A Luxury Escape at Viceroy Riviera Maya

In Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Stayby Suzanne KochLeave a Comment

Along sandy white shores in the lush rainforest, Viceroy Riviera Maya offers a secluded stay with irresistible amenities.


With just 41 residential-style private villas, guests here can really get away. All accommodations feature a completely private patio, plunge pool, outdoor shower, handmade crochet hammock and high-ceiling thatched-roof palapa. Villa locations range from the oceanfront to the jungle, spanning from 1,000 up to 2,900 square feet in size.


With nearly no need to leave your private sanctuary, guests will be treated to even more amenities if they do. Dining options at La Marea feature traditional Mexican dishes by Chef Carlos Zamora who adds his personal flair, using techniques taken from traditions found in Barcelona, Los Cabos, Veracruz and Cancun. Sip cocktails and enjoy the ocean breeze at the adjoining Library lounge. The all-day restaurant Coral Grill + Bar offers alfresco dining with the focus on fresh seafood and local ingredients.

Guests can jump in the kitchen themselves with offered culinary experiences like guacamole and margarita lessons, tequila and ceviche tastings, a tamale cooking class, mixology lessons and more.


Unwind at WAYAK, the full-service spa offering ancient Mayan traditions. The extensive menu includes massages, facials, body treatments and energy therapies using local ingredients. Treatment rooms overlook waterfalls and highlight the sound of water. There’s even a traditional Temazcal sweat lodge. A fitness center is available to work up a sweat while a variety of yoga classes — including Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Chakra — among other programs are offered.


Other notable resort features include the hotel’s 500-bottle wine cellar stocked with selections from boutique Mexican wineries; the property’s Soap Concierge, which stops by your room post-arrival to curate handmade soaps using ancient traditions and regional ingredients; the resort’s private pier; a resort pool; and plenty of nearby attractions like archaeological sites and shopping.
