The luxury Cancun resort Live Aqua was named Top Mexican Resort in Travel + Leisure's 2012 World's Best Awards. The all-inclusive adult-only hotel, part of the Fiesta Americana family, is located in the Hotel Zone at km 12.5 and has 335 rooms and 36 suites. The number one ranking is especially surprising as the hotel was unranked in 2011.
Live Aqua focuses on guest experiences and sensations and caters to all five of the senses; it's "designed exclusively for modern adults seeking a place to be themselves." The resort considers itself a luxury hotel, but without any pretension. Unique features include in-room aromatherapy menus, international gourmet dining options created under the watchful eye of celebrity chef Eric De Maeyer, a world class spa, an in-house DJ and unparalleled views of the turquoise-blue Caribbean Sea. Imagine private cabanas, a pool concierge, eight swimming pools of varying temperatures and ambient music. Paradise found.
Votes for Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards are collected in a consumer questionnaire and focus on five resort characteristics: room/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value. In addition to their top Travel + Leisure ranking, Live Aqua Cancun was also named one of the best hotels worldwide in the Expedia World's Best-Reviewed Hotels 2012.
