NileGuide Expert tip:
You do not have to be a guest of Live Aqua Cancun to use the spa and restaurants, but you must make a reservation in advance, if you choose to visit those facilities.
Live Aqua Cancun, an ultramodern resort with New Age music and aromatherapy, attracts a chic clientele pampered by an exceptionally gracious staff. The hotel is a high-end, luxury, all-inclusive resort is located on a perfect stretch of beach and is within walking distance to 2 shopping malls (Plaza La Isla is right across the street from the hotel.).
All 371 guest rooms have a view of the Caribbean Sea and boast i-Home sound systems, aromatherapy menus, and Molton Brown bath amenities and artisan soaps. The beds are amazingly comfortable; Egyptian cotton sheets share company with a plush collection of form-fitting pillows.
The pool area is simply spectacular. There are seemingly endless rows of lounge chairs around the hotel's 8 pools but if you'd prefer a little shade, there are also plenty of covered beach beds too. Some of the beach beds are hanging, rather than being firmly planted on the ground, and they rock. Nothing is more perfect that being lulled to sleep by the sound of the crashing waves and the gentle rocking motion of the beach bed. The colors of the swimming pools perfectly match the various shades of blue and turquoise found in the Caribbean Sea. Despite the size of the immense pool area, there are little areas where you can escape crowds.
Spa Aqua, the hotel's spa, is exceptional, with indoor and outdoor treatments that incorporate the best techniques from around the globe.
Some of Mexico's top chefs oversee the gourmet restaurants, including acclaimed chef Martha Ortiz, who created Siete, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the resort's pools.
