The private gated community is located away from the crowds in an area of lush tropical foliage and with amenities including a full-service marina, golf course and beach.
The 42-accomodation boutique hotel is set among palm-treed filled jungle adjacent to the Caribbean lagoon. KASA Hotel Riviera Maya will offer oversized rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites, including three Penthouse suites with pool and terrace, as well as the KASA Cooper Private Villa. All accommodations will be equipped with flat screen televisions, air conditioning, WiFi, coffee maker and in-room safe. Local organic toiletries will add to the Mexican experience.

A restaurant and bar overseen by Chef Gilberto Canto Pool whose credentials include the KOCINA Restaurant and SUR Steakhouse in Playa del Carmen, will serve three meals daily as well as light bites at the bar throughout the day. The menu will be oriented towards modern Mexican cuisine using seafood and local Mayan ingredients such as chaya and chocolate delicacies. A private chef can be arranged as can romantic or family dinners on the beach. Should guests prefer to dine en suite, the hotel will take care of pre-arrival grocery shopping.
Families are welcome at the hotel. The hotel will feature an infinity-edged pool and a swim-up bar, with lots of toys for the little ones to use both in and out of the pool. A frequent shuttle takes guests to the nearby beach and beach club on the Caribbean Sea, which is also within walking distance from the hotel.
