It’s that time of year when us luxers obsess over SPRING BREAK & all the fun things and places we can go. This year we decided get crazy in Cancun. We wanted the sun, the beach, the pools, the spa, the tequila, but we also didn’t want a bunch of screaming little kids running around or college kids taking shots off of each other. We did some reasearch and found that LE BLANC was the luxiest of the lux in Cancun. This adults-only, all-inclusive beach resort is 8 km from Museo Maya de Cancún and about 25 minutes from the airport. Featuring gorgeous balconies with ocean views, the refined, airy rooms offer free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with multimedia connections, and desks. The wifi came in super handy to keep our instaposts going live! Our suite had an amazing minibar with full bottles of top shelf liquor…let’s just say this was AMAZING..but also caused some difficult mornings.
Here are some of our favorite parts of the resort:
THE SPA: If you’re ready to enter relaxation bliss, grab your tequila (or don’t, we won’t judge) and prepare for an unforgettable experience. With 19 treatment rooms, 3 indoor couple suites and much much more, we found ourselves floating on Zen cloud nine. As we made our way to the hydrotherapy session, the pathway was groomed with black and white rocks in the yin gang yang formation, I was feeling relaxed already. The Hydrotherapy consisted of four 15 minute steps. The first being in the dry sauna, followed by the steam room where you lathered on a lavender scented body mask, took a rinse in the waterfall shower and then made your way to the Jacuzzi. This was all lead by the very helpful staff that consistently refilled my chlorophyll water and placed cucumbers on my puffy, hungover, eyes (damn you all inclusiveness and minibar!) I don’t know if it was the meditation music, the candles that surrounded me, or a mixture of the two, but I woke up an hour later ready to take on the night.
THE BUTLERS: Yes, all guest rooms have butlers..now this is LUX..Mario and Alex were our butlers and they really outdid themselves. Whatever we wanted they took care of it. Room reservations, running our bath, setting up the in-room aromatherapy, taking photos..everything. We would also come back to the room at night to champagne chilling and chocolate covered strawberries.
THE BEACH: The beach outside Le Blanc is HEAVENLY. It looks just like the pictures I’m sure you’ve already seen. Teal/blue waters, you don’t even feel salty when you get out. The water was a little warm (maybe mid 70’s) but we were there in the summer time. The sand was really white and most importantly, clean! You could tell they really stayed on top of cleanliness throughout the entire resort. They raked the beach each morning so the terrain was nice and even, plenty of chaise lounge chairs, cabanas, servers bringing you food and drinks on the beach. Absolutely the best.
THE STAFF:Throughout the entire stay every single person that works there will do everything in their power to go above and beyond to make your vacation truly a vacation.
THE FOOD: There are so many food choices here and something for everyone! The food at all of the restaurants was great and the HUGE breakfast and lunch buffets were excellent. They had healthy, well-prepared foods on every menu and an abundance at the buffets.
OVERALL: One of the luxiest places we’ve ever stayed and we LOVED every minute of it. We will definitly be back.
