LAIDBACK LUXURY IN KANAI
The Riviera Maya EDITION at Kanai opened on February 27, 2024.
Sited on a 620-acre nature reserve with two miles of pristine white-sand beaches, The Riviera Maya EDITION at Kanai rises up from a forest of mangroves to introduce a completely new concept of sustainable luxury to the Caribbean coastline. Featuring 182 guest rooms and suites, a lagoon-sized pool, versatile meeting spaces, a state-of-the-art ballroom, and North America’s largest penthouse suite, Mexico’s first EDITION marries its signature brand of hospitality with the Yucatan Peninsula’s modern and ancient cultures.
A destination in and of itself, The Riviera Maya EDITION brings two of Mexico’s most renowned chef-restauranteurs to Kanai through five food and beverage venues including an innovative tasting menu by Chef Paco Ruano and a Mediterranean-inspired beach club by Chef Tomas Bermudez. Complete the holistic experience through a cenote-inspired destination spa to live in harmony with the surroundings of The Riviera Maya EDITION.
Designed with a minimal environmental footprint to protect and preserve Kanai’s ecosystem, the ancient Mayan land delivers nothing short of its name, meaning “Paradise on Earth”.
