Located on the site of a former Mexican presidential retreat, the 29-acre luxury resort—which officially debuted in September 2013—nestles along a secluded stretch of coastline just 20 minutes south of Cancún. But why go into town? Nizuc’s six restaurants serve up an international sampler platter, from contemporary Mexican fare to Asian fusion, while the beachfront Bar A-Kan, one of three resort lounges, offers one of the region’s largest tequila and mezcal collections. Adventurous travelers will enjoy guided sunrise paddleboarding, snorkeling above the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, or kayaking through the mangroves that front part of the property, while kids can frolic on the private family beach or indulge their artistic sides with cooking classes and crafts. Just want to relax? With 274 suites spread through three separate residential areas, there’s space for everyone—plus an adults-only beach and a 30,000-square-foot spa.
