Live Aqua Boutique Resort – Playa Del Carmen’s Greatest Addition!

Live Aqua Boutique Resort – Playa Del Carmen’s Greatest Addition!

Meet Playa del Carmen’s newest addition, Live Aqua Boutique Resort! This resort just opened up at the corner of Playa’s Fifth Avenue and Paradise in November of 2016 and we have seen tremendous reviews from couples all over the globe! Since you can always count on our Romance Experts to keep up with the latest vacation destinations and trends, I was able to spend a week seeing and exploring the hustle and bustle of Playa Del Carmen all in the comfort of the new, ultra chic hotel, Live Aqua Boutique Resort.

The Location

The Live Aqua Boutique Resort is located in Mexico’s Playa del Carmen right on the famous Fifth Avenue which features shopping districts, authentic cuisine and endless activities around every corner. You’re 3 blocks away from Playa’s main beach and right in the heart of all the action of this lively town.

Travel Tip: Ask the front desk to make your reservations at restaurants outside of the resort! They have an excellent relationship with some of the best restaurants and beach clubs, which allows you to get discounts on drinks or even your entire bill!

The Pool

No beach? No Problem! While the Live Aqua Boutique Resort is not a beach front resort, they do offer one of the best roof-top pools we’ve ever seen! Just head over to the elevator and press floor level 4, and in seconds you’ll be gazing over the metropolitan city of Playa del Carmen and have an excellent view of the Caribbean!

Travel Tip: If you want to spend a afternoon or two on a beach, ask the front desk to make reservations at Mamitas Beach Club! It is only a 2 minute walk from the Live Aqua Boutique Resort and they can get you a discount which makes an umbrella and 2 beach chairs only $7.00 USD! Problem Solved!!

The Food

If you’re a foodie, you better be listening! The Live Aqua Boutique Resort gives All-Inclusive a whole new meaning with their delicious cuisine! This resort features 4 restaurants and 1 rooftop bar! My favorite was the oriental restaurant, Dai.

Dai: The flavors of the orient come alive, as their world class chefs combine flavors from China, Japan, India and Thailand.

Travel Tip: All of the appetizers look fantastic and trust me you will want to try them all! So, ask your waiter to put together a little bit of each! My favorite was the Thai Dumplings!

The Mural: Discover the fusion of traditional and contemporary cuisine at The Mural! This restaurant is on the main level, near the front desk. Everything was phenomenal! From their perfectly cut and prepared ribeye to their Veal Osso Buco which literally fell off the bone, boasting with flavor!

Sushi & Tapas: The Sushi and Tapas restaurant was on the roof, featuring poolside seating! I will not disclose the amount of time I spent just trying all of their beautifully presented Sushi and Tapas, but I can confidently say that everything on their menu was beyond excellent! My favorite sushi dish was the Texas Roll and favorite tapas dish the prosciutto with their homemade bruschetta!

The Bar: The Lat20 features one of the few rooftop bars in Playa del Carmen, with top shelf liquor! Johnny Walker… Grey Goose… Crown Royal… Bombay Sapphire, you name it, they most likely have it! They also have a menu to compliment their drinks! I loved their fresh guacamole and pico de gallo, with their homemade tortilla chips, all topped with fresh lime! It went perfectly with a Margarita!

Couples LOVE this Resort!

“The Live Aqua Boutique Resort delivered exactly what we hoped for our Romantic Escape in Playa del Carmen. All of the meals were delicious and service was prompt with a friendly and courteous staff. The rooftop offered views of the surrounding area including the ocean, island of Cozumel and the whole city of Playa del Carmen. relaxing in the infinity pool under the warm summer sun with a cold drink was nothing short of paradise. We also decided to go on a snorkeling excursion, we called LovinAway (hours before) and booked and took care of all the details. A big thank you to our Romance Expert, Cassidy Karnes and the entire LovinAway team! We can’t wait to come back soon!”
