Located in southeast Mexico on the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula overlooking the Caribbean Sea, Cancún boasts 14 miles of white sand beaches. It also has world-class golf and both dining and nightlife options that rival those of Miami or New York. All of that, combined with temperate weather between 70 and 90 degrees most months, makes it a picture-perfect option virtually any time of the year. But the picture-perfect stay requires picture-perfect accommodations. It requires a little WOW factor. Enter Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancún.
After earning five TripAdvisor honors in 2018—including Best Luxury Hotel in Mexico—as well as taking home a Travvy Gold Award for Best All-inclusive Luxury Resort and earning a spot in U.S. Travel News Report’s Best Hotels in Mexico, Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun did the unthinkable: it closed.
After nearly a year of multi-million dollar renovation, the adults-only, all-inclusive resort re-opened in 2019, revealing stunning upgrades, even by luxury resort standards.

Accommodations at Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun
The facelift begins upon entering the grand marble and onyx granite-adorned lobby. There, guests are greeted with welcome cocktails and escorted to their rooms or suites.
The traditional rooms on the property boast plush upgrades to furnishing and décor as well as butler service, 24-hour room service, Apple televisions with access to Netflix and iTunes, whirlpool tubs, Wi-Fi, purified water, and Bvlgari brand personal products. All guests can also enjoy several unique menus, including a specialty pillow menu, bath salt menu, and aromatherapy menu. Each room is also outfitted with its own liquor dispensers with brand-name labels of whisky, rum, tequila, and vodka.
The suites take extravagance even higher, boasting expansive ocean or lagoon views and ranging in size from 460 to nearly 1,000-square-feet. In addition to the above-noted amenities, suite guests can expect an upgraded personal liquor cabinet. French doors open to their own private patios. Double showerheads in the bathroom transform it into a spa experience. Suite guests also get espresso machines, nightly goodies including wine, petit fours, and more.
Dining at Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun
Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun took extra care to ensure long-time guests’ favorite eateries stayed true to their roots. New to the resort is an elevated take on authentic Mexican fare called Blanc, as well as a Japanese concept called Yama. Michelin-starred chef Giuseppe Iannotti helped develop Bella, the new Italian offering on-site. The décor at Bella—delicate glass art and several chandeliers dripping in crystals—is nearly as impressive as the multi-course offerings.
The most formal restaurant on property is Lumiere. It impresses with nightly tasting menus and wine pairings as well as an impressively inventive cocktail menu. Want to impress your plus one? Plan a chef’s tasting. It rivals Michelin star restaurants stateside.
Activities at Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun
Speaking of cocktails, all are on the house at the resort. They use top-shelf brands ranging from Johnnie Walker red and black labels to Grey Goose, Don Julio, and Tanqueray. Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun offers dozens of wines ranked 80 points or higher available 24 hours a day. There are also regular mixology classes on-site several times a week. The mixology classes benefit from what feels like a 24/7 tincture and infusion magician on-site. And I am only half-kidding.
For those looking for music and nightlife to accompany those drinks, look no further than Cava lounge, which has a nightly DJ as well as pool tables and flat screens.
A quieter option is the renovated Blanc Spa, which all guests may use throughout their stays. It features a sauna, steam room, ice room, Jacuzzis, cold and warm lagoons, warm beds, showers, and private dressing rooms. For those wishing to book a spa service, available for an additional charge, the refurbished treatment suites include a master suite with hydro-tub, seven couples suites, 11 single suites, one suite with a private Vichy shower, and one golden VIP suite, which is tailor-made for groups.
As with the spa, any guest staying at Le Blanc Cancun can indulge in daily golf at the nearby and award-winning Moon Spa & Golf Club, as well as transportation to and from the course and club food and drink options. The Club features 27 holes of golf as well as the Moon Palace Golf Academy. There, guests can learn the techniques and playing philosophy of Jack Nicklaus under the guidance of certified instructors, and with integrated state-of-the-art technology.
Tours Around Cancun
For those seeking a little more adventure during their stay, Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun offers day trips, snorkeling excursions, sailing, and more for added fees. Of particular note is the resort’s Tulum Express tour, which whisks guests off to the archaeological site of a pre-Colombian Mayan walled city.
Those seeking something a little more heart-stopping might opt for the Aquatwister, which is the jet boat ride of a lifetime. The boat spins 270 degrees and flies across the water, taking guests through the emerald-green Nichupte Lagoon and mangrove channels as well as offering the opportunity to snorkel.
There are also half and full-day open-water snorkel options, including the chance to snorkel at the nearby Isla Mujeres island. There are also opportunities to swim with dolphins.
The concierge team can customize tours to your group’s tastes and offer recommendations in nearby dining and nightlife options, including the audacious Coco Bongo (expect acrobats, bubbles, and explosions), the lavish and glamorous Palazzo Cancún, and oft-celebrity filled Dady’O Cancún.
