Chablé MaromaWhy We Love It You don’t have to sacrifice barefoot luxury for world-class cuisine. Highlights: -Don’t miss the sunsets—preferably mezcal in hand—at the rooftop raw bar. -Though the infinity pool earns rave reviews, the white-sand beach just beyond doesn’t disappoint. -Feel free to skip the big breakfast: Fresh pastries and Chiapas coffee arrive at your casita’s doorstep each morning. High-design havens and beachside idylls tend to be mutually exclusive, but at the sybaritic Chablé Maroma the two blend seamlessly. The 70 spacious stone-and-wood suites and villas nod to traditional Mayan architecture but up the ante with indoor-outdoor showers, private pools and terraces, and tech-friendly amenities like push-button drapery and motion-activated lighting in the baths. Palm-fringed walkways wind toward a show-stopping infinity pool on the shorefront, as well as two restaurants overseen by celebrity chef Jorge Vallejo that serve fresh-caught fish and Mexican specialties, from aguachile negro to octopus tacos. But the real highlight is the 17,000-square-foot spa, where guests can indulge in everything from dips in the hydrotherapy pools to a traditional temazcal ceremony performed by a local shaman.
