Once an unassuming fishing village on the edge of the Caribbean, the coastal community of Playa del Carmen, though still decidedly mellow, has transformed into a cosmopolitan community catering to discerning travelers from around the globe.

With this Escape to the boutique Kinbe Hotel, just 50 meters from the beach, you'll get a four-night stay for two between now and December 20, 2012, in a Moody ($277) or Rugiada Room ($369). Or stay January 4 to March 31, 2013, or April 1 to June 30, 2013 in a Moody ($399) or Rugiada Room ($419).

Daily continental breakfast, all-access passes to the Indigo Beach Club, and a bottle of red or white Italian wine are also included with your stay.

Situated just half a block from the beach on Playa del Carmen's trendy 5th Avenue, this stylish spot offers access to the bustle of a city center while maintaining an atmosphere of calm serenity. Maybe that's why it's a Fodor's Choice hotel, named among the best spots in Playa del Carmen. Upon entering the lobby, you'll cross an onyx bridge spanning an illuminated pool accented by a three-story cascading waterfall. And that's just check-in.

Rugiada rooms are modern and spacious, with views of the glowing pool from a private balcony. They come with a king-size bed and private bath with jetted shower, plasma TV, complimentary Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. Moody rooms offer the same amenities, plus views of verdant foliage in the hotel's tropical garden.

Each room features funky-chic furnishings: ornamental light fixtures, asymmetrical sinks, wispy curtains, and floor lamps that seem to sprout right out of the hardwood or tile floors.

Laze around by the pool or bask in the sun on the hotel's resplendent rooftop deck, which offers white-cloth loungers and dazzling views of blue sky and even bluer ocean.

Let the multilingual staff hook you up with an in-room massage, or cast off your inhibitions and go catch a few waves with your fellow travelers at the Indigo Beach Club, where you can also reserve a lounge chair and an umbrella and soak up the serenity.

Come nightfall, shell out a few clams at Playa's main drag, 5th Avenue, where you'll find endless dining, dancing, and shopping options. Along with picking up locally crafted souvenirs, you might just acquire a taste for local tequila, too.

It's all here on the Riviera Maya, a place where worries wash away with the tides, sun worshippers bow to the gods, and cosmopolitan style—from Milan to Mexico City—is just part of the everyday.

  • "An interesting fusion of Mayan and contemporary decor, this small, stylish place is set in a tropical garden steps from the beach."
