Capella Ixtapa

Mexico

At this "very private and romantic resort where the buildings cascade down a hill above the Pacific," all suites have private plunge pools and terraces—"it's like a fairy tale." The Mexican design mixes clay, stone, marble, and polished hardwoods with pastels and furnishings from artisans in the state of Guerrero. Cold beer and guacamole are complimentary, and El Capricho Spa has therapies using the local Xochitil flower. "These are the best-trained staff I've come across in a long time." Among the dining options is upscale Mexican at A Mares, where the decor includes cast-iron artwork and Talavera plates handmade in Puebla.
