Luxury Resorts: The Azul Blue Hotel & Resort claims to be the world's first stress-free hotel. And while we're sure there are plenty of luxury hotels that fall into this category, the Azul Blue does deserve bragging rights. With rest, relaxation and tranquility at the forefront of the hotel's mission, the Azul Blue provides a well-deserved escape for overworked patrons. Located on the Mayan Riviera, the resort is within walking distance from the ancient Mayan Pyramids of Tulum.
The resort makes for an intimate getaway as it offers only 96 oversized suites, each equipped with state-of-the-art technologies. For the ultimate in relaxation, opt for the Wellness Suite Package. The package includes an in-room Ionizer; a vitamin shower to re-hydrate skin; an Azul-Blue Water Ritual; an aromatherapy room menu; magnetic mattress and pillows; massages and facials; and a magnetic mask by Kenko¬ģ.
Each villa is provided with a personal butler service that is trained in everything from basic service standards to the most detailed requests imaginable. Why unpack your luggage or draw yourself a bath when you have a butler to do it for you?
The Mexican Caribbean boasts white sand beaches, secluded caves and coves, lush jungles, and more. And as part of the second longest barrier reef in the world, the Mayan Reef is a world-renowned hotspot for diving enthusiasts.
Guests can dine in one of the resorts three gourmet restaurants; engage in a local exploration tour; spend the day receiving spa treatments or channel their inner-self through group mediation. The possibilities are endless.
The resort also caters to the abundance of newlyweds that flock to the island by offering all-inclusive wedding packages. The staff will go as far as filling out all the dreaded paperwork, as well as serving breakfast in bed the following morning.
