Travelers who want to savor the sun this winter can immerse themselves in luxurious adults-only comfort at Mexico's award-winning Viceroy Riviera Maya all-villa resort. Boasting 41 private villas, each with its own patio and plunge pool, the resort offers gracious living in a serene hideaway. Named by Travel + Leisure as the #1 Resort Hotel in Mexico, the Viceroy Riviera Maya makes visitors feel as if they are staying at an exclusive private refuge.

Situated on seven miles of the pristine white Riviera Maya sands, this Mexican luxury resort is nestled in a lush tropical forest setting, guests can choose from well-appointed private villas offering ocean or beachfront views. 500-thread Egyptian cotton sheets and plush down pillows grace the beds along with oversized bath towels and a private outdoor shower. The resort's Mayordomo team pampers guests with personalized attention and an array of butler and concierge services.

Dining options are supervised by Executive Chef Carlos Zamora Larios, with the signature restaurant, La Marea, proudly leading the gastronomic adventure with its open-air appeal.  Guests will also enjoy dishes highlighting local ingredients that express the bounty of modern Mexican cuisine. More casual dining options and creative libations are available at the seaside Coral Grill & Bar with its aromatic wood-burning grills. The resort boasts a 500-bottle cellar with a wide selection of both noted wines from around the world and acclaimed wines from boutique Mexican wineries.

Energetic guests may choose to utilize the fully-equipped Fitness Center, while those favoring pure indulgence may opt for world-class pampering at the signature full-service Wayak Wellness Spa. Its circular structure echoes the holistic philosophy of the Mayans, with Mayan healing techniques and traditions infused throughout every aspect of the spa experience.
