Hotel Xcaret Arte 

Come for the spa, the space and the comfort

An adults-only haven with unlimited access to a host of adventure parks.

The grown-up sister of neighbouring Hotel Xcaret features the same wildly popular concepts – fantastic dining, stunning river networks, a hydrotherapy spa and an all-inclusive activity programme – but elevates them to adults-only. Dining is in dramatically designed restaurants; sophisticated suites feature hammocks on the terrace and pools are a great mix of serenity and fun.

Why we love Hotel Xcaret Arte

  • Dance, pottery, weaving and painting workshops are included in the All-Fun Inclusive® Package.
