If you’re looking for luxury holidays in Cancun in the heart of the action but also want your fair share of pampering treats, pick a hotel that offers a delicious spa, beauty therapies and five star R and R as part of the package.

Here are three of Cancun’s finest hotels with spas on tap….

Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa

Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa - Luxury All Inclusive

The clue is in the name – this five-star resort is your gateway to exploring the star attractions of the Yucatan peninsula with all you could want for a memorable holiday on your doorstep.

Situated just 30 minutes’ drive from Cancun and within easy reach of the golden sands of Playa del Carmen and the magical Mayan temples of the Riviera, Dreams Riviera Cancun is set on its own sugar white sands. In addition to an action packed menu of watersports and activities it’s also home to the fabulous Dreams Spa by Pevonia.

Work your way through the treatment menu from head massages to pedicures, detox therapies and mud wraps designed to help you make your body beautiful. And when you’ve swum a few laps of the pool, felt the burn in the gym or taken a yoga class you can flop in front of a movie right on the beach. Cancun holidays don’t get much better than this.

Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort

Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort All Inclusive

If you’re looking for a relaxing hotel close to Cancun’s legendary nightlife, the Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort offers the best of both worlds. While the regular shuttle service can whisk to the heart of Cancun’s Hotel Zone in a matter of minutes the resort offers a tranquil retreat away from the madding crowds.

Here, you can unwind on a secluded beach, sample every watersport under the sun and eat your way around a staggering choice of 15 restaurants and sink mojitos in oceanfront cocktail bars.

And when it comes to health, fitness and pampering this resort is premier league. Burn off the carbs at the two state of the art fitness centres or let it all hang out in the spa which offers top to toe beauty treatments and therapies for relaxation and rejuvenation.

There are seven outdoor pools, six Jacuzzis, and swim up bars. For those in search of inner peace, there’s also regular classes of Yoga & Pilates and a beautiful Meditation Garden tucked away in the lush tropical grounds.

The Royal in Cancun

Casual elegance is the vibe here and Luxury SPAzul, Cancun’s only ocean view eco spa, which offers Mayan inspired therapies, is the star attraction.

Treat yourself to a full body scrub prior to working on a healthy tan and a dazzling choice of massage and beauty treatments guaranteed to soothe tired muscles and take years off. Rooms are spacious and all have ocean views while the peach of beach and luxurious hotel pools afford peaceful spots for splashing about or a lazy afternoon snooze.
