The crowned jewel of the Las Brisas Hotel Collection, the Nizuc Resort & Spa, nestled in the heart of the Riviera Maya, brings a new level of luxury to Mexico while staying true to its Mayan roots. 

The Setting

The ancient Maya civilization referred to the area we today call Cancun as Nizuc, meaning “promontory” or “point of grass.” The Maya held a deep reverence for nature and the interconnectedness of all life. The Punta Nizuc was thought to be a deeply spiritual place where the Maya gathered for worship and today the NIzuc Resort & Spa stands in this sacred space, offering a touch of Mayan influence and culture in a highly luxurious, contemporary setting, fit for modern Mexico. Architect and interior designer Alenjandro Escudero has thoughtfully designed the property, spanning 29 acres, with the natural environment and tropical beauty of the Yucatan in mind. Local and organic materials as well as native flora and fauna are utilized throughout the property. Nizuc strives to bring physical and spiritual rejuvenation to its guests and also to the land and ecosystem it inhabits, giving new life to the ancient beliefs of the Mayans. Only a 15-minute jaunt from bustling Cancun, this resort style property is a beautiful homage to Mayan heritage in a sleek, modern setting along the Caribbean Sea.

Sleep and Sanctuary

With 274 luxuriously appointed suites and private villas dotted throughout the 29 acre beachfront property, guests have ample space to truly relax and unwind in nature. The property is family (and pet!) friendly but also offers an adult only pool area for those seeking a quite respite. In fact, the Ocean Suites are reserved for adults only and are steps away from the lobby, main pool, Nizuc Beach and Reef Beach.  The Residence Suites offer private terraces and options for adjoining rooms, making this option ideal for families. Golf cart service around the property is provided. For a truly unique and sumptuous experience, splurge on a Private Villa, only a short walk away from the main lobby, yet a world all its own, complete with personal infinity pools, indoor/outdoor showers, and free standing soaking tubs. Top of the line hypoallergenic bedding, no smoking on property, and various touches of health and wellness exist throughout the details of the property, making it very clear this is not the all inclusive, party hotel that Cancun is now known for. While the region has developed rapidly as a tourism destination, Nizuc Resort & Spa enjoys a slower pace and sense of serenity, stemming from its Mayan heritage of balance and healing.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

While there are many dining options in nearby Cancun, Nizuc strives to be a full service, experiential retreat where guests can settle in and relax, without having to even leave the expansive property, (other than a dip into the sparkling Caribbean of course!) In keeping the Mexican spirit and Mayan soul of the region in focus, the property boasts six world-class restaurants, and has become culinary destination in its own right. Executive Chef Sylvain Desbois fuses classic cuisine with contemporary flavors and guests literally have the world at their fingertips when dining with Nizuc. Let’s not forget the many lounge areas offering inspired cocktails, fresh ingredients, live music, and breathtaking sunset views. Check out Bar A-Kan, Havana Lounge, or Terra Nostra Lounge to unwind after a sundrenched day of salt and sea before venturing into the evening.

  • Ramona -  Chef Jose Meza describes Nizuc’s signature restaurant as “evolutionary” and rightly so. The young and highly talented chef fuses traditional Mexican cuisine with locally sourced produce and spices in a contemporary fashion for a truly remarkable dining experience. Guests arrive to unset tables as the place setting is unique to each dining experience. Menus are organized by intensity of flavor. For plant focused dishes, try the Escamoles, corn tlayuda ground of beans and creamy avocado and the Risotto A La Mexicana, an intoxicating dish of exotic red rice, carrots, green peas, and banana.
  •  Indochine –  Asian fusion meets Mexico in this decidedly worldly and casually elegant restaurant. The restaurant overlooks a dramatically lit reflective pool, giving the space an otherworldly ambiance. Fresh ingredients and decadent herbs and fruits power the menu, which offers vegan and vegetarian options, including the decadent Pad Thai Indochine, Vietnamese Summer Roles, and Green Papaya Salad.
  • Terra Nostra – For a taste of the Mediterranean, venture to Terra Nostra, offering homemade pastas and wood fired delicacies, overlooking lush mangroves. Enjoying a glass of wine on the large outdoor deck overlooking the infinity pool, guests will be transported to an Italian beach club for the evening. Enjoy Chef Danielle Tonin’s Gazpacho Ghiacciata, a cold tomato soup with fresh basil and red bell pepper.
  • Ni – In a nod to the deeply rooted culinary culture of South America, a visit to Ni is a must do while visiting Nizuc. The restaurant’s interior finishings are made of rich wood and natural materials, with slatted wooden shutters opening to the outdoors and letting in the natural sunlight and cool Caribbean breezes. Enjoy a light lunch of Peruvian tiraditos, tapas, and ceviches.
  • Café de la Playa- Fuel up with a healthy breakfast before starting your adventures of sun and sea. The café serves the region’s famous coffee as well as an abundance of freshly squeezed juices. Enjoy an Energetic Juice and choose from the Green Juice of pineapple, grapefruit, cactus, celery, and parsley, Red Juice of celery, apple, beet, and spirulina, or Asian Juice of pear, ginger, carrot, and orange. Order the Healthy breakfast, with your choice of Energetic Juice is paired with fresh fruit and an egg white and veggie omelet with mushrooms, asparagus, spinach, and cherry tomatoes with wheat toast.
  • La Punta Grill & Lounge – This sexy space conjures images of a luxurious tiki hut with low, luxe seating, a warm ambiance, crashing waves, candlelight, and a variety of exotic wood making up the decadent décor. Nosh on vegetarian fajitas and indulge in Mexican classics including the handmade guacamole and aguachile.
 The Art of De-stressing

Nizuc takes wellness seriously and offers Mexico’s first ESPA experience. ESPA combines advanced European treatment and technology with ancient Mayan healing traditions, resulting in a highly customized spa program Nizuc Spa by ESPA. Consultative and results driven facials, massages, and body treatments are designed to provide a level of pampering but also encourage a deeper knowledge and understanding of one’s health and body. All 50-minute spa treatments include a complimentary Thermal Experience, celebrating the healing power of water. The experience includes a fularomatic steam room, invigorating shower, sauna, ice fountain with cool mist shower, vitality pool with hydro-massage, cold plunge pool, relaxation solarium, thermic loungers, indoor relaxation lounge with fresh fruit and herbal tea, as well as a co-ed outdoor pool. The stress will melt away.

  • In Cancun, check out the downtown Casa de Cultura Art Center, for cultural events ranging from art exhibits to dance performance as well as plays and performances of all kinds. http://casaculturacancun.blogspot.mx/
