Nestled deep in the Mayan jungle in one of the most iconic beaches in the world, the new hotel promises to offer a luxury experience like no other in México. La Casa de la Playa, will be a luxury boutique hotel tha twelcomes an adults-only guest-list, to discover the best Mexico has to offer through curated experiences and exceptional gastronomy.
With an investment of $85 million, La Casa de la Playa will be home to 63 unique ocean-view suites with personalities of their own. Each accommodation offers guests more than 100 square meters to live and lounge, dip in the private pool, absorb the ocean views, and enjoy refined barefoot luxury service throughout the property. With amenities around every corner of the hotel, like an award-winning spa, chef-driven dining offerings, an ocean-view library and a chocolate shop, guests can celebrate the beauty of true Mexican luxury hospitality.
La Casa de la Playa, designed with sustainability in mind, was birthed by the eco-integrated vision of Architect David Quintana, using nature as an essential developmental element to conserve and protect it. The hotel was conceived to be a living sculpture and is designed based on sophisticated stylings to personify Mexico’s pinnacle. The hotel comes alive through its modern design elements, its elegant decor and its dramatic common spaces surrounded by lush greenery.
“We are thankful for the overwhelming acceptance of our new hotel project which joins our Hotel Xcaret Mexico and Hotel Xcaret Arte family and will continue endorsing our commitment to excellence and sustainable tourism recreation,” said Architect David Quintana, Vice President of Strategy and Development. “La Casa de la Playa is a tribute to the best of Mexico, the common thread that will continue to be the great love for our country.”
Xcaret Hotels continues to position itself as the new culinary epicenter of Mexico adding some of the most distinguished chefs in Mexico and the world to its Culinary Collective. The renowned celebrity chef Martha Ortiz will open Tuch de Luna, a display of art, science, and feminine cuisine that is poem-like and sure to leave diners breathless; Estero will be led by celebrity chef Virgilio Martínez, who during the past few years has headlined the list of the 50 Best Chefs in Latin American, acclaimed for his cooking style which he defines as “market cuisine” or “author cuisine”. Chef duo, the Rodrigo brother Daniel and Patricio Rivera-Río, proud representatives of the state of Nuevo León, will celebrate gastronomy through contemporary flavors from the northern and southern regions of Mexico in two restaurants, Lumbre and Centli.
Xcaret’s All-Fun Inclusive® experience reaches a new level offering curated and exclusive moments to revitalize the body, mind, and spirit, from a night swim in an underground river full of mysticism to an intimate dinner on a Xenote with a special menu designed for each guest by one of the hotel’s celebrity chef.

Some of the suites will have their own spa cabin for guests to enjoy a relaxing experience, without leaving the room.
