The highly anticipated opening of the new Thompson Playa del Carmen has arrived. The posh property made its debut on November 16. The 92-room main hotel is situated on La Quinta Avenida, Playa’s two-mile, pedestrian-only thoroughfare with many shopping and dining options.
The property’s first two floors are designated entirely for shopping and nightlife with 40 shops, including names like Michael Kors and Swarovski, H&M and SEPHORA. However, the true highlight of this luxury location is a 30,000-square-foot rooftop deck and bar, where guests can enjoy an infinity pool, private cabanas with space for up to 20 people and underwater living rooms.
For dining, an offshoot of New York City’s Meatpacking District restaurant, Catch, heads up the hotel’s culinary scene, providing guests with fresh seafood caught the same day it reaches the table.
In addition to the main property, the more intimate 27-room Beach House is slated to open in 2016 along the shoreline of the Caribbean Sea just a few blocks away offering a Bohemian-inspired, villa-style guest experience.
