New 2021 Mexico and Caribbean Luxury

Overview


If you are like me, you can’t wait to get out again and see some new places. Fortunately, travel advisor extraordinaire Jack Ezon, the founder of EmbarkBeyond, has been out and about, keeping track of new hotel and resort openings scheduled for 2021.

The latest creation by Grace Bay Resorts, Rock House features the longest infinity pool in Turks and Caicos, this 100-foot pool sits dramatically on a 25-foot limestone cliff overlooking a dramatic secluded beach reminiscent of the French Riviera. This all-residential resort estate will upon completion feature 40 fully serviced homes with private pools, uber-modern style, and full hotel services.


2. Kimpton, Roatan

Located off the shore of Honduras, the sleepy island of Roatan is getting a wake-up call with the addition of the trendy Kimpton that will deliver its edgy lifestyle concept with 126 guest rooms (including 43 suites) and amenities like a rooftop sky bar with a glass-fronted pool.

3. The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City



Offering striking views of Chapultepec Park, the Ritz-Carlton’s 153 rooms are among the highest in the city. The hotel is located in the heart of the burgeoning financial center. (July, 2021)

This villa resort in Virgin Gorda comes with a complete staff and resort facilities. Available for buy-outs only, Valley Trunk has been fully restored to its polished glory following near destruction by Hurricane Irma.


7. Paradero Todos Santos - Baja Sur, Mexico



Located 1 ½ hours northwest of Cabos San Lucas, the Paradero is a desert eco-resort perfect to spot Wile e Coyote. Each of the six treehouse accommodations are done up in an organic-bohemian style, overlook the cacti-laden desert and distant sea. But this is not a place to come to just sit on the beach. It is an incredible base camp for desert explorations by mountain bike, hike, surf, hummer, or ATV. Guests can participate in farming, foraging, gardening in the 100,000 sq. ft. desert garden, and even preparing their own farm-to-table dinner.


8. Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, México



Located in a protected eco-reserve along Mexico’s Pacific Coast just outside Manzanillo this 155 room eco-resort from Four Seasons will boast a lush 18-hole, par 72, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and David Fleming designed links golf course. Rooms are terraced down the lush mountainside with exceptional panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean with its own small, though dramatically set private beach. (Q4, 2021)

Facilities include 3 pools, an impressive spa, and a kids club.


10. Etereo, Auberge Collection, Riviera Maya



Auberge Resorts’ first outpost on Mexico’s Eastern Coast, will boat 85 contemporary guesthouses all with plunge pools and ocean views, which is quite unique in the area. Set alongside a pristine beach, the resort features an Auberge Spa, two restaurants, and pools all laid out among a collection of painted coral stone structures that seemingly float above mangroves and designed with modern Mayan style with a highly residential feel. (November, 2021)


11. The St. Regis Bermuda Resort



Just outside historic St. George, this 120-room beachfront resort is uniquely situated with buildings just steps from the sand and two beachfront pools. Fusing contemporary design with classic Bermuda style, St. Regis is poised to become Bermuda’s crowd-pleasing luxury beachfront resort.
