Etéreo, Auberge Resorts Collection has opened on nine oceanfront acres within the landmark Kanai destination. Located on the Yucatan coastline, the resort is just 40 minutes by car south of Cancun International Airport and offers white-sand beaches and lush surroundings.
Almost every area of the resort offers ocean views. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed into the gallery-esque reception area, an artfully curated collection of gathering spaces, and Sana, the resort’s spa and wellness center.
The resort has 75 ocean-front guest accommodations, ranging from 875-square-foot Studios to 3,925-square-foot, three-bedroom Penthouse Suites. Each unit offers an expansive private terrace, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, private plunge pools, hot tubs and sky-deck roof terraces.
The beach at Etéreo has the region’s largest reef just 250 feet offshore. Just steps from the beach are the resort’s five restaurants, two swimming pools, events lawn and kids’ club.
Wrapped around the trunk of an age-old tree, Mayan-inspired signature restaurant Itzam offers ocean views from its open-air restaurant, lounge terrace and private dining room, Pixán. Set beside the main swimming pool, Che Che serves up Nikkei-esque Japanese-Peruvian bites and hosts international DJs after dark in its atmospheric bar area. Alberca has a casual menu of tacos, raw bowls, ceviches and Che Che favorites; and right on the beach, El Changarro offers feet-in-the-sand, catch-of-the-day dining. For guests’ grab-and-go gastronomic needs from sunrise to sunset, El Carrito’s cart-to-hand morning coffees and pastries transform into afternoon street snacks and evening cocktails.
Guest experiences at Sana include detoxifying Mayan clay wraps, crystal healing, sound baths, a full-day exploration of the senses, full moon ceremonies and custom scent blending. The first spa worldwide to offer organic, wild-crafted Circe Brujeria de Origen skincare products and Kypris facials, Sana’s healing rituals are offered alongside an extensive menu of personalized bodywork treatments, curated retreats with visiting practitioners, and daily movement and mindfulness classes including aerial yoga, chromatic breathing and reiki circles.
Guests can explore the Yucatan’s natural wonders and historic Mayan ruins, swim in the crystal waters of cenotes, go snorkeling, hiking, biking, horse-riding, and dive into Mexico’s epicurean scene with chocolate, mezcal and wine tastings. Exclusive Etéreo experiences include painting wooden alebrije spirit animals; taking part in a Mayan fireside blessing or Equinox Ceremony; tuning in to the sounds of the Yucatan with a local musician; learning local card games and handicrafts; uncovering lesser-known Mexican flavors with home-cooked Nicho de Abuela pop-up dinners; and planting saplings in the mangrove forest.
Interactive experiences are also offered through the resort’s Carolina K Boutique, which features leisure- and swimwear collections, all-natural apothecary products, home-ware and lifestyle accessories by Carolina Kleinman and other Latin American designers.
