Casa Turquesa: Boutique Luxury in Cancun
"Boutique hotel" and "Cancun" aren't usually mentioned in the same breath, but Casa Turquesa strives – and succeeds – to maintain an intimate feel amidst the Riviera Maya’s mega-resorts.
With just 29 beachfront suites the mood is relaxed and comfortable, but all the amenities of a large hotel complex can still be found along Casa Turquesa’s stunning stretch of the Caribbean.
With marble floors and bronze statues, elegant and classical décor welcomes you upon entering enter the lobby. The management team at Casa Turquesa has a refined eye for style, and aside from artwork displayed prominent throughout the common areas and rooms, there is a gallery on-site. Their multilingual staff will greet you and make sure that service remains exceptional throughout your stay.
Many of the qualities that set Casa Turquesa apart from other Cancun resorts come to light in its guestroom. For starters, a bottle of wine and fresh local fruit are waiting upon entry. The luxurious marble floors found in the lobby continue throughout your Junior Suite and into the bathroom, which holds an oversized tub where you can unwind after an eventful day. Step out onto your private balcony and enjoy breathtaking views of Cancun’s finest
beaches; it’s a stunning vista that can be enjoyed from, the balcony’s built-in Jacuzzi.
Beginning with your complimentary breakfast each morning, there are several exceptional on-site dining opportunities at Casa Turquesa. Belle Vue is a seaside cafe that is open mornings through the afternoon, before fine dining restaurant Celebrity takes over for dinner service. In addition, the Ocasco Terrace offers light snacks, cocktails and a relaxed setting overlooking the lagoon.
According to Casa Turquesa’s Tracey Davies, “Ceviche is a must try dish, which is seafood ‘cooked’ in lemon juice.”
Basking in the sun is a revered Riviera Maya pastime, and this “activity” is well-catered to at the hotel’s infinity pool or the beach, which are both just steps away. When looking to extract yourself from the lounge chair, parasailing, deep sea fishing and swimming with dolphins are offer excitement just offshore. For history lovers, Davies points out, “there are Mayan ruins nearby and Chichen Itza – one of the seven modern wonders of the world – can be reached in around 90 minutes.”
Redefining the concept of a beachfront Cancun resort, Casa Turquesa proves that your stay along the Mayan Riviera can be simultaneously intimate, upscale and include all the trappings of its much larger neighbors!
