Luxury Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an Don Pablo Collection
At this new property in the Mexican Caribbean’s Mayan Jungle, chefs at Makio serve upscale Japanese cuisine, reinventing antiquated “Asian fusion” for newer flavors and presentation. Alux Restaurant combines contemporary design with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the scenic grounds.

There are numerous gastronomic offerings at this adults-only all-inclusive resort. These include Bash, which is known as the heartbeat of Temptation and offers guests multiple entertainment outlets, from live music to resident DJs and other nightly programming. At SHE: Temptation, chefs also showcase molecular gastronomy-inspired dishes with an aphrodisiac bent for an adults-only crowd.
