  • Of all our far-flung romantic getaways you can find from North America, Banyan Tree Cabo Marques isn't the furthest from home but you wouldn't know it from the outside. Its architecture of Asian-inspired bungalows is reminiscent of Banyan Tree's acclaimed 5-star hideaways in places like Thailand's Samui and Phuket, this different breed of Acapulco resort located along the Punta Diamante on a rocky hilltop above the sea. Its fortressed entrance is hidden amongst a native palm forest and mangroves along a single private road that dead-ends at a stone-encrusted entryway under pitched Asian roofline and visual hello from an open-air panorama of the Pacific through the lobby. With heavy stone tiles and sleek wood floors, the lobby oozes of eastern minimalism along a series of interconnected stilted and cantilevered lounges hovering over the jagged hillside below.

  • The Room:

    Far removed form the high-rise metropolis of Acapulco, this spa-minded oasis offers more of a removed tropical feel than its hotel competition in the area or sibling property Banyan Tree Mayakoba. Its rooms are the most luxurious in the region, defined by open walls of glass and infinity decks with plunge pools staggered vertically along the property to give couples the feeling of endless nature and seclusion. Bathrooms are the best you will find in Acapulco, including those in the numerous mansions that surround Punta Diamante, with sunken baths and homemade toiletries than bring a bit of Thai luxury to the Pacific coast of Mexico.
