We could sing the praises of all-inclusives, but you might already know how great they are. Similarly, we could rave about LGBT-friendly Playa Del Carmen, but we’ve already done that too. What’s left? To tell you the romantic possibilities when they join forces! Here’s a roundup of three fabulous adults-only, all-inclusive resorts in Riviera Maya (home to Playa del Carmen), the perfect recipe for a romantic celebration or getaway.
3. Royal Hideaway Playacar: A short walk from the popular 5th avenue shops in Playa del Carmen, the resort is also known for its luxurious beach beds and cabanas—perfect for snuggling oceanside. In addition to their fabulous stretch of sand, Royal Hideaway Playacar has plenty of nightly entertainment options and unique dining experiences. Be sure to try the Chef’s Table Experience, a gourmet tasting of 12+ courses with impeccable wine selections in an intimate, romantic room.
2. Blue Diamond Riviera Maya: This luxurious enclave boasts generously-sized guest suits that almost appear to have been dropped perfectly onto the 36 acre property, nestled in complete harmony with the lush, unspoiled rainforest and Caribbean beaches. With one of Riviera Maya’s top spas onsite, ritual-based healing is a tried-and-true practice here. Leap into one of the startlingly blue and pure cenotes or work your way through the Spa’s water circuit, a winding maze of experience showers, hydrotherapy tubs, and temazcals. The property also boasts custom art patios to keep up the rejuvenation outside of the spa.
1. Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla: Surrounded by protected mangroves and set against a spectacular bay, the Paradisus Playa del Carmen is close to many of the archeological treasures of Tulum and Chichén Itzá and has a relaxed, elegant ambiance. It’s eleven gourmet restaurants will speak to foodies, with dozens of culinary adventures to submerse yourself in. The resort also offers immersion-based programs like tango dancing and sushi-making classes to help you unwind and spend time together.
With its bohemian, welcoming attitude, the Riviera Maya corridor on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is a great option for couples looking for a funky and romantic retreat.
