While there are enough resorts dotted along the powdery, white sand beaches of Cancun to satisfy the needs of everyone from honeymooners to spring breakers, there is one that stands out from the rest. The all-inclusive, adult-only Le Blanc Spa Resort, catering to those who appreciate first class service and luxury accommodations, provides an unparalleled experience in one of Mexico’s premier destinations.
Located just 25 minutes from the Cancun Airport, this 260-room luxury beachfront property is an adults-only resort, boasting suites with terraces, deep soaking spa tubs and panoramic ocean views. Guests will enjoy in-room amenities such as a scented pillow menu, BVLGARI bath products, aromatherapy menus, and a dedicated butler service. The room amenities also include fully stocked minibars, and liquor dispensers featuring premium brands such as Absolut, Bacardi, and Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky; all included, all free of charge. The décor is contemporary and minimal, all furnishings are white, with cream-colored marble flooring throughout.
There are three outdoor swimming pools; the main one, located as you exit the lobby, is a spectacular beachfront infinity pool offering a swim-up bar and in-water lounge chairs. Directly above, on the property’s third floor is another infinity pool, more subdued but with the same beautiful ocean views. Lastly, their lagoon pool, where activities such as aqua spinning, and water aerobics take place also offers a swim-up bar. All pools have attendants that are quick to offer you buckets of bottled water, a cool compress and even a cucumber eye treatment. The pristine beach offers lounge chairs, day beds (which must be reserved in advance and for a fee), and a beach bar.
The resort’s Spa has 19 Le Blanc D’Or treatment suites, including 4 master suites with hydrotherapy tubs, 3 indoor couples suites, 10 multifunctional suites, 1 Golden suite and 1 Vichy suite. The Spa’s hydrotherapy circuit is offered to all guests (free of charge) whether or not you have booked a spa treatment. From saunas and steam rooms to an ice room and a cold plunge pool, it’s the perfect activity during a rainy day (as I experienced while there). There is a fully equipped gym with daily yoga, stretching and Pilates classes.
In addition, the resort features five fine-dining restaurants with cuisines including French, Italian, Asian, and International. The main restaurant, “Blanc” offers breakfast and lunch buffets during the day, and an “a la carte” Mexican restaurant for dinner. The most formal dining option, “Lumiere,” serves French cuisine and is the only restaurant requiring a reservation. In the early evening hours the resort has live music in its lobby bar, while the late night ushers in a DJ or live show at their third-floor club, “Cavo.” Every night you can dance the night away to music ranging from Rock and Pop to Raggaeton and Hip Hop. I was fortunate enough to see a Michael Jackson tribute show while there, as well as a classic rock band. Needless to say, the evenings are never boring at Le Blanc Spa Resort.
To sum it up, the resort is hip yet sophisticated; luxurious yet relaxed. Basically, Le Blanc Spa Resort is everything you could want from an upscale property, and a must visit when planning your next trip to Cancun.
