Situated on 50 acres of jungle, this sprawling estate—once the home of an Italian duchess—has been converted into one of the most luxurious hotels in Riviera Maya. Nestled within the gardens are two-story cottages, each with private swimming pools, enormous living rooms, wooden pavilions with outdoor dining areas, and high-tech entertainment rooms (think plasma TVs with surround sound). Villa rooms are tastefully decorated with hardwood furnishings and white linens
and include a surplus of amenities that include iPod minis (preloaded with music), a sub-zero bottle refrigerator (stocked), and a satellite cable LCD TV (with a DVD library). Not a single detail has been overlooked, so expect everything from double rain-shower heads and Moulton Brown bath products to butler service and 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets.
