Awakening, Riviera Maya
Dedicated entirely to the pursuit of happiness, this luxury hotel promises to be the first of its kind with architecture that’s designed to mimic nature’s forms and a beautiful setting by the Nopalitos Lagoon (which is in fact a cenote) next to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve on Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Guests will stay in cocoon-like villas, which combine characteristics of a treehouse and beach hut and are designed to blend into the coastal jungle. Taking on a barefoot luxury philosophy, the resort will aim to bring guests into contact with the natural world while providing experiences that nourish the soul. This is paired with a strong sustainability ethos, bringing even more positivity to the resort. Awakening is scheduled to open in 2019.
