Bright sun, white sand and blue sea – this seems ideal for holiday season, no? In December, Auberge Resorts Collection inaugurates its latest luxury resort in Mexico, located in the new Kanai development on the Riviera Maya. And it’s the perfect place for a winter getaway this year.

Etéréo, the Spanish word for “ethereal” or heavenly, is built in a lush mangrove forest that adjoins a white sand beach. This stretch of beach is especially appealing as the region’s largest reef is just 250 feet into the Caribbean Sea from shore.

There are 75 studios and suites, each with a water view (where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea), which is a rarity for Riviera Maya Resorts, plus a private outdoor area to enjoy those views. Studios measure 875 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling windows that blur the line between indoor and outdoor environments, private plunge pools, and wood walls carved by artist Manuel Felguerez. Suites start at 1,375 square feet and go up to 3,925 square feet, and they come with the added benefit of butler service. (Additionally, the two- and three-bedroom penthouses also have outdoor hot tubs on the private terraces of their master bedrooms.) All accommodations are outfitted with furniture, artwork, and decorations made by local artisans. .

As for the on-site culinary offerings, Etéréo offers the Mayan-inspired restaurant Itzam, as well as four specialty dining options: the El Carrito cart that sells coffee, paletas (alcoholic!), Agua frescas, and cocktails; the Alberca by the pool for light snacks and cocktails; Che Che, who specializes in Nikkei cuisine that blends Japanese, Peruvian and Brazilian elements; and El Changarro, which offers dining on the sand and a menu based on the local catch of the day. For the well-being, there’s Sana, a Spa Inn – and, of course, there’s the beach and the sea, so you can spend your afternoon snorkeling in the nearby reef.
