rom the moment we opened the sleek wooden doors
to our guest rooms, revealing a 409-sf oasis bathed in
blue and sand hues with modern furnishings and floor-toceiling windows, we knew we had arrived. Our destination:
the 314-room and -suite Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen
Resort, located a breezy 45-minute drive from Mexico's Cancun
International Airport and steps from the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

therapeutic treatment at the Cenote Spa, designed to resemble the
sacred wells the Mayas believed to be a portal to the underworld.
We recommend them all. The resort also arranges offsite
adventures to Coba Maya Village, the Tulum ruins, ChichenItza, and following a 30-minute boat ride, to Cozumel, one of the
best sites for scuba diving in the world.

VIVA LA VIDA (LIVE LIFE)
PICK YOUR PARADISE
The resort's ambiance, imagined by Mexican architect Sordo
Madaleno and the New York-based Rockwell Group, embodies
the spirit of Playa del Carmen through natural elements, artwork,
textures and light. There are 13 room categories to choose from,
including the upgraded Grand Club level, where attendees receive
private check-in and checkout, concierge service and access to
a private lounge where continental breakfast and hors d'oeuvres
are served daily. Meeting planners also have 15,000 sf of
meeting space, including the stunning Grand Ballroom, to create
memorable gatherings.

A GRAND EXPERIENCE
With just one day left to make the most out of our time at the
Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort, we had a difficult time

or Fifth Avenue, for sushi and ice cream, or maybe a tailored

Want to earn brownie points with attendees? Suggest lunch at
Frida Kahlo Restaurante, a block from the resort on La Quinta
Avenida. At Frida, a large and colorful mural depicting the late artist
in her signature flower crown provides a grand entrance to the
open-air restaurant. The whimsical chain, laden with re-creations of
Kahlo's famous works, opened around two years ago and features
a refreshed menu of appetizers, salads, soups, main dishes and
desserts, such as the pina para la nina appetizer-a take on tacos
al pastor served on pineapple rather than tortillas.
After lunch, we headed downstairs to the new Museo Frida
Kahlo for a private tour chronicling Kahlo's tumultuous life. The
moving tribute features family photos, love letters from Diego
Rivera, and an interactive portrayal of Kahlo's famous accident
where attendees experience the ordeal as though they were
passengers on the bus using headphones, as well as realistic and
abstract graphic displays. Our tour ended in front of an enlarged
photo of Frida Kahlo's last painting "Viva La Vida," a still life with
watermelons celebrating life and all of its complexities.
