Nearby Attractions

The hotel is situated on the beautiful Riviera Maya at Punta Nizuc, a 20-minute drive from the lively nightlife of Cancún.

This stretch of coastline is where you’ll find most of Mexico’s top luxury resorts, along with the lively town of Playa del Carmen, which has quirky boutiques, great restaurants and lively LGBT-friendly nightlife. Just offshore is the world’s second biggest barrier reef, offering superb snorkelling, diving and dolphin watching.

The Yucatán Peninsula is also home to some of Mexico’s most famous Mayan archaeological sites, including the dramatic beachfront ruins of Tulum and the legendary pyramid of Chichén Itzá, a 2-hour drive from Nizuc.


There are 274 stylish suites and villas spread around the resort, kitted out with a flatscreen TV, free WiFi, iPod dock, Nespresso machine and mini bar. All rooms open onto a private balcony or terrace, and the luxurious bathrooms have a rainfall shower and free-standing soaking tub. For guaranteed peace and quiet choose the Ocean Suites, which are adults only. Some suites also have a private plunge pool and butler service, and the gorgeous villas have an infinity pool and indoor-outdoor showers.

Nizuc Dining

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to dining, with six fantastic restaurants. Highlights include Ramona’s contemporary Mexican menu, the pan-Asian delights of Indochine, and the superb Peruvian restaurant Ni, which offers a mouthwatering array of tapas, ceviches and tiraditos. Terra Nostra has the feel of an Italian beach club, with a sunny outdoor deck and infinity pool, while La Punta Grill & Lounge is a tiki-style venue serving succulent steak and fresh fish.

The host of unique culinary experiences also includes tequila tasting sessions and sushi making classes with the team from Indochine. The Chef’s Table is a fantastic option for larger groups, where Nizuc’s Executive Chef will design a special menu for up to 8 guests to enjoy in a private dining room. The hotel can also arrange a romantic private dinner in your suite, or on the beach with your feet in the sand.
