An adults-only resort, Villa Premiere’s inclusive atmosphere attracts both classic honeymoon couples and a demographic that appreciates the hotel’s proximity to the rainbow-flag-draped Romantic Zone neighbourhood. Premiere’s determinedly pampering set-up includes a couple’s massage on arrival, a choice of pillows and room scent, a plethora of swing chairs, hammocks and Bali beds laid out around the beachside pools, and flanking the hotel’s patch of pristine, ocean-front white sand. There’s a definite big resort vibe and facilities to match — spa, and 24-hour butler service, for example — but with just 80 rooms, Villa Premiere manages the sort of friendly, attentive service befitting a boutique hotel. Food focuses on well-balanced Mexican-international dishes. Rooms are tasteful, minimalist and modern.
