What amazed us most?

Impeccable service and attention to detail from every member of staff. You don’t need to ask twice or remind anyone about your request. Waiters in the hotel address you by name every morning and bring your favourite dishes without a word being exchanged. A natural mini-zoo. A lot of different animals live in this boutique resort and in the jungles surrounding it: parrots, peacocks, lizards, iguanas, raccoons and even... a crocodile! We just saw a sign but locals say there is one small creature in the jungle but he doesn’t like to get close to people - which is actually good.

Why should you come here?

To experience the unique concept of this boutique resort focused on wellness, serenity and romance, as well as social and environmental responsibility. To wake up every morning in your ocean-front suite to the sound of waves and birdsong. To join the unique and exceptional traditional Mayan ritual, Temazcal, which takes place in the hotel’s spa and is conducted by an authentic local Shaman.


special thing about the hotel

Without a doubt this is one of the best hotels in Mexico and not only in our humble opinion: for the 11th consecutive year, Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita has earned the AAA Five Diamond Award. Only 100 out of 33,000 AAA-rated hotels in the world – and just five in all of Mexico – have received this prestigious award.

We fell in love with this resort even before entering the gates. We were met at Cancun Airport by the smiling and very charming hotel driver, Fernando, who escorted us to an air- conditioned van and made our day with refreshing towels, chilled water and champagne. It was a real life-saver after an 11-hour flight as we were dead on our feet. Our relaxation had begun!


the most of your stay

*If you are seeking romance and extra privacy, book a Lovers Suite with an extra-large terrace, plunge pool and discreet outdoor shower. To tell the truth, all of the bathrooms in the hotel are amazing: with spa-like marble baths with a Roman-style tub for two and a separate shower.

*Enquire about having an intimate dinner served pier-side or on the beach and other romantic locations. A private table, private servers and intimate moments with your beloved – this really is a must.

*The hotel offers a lot of activities ranging from bracelet making to tequila tasting and Spanish language or cooking lessons. You can take yoga lessons from famous yoga instructors on the pier. It is very romantic and refreshing in the mornings.

*If you want to have fun or to try other gourmet options, apply for your free pass to other participating resorts (Dreams, Now, Sunscape and Breathless). The “Sip, Savour and See” programme allows you to enjoy restaurants, discos, and live entertainment in the evenings at nearby hotels. You have to pay just for the taxi.

*Experience the healing and restorative ceremony of Temazcal, a traditional Mayan ritual conducted by an authentic Shaman. This ceremony is healing and restorative and cleanses the body and soul.
