Take your taste buds on at adventure at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun’s Fusion restaurant.

Our Executive Chef believes cooking is an art which can be constantly improved. Molecular cuisine is a variant of food science that uses new tools, ingredients and preparation methods. In our hotel we already have a wide variety of flavors and are always innovating to delight our guests. We thought it was time to offer them a truly innovative culinary experience.

Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun’s Fusion restaurant serves up incredible and often unexpected flavor combinations.

The experience at Fusion begins with the welcome cocktail, a drink also prepared with modern techniques, and continues with eight courses served as petit portions that include seafood, vegetables, fish, meat, soup, Carpaccio, foie gras intermezzo, desserts and so much more. Guests will encounter foods and textures they’ve never imagined, such as tomato ice cream, which may sound peculiar but is truly a delight! Our chef says his favorite dish would have to be the the Chilean Sea Bass with artichoke cream and foie gras reduction.

John learns the art of pairing authentic Mexican food and wine at Secrets The Vine Cancun

We at Secrets The Vine thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce him to the exciting world of authentic Mexican food and wine, so we decided to show him some recipes!

Beginning the sopes at Secrets The Vine Cancun

We worked with John to create some traditional Mexican sopes and mole. John even tried making his own sope. The food was paired with Espacio en Blanco, a fine Chardonnary from Hacienda La Lomita.

The secret to great traditional Mexican cooking is always starting with fresh ingredients at Secrets The Vine Cancun!

As the delicious  scent of fresh prepared mole filled the kitchen, Secrets The Vine chefs completed the final steps and it was ready for enchiladas, which were paired with Mogor Badan, a great Cabernet–Merlot wine from Valle de Guadalupe.

Spotlight on Eco-friendly Practices at Secrets Marquis

At Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, we are committed to a variety of environmentally-friendly practices to support and promote sustainable tourism efforts and social responsibility. We are lucky to be located in a place of incredible natural beauty and are proud to do our part to preserve both the land and sea environments around us for future generations and the creatures that call Los Cabos home. Below are some of the ways we work to promote sustainable practices at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos.

Natural beauty abound at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, and we think that's something well worth protecting!

Natural beauty abounds at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos, and we think that’s something well worth protecting!

  • Rainforest Alliance Verified™
    Secrets Marquis Los Cabos earned this designation for its commitment to reducing its environmental impact within the resort and the surrounding community. This mark is awarded to tourism businesses that adopt best management practices and meet specific criteria developed and/or endorsed by the Rainforest Alliance.
  • Water Desalting Plant
    The Water Desalting Plant at Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is a vital initiative at the resort. This plant pumps in ocean water and sends it through a process to remove the salt from the water. Upon completion of this process, the clean, filtered water is used as the main water supply for the resort. In turn, Secrets Marquis is able to refrain from using the local water supply and preserve water.
  • Ecological Soap
    This environmentally friendly practice allows the resort to reduce its use of chemicals by providing guests with all-natural soap, made from cactus, right in the resort’s laundry room.
  • Composting
    Compost is made on site from the uneaten and unused vegetables and organic matter that is left over from the kitchen. The compost is then used as fertilizer in the resort’s gardens. The use of compost removes chemical fertilizers from the resort, providing the vegetation with all natural fertilizers.
  • Turtle Protection and Release Program
    Each year between the months of May and August, Secrets Marquis Los Cabos is dedicated to protecting the turtles that nest their eggs on the resort’s beachfront. Once the turtles hatch, resort guests are invited to participate in the turtle release. At this time, staff and guests protect and guide the newly-hatched turtles back to their natural ocean habitat.
