Whether you're hoping to rekindle your romance, spend quality time as a family or ignite your passion for adventure, Mexico is the destination that well and truly has it all...
Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa
From sunrise to sunset, this hidden enclave provides a menu of experiences to ensure every day in Mexico is one to remember. After rising from your king-size bed to the sound of the waves, head out to explore the flora and fauna of the jungle by bicycle, before stopping to savour breakfast alfresco. There's plenty more food-fuelled experiences to test your taste buds too, including lively cooking lessons, a traditional K'áak' barbecue evening and the indulgent Mayan chocolate experience.
No luxury holiday to Mexico is complete without uncovering the rich history of the country. The Mayan ruins of Tulum are the third most-visited historical site in Mexico, meaning it's often bustling with tourists. However, visiting after hours with Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is the perfect way to not only view and photograph the ruins undisturbed, but to experience the peaceful, old-world ambience of this once Mayan fortress.
When it's time to switch off, the heavenly Kinan Spa is waiting, complete with seven treatment rooms, wellness circuit and healthy bar, Cilantro. Indulge with a choice of rituals and therapies which utilise indigenous ingredients and ancient techniques - including salt from the Yucatan town of Celestún and honey from the resort's Mayan Beehive - to leave your mind and body feeling unmistakably refreshed.
NIZUC Resort & Spa
While you're only 15 minutes from Cancun Airport, arriving at this contemporary bolthole feels a world away from the everyday. Designed by Mexican architect Alejandro Escudero, framing Caribbean vistas with large-scale style, this is nothing short of perfection when it comes to luxury in Mexico.
Surrounded by jungle, mangroves and two exclusive beaches, you'll find plenty to keep you busy amongst the wilderness. Located on the world's second-largest reef, it's unsurprising that watersports are super popular; from paddleboard yoga to snorkelling, make time to relish the warm waters and view the magical marine life. If you'd prefer to stay on land, work up a sweat with a choice of fitness classes - including spinning and Zumba - or improve your swing in the sunshine at the tennis clinic.

You're sure to work up a healthy appetite during your adventure-filled days, but with six world-class restaurants to choose from, you'll never be hungry for long! From the local produce and spices that infuse the authentic dishes served at Ramona, to the tantalizing taste of the Peruvian menu at Ni, and wood-fired, Mediterranean specialities at Terra Nostra, take your palate on a journey around the world as you sample fresh, flavoursome cuisine from every corner of the globe.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya
Divided into three exclusive zones - Grand Class for romance, Ambassador for families, and Zen Grand for the ultimate relaxation - every type of traveller can discover their paradise at Grand Velas Riviera Maya.
While every suite will spoil guests with a private terrace and plunge pool, outside of your accommodation, you'll find an explorer's dream; miles of sandy beach, mangroves and rich Mayan jungle. Once you've meditated in the shaded gardens, shook up a storm in a cocktail class and captured incredible memories with a photography lesson, venture out for a visit to the UNESCO recognised Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Learn more about the nature and ecosystems and watch tropical birds flying overhead, before taking a refreshing dip in one of the sacred cenotes.
In its mission to stand at the very height of luxury, the resort has also reinvented all-inclusive with its Beyond All-Inclusive concept, meaning you can expect every whim and detail to be catered to, with no extra cost. Unwind in the SE Spa with a tailor-made wellness experience, make time for romance with special moments organised by the Romance Concierge, and dine at award-winning restaurants accompanied by fine wines courtesy of the renowned sommelier service - they really have thought of everything!
Banyan Tree Mayakoba
Where nature, luxury and warm hospitality meet, the secluded Asian sanctuary of Banyan Tree Mayakoba blends harmoniously with the surrounding waterways, jungle and powder-white sands of the Riviera Maya coastline.
With the Great Mayan Reef on the doorstep - home to over 66 types of coral and over 500 species of fish - it's unsurprising water-based activities abound here. Whether it's snorkelling to spot seahorses and stingray, scuba diving through two of the world's longest underwater cave systems or swimming with sea turtles, these crystal-clear waters provide delights for all ages and abilities. The summer months bring the opportunity to join the conservation team as they release baby turtles into the ocean, just one of the many sustainability efforts of this forward-thinking resort.
For a touch of romance, spend an evening with your loved one dining on the resort's traditional dining boat, Ixchel - meaning 'Moon Goddess' - and sample a fusion of local and international cuisine as you drift slowly along the canal amongst the Mayakoban mangroves. Hoping to plan something even more spectacular? The resort's Romance Consultant can arrange whatever you require, from an undisturbed dinner with a hand-crafted menu, to a perfectly planned proposal with a photographer on-hand to capture the picture-perfect moment.
