2020 might have challenged us a lot, but it didn’t manage to dampen two important things: our love of travel and our optimistic spirit!

If you need something special to look forward to this year, how about joining us in dreaming of these brand-spanking new all-inclusive resorts, opening up across Mexico in 2021.

5 Brand New Mexican Resorts We’re Most Excited About for 2021

1. Breathless Resorts & Spas Tulum

This 300-suite resort is sure to deliver Breathless’ one-of-a-kind social atmosphere to the shores of Tulum. The extrovert paradise will feature signature Unlimited-Luxury® inclusions like 24-hour room and concierge services, pool and beach butlers, and of course, spirited parties and events almost ‘round the clock.

2. Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Cancun

Everyone in the family can “Vacation like a Star ™” at the new Planet Hollywood experience in Costa Mujeres (minus the red carpet gown). Every STAR Class™ suite comes with a “Personal Agent” who ensures your holiday is nothing short of brilliant. The brand new resort’s dining experiences include fun eateries like Guy’s! Burger Joint, Sutra Indian Restaurant & Hookah Lounge, and the gourmand favourite, 6th Sense – Chef’s Table.

3. Nickelodeon Hotel & Resort Riviera Maya

Turns out, Riviera Maya is Bikini Bottom in disguise! If you’ve never experienced a Nickelodeon holiday before, you might be surprised at how well fun and luxury come together. The new Riviera Maya resort boasts Gourmet Inclusive® experiences, oceanfront suites and villas (including four themed penthouses), and one of the largest water parks around.

4. Paradisus Playa Mujeres

Like all Paradisus resorts, this one is a looker. But it won’t just be your eyes you’ll be treating with a stay in this new Playa Mujeres experience. Rejuvenating and calming treatments await at the extensive YHI Spa, and ten local and international restaurants, including the gourmet Gastro Bar, are ready to delight the tastes of every guest. For even more exclusive amenities, ask your Travel Expert about The Reserve.

5. Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo

It’s hard to pick a favourite among this eco-resort’s features. Perhaps it’s the clifftop view. Maybe it’s the organic spa. Then again, what about the fact that only 2% of the Costa Alegre eco reserve was developed to make this sophisticated resort come to life? Between the championship golf course, water sports centre, and quiet swimming pools, guests of this new Four Seasons property will have more than enough to see and do.
