The Riviera Maya EDITION
On December 7, 2023, The Riviera Maya EDITION at Kanai made its highly anticipated debut on the Yucatan Peninsula. Built on a 620-acre nature reserve with 2 miles of white sand beachfront, the EDITION houses 182 guestrooms, including 30 suites, with many rooms featuring plunge pools and terraces.
There are 6 food and beverage outlets, including EDITION’s signature restaurant, KI’IS (a Mayan word that translates to “zest”), a pool bar and beach club, a destination cenote-inspired spa, and an expansive 27,000-square-foot penthouse suite.
The hotel’s location in Riviera Maya is known for its mangroves and lagoons, ancient Mayan cities, tropical beaches, ecological reserves, and the second-largest coral reef in the world.
Set within Kanai, a new luxury resort community, EDITION joins a St. Regis property that opened earlier this year.Hot Tip:
