Etéreo, Auberge Resorts Collection, Riviera Maya.
Auberge Resorts Collection to Manage Etéreo on Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Riviera Maya is a coastal paradise, renowned for its mangroves and lagoons, ancient Mayan cities, tropical beaches, ecological reserves and the world's second largest coral reef. Etéreo - Spanish for "ethereal" - is located on a timeless and pristine oceanfront site that is remarkable for its lush mangrove gardens and an expansive white-sand beach.
Featuring 75 contemporary guesthouses, an Auberge Spa and two dining venues, the resort is a collection of patinaed coral stone structures designed with modern Mayan references and elevated to seemingly float like islands among fields of dense tropical vegetation. The different areas of the resort are laced together by a series of wooden boardwalks and pathways. The enclave, which will have a highly residential feel, will tread lightly on the land and offer stunning ocean views.
Each of the guesthouses at Etéreo will have dramatic ocean views of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea and offer floor-to-ceiling windows, large terraces, private plunge pools and expansive sliding doors for extraordinary indoor-outdoor living. Both the architecture and interiors will juxtapose contemporary materials with regionally inspired design elements and natural materials.
The resort will offer several intriguing dining venues, notably, a world-class restaurant, a cornerstone of every Auberge resort, featuring a modern interpretation of artisanal Mexican dishes in a relaxed setting overlooking the ocean. At the water's edge will be a beach club with a long infinity-edge swimming pool and a casual beachside bar.
The Auberge Spa will be located in a unique and memorable island setting overlooking a sea of mangroves and accessed by an elevated walkway. Treatment rooms will feature private gardens with outdoor showers and baths, and fitness and yoga pavilions will be integrated into the natural environment. Spa treatments will take their inspiration from local healing traditions and the Mayan reverence for the celestial.
Situated on the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Mayan Rivera's lush lagoons and pristine mangroves, Etéreo is located just 24 miles from Cancun International Airport and six miles from Playa del Carmen.
