Nizuc Resort

Last updated: 13 November, 2022

With nearly thirty acres of beach, mangrove and lagoons, and a location at the far end of the hotel zone in Punta Nizuc, this is as close as it gets to seclusion in Cancun. The busy hotel zone with its skyscraper resorts feels a world away, even though it’s easy to get to the nightlife (and the airport) in under twenty minutes.

Rooms and villas are dotted around the grounds and include lovely Ocean View Junior Suites which open onto infinity plunge pools, and more secluded villas with high walls for privacy, the plushest of which – the Villa Nizuc – comes with its own garden and rooftop sundeck.

The spa is sumptuous and the large infinity pool, surrounded by lush woodland feels intimate and back-to-nature for Cancun.

Surrounding area

The hotel sits in mangrove forest, woodland and lagoons at the far southern end of Cancun’s famous hotel strip.

The lagoon – where there are wild manatees and turtles, sits immediately behind the resort (with gorgeous sunsets over the water), a white sand beach out front.

Yet despite the low-key immersed-in-nature feel, Cancun’s throbbing nightlife, shops and restaurants are within a fifteen-minute cab ride.
