El Taj is the proud recipient of the 2012 & 2013 TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice Award for top hotels in Mexico. It was also chosen as one of the top luxury hotels in Mexico, in addition to one of the trendiest hotels. Playa del Carmen has no other hotel that has won all these top three categories. El Taj has also received recognition from The New York Times and USA Today for its design, luxury, and excellence in service. We are not an all-inclusive Ritz-type resort, but we are considered to be the best of the area's hotels. Playa del Carmen has a lot to offer, but nothing compares to El Taj.
El Taj's luxury units have one to four bedrooms that feature huge living rooms and fully equipped kitchens with private outdoor Jacuzzis on many terraces. El Taj offers 57 spacious units in total, situated on two separate sister properties.
El Taj Oceanfront is directly in front of the ocean and El Taj Beachside is across the street. Guests get to use all of our amenities, including two incredible heated pools. One is an exotic black mosaic infinity pool on the Beachside property, while the Oceanfront's heated pool sits right on the beach in front of our trendy Indigo Beach Club. We're located in the liveliest area of city, which means the best restaurants, nightlife and shopping are within one block of El Taj.
The Beachside condos have private terraces that are surrounded by exotic plants and lily ponds, and all face the pool and cascading waterfalls. All of the penthouse units in El Taj Beachside feature ocean views from their private rooftop decks. All of the Oceanfront's units have views of the ocean (see description of each unit).
Our designers traveled the globe in search of a perfect design and selected most of materials in Indonesia, trying to recreate an environment reminiscent to Bali. Perhaps you want to stretch out on one of our original antique Balinese lounge beds? Or gaze at our lush tropical gardens with the sound and sight of water falling into a large pool covered with beautiful iridescent tiles? All the architectural details and decorative accessories have been imported from Bali, including a Buddha statue that is next to a Koi fish pond with Lilies in bloom. Even our Beach Club includes furnishings and umbrellas imported from Bali.
We offer services and amenities that are usually associated with the world's finest hotels. Playa del Carmen has numerous options for hotels with nice amenities, but El Taj is the hotel that truly stands above the rest.
