MEXICO CITY, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Aqua Cancun is celebrating its first place ranking in Travel + Leisure's 2012 World's Best Awards as the best resort in Mexico. This luxury adult-only oasis on the white-sand shoreline of Cancun ascended from unranked in 2011, to debut as number one in 2012.  This esteemed improvement can be attributed to the resort's astute attention to detail, innovative multi-sensory concept, and unparalleled all-inclusive offerings for adults including a renowned spa and all-new dining options.


The 335-room and 36-suite Live Aqua Cancun has revolutionized the luxury getaway experience with a unique focus on the inclusion and treatment of all five senses.  With fresh design elements such as sensuous in-room aromatherapy menus, savory international cuisine, world-fusion spa, in-house DJ and panoramic views of the Caribbean, a visit to Live Aqua Cancun is designed to nurture the guests' overall well-being. 

"We are honored and humbled by this recognition from Travel + Leisure readers," said Alfredo Santamaría, general manager of Live Aqua Cancun.  "To be recognized as the best resort not only in our destination, but in all of Mexico is a privilege we strive for every day."

Votes for Travel + Leisure's 17th annual World's Best Awards are tallied by a consumer questionnaire.  The overall scores for each candidate focused on five specific resort characteristics: room/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value.

Contributing to Live Aqua Cancun's best-in-Mexico recognition, the resort recently enhanced the dining offerings with the debut of four new gourmet-dining options led by celebrity chef Eric De Maeyer.  Existing restaurants introduced new menus complete with delectable entrée assortments and premier drink selections.  To align with the resort's emphasis on the five senses, new dining options are designed to invigorate the palate and spark the senses.

In addition to Travel + Leisure's 2012 World's Best Awards, Live Aqua Cancun has also been named one of the best hotels worldwide in the Expedia World's Best-Reviewed Hotels 2012.  As one of only three hotels in Cancun to earn a spot on this list, Live Aqua Cancun continues to set the bar for all-inclusive resorts.
