Etéreo Fact Sheet

Etéreo – Spanish for “ethereal” - something spiritual and heavenly — and so ties into the sense of spiritual renewal and the celestial connection that's central to the Mayan culture. Located on a timeless and pristine oceanfront site that is remarkable for its lush and expansive gardens of lush greenery and 300 meter long, white-sand beach. The resort is a collection of patinated coral stone structures designed with modern Mayan references.


  • Situated on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Mayan Rivera's lush lagoons and pristine greenery, Etéreo is located in the Kanai development just 24 miles from Cancun International Airport and 6 miles from Playa del Carmen.


  • SANA, an Auberge Spa, is a wellness sanctuary set above a lush forest with each of the seven private terrace treatment rooms overlooking an endless sea of green. The spa features salt rooms, sound showers, an herbal steam room, a Mayan clayroom, and a cenote-inspired pool. Spa treatments will take their inspiration from local healing traditions and the Mayan reverence for the celestial.


  • Each of the 75 guesthouses at Etéreo have expansive ocean or forest views and floor-to-ceiling windows opening to large terraces, exemplifying extraordinary indoor-outdoor living. Many also have private plunge pools and additional rooftop terraces.
