Riviera Maya's Most Intimate Villa Resort and Spa Experience
Hidden in a small village of Playa Xcalacoco just outside Playa del Carmen, along the pearlescent sands of the Riviera Maya, Viceroy, formerly The Tides Riviera Maya, is a seaside refuge extending deep into the primitive Maya tropical forest. The 41-villa Mexico Luxury resort and its stunning spa present the epitome of Maya Riviera beach unpretentious luxury, exuding the ambience of an exclusive private Playa del Carmen villa or opulent residential compound.
Touted as "a sexy, eco-conscious hideaway in the jungle" by Travel + Leisure magazine, our Riviera Maya resort's design respects and accentuates the pristine qualities of its dramatic jungle and seaside setting. Intimate and serene features blend seamlessly into the dense tropical foliage, dining is available both indoors and outdoors, and yoga classes and spa treatments overlook coastal splendor.
Guests are personally welcomed upon arrival to our Playa del Carmen resort and led through the tropical forest paths to their villa. The palapa-roofed, stucco bohíos, or villas, are decorated with an eye to the sophisticated simplicity of Maya aesthetics, utilizing natural materials throughout: louvered-mahogany doors and windows, sisal rugs, and canopy beds with hand-stitched Egyptian cotton linens. Bath areas are especially spacious with indoor and outdoor showers and his-and-hers sinks and closets.
Viceroy Riviera Maya is thrilled to announce that five Villas are being renovated to recreate the perfect room product to enhance the stunning intimate resort. The project is anticipated to be complete by the end of September 2013. As always, the priority of the resort team will be to ensure the ultimate experience for our guests and minimize any impact on their experience. Work will be limited to daytime hours only and confined to the one area where the Villas are clustered, in a non-visible area of the property. The renovated villas will offer more accommodation options for our guests, and are located in the celebrated jungle setting that distinguishes our award-winning resort
