All-Inclusive Meets Modern Luxury at Royalton Riviera Cancun

Lifestyle Travel

Modern luxury is redefining our homes, work spaces, automobiles, and now even the resorts we visit. For the perfect combination of modern luxury and Mexico’s desirable Cancun, the Royalton Riviera Cancun presents a new generation of all-inclusive hotels. In the past, hotels dubbed as “all-inclusive” have always carried the stigma of not meeting high accommodation standards. But more and more, we’re seeing resorts like the Royalton Riviera Cancun focus on those luxurious details that so many in the all-inclusive market just simply miss; and they’re doing it in the most carefree and elegant way possible, creating a truly relaxing ambience.

Royalton Riviera Cancun offers three different vacation styles including the Royalton Resort, a luxury vacation with family-friendly resort activities, the Diamond Club section, packed with luxury amenities, and the Hideaway, an adults-only resort within a resort. The Diamond Club upgrade includes luxury amenities such as butler service, preferred room locations, access to the Diamond Club lounge, and the exclusive Diamond Clubbeach area with waiter service. But overall, one of the first things you’ll notice upon entering the resort is the upscale, contemporary décor which endeavors to immerse guests in a luxe environment the minute they arrive. This philosophy extends to accommodations as well, inside incredibly spacious rooms which are brimming with natural light.

 One of the highlights of this “all-in luxury” resort is the Royal Spa. Ideal for a day of relaxation, the spa is a vacation staple, one that embodies a lotus flower-empowered philosophy, supporting positivity and purity of the body in combination with wellness and renewal. The spa services include massages, facials, and body treatments along with already available in-suite rain showers and soaker tubs. The diverse array of massages and facials are designed to accommodate relaxation at all levels from the standard Swedish massage, the athlete’s perfect athletic massage, detox-ready body-cleansing massage, innovative thermal energy and aromatic massages, and the royal samunprai massage––a long-standing massage for Thai soldiers.

Royalton Riviera CancunRoyalton Riviera Cancun’s entertainment options accommodate all ages, whether a preference to enjoy paradise by one of the many-featured pools, including Riviera’s infinity pool, or with family at the splash park which has tree and safari-inspired water slides and lily pad waterfalls. With a plethora of pools to choose from, swim-up bars and beach bars make for the perfect daytime activities and lounge bars for the perfect evening. And for those with a tennis bucket list, checking off courts played around the world, the resort’s tennis courts are the perfect locale. Here, instructors are not only available for lessons but for matches as well, offering the player’s preferred level of difficulty.

 Modern luxury embodies authentic, high-end cuisine and Royalton Riviera Cancun provides just that with restaurant options ranging from an international buffet to Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Caribbean, and Mediterranean to the steakhouse experience of Hunter Steakhouse. The steakhouse’s on-site sommelier is available to suggest a pairing from the Cava Wine Cellar, and an open kitchen allows for a front-row seat to cuisine preparations.

 Among its efforts to bring all-inclusive and modern luxury together, Royalton Riviera Cancun  dedicates its facilities to providing guests with a wellness outlet with Life Fitness. As the largest Life Fitness facility in Latin America, they offer assistance with on-site fitness instructors at no additional cost. In addition, water activities provide the perfect option for taking your cardio outdoors and guests can partake in either snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, or paddleboarding. Excursions also include ocean adventures such as scuba diving and deep-sea fishing or jet set on yacht excursions. Because after all, the real luxuries await on the white-sand coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.
