Our view at lunch at the St. Regis Kanai Beach Club Grill overlooking the Caribbean ocean, beach and infinity pool.

I'm excited to introduce you to a hidden gem that promises an unparalleled luxury experience - the St. Regis Kanai. Nestled in a breathtaking location along the Riveria Maya outside of Playa del Carmen, Mexico, this resort is a dream come true for those seeking relaxation, rejuvenation, and a touch of opulence. Let's dive into my review of this remarkable property.

The grounds are modern and sophisticated with many water features.

Overall Experience:

From the moment we arrived at the St. Regis Kanai, we knew were in for a treat. The overall rating of 5 speaks volumes about the exceptional quality and attention to detail this resort offers. Every aspect, from the pristine condition and cleanliness to the exquisite decor, exudes elegance and sophistication.

Guestrooms and Public Areas:

Stepping into my guestroom, I was greeted by spaciousness, tasteful furnishings, and a serene ambiance that instantly put me at ease. The attention to detail was evident, and every amenity I could possibly desire was provided. The public areas were just as impressive, boasting stunning interiors and offering breathtaking views of the surrounding beach and mangrove forest.

The resort rooms offer breathtaking views. This is from our balcony overlooking the mangrove forest.

Dining Experience:

One of the highlights of my stay was the culinary experiences in each of the beautiful restaurants. The talented chefs at the resort curated a menu that catered to all palates, ensuring a memorable dining experience, alongside exceptional service.

We ate at each restaurant and they are all fabulous. From the casual fare at the Beach Grille, to the luxury of the Torro, we never had a meal we didn't like.

Meeting Space and Spa:

I was fortunate enough to indulge in the spa treatments, which were nothing short of heavenly. The skilled therapists and serene atmosphere melted away all my stress, leaving me feeling rejuvenated.

An afternoon at the tranquil spa - this was the spot I enjoyed prior to my treatment next to the plunge pool.

Reception and Butler Service:

The exceptional service at St. Regis Kanai truly sets it apart. The friendly and attentive staff went above and beyond to ensure my every need was met. Our butler team worked to ensure the Astros game was on at the sports bar, and even tracked down a hair tie for me after I realized I didn’t pack one. I was consistently impressed by the level of professionalism and warmth displayed by the staff.

From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcome!

Pool, Beach, and Fitness Center:

The resort’s adult-only pool and beach areas were a true oasis of tranquility. With a rating of 5, the pool was immaculate, surrounded by lush greenery, and provided the perfect spot for relaxation and soaking up the sun. The beach was expansive, offering stunning views and an opportunity to unwind with a book or take a leisurely stroll. Fitness enthusiasts will be delighted by the state-of-the-art fitness center, providing a range of equipment to cater to all workout routines.

We had the beach to ourselves in the morning. What a treat!


The cab ride to Cancun Airport was about 40 minutes during the early morning hours, and cost approximately $80 one way. The St. Regis also offers a private SUV service for around $210 one way.

We loved seeing the wildlife enjoying the resort as well.
