In the hotel world lexicon, Viceroy and sexy are synonymous, as guests will quickly discover when staying at this Riviera Maya outpost. The resort is embraced by a white sand beach on one side and tropical forest on the other, creating a sanctuary for its 41 villas. Nature paths lead to the accommodations, which feature natural materials, Mayan design principles and luxury details such as plunge pools, hand-carved stone dining tables and hand-crocheted hammocks. The lagoon pool features tropical butlers who deliver iced face towels, while the seaside Wayak Spa offers such unique experiences as a traditional Temazcal steam and healing herb purification ceremony. For dining, guests can choose from two venues serving prime steaks and responsibly caught seafood. On-site activities are designed for exclusivity, from yoga classes overlooking the water to tequila and ceviche tastings, and area activities include swimming with dolphins, deep sea fishing and horseback riding.
