A boutique hotel with thirty palapa-roofed villas, located in Playa Xcalacoco, Riviera Maya - Quintana Roo

Hidden in the small village of Playa Xcalacoco just outside Playa del Carmen, along the pearlescent sands of the Riviera Maya and nestled in the tropical forest, The Tides Riviera Maya, formerly Ikal Del Mar, is the resort counterpart of being invited to an exclusive private villa and stunning spa. The beachfront resort refuge has a full service luxury spa, an award-winning restaurant and lounge featuring "Mayaterranean Cuisine," and seven-miles of white-sand beach.

The guest experience provides a priceless and rare escape: a simple guest book serves for check in; no motorized vehicles or cell phones are allowed on property; no artificial lighting mars the lush tropical setting or dims the star-lit sky; employee badges are not to be found; and guests are never asked to sign restaurant bills, an honor code guides the hotel policy.

Guests are personally welcomed upon arrival to the resort and led through the tropical forest paths to be greeted at their villa with special house wine and local fruits. The thirty palapa-roofed, stucco bohos, 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, his-and-hers sinks and closets, and Molton Brown amenities.

Daily Hatha yoga classes and unparalleled spa treatments overlook the coastal splendor. A "must experience" feature, the beach-side Mayan-style sauna called Temazcal, which incorporates massage, chants and prayers to cleanse holistically the body, spirit and mind.
Although The Tides - Riviera Maya is deliciously secluded, it is actually 15 minutes away from bustling Playa del Carmen with its numerous dining venues, funky nightclubs and tropical bohemian vibe.
