According to W Hotels Worldwide,the new W Retreat & Spa Kanai will open as the centerpiece of the Kanai Resort,a luxury beachfront community that is located in Mexico's stunning Riviera Maya and will include several hotels and an exclusive beach club. Perched along the lush eastern coastline of the Yucatan Peninsula,the new Retreat will have 180 guest rooms and is the vision of world-renowned architect Richard Meier.
In a recent announcement Eva Ziegler,who is the global brand leader for W Hotels Worldwide and Le Meridien,he states,"We are excited to further expand W's exclusive retreat portfolio with W Retreat & Spa Kanai - Riviera Maya,another fantastic location for the global jetsetters to escape and play when the hustle and bustle of the city gets to be too much."
Also of note,Meier has designed W Kanai to seemingly "float" upon an endless expanse of mangroves that is backed by the never ending vista of the sky and sea. The structures are designed to meld with the landscape,with endless gardens,pools and waterways interconnecting with stunning terraces and walkways that effortlessly bring the Retreat's indoor and outdoor areas together. All of the rooms will have impressive ocean views and are being designed by the New York-based Meyer Davis Studio. The W Kanai's interior living areas will be connected to a furnished outdoor deck that is complete with a cocktail bar,tub and shower that is concealed by a retractable privacy screen.
The entire Kanai Resport will feature more than 600 rooms on 135 acres of land,which includes more than an entire mile of secluded beach front property. "Designed by legendary architect,Richard Meier,we know that this landmark site presented the perfect opportunity to create one of the best W Retreats in the world," said Abraham Metta and Fredy Helfon,partners and developers of ALHEL and GIM Desarrollos,owners of the Kanai Resort.
Situated less than 25 miles from the Cancun International Airport and just six miles from Playa del Carmen,the W Retreat & Spa Kanai in Mexico's Riviera Maya real estate promises to deliver an exceptionally luxurious lifestyle experience,including W's signature Away Spa and other wellness activities in its more than 10,500 square feet of treatment space. In addition,the facility will feature 7,500 square feet of event space,perfect for weddings,meetings and a variety of other special events.
