The Nizuc Resort and Spa in Cancun,Mexico,has been named one of the world’s top 5 beach hotels on Condé Nast Traveler’s 18th Annual “Hot List,” which highlights the best new hotels to debut in the last year.
“The Hot List is our annual round-up of the most exciting hotel openings in the world,” writes Condé Nast Traveler.
With just 33 locations chosen for this year’s list,CNN describes it as “the most selective ever,” compared to 154 properties that made the list in 2013.
The luxurious Nizuc resort opened in September of 2013 and is located less than 20 minutes from the Cancun International Airport,on the site of Mexico’s former presidential retreat (think Camp David),lending the grounds a private,exclusive feel. Cancun and the Riviera Maya have been topping travel trends this summer and the region is home to a variety of ancient archaeological sites,lush tropical jungles and the world’s second largest barrier reef.
“Book one of the eight penthouse suites,which have outdoor living rooms and Caribbean vistas,” writes Cynthia Rosenfeld for Condé Nast Traveler. “Views aside,there’s much more to love at this 274-room resort that meanders along 29 acres of the Riviera Maya.”
The name “Nizuc” literally translates to mean “dog nose” in Mayan,a name chosen for the shape of the nearby peninsula,which lies between Laguna Nichupté and the Caribbean Sea. The resort is located several miles from Cancun’s bustling Hotel Zone and offers guests a choice between 201 residential suites,44 ocean suites and 29 garden pool suites.
“Nizuc has several of those simple touches that make a stay that much more special,” writes Yahoo! Travel. “Whether it’s a golf cart to zip around the grounds or a sweet treat left after turndown service,they’ve thought of everything.”
Other special touches include L’Occitane products in the resort’s complimentary toiletry kits,private plunge pools,diverse global cuisine at six world-class restaurants,and wine that is made exclusively for the resort from Mexico’s very own Bodegas de Santo Tomas in the Guadalupe Valley,which is the oldest winery in the state of Baja California.
Guests may also opt to enjoy a private dinner either in-suite or at one of the resort’s exclusive outdoor settings,and wine pairing dinners as well as sushi and tequila night tastings are offered regularly. The Winik’s Kids Club offers a wide variety of activities for kids of all ages,while adults can also opt to participate in the resort’s world-class tennis program,or just relax in the first ESPA branded spa located on the Mexican Caribbean.
