One of the top luxury hotels in Cancun, Live Aqua Cancun is an elegant, adults-only resort with a focus on serenity. The property feels like one big spa, with pleasant aromatherapy scents drifting through the public spaces, lots of soothing water features, and soft, Zen-style music playing throughout. The lobby features a tranquil reflecting pool, and all guests receive free hand massages when they arrive.

Guest rooms are decorated in calming neutral tones of beige, olive green, and light blue. All rooms have beautiful sea views, with most including balconies, along with plasma TVs and iHome media systems. An aromatherapy menu allows guests to select scents based on their moods. Bathrooms offer separate bathtubs and high-end Somma bath products. Club level rooms and suites include additional perks like access to a private lounge as well as free hors d’oeuvres in the evening.

For additional pampering, guests can head to Aqua Spa, which offers a variety of massages, facials, and body treatments, including aromavedic baths. The resort also features seven swimming pools, including a Watsu pool, a lap pool, and massaging whirlpools. Each of the pools is a different temperature, which means guests can choose the level of warmth or coolness they prefer.

Guests have access to a private beach, which is dotted with comfy chaise loungers and shady umbrellas.

There are 12 restaurants and bars to choose from, which serve cuisine ranging from Mediterranean to Japanese. MB Restaurant is a particular stand-out, with its emphasis on local ingredients and flavors.
