Posadas, the largest hotel operator in Mexico, has announced that Lat 20 by Live Aqua All Inclusive Adults Only has been rebranded as Live Aqua Boutique Resort Playa del Carmen, Mexico, which falls under the Live Aqua lifestyle brand, La Colección.

The rebranding follows Posadas’ introduction of La Colección, which is meant to separate their beach resorts from the remainder of their 150 other properties in Mexico.

Live Aqua Boutique Resort comprises 60 deluxe rooms and suites, and is located on Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue. Within walking distance, guests can find a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars, jewelry stores, art galleries, ice cream parlors, and handicraft and clothing stores.

The lifestyle brand is meant to be a place where adults can enjoy a trendy-yet-passionate vibe with contemporary décor, peaceful ambiance, soothing spa treatments, personalized service, and high-end gourmet experiences. Upon arrival, guests witness the Ceiba, a sacred tree to the Mayan culture commonly referred to as the tree of life and fertility, and the iconic marble statue of Tarantino de Puebla, the “architectural jewel of the hotel.”

Guests of the Live Aqua Boutique Resort can enjoy a range of dining options, including El Mural, which offers traditional cuisine, DAI, which draws inspiration from Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Thai dishes, Chef’s Kitchen, the rooftop kitchen with views of the Caribbean, as well as Sushi and Tapas, The Bar, and Coffee and Deli Bar.

Guest room accommodations are intended to be relaxing but minimalistic. Highlights include wood and steel furnishings, black onyx bathrooms, LCD TV, iPod/iPhone dock, coffeemaker, and high-speed internet access. Additionally, guests can enjoy the rooftop infinity pool and the FEEL SENSE SPA by Live Aqua.

The Live Aqua Resorts & Residence Club will be expanding nationally and internationally with a new resort in San Miguel de Allende, and the development of five properties in the United States in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston and Washington D.C.
