Exploring the Chic Oasis: A Fashionista’s Guide to the Trendy New Mexico Resort

Inside the Buzzy New Mexico Resort That’s Already a Fashion Crowd Favorite

Experience the Magic of Edition Riviera Maya

At a press conference at the opening of the latest property in the Edition hotel empire—the Riviera Maya Edition at Kanai just outside Cancún, Mexico—documentarian Matt Tyrnauer recounted a revealing anecdote about Studio 54 impresario Ian Schrager. Schrager, who co-founded Edition Hotels in 2013 with backing from Marriott and serves as the creative force behind the brand, is a notorious perfectionist. And once, while giving Tyrnauer a tour of a soon-to-be-opened location, he noticed that a little light strip beneath an escalator was just an inch or two below where it was supposed to be, making it visible to guests. It was an error most wouldn’t notice. But Schrager was upset. “Now that,” he said, “is a fantasy killer.” And he is in the business of making fantasies come to life.

Immerse Yourself in Luxury

Schrager’s aesthetic for the Edition brand is soothing, clean, and rendered in a “disciplined palette” with the most flattering lighting imaginable. The custom-made curvy furniture, elegant reflecting pools, open-air lobby with mile-high ceilings hosting a vertical garden, and the ocean pier with nets create an environment that harkens back to nature and exudes luxury.

Authentic Mexican Touches

While the Edition Riviera Maya maintains the signature Edition vibe, it also incorporates thoughtful touches that reflect the local culture of Mexico. From locally sourced sculptures in the lobby bar to the spa inspired by local cenotes, the hotel immerses guests in the beauty of Mexico.

Unforgettable Culinary Experiences

The culinary and beverage programs at the hotel, led by award-winning Mexican chefs Tomás Bermudez and Francisco Ruano, offer modern variations of fresh local cuisine. Guests can savor the flavors of Mexico in a truly unique setting.

A Weekend of Luxury

The hotel’s opening weekend was filled with beach time, pool time, and extravagant parties. Guests enjoyed DJ sets, pool parties, and luxurious spa treatments. The experience was nothing short of magical and unforgettable.

Personal Oasis with a Lap Pool

With 182 guest rooms and suites, the hotel offers a range of accommodations. The writer managed to secure a room with an enormous private lap pool, providing a personal oasis for relaxation and enjoyment.

The lap pool became a place of solace and joy, allowing for moments of reflection and pure bliss. The writer’s only regret was not purchasing the cotton candy-fluffy Edition robe, a testament to the luxurious experience offered at the hotel.

Book your stay at Edition Riviera Maya now to immerse yourself in luxury, relaxation, and the magic of Mexico.
