As a promise to our clients at Epperly Travel, our team is always on the lookout for the latest and greatest when it comes to the luxury travel scene. This is exactly why we chose Cancun to be our company trip of the year (it had nothing to do with the tacos and margaritas!). For those of you who love a solid four and five star hotel experience, whether it’s all inclusive or not, Eastern Mexico is brimming with new properties that absolutely need to be on your travel radar (and if you have worries about Mexico overall, please check out our post addressing the most frequent concerns we hear about this destination.)
Here’s a rundown of our favorite new (and updated!) hotels in Cancun and Riviera Maya. Don’t forget, Epperly Travel’s services are designed to match you to the right spot – or you can work with our team on a hotel you’ve already got picked out. Either way, we’ll be able to add an awesome value (hello amenities and relationships to leverage – we made lots of friends amongst the sales and management teams) at each of the properties listed below!
We adore the Andaz brand for all that it’s doing to appeal to a new, modern traveler. From Casa Amante, the gorgeous upscale restaurant designed to mirror a Latin home (enjoy dinner one night in the library and another night in the courtyard and you’ll feel like you’re at two different venues!) to their brand new beach club, Andaz is all about creating a unique experience for guests seeking a unique vibe without feeling overly trendy. Ask us about their all inclusive add on!
The best of the best when it comes to five star hotels in the Riviera Maya area, the Rosewood Mayakoba is one of our closest partners in the area. What makes it new and updated? The brand new adults only beach club, Aquí Me Quedo, literally translates to “Here I Stay,” which is exactly what you’ll want to do. Bringing the kiddos along? The Rosewood experience for families as as excellent as it is for couples only. Your kids can experience everything from EcoBingo to Scavenger Hunts to Mayan Storytelling, bringing in a sense of place and educational experience to their vacation in this tropical paradise.
This brand new gem of a property is exclusive to ages 16+, but the brand is soon to open a family-friendly section in the upcoming months. In the meantime, keep an eye on this newcomer as one of the most intriguing brands to the all inclusive scene that we’ve seen in a while. Focused on a sense of place that incorporates the Mexican art scene and built with the modern traveler in mind, this property takes the idea of a traditional all inclusive and turns it on its head.
Speaking of all inclusive concepts that challenge the traditional notions, Unico came to the scene with a fascinating and new concept: activities, spa and more included. Guests simply have to pay the taxes and gratuities. What’s the catch? There truly is not one. This special, adults only property is a catch.
This brand new adults only all inclusive is the first of its kind for the Hipotels Brand. A member of Preferred Hotels, their dedication to the dining experience is unprecedented for the price.
This tried and true high-end all inclusive favorite is back and better than ever after a multi-million dollar renovation.
We just adore what the Hyatt brand has done in the all inclusive realm and the Hyatt Ziva Cancun is no exception. This family friendly getaway is a fan favorite of our clients and, after seeing it firsthand (and being WOWED by their level of customer service!) We’re raving fans, as well.
This brand new family friendly spot in the up-and-coming Costa Maya region is excellent for families and couples alike (there’s an adults only hotel with in a hotel experience). It’s great for families seeking a wide array of activities and room to spread out: the resort is huge and even has a boat system to help guests get around from one place to another.
Are these spots enough to pique your interest in Cancun? The craziest part: this is not even all that we saw, nor all that is out there. This area is so rich in tourism, which is what makes it an excellent value (sheer competition and number of hotel rooms available drives down the price, not to mention the overall lower price point of Mexico in general).
Our team’s ability to get to know your needs and match you to the right resort experience will be your best asset. Or, as mentioned above, even if you already have your property picked out, we’ll be able to add some value in our level of service and connections. So what’s the hold up?
