Acapulco’s Brilliant Uber-Modern Hotel Encanto

Overlooking the golden sands of Mexico’s Pacific coastline, Acapulco’s uber-modern  Hotel Encanto, offers guests a luxury getaway like no other. Built in 2010, by Miguel Angel Aragonés architects, the resort takes advantage of its luscious natural surroundings through a free flowing design which incorporates lengths of glass walls that bring the  panoramic vistas of beach, ocean and a nature preserve  indoors. With just 44 guest rooms, 20 with private pools and 24 with private terraces, the resort maintains an intimate, exclusive feel. Ambient light highlighted by a spectrum of brilliant color  plays up the architecture and ambiance of the hotel at every turn, day and night.
