special section Resorts Le Blanc Spa Resort Standout service, five-star style
Awarded the AAA Five-Star designation and consistently ranked as the No. 1 hotel in Can- cun on TripAdvisor.com, Palace Resorts’ Le Blanc Spa Resort is an adults-only, all-inclu- sive resort that is redefining the meaning of luxury. Twenty-four-hour butler service, a private beach, and tropical drinks on arrival are just the beginning. All of the resort’s 260 guest rooms and suites come with balconies, butler-prepared Jacuzzi baths, and a “Com- fort Menu,” offering everything from aroma- therapies to a selection of pillows. For groups, the level of service and
sophistication is just as decadent. Le Blanc Spa Resort’s third floor has 8,000 square feet of meeting space, including two ballrooms that can be divided into breakout rooms. An
adjacent patio overlooking Nichupte Lagoon offers space for banquets of up to 200 guests. Creative meeting themes inspired by the local culture — like “Mayan World” and “Viva Mexico” — add a touch of flair to celebrations and receptions. Dining at Le Blanc Spa Resort means a
new journey at every meal. Eight on-site restaurants, bars, and lounges — each with its own unique ambiance and style — fea- ture fine cuisine and wines from around the world. The resort’s newest restaurant, Lumi- ere, serves French-fusion cuisine along with a wine list of vintages that all have a Wine Spectator score of 90 or above. The 46-seat restaurant offers an eight-course tasting menu that changes seasonally.
Le Blanc Spa, the resort’s centerpiece, is
a tranquil haven for relaxation with bamboo gardens, hydrotherapy facilities, and 19 treat- ment rooms, including the 800-square-foot Golden Spa Suite — perfect for VIPs. Active groups will also find plenty to do on site and nearby, from the fitness center’s Pilates and yoga classes to tours of the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza and in Tulum. Golf enthusiasts can choose from three nearby courses: the 18-hole Playacar Golf Course, and two Jack Nicklaus–designed courses at Riviera Cancun Golf & Resort and Moon Spa & Golf Club.
One and done Beyond its five-star-rated service, the best part about meeting at the all-inclusive Le Blanc Spa Resort is that everything — from meeting space to taxes and gratuities — is included in one, up-front rate.
