Lavish Resort on a Beach
Straddling the electric blue Mexican Caribbean and Cancun Island's quiet Nichupte Lagoon, the five-star Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas beckons travelers to its beach with a magnificent pink stucco façade. Palm fronds stand sentinel outside the dramatically lit entrance, guiding the way to the lobby, where the soaring ceilings, polished marble floors, and elegant lounge furniture announce the Omni's commitment to an utterly restful experience.
In a Deluxe Lagoon View room, which includes two double beds or one king bed, Omni guests step into opulence. Marble floors cool beach-warmed feet as they stroll toward the spacious balcony, where becushioned, built-in lounge benches invite long admirations of brilliant lagoon sunsets. A flight of pillows in different firmnesses, along with carefully chosen tropical linens, swathe the bed, blending smoothly with the modern, chic, Mexican décor. Purified tap water flows from the complete marble bath, and the near-silent, adjustable air-conditioning system keeps humidity at bay.
An expansive beach stretches out its white sandy arms to sun seekers, and lush tropical gardens stand guard over three cascading, zero-grade-entry swimming pools. An inviting, shallow children's pool, complete with a droplet-spraying sun fountain, entices little travelers, and adults unwind in the 35-seat mega jacuzzi, work out in the fitness center, or swap soggy screenplays at the swim-up pool bar. The all-inclusive package includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all beverages by the glass from room service or any of the seven on-site restaurants and bars, as well as taxes and gratuities.
Cancun: Ancient, Breathtaking Beauty with Waterside Fun
The Omni Hotel & Villas nestles itself 10 miles from the bright lights of downtown Cancun, comfortably close to a diversity of family-friendly activities and archeological sites. The famous, climbable Mayan Ruinas del Rey arise just a mile from the resort; history buffs can get their fill at the Cancun Archeological Museum, located in the Cancun Convention Center and home to approximately 800 Mayan cultural artifacts.
Back at the hotel, the all-inclusive package includes waterside sports and organized social activities at AquaWorld Marina. Nearby, families can splash through elaborate water parks, pet manta rays and see sharks up close at an interactive aquarium, or partake in tropical activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, or dolphin debating.
Resort restaurants proffer choices enough to keep guests noshing in-house for the duration of their trip, boasting five styles of eateries, including Italian fare at the Da Vinci Restaurant, fresh seafood served beachside at the Pina Colada eatery, and authentic Mexican cuisine at La Paloma. Those hungry for more can grab a cab to downtown Cancun, populated with popular chains and unassuming, local establishments.
