The phrase all-inclusive might make you think of cruise ships and Vegas, but if the phrase is used in conjunction with Paradisus, you’re in for a treat. The ­Paradisus ­Cancún — previously the Gran Meliá Cancún resort — was converted and reopened late last year with “luxeclusive” results. The 668-suite resort offers four pools, acres of private beaches, a swim-up bar, a nine-hole golf course, the full-service YHI Spa and Health Club and even a Kid’s Club. Whether staying in the ultraposh, adults-only Royal Service suites, the Family Concierge suites or the standard deluxe suites, guests can access 14 bars and restaurants ranging from an extensive international buffet at Naos to Latin-­fusion cuisine at Fuego, Asian cuisine at Bana and more. The resort’s newest restaurant, Tempo by Martin Berasategui (who happens to be a Michelin star–awarded chef), boasts an eight-course tasting menu that features fresh, locally sourced products in dishes­ like lobster salad, tomatoes stuffed with baby squid, baked sea bass and veal tenderloin­ in a Périgueux sauce. The Tempo experience is included in the meal plan for Royal Service and Family Concierge guests who stay a minimum of seven nights, and it is available to other hotel guests, as well as the public, for an additional charge.
