Maroma Resort & Spa, Solidaridad (Mayan Riviera)

it fronts a stunning powder-sand beach. Every night the hotel twinkles with hundreds of candles. The Kinan spa draws on Mayan
and Zen concepts with 30 types of treatments and a rooftop meditation pavilion overlooking the sea.
What makes it special: Dine above it all with a private meal in the hotel’s observation tower, offering 360-degree views of your slice of paradise.
