The St. Regis Kanai Resort, Riviera Maya is a mystical paradise honouring ancient Maya civilization and inspired by the neighboring 620-acre nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site on which they once inhabited along Mexico’s glistening Yucatán Peninsula. Owned by Grupo Alhel with architecture by Edmonds International, the resort is a short drive from both Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The design breathes life and magic into the Kanai region with its avant-garde architecture, inviting interiors, and enchanted storytelling. Lead by Chapi Chapo Design’s Co-Founder and Partner, Tatiana Sheveleva, the design awakens the wonders of the region, from the luxuriant biodiversity of its natural parks and the mysticism of its cenotes, to the vivid blues of its ocean and the cultural richness of its archaeological sites.

The resort boasts 124 lavishly appointed guestrooms including 19 suites with a 2,300 sq. ft. Presidential Suite, each offering mesmerizing ocean views and a private terrace or plunge pool. The spacious guestrooms feature design elements and rich materials evoking the surrounding elements from the mangrove trees and nearby cenotes to the stars above. Guestrooms feature custom hanging mirrors, bedside tables, ceramic light pendants, and intricate walnut wood-carved headboards. Guests of all room categories will also have access to the St. Regis Signature Butler Service. The resort also features eight incredible culinary venues, The St. Regis Spa with eight treatment suites and a standalone salon, Children’s Club and 50,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor event space across six distinguished meeting venues all designed by Chapi Chapo Design.
