The Top Five Honeymoon-Worthy Hotels in Mexico's Rivieria Maya

Posted by Adam Warner

Thanks to numerous white-sand beaches and spectacular luxury resorts, the Caribbean-fronting coast of Mexico is an ever-popular honeymoon destination.

From extraordinary hotels featuring overwater bungalows to brand new boutique properties along the shoreline, these five hotels rank among our favorite honeymoon lodging spots in Mexico's Riviera Maya region.


Fairmont Mayakoba

Couples can expect elegant accommodations and incredible amenities at this renowned resort. Rooms include lagoon and jungle view casitas and beach area suites located on the Playa del Carmen luxury resort's 47-acre retreat setting in the Riviera Maya. Guestrooms offer private furnished balconies, spa-style bathrooms and luxurious amenities.

Habitas Tulum

We're huge fans of this boutique hotel, which just opened in 2017. The eco-friendly retreat -- situated on one of most spectacular stretches of sand in the region -- features an elegant bohemian design and glamping-style accommodations. Highlights include fantastic dining on the beach, seafront infinity pool, nature trails through the jungle, and a private beach.

Rosewood Mayakoba

The five-star resort is located on a remote stretch of white Caribbean sand south of Cancun and north of Playa del Carmen. Guests have the option of staying in deluxe overwater lagoon suites, complete with a lounge terrace, plunge pool, outdoor garden shower, king bed, and spectacular views of a lagoon and surrounding mangroves. Quite simply, this is a honeymooner's dream.

Casa Malca

Located on a private white-sand beach in Tulum's quieter southern end, Casa Malca expertly merges contemporary art, relaxed luxury, and nature for a one-of-a-kind experience. Couples will find 42 rooms and suites (many with premium ocean views thanks to floor to ceiling windows), three swimming pools, a restaurant and rooftop bar, and museum-worthy artwork.

Nomade Tulum

Situated on the gorgeous main beach of Tulum and surrounded by tropical forest, Nomad Tulum boasts spacious Boho-chic rooms (many with private patios and hammocks), a wide range of wellness activities such as yoga and meditation, and several restaurants and bars. The property is home to La Popular, a beautiful fish market inspired restaurant located directly on the beach.
