The term ’Sexy-chic’ defines everything about this oceanfront hotel. Winning 3 awards for being the one of the trendiest and top luxury hotels in Mexico, plus Tripadvisor’s Travellers Choice Award for top hotels in Mexico, El Taj claims a position that no other hotel in Playa del Carmen has received. Recognized for the hotel’s achievements, the super-hip environment and friendliness of the staff, the hotel is in high demand. It would be advisable to book your stay far away in advance while keeping your goal on getting the Penthouse for your wedding.
The essence of Bali and a warm welcoming spirit is the core of El Taj, which shares 57 rooms, up to 4 bedrooms in size, with two separate sister properties, one being ‘Beachside’ right across the street. All rooms are available for short-term of longer stays for those who really wish to immerse themselves in the local culture. The beautiful building design of El Taj mimics the ocean waves of Mexico’s turquoise waters and helps filter any outside noise from the town. A custom-made Jacuzzi with a glass wall spills water cascading into the lower level pool- Just beyond this pool is the El Taj private beach club and the Indigo café which is open for breakfast and lunch. This café is also used for catering your beach wedding/reception but you are welcome to bring in your own vendors without penalty fees. One suggestion: get a disco dance floor. www.eltaj.com
