For all the glam of a glitterati getaway without blue-bleeding your wallet dry, look no further than today's elite escape.

Join high society at low tide at ME Cancun for a four-night stay in an ocean view room ($1,349). While you and a plus one could jet set to the Mexican coast alone, two kids under age 5 are welcome at no charge, and children 7 to 12 are an additional $109 per night.

After your breezy jaunt through the terminal, round-trip transportation is provided to this modern resort. Pull your carry-on into your sunlit hideaway, where you'll feel at the height of haute monde. Rooms are decorated with rich chocolate tones and the works of internationally recognized, Mexican-born artist Yuri Zatarain.

Make a cup of coffee as you play music from an MP3 docking station and slip into a bathing suit after washing away the jetlag in your rainfall-esque shower with Aveda bath products. Rooms also include wi-fi, bathrobes, blackout drapes and a 32-inch flat-screen TV, satisfying those with even the most aristocratic tastes.

Walk to YHI Spa for your complimentary hand, foot, or scalp mini-massage. Then, join the other fashionable folk at the adults-only Beach Club @ ME Cancun to swim in the infinity pool or to recline on a daybed overlooking the Caribbean. Order included drinks and food throughout the afternoon, and later, enjoy a romantic barefoot dinner on the house.

Snorkel with the smart set when you treat yourself to an underwater tour of Cozumel with Scuba Cancun. Then, return to the resort for your courtesy shopping trip to Playa del Carmen, and then snuggle up with your room's surround sound for an included movie night: popcorn, soda and snacks come with a pay-per-view film of your choice.

Toned and tanned, finish your getaway with an hour-long photo shoot conducted by the resort. You'll keep the best picture as a gift, preserving the memories of a trip that proves the crème de la crème of escapes isn't reserved for just for the upper crust.
