Waldorf Astoria Cancun

The Yucatan Peninsula’s sophisticated hideaway

A half-hour drive from the Cancun airport and tucked among 100 acres of mangroves, Waldorf Astoria Cancun offers an elegant oceanside hideaway. Opened in 2022 as the first Waldorf Astoria in the Mexican Caribbean and the second in Mexico (the first was Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal), the 173-room hotel includes three restaurants, two cocktail bars, a full-service spa, a fitness studio, two infinity pools and a private beach.

Enter through the grand wooden doors of the hotel and be transported to a coastal-chic haven. The lobby is outfitted with a signature Waldorf Astoria clock, local art and calming blue and neutral-toned accents. Beyond the lobby, a patio dotted with fire pits overlooks the ocean and two infinity pools below. The bright, modern rooms have clean lines and beautiful décor, along with all the touchpoints you deserve, such as an expansive bathroom with two vanities, a private balcony, a Nespresso maker and Aesop toiletries.

With its own pool, the luxury Cancun hotel’s stunning spa features both indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, an ice fountain, a sauna, a salon and just the setting for a sanctuary.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Caribbean Sea views and a water feature are yours, no matter which room you book. Balcony soaking pools are on floors two to six and plunge pools reside in first-floor accommodations.
  • Don’t miss a meal at Waldorf Cancun’s signature restaurant, Malpeque, which specializes in open-flame grilling. Request an alfresco table poolside and order the local fish of the day or the smoky grilled octopus.
  • Using local ingredients like peyote and treatments incorporating Mayan healing traditions such as white smoke cleansing, the 40,000-square-foot Waldorf Astoria Cancun spa is worthy of your precious vacation time.
  • You will want to linger in the shower, since the book-matched marble rain shower has floor-to-ceiling windows peeking out to the water.
  • Throughout the Cancun hotel, from housekeepers to pool concierges, the staff shines with a warm and attentive touch.

Things to Know

  • You can purchase day passes to enjoy the all-inclusive perks of Hilton Cancun, the Waldorf Astoria’s sister property next door. Standout amenities include complimentary childcare at the kids club, nightly shows, a splash pad and five specialty restaurants.
