Set along a white-sand beach on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the all-inclusive Breathless Riviera Cancun is a lively resort, designed for adults only. This modern beachfront property attracts solo travellers, couples and friends who enjoy all-day activities and 24-hour entertainment. The vibrant atmosphere is enhanced by two outdoor pools and a 35-seater whirlpool that hosts an array of events. Plus, there’s chic, all-suite accommodation, a wide choice of restaurants and bars and a luxurious spa.
Bordered by lush mangrove forests, the Breathless Riviera Cancun resort enjoys a quiet location, with direct access to a sandy beach and the calm waters of the Bahia Petempich lagoon, a well-known spot for snorkelling and diving. It’s around eight miles from the coastal town of Puerto Morelos and 20 miles from the city of Cancun. Cancun International Airport is around 12 miles from the property.
The 362 contemporary suites each feature a private balcony or terrace overlooking the tropical landscape or Caribbean Sea. All suites are beautifully decorated, with neutral colour schemes, wood flooring, white bedding and colourful soft furnishings. Suites are equipped with a complimentary minibar, and the sleek bathrooms feature bathrobes, slippers and a spacious walk-in marble shower with glass walls (curtains are provided for privacy).
