Located on the paradisiacal island of Cozumel in the Mexican Caribbean and surrounded by crystalline turquoise waters, Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa is a one-of-a-kind destination for an unforgettable experience.
The resort is next to the Cozumel Coral Reef National Park, home to one of the world’s largest coral reef systems. Choose from 218 rooms with a private balcony or terrace showcasing contemporary Mexican design. The two Presidential Suites stand out for their luxury. The Sapphire and Emerald suites pamper guests with large, comfortable spaces, game table, dining room set, two pools, lounge chairs, a rain shower, L’Occitane amenities, and next- generation technology.
Each guest’s stay is complemented with a world-class culinary experience, a hallmark of properties operated by Grupo Presidente and the Presidente InterContinenal Cozumel Resort & Spa is no exception, highlighted by four specialty restaurants that stand out for their varied menus and cocktails:
– El Caribeño is a spectacular seaside restaurant that gives visitors an unparalleled view under the shade of an enormous palapa palm roof. El Caribeño serves Mexican, regional, and international dishes, and is the perfect option for a romantic dinner by the sea.
– Trattoria Alfredo is a classical Italian restaurant that fuses northern Italian cooking with fresh seafood. The house specialty is the authentic Fettucine Alfredo, while professional sommeliers will guide diners through a wide selection of Mexican and international wines.
– Le Cap Beach Club takes its inspiration from Mediterranean beach lounges and offers seafood and steaks cooked over wood-fired ovens and grills. The seaside lounge area and private cabañas on the ocean dock are perfect for enjoying refreshing drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.
– Faro Blanco, the hotel’s newest restaurant, showcases dishes with coastal influences and aromatic herbs combined with delicacies from the sea and a gorgeous view of the bay in a relaxing surrounding for all the senses. On the terrace diners can enjoy exquisite grilled fare, ceviche tastings and classes, and even practice yoga.
The icing on the cake is the recently redesigned Ikal Spa, a sanctuary for wellness and relaxation for the body, mind, and soul that offers a wide range of body and facial treatments. In Mayan culture Ikal means “In search of the spirit,” which is precisely the Spa’s objective, accomplished through advanced therapeutic techniques combined with traditional Mayan rituals. Ikal Spa is divided into the Hydrotherapy Circuit, Relaxation Zone, Private Cabins, the Beauty Salon, and the Temazcal. The signature treatment is the Traditional Mayan Temazcal, consisting of a purification ceremony based on ancient traditional medicine. During this ritual your spiritual, mental, and physical levels come together with transformative effects.
Ikal Spa has six private cabins, each with a unique style aligned with the services offered. The Ixchel cabin, for example, is specially designed for the Romantic Escape treatment for two. Couples are treated to massages with aromatic candle therapy followed by intimate space alone in the private jacuzzi with sparkling wine, among other services.
The hotel also offers the “Planet Trekkers” program designed for children aged 5 to 12. Here our youngest guests have fun with a variety of activities including feeding the iguanas, painting ceramics, making bracelets, cookies, and sandcastles, and games on the beach and in the pool, all under professional supervision.
To pick up snacks, gifts, and other travel essentials, guests can drop into the boutique shop “La Clásica”, which offers a wide range of accessories, magazines, original souvenirs, travel items, and personal amenities, among other items.
In addition to being a “Virtuoso” hotel, Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa has won multiple awards within Mexico and internationally. These include recognition from National Geographic for our work promoting environmentally conscious diving, the IHG Quality Excellence Award in 2016, 2017, and 2018, the World’s Best Diving & Resort in 2015 by Sport Dive, 2018 Readers’ Choice Award for diving, Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor the last five years, among other awards given by AAA Diamond Award and Wine Spectator.
The resort is ideal for celebrating weddings and social events as well as romantic moonlit dinners. Families and groups of friends can enjoy unforgettable nighttime reveries around a fire, toasting marshmallows and other treats under a star-filled typical island night.
Cozumel is part of the second-largest coral barrier reef system in the world. The coral system is ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling and offers out-of-this-world underwater experiences. The hotel has an in-house dive center, the PADI 5-Star, Gold Palm-awarded Scuba Du, which offers personalized services and makes safety the priority for every dive.
