You know when you see something and instantly fall in love with it? That’s how I felt about Finest Playa Mujeres, the newest addition to Excellence Group Hotels and Resorts, the all-suite luxury brand behind Excellence Resorts and Beloved Hotels. Here’s why!
All- Suite Resort
Set on a pristine peninsula north of Cancun surrounded by aquamarine waters and white sand beaches whose tranquil hues are echoed throughout its contemporary interiors, Finest Playa Mujeres is a gem in the world of all-inclusives.
The resort is home to 450 well-appointed guest and family suites (the smallest is 800 square feet) that feature ground-floor swim-out suites with decks, hammocks over the pool, private garden with pool, and two-story rooftop terraces with plunge pools. The luxury details and room amenities are just as impressive: oversized Jacuzzi and rain showers for two, furnished patios or balconies with lounge bed, fully stocked mini-bars, Nespresso coffee machines and every toiletry imaginable. Pair that with 24-hour room service and you may never leave your heavenly abode.
Goodbye Reservations, Hello Freedom
The resort boasts an impressive 12 restaurants where authentic international dishes are only matched by the beautiful interiors in which they are served. Their ‘no reservations’ policy means guests have the freedom to eat wherever they want, whenever they want. For those with food restrictions, not to worry: there are vegetarian and gluten-free options on every menu. And, to up their game, Finest is adding a Mexican food truck!
I happily savoured some incredible meals. However I must give honourable mention to Le Petit Plaisir where I dined on French inspired cuisine in an elegant white Parisian setting accompanied by world-class wines. And at Tinto & Tapas, I snacked on delicious tapas that transported me to Spain.
No holiday would be complete without a few cocktails. With 17 bars throughout, I never ran out of places to explore, like the Sky Bar, where I sipped on molecular cocktails while soaking in panoramic views.
Can’t Beat Activities & Amenities
It’s no surprise that all-inclusive resorts offer an array of activities and amenities, but Finest Playa Mujeres has raised the bar. There are supervised Mini, Maxi and Teen Clubs with waterpark and zip-lining, game area, kayaking, introductory scuba lessons, windsurfing, paddle boarding, water polo, yoga, Spanish lessons, cooking lessons, archery and air rifle shooting to name a few. I never ran out of fun things to do!
Free International Calls & Wi-Fi
No need to purchase additional packages with your cell phone carrier because Finest offers free international calls to Canada and the U.S. There’s also free WiFi.
From the moment you enter ONE Spa you’re immersed in a world of tranquility. My treatment began at the ONE Wall where I set my intention before beginning my journey through purification, healing and transformation. My therapist, Moises, then led me through the steps of the One Aqua Ritual where flowing water represents the flowing of One love, One energy in One’s world. The experience ended with a shoulder and head massage. You cannot help but leave this experience feeling at peace and rejuvenated. The One Aqua Ritual is free to guests of the Finest Club and Excellence Club.
The spa also offers a wonderful selection of signature rituals and treatments incorporating alternative and traditional therapies. There are also treatments to pamper your little ones, including a mini-spa with sparkling pedicures and lullaby massages.
Finest Playa Mujeres truly aspires to exceed expectations throughout your stay.
