Adults only and all inclusive? What more could you want! This peaceful, AAA Five Diamond award-winning resort supplies a beachfront paradise where you won’t lift a finger. Your personal butler attends to your every wish while you embrace a vacation state of mind in modern rooms with whirlpool tubs for two and your choice of aromatherapy scent. Each of the 260 rooms has beach bag, liquor cabinet and minibar awaiting your arrival. You’ll never have to search to satiate your appetite here—delicious snacks and treats are always waiting in lounges throughout the resort and you have Lumiere, Blancitalia, Blancsasia and Blancinternational options for your main meals.

If you’d rather not leave your room, order dinner and settle into the in-room entertainment—you have limitless choices with Apple TV and Netflix included.

Gaze out at the Caribbean Sea from the resort infinity pools that seamlessly blend in with the shoreline, offering a view as expansive as your relaxation options. Or, lounge in a beach cabana with a bottle of wine and the ocean breeze on your face. Blancspa has couples cabins, single suits, complimentary hydrotherapy and more. Indulge in 50 minutes of pure heaven with the Serenity Massage or exfoliate your past away with a refreshing body scrub before you head to the hydrotherapy circuit. If you’re looking for an experience you won’t soon forget, try a Fish Spa Pedicure. The nearby Moon Spa & Golf Course has 27 challenging holes designed by Jack Nicklaus—you can even use your resort credit towards it. The on-site fitness center has state of the art equipment plus pilates, TRX and spinning classes. Or, get your exercise outdoors with beach or pool volleyball.

Paradisus Cancún

Cancún, Mexico

Paradisus Cancún offers the best of both worlds in style with Royal Service for adults and Family Concierge for families. This all-inclusive resort wows at every turn—pyramid structures glimmer and bounce reflections of the turquoise Caribbean sea, a gorgeous green atrium greets you on arrival with vines cascading from the ceiling and butlers attend to your every wish whether in your room or on the beach—even cleaning your sunglasses. Every spacious room has views of the Caribbean or Nichupté lagoon, warm accents and marble floors. Family Concierge Suites have amenities for parents and children, but we especially love the kids’ perks like robes, slippers, pillows, a beach kit and cookies and milk turndown service. The Royal Service option has adults-only accommodations with luxury amenities, access to a private Royal Service pool with Bali beds and discreet butler service.

Your all-inclusive package includes use of the gym, fully-lit tennis courts, nonmotorized watersports, kids’ zone, unlimited drinks, day and night entertainment, nine restaurants and seven bars. When it comes to dining, Paradisus Cancún goes above and beyond—put on your Sunday best and head to Tempo, the resort’s elegant restaurant by Eight-Star Michelin Chef Martin Berasategui or taste Mezcal at Blue Agave Bar after traditional tacos at Blue Agave Restaurant. The resort has four pools, along with a swim-up bar and beach bar, so your thirst is satiated whether you’re cozy in a cabana or sunning in the pool. Golfers hit the dance floor—the nine-hole, par three golf course is perfect for a quick round between poolside cocktails and a soothing massage at YHI Spa.
