It may be tanning season now, but it’s never too soon to start plotting your winter escape, especially one that deliversan exclusive, luxurious and customized experience.
The Island Life
Cozumel is a popular stop for cruise ships, which may make you think it’s not the place to go for a private, one-of-a-kind, luxury vacation. This is where Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa comes in. This luxurious property will quickly remind you that the island of Cozumel truly is an island of extravagant leisure.
The property proudly boasts two beaches, an infinity pool and one adults-only pool, which is an enforced quiet zone to ensure guests have the tranquility they are looking for. To enhance your pool/beach experience, 10 cabanas were completed; four are located within the main pool area but the remaining six are the most exclusive, offering direct access to the Caribbean Sea.
A recent US$15 million renovation, which delivered unparalleled luxury, while respecting the natural and architectural context of the location, has sealed the resort’s status as a leader in the destination hotel industry. Guests can choose from one of the 218 guest rooms or two impressive Presidential suites.
The larger of the two suites, the “Zafiro,” enjoys an exclusive location on the property with private terraces commanding spectacular natural views along with high-end amenities, including a game table, sound system, wine rack, and bar, private pool and more. The “Esmeralda” suite boasts spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, direct beach access and high-end amenities and décor.
Visiting the resort’s spa is a must. Choose from a host of pampering experiences including these two treatments that are not to be missed. The Balinese Massage is a choreographed massage that uses a combination of aromatherapy, acupressure, pressure point and traditional massage techniques from Bali. What makes this treatment truly unique is that it is also a water treatment; a special arm is raised above your body, which trickles water down above you, as the masseuse adjusts the pressure to your needs. Add on a full body organic exfoliation treatment to make the most of this experience!
The second experience is truly one-of-a-kind. The Mayan Temazcal is a ancient Mayan ritual performed by a Shaman. It’s a traditional purification ritual, which adds herbs to a burning fire of wood and stones to produce a steam that not only taps into your spiritual side but helps flush out the body’s toxins. Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa is the only resort to offer this unique experience on the island.
The resort prides itself on providing a luxurious, private and customized experience for its guests. While there are four wonderful restaurants onsite, the resort can provide more private dining options. Enjoy a private dining experience on one of the onsite piers, or choose a romantic, water’s edge dinner, enjoying the soothing sounds of the Caribbean. For unparalleled luxury, sit down with the chef and create a personalized, six-course meal with wine pairings, served directly in your room.
Whether you’re looking for the exclusive laid-back vibe of Cozumel or the upscale shopping and nightlife of Cancun, InterContinental will exceed your expectations with their attention to detail and customized experience, proving once and for all that Mexico isn’t just about the spring break party or the generic all-inclusive. Mexico is a country that takes providing luxury to its visitors seriously.
