,000 years ago. Most structures were made with a mixture of Yucatecan lime and bamboo. They blend in with the 400-year-old mangrove forest.

Rooms

There are 182 beautiful guest rooms and suites. The Sky Villa is the largest penthouse in North America, with unmatched luxury and breathtaking views. Every space in the resort also provides guests with breathtaking views of the ocean or lush mangrove forest.

Moreover, the private plunge pools and terraces of select rooms and suites will enhance your experience. They will allow you to feel closer to the beauty of the surrounding area. The interiors also pay homage and respect to the region's rich cultural history.

Dining

The food and beverage offerings here are very unique. A kitchen is just outside the lobby. There, guests can enjoy breakfasts like Cochinita. That is a suckling pork spiced with sour achiote and orange. You can also have Sopes Con Huevo. That is an egg in a tortilla, with Yucatecan Sikil Pak Sauce and fresh leaves of Hoja Santa. Moreover, the pool bar serves a selection of fresh juices and salads as well as hummus plates. The fine dining restaurant is the center of the culinary offering. Two world-famous Mexican chefs run the restaurant.

Francisco "Paco" Ruano is in charge of the signature restaurant Ki'is. Ki'is is Maya for zest. The rotating tasting menu includes items such as a New York steak or a salad made entirely of local ingredients. Tomas Bermudez is behind So'ol. This is an outdoor eatery with a view of the Caribbean. It is perfect for Mezcal cocktails and fresh seafood.

Spa and Wellness

The resort spa is also a great place to see the cenote-inspired architecture of this resort. The curving corridors connect the pools with a Turkish Hammam and rooms for infrared treatment capsules. Moreover, the six treatment rooms are named after white local flowers, such as pasiflora and morning glory. This spa also offers a selection of body treatments and massages.

The Riviera Maya Edition is a haven for relaxation and wellness. The SO'OL Beach Club also offers a lagoon-sized pool or infinity edge pool. Here, guests can relax and soak up the sun.
