Lulled by the silence of the rainforest and the soft waves of the Caribbean Sea, La Casa de la Playa, a Riviera Maya boutique hotel by Grupo Xcaret, has all the makings of the ultimate bucket-list destination. With its sustainable-luxury approach, called Exclusively Your Way, the hotel surprises with tailor-made experiences that offer knowledge and memories that will last a lifetime.
Xcaret, in Mexico’s sunny Riviera Maya, has been hailed as one of the country’s most beautiful enclaves, a vision of white-sand beaches, ancient ruins and endless opportunities for indulgence and adventure. At the heart of this scenic corridor, La Casa de la Playa woos sunseekers with 63 suites, each with spectacular ocean views or direct access to the beach, world-class restaurants by celebrity chefs, private round-trip transportation to the airport in luxury cars or SUVs.
From any place inside La Casa de la Playa, guests will feel as if they have stepped inside a museum that pays homage to the most representative and characteristic aspects of Mexican history. Each suite features a jellyfish habitat, Mexican handcrafts, amenities full of tradition and private terraces with pools, hammocks, and other relaxing furnishings.
The eco-integrating architecture of La Casa de la Playa merges in an original way with the surroundings, achieving a unique balance between aesthetics and ethics. Fascinating spaces – such as an impressive infinity pool with a 40m swimming lane that stretches over the sea –will make guests feel a rare connection with Mother Nature.
Creating this sense of place comes naturally to the makers of La Casa de la Playa. Owned and operated by Grupo Xcaret – the ecotourism development firm behind the awe-inspiring Xcaret Park, a unique nature and culture themed park near Playa del Carmen – La Casa de la Playa was born using nature as the essential element to conserve and protect it, making the hotel an excellent choice for visitors who prefer to keep their environmental footprint light.
The dining experiences at La Casa de la Playa are an expression of creative passion headed by a star-studded culinary collection of chefs, including Martha Ortiz, Virgilio Martínez and the Rivera Río brothers. Whether you’re sampling the locally inflected fare at Tuch de Luna, indulging in inventive Peruvian-Mexican fusion dishes at Estero, or tucking into corn-centric food inspired by the traditions of the Mexican south at Centli, dining at La Casa de la Playa is always a delicious adventure. For a more intimate experience, guests are invited to book a private dinner in a cenote scored by live jazz music. Other dining experiences that promise extraordinary moments are Cava, with a wide selection of domestic and international wines; Bodega, where tequila and mezcal are the stars of the show; Chocolatería, a chocolate boutique; and the cosmopolitan mixology of Sky Bar, the most spectacular rooftop in town.
Beyond food, guests will find opportunities for authentic Mexican adventure just outside their door. From an exhilarating day spent caving in the recently discovered caverns of Xpeleo and a journey through a labyrinth of mangroves, to partaking in a Mayan purification ceremony at Xel-Há, every day as a La Casa de la Playa guest promises a fresh new perspective on this fascinating part of the world.
La Casa de la Playa is a place where the ocean sings, where the sky lights up, the rainforest reveals itself, and the earth hides its secrets. Where everything is as it should be. Dive into a Mexican paradise you won’t soon forget.
