Riviera Maya's Most Inimitable Villa Resort and Spa Experience
Hidden in a small village of Playa Xcalacoco just outside Playa del Carmen, along the pearlescent sands of the Riviera Maya, Viceroy, formerly Ikal Del Mar, is a seaside refuge extending deep into the primitive Maya tropical forest. The 30-villa property and its stunning spa present the epitome of Maya Riviera beach unpretentious luxury, exuding the ambience of an exclusive private Playa del Carmen villa or opulent residential compound.
Touted as "a sexy, eco-conscious hideaway in the jungle" by Travel + Leisure magazine, our Riviera Maya resort's design respects and accentuates the pristine qualities of its dramatic jungle and seaside setting. Intimate and serene features blend seamlessly into the dense tropical foliage, dining is available both indoors and outdoors, and yoga classes and spa treatments overlook coastal splendor.
Guests are personally welcomed upon arrival to our Playa del Carmen resort and led through the tropical forest paths to their villa. The palapa-roofed, stucco bohíos, or villas, are decorated with an eye to the sophisticated simplicity of Maya aesthetics, utilizing natural materials throughout: louvered-mahogany doors and windows, sisal rugs, and canopy beds with hand-stitched Egyptian cotton linens. Bath areas are especially spacious with indoor and outdoor showers and his-and-hers sinks and closets.
