The Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort is a monument to the finer things in life – and these pictures showcase why there are very few places on Earth that can match it for sheer luxury.
Winning a Readers’ Choice Award is a sure sign of real customer satisfaction, so take a bow, Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort, for coming out on top in a recent Condé Nast Traveller poll of the top resorts in Mexico.
A Colonial-Style Resort On 13 Luxuriant Acres
The Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort is an all-inclusive, adults-only, 4.5-star hotel just minutes from Playacar Golf Club and Playa del Carmen, the pulsating beach town of the Riviera Maya.
The elegant colonial-style resort is set on 13 acres of verdant land, and has a captivating balance of sumptuous beach-chic and natural terrain.
The resort’s 200 air-conditioned rooms feature super-lean, flat-screen televisions, and docking stations for smartphones. Private bathrooms have separate baths and showers, and come with designer toiletries. If you wish for the ultimate in lazy-day luxury, you can even engage the services of your own private butler.
The Honeymoon Suite is 118sqm of splendour across two storeys. On the ground floor is a dining room, living room, and balcony. On the top floor is a bathroom, king-size bed, and a large terrace with lounge chairs and hammock overlooking the leafy gardens.
There are six superb restaurants at the Royal Hideaway Playacar Resort. From the AAA Four Diamond Azia (Japanese, Thai, and other Asian gourmet food) and Spices (Mexican-inspired specialities, including fresh seafood) to Palazzo (traditional Italian dishes overseen with master chef experience) and Las Ventanas (featuring the hotel’s signature fine dining menu, which includes an array of molecular cuisine), there is a terrific balance of world fare and aromas.
By night, residents dress up (elegant/elegant-casual) according to the restaurant they choose to dine in, and clink a glass or two with friends old and new. By day, the resort’s social focus revolves around the tranquil, palm-bordered infinity pool and the calm ocean-front solarium deck. Water activities include kayaking, surfing, and snorkeling.
