Pleasure for all the senses
Paraíso la Bonita provides a safe port for setting down on dry land after sailing over the transparent waters of the Caribbean. Nestled amidst the fine white sands of Petempich Bay, Cancún, this refuge caresses the senses of its guests.
Surrounded by tropical jungle, mangroves and a bird sanctuary, at first glance it appears to be a unique mirage that combines the elegance of traditional Mexican architecture with that of the Mayan culture.
Its suites are the dream of international travelers who have high expectations for pleasure and relaxation. Each is of a unique design that embraces characteristics of the warm cultures of the Caribbean, Mediterranean, India, Africa and Bali, with beautiful marble floors and sweet-scented cedar ceilings.
There is a spacious living area next to the bedroom, and an enormous picture window that opens onto a private, hammock-strung terrace overlooking the sea. Guests also have the option of choosing a room that overlooks the beautiful tropical gardens and access to the swimming pool. The bathrooms are equipped with a separate shower and bathtub, as well as exquisite, handcrafted furnishings that provide a tranquil setting for a relaxing salt or bubble bath.
Guests who enjoy watching sunrise or sunset from the intimacy of their room can enhance this experience with the hotel’s exclusive, 24-hour room service, provided in the shade of their terrace.
Lovers of fine dining are seduced by the cuisine of Fabrice Guisset, the French chef who oversees the restaurants and bars of Paraíso La Bonita. He takes the best of Mexican cuisine and adds touches of Europe, and that is how the exquisite seafood dishes are prepared in Kaaz, La Canoa, Bar la Librería, and Hippo’s Bar. Wine lovers have access to the most spectacular wine cellar on the Riviera Maya.
Outdoors, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the beautiful Quintana Roo terrain, or in the elegant salons, the resort’s events facilities are perfect for celebrations, private receptions and exclusive meetings. Paraíso La Bonita’s exquisite banquet service, that is distinguished by the quality of the menu and service, exceeds the expectations of all guests.
The Thalassotherapy Spa, the unique in all North America, is the first of its kind in Mexico and the second in the Americas. It features avant-garde treatments that balance mind and body, cleansing them of toxins through a system that uses sea water and minerals. The sophisticated, 24300 sq feet facility also offers massages, facials, body wraps and hydrotherapy treatments.
For those who prefer outdoor activities, the resort has a private beach, tennis court, temazcal (Aztec steam bath), gym, sauna (wet and dry), deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and an excellent golf course that is enjoyed equally by pros and amateurs. Anchored at the private dock is a luxurious, 15 m catamaran with three private cabins; it is used for romantic dinners on the open sea as well as for group tours along the beautiful Mayan coast.
The service and comfort of the 90 suites and facilities of Paraíso La Bonita have made it worthy of the recognition of The Leading Hotels of the World 2003, an organization of which it is a member, and the Award for Excellence in the category Best Mexican Resort.
