Unique Sleeps: Amazing hotels hand picked by Expedia Experts. The Beloved Hotel Playa Mujeres All Inclusive, Mexico.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always associated Cancun with college kids partying it up on Spring Break. That’s why I went on a quest to see if the northeast of Mexico could actually be done in a totally different way – with relaxation, escapism and indulgence in mind.
My search took me to The Beloved Hotel, Playa Mujeres, located roughly thirty minutes from Cancun Airport. This boutique luxury resort is an all inclusive hotel, and showed me a side of the region that was very different to the party town atmosphere Cancun is known for. With an open mind and an eagerness to soak in the Caribbean summer, I checked into an ocean view villa.
The rooms are welcomingly large, with a beachside influence that’s fresh and warm, with plenty of space for visitors to relax in their own suites. They’re designed to be lived in, rather than a typical hotel room designed just for sleeping. Each room is equipped with one of the most well-stocked mini bars I’ve ever seen – full, unopened bottles and plenty of snacks are at your disposal, along with 24 hour room service from a menu that rivals most hotel restaurants.
All suites come with standard televisions, appliances and work stations, but one major difference are the incredible bathrooms. The two person showers feature rainforest shower heads, with additional jets lining the walls in a space that begs for a long session at the end of a day of paddleboarding and swimming in the ocean. Guests are also treated to a selection of Bvlgari bathroom products.
Along with an extremely comfortable indoor Jacuzzi (with ocean view), some villas boast an outdoor plunge pool or private tub. Combine that with a cocktail and chips and guacamole, you can’t go wrong.
