Suites and casitas at adults-only Blue Diamond Riviera Maya blend natural elements into their design, each in a unique way – think private docks or rooftop terraces, infinity pools and floor-to-ceiling wraparound windows that meld bedrooms with gardens like a tropical version of Philip Johnson's Glass House. Blue Diamond's level of sophistication is nothing like the typical buffet-driven all-inclusive – gourmet meals are à la carte unlimited, mini bars are stocked with personal top-shelf preferences, and a chauffeur transports guests by golf cart across the 36 acres of mangroves, gardens and beachfront.
Lounge by the tranquil waters of one of the three pools. Have a bowl of fresh fish ceviche for lunch and take a walk through protected mangrove trails and thickets of coconut palms to a white-sand beach. Indulge in a temazcal ceremony, a ritual of Mexico's pre-Hispanic indigenous people that purifies the body and soul. Rejuvenate at the al fresco bar.
