Gay-exclusive hotel opens on Riviera Maya

A luxury hotel catering exclusively to gay men is opening next month on the Mexico’s Riviera Maya near the Tulum archaeological zone.

The Adonis Tulum Gay Men Resort & Spa features 94 oceanfront suites along with a menu of spa services and recreational activities, such as snorkeling and scuba diving. Prices for two are in the $846 – $900 range per night, although special packages include three nights for $1,069 per person.

“The hotel is uniquely for men, says general director Patrick Lurenz. “That is to say, only homosexual couples are accepted, it’s not for women, although among our personnel we have heterosexual men and women and all have received specialized training to avoid having our guests feel uncomfortable or discriminated against.”

Lurenz said that the hotel is the first establishment of its kind in the state of Quintana Roo.

The property is on this year’s Expedia Insiders’ Select list, an annual selection of the top hotels based largely on traveler opinions as well as value and Expedia expert input.

The property also is affiliated with the International Gay & Lesbian Trave Association.
