Receive the VIP treatment while staying in luxurious Cancun

Situated right in the centre of the Yucatan Peninsula, you can be stretched out on Cancun’s glorious shores in no time, as flights from the UK will get you here in 10 hours.

Cancun needs to be experienced on the ocean – that’s why most of the region’s 5* luxury hotels are situated on the shoreline. You’ll not only be given the VIP treatment but also will have out-of-this world views of the Caribbean sea. Cancun has over 24 kilometres of beaches, many of which are affiliated with their own hotel, giving you private access to white sands and warm water. Cancun’s fabulous weather means you’ll be able to swim in the ocean any time of year, with the summer months making you feel as though you’re taking a relaxing dip in the bath.

Cancun is more than just beach, though – it also has fantastic high-end shopping areas and fine dining restaurants as well as one-of-a kind day out activities that are sure to make this holiday one for the books.

Living the high life in Cancun

Cancun is the ideal spot to relish in luxurious lifestyle habits.

If you’re looking to get out of your hotel and do a bit of shopping the Plaza Las Americas and Plaza Kukula mall have chic designer stores and high-end fashion boutiques for you to peruse through. There’s also yacht and catamaran sailing tours available that will take you into the heart of the ocean for snorkelling and gorgeous views around Mexico.
