Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Nizuc Resort & Spa feels like its own corner of the Earth, set in acres of tropical gardens, backing onto a white sandy beach, and surrounded by a mangrove reserve teeming with wildlife. Combine that with world-class restaurants, bars and spa facilities, and we bet that you'll find it pretty difficult to leave.

Rooms at Nizuc Resort & Spa

Nizuc's rooms and suites are beautifully designed, with dark colour schemes, Aztec-style rugs and Asian-inspired wooden blinds. The Ocean Suites feature a private balcony from which to take in the view of the Caribbean Sea, while Garden Suites have views over the surrounding mangroves, and some suites have their own private pools.

Thoughtfully, the hotel has an adults-only section offering several spacious ocean view suites, as well as an adults-only outdoor pool.

Food & Drink

Nizuc’s impressive high-end restaurants represent traditions from across the world. The Ramona restaurant offers delicious contemporary takes on classic regional dishes, while at Indochine, there’s a variety of Asian cuisines represented, including Thai and Indonesian, and hearty Mediterranean dishes can be enjoyed at Terra Nostra.

For a post-dinner drink, head to one of the hotel’s stylish lounges. Caribbean rums and Cuban cigars are on offer at the Havana Lounge.

Please be aware that there is a dress code at Nizuc at all of its restaurants, including trousers, collared shirts and closed shoes for men, and evening wear for women.


Nizuc’s main pool is set around its own bar, meaning you don’t even have to get out of the water to enjoy a mezcal cocktail or local beer. There’s another relaxing pool at the hotel’s spa, a stylish space with a range of therapies. These include a variety of Mayan-inspired treatments, encompassing hydrotherapy, healing stones, aromatic herbs, heated gemstones and agave.

Activities at Nizuc Resort & Spa

Outdoorsy types will love Nizuc, and if you've had enough of doing nothing in the spa or pool, there's a number of activities to indulge in. The resort's sheltered beach has calm, crystal-clear waters perfect for snorkelling and paddle boarding. Kayaking is also a great way to explore the coastline, or if that sounds like too much work, take a trip on the hotel's private yacht.

In the evening, enjoy sultry performances of Cuban jazz by talented Latin American musicians at one of the hotel's bars.
