I Want to Go To There: Cuixmala

I’ve officially reached my breaking point with winter. I really need some sun and moderate temps STAT- if I see one more snowflake I might turn homicidal.  So I need to take a minute today to dream- of sand, and sun and quiet and the gorgeous, dream-like resort Cuixmala in Mexico. Just look at this beach- it looks like a little bit of a very private paradise…

The stark white interiors of this eco-friendly luxury resort are offset by bold color fabrics and greenery. I just love it.

And a special shout out to Andrew today on his birthday! Thanks for being the best husband ever! XOXO


  1. This was just the dose of happy I needed this morning. I am right there with you. I can’t stop thinking of that sliver of beach. What a gorgeous resort. Reminds me of Mexico meets Morocco.

  2. Preach. When those flakes started yesterday I seriously lost my sh*t. Thanks for adding some glimmer of hope and sunshine to us New England suckers. Awesome find.

  3. In Seattle, we’ve been getting some lovely spring weather but Sunday it poured down rain all day long. So I’m dreaming of sunshine and hot sandy beaches …
    Best wishes to Andrew on his birthday.

  4. I live in South Florida but I empathize about the weather. I think we should start a Kick Starter for a group trip…LOL

  5. Julia Engel from Gal Meets Glam is there now and the pictures look AMAZING!!! I’ve been researching it too!

  6. I love the mix of the colorful fabrics/furniture with the stark white stucco walls. It all feels really fresh. Inspired by the interiors and dying to go here!!

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Come to Los Angeles and bring some of that cold weather with you! I rarely long for cold weather but it was 90’+ here today and that’s waaay too hot for March. I live at the beach and it pretty much never gets this hot here even during summer. Of course, maybe I’m grumpy because I took my kids to Disneyland today and it was ridiculously hot and crowded.

  8. So I had never heard of Cuixmala before, and in the last two days I’ve read two posts about it! {Girl Meets Glam} It is now officially on my list of places to go. The pictures are amazing!

    And maybe it is my love of all things Alice in Wonderland, but the checkerboard pool is so fun!
