Parrots squawk in treetops beneath glass-enclosed suites at dawn at Encanto, an architectural stunner in Acapulco's sophisticated Diamante neighborhood. Architect Miguel Angel Aragones is known for his creative lighting schemes, and every night the mod-minimalist hotel is bathed in swirling purple and aqua. But the 44-suite hotel is at its best in natural light, when shafts of sunshine stream through portholes and slits onto white angled walls. Guests get to play with the room color as well, from bedside controls that also close blackout shades and cue up music and movies from the TV perched on a platform between the bed and sky view. Design beats out function, in some ways; it can be hard to feel cozy and comfy in the high-style setting. Out by the pool, beautiful guests lounge beneath sail-like awnings while sipping iced chai with tequila and nibbling celeb-chef Monica Patiño's ceviches. Come evening, there's a sexy lounge scene, so you can experience Acapulco's legendary glamour without ever hailing a taxi.—Maribeth Mellin
