We love hearing (and seeing) how our everyday guests enjoy their time at Secrets Resorts & Spas. Recently, the editor and host of HighClassNoCash — “a popular ‘hipster chic’ lifestyle guide for 20-somethings looking to live well on a budget” — ventured to Secrets The Vine Cancun. His Unlimited-Luxury® getaway was documented and featured on HighClassNoCash with pictures, experiences and video. Watch the video below and then head over to the site to see the full feature. Enjoy!
Are you planning your summer vacation to one of Secrets Resorts & Spas? As with any Caribbean destination, there are a few specifics to note as you pack your bags for Unlimited-Luxury® at Secrets! We have a list of necessities for an enjoyable vacation – so you won’t be caught missing anything or packing up your entire house to bring on vacation.
Bathing Suits: Our resorts offer some of the best-known beaches in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. It’s best to pack at least two bathing suits. This way, each suit has time to dry each day and you won’t get stuck putting on a wet bathing suit–which is never comfortable.
Beach Cover-Up: A cover-up for arriving and leaving from the beach or pool is a necessity at Secrets Resorts & Spas. You won’t have to walk through air-conditioned lobbies or restaurants in a bathing suit. For men, a t-shirt is an easy cover-up and for women, a light sundress is easy to throw on, and it’s stylish!
Light pajamas: A comfortable outfit at night is good for lounging in your room and to answer your door for room service.
Daytime clothes: Bring one casual outfit for each day of your vacation, plus one extra just in case. Shorts, t-shirts, sundresses and tank tops will be perfect for most days during your vacation.
Nighttime clothes: Nights can get surprisingly cool some days, so pack a long sleeved shirt, a light sweater and pair of long pants. Make sure you check with your specific resort for dress codes—some restaurants have specific casual dress codes. Women can often wear a cocktail dress and men can wear linen pants and a polo shirt.
Shoes: Bring a couple pairs of sandals, including one pair you can comfortably walk in around the resort. If you plan on scheduling a day excursion, make sure you bring along a nice pair of walking shoes or sneakers.
Personal Items: In addition to any medications you need, you should bring a tube of sunscreen with at least 30 SPF. The Caribbean sun can be surprisingly strong. A travel umbrella can also be helpful, in case of passing rain. And last but not least, don’t forget your passport!
Secrets Resorts & Spas are focused on giving each guest a luxurious opportunity to make life’s most romantic memories. You can get pampered at our world-class Secrets Spas by Pevonia, relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world with a top-shelf cocktail in hand, and indulge in the gourmet à la carte restaurants that are sure to impress.
Your time at Secrets is sure to leave an indelible mark on your memory, but we like it when guests take tokens of this romance home- which is why we wanted to share this cute cork memory board with you.
To start making your own romantic memory board, enjoy a fine bottle of wine with a dinner here at Secrets, and keep the cork. At home, secure the cork in a frame and write the event below the cork. Over time, you’ll have an elegant timeline of your life’s most memorable, romantic events.
We like to say the tan lines fade, but vacation experience will be there to stay.
Talk about a celebrity meeting! Ken M. and Teresa F., the lucky winners of a 3-night stay for two plus a meet and greet with tennis superstar Rafael Nadal at Secrets Aura Cozumel, were with us last weekend for their trip! Throughout the weekend, Ken and Teresa took advantage of the numerous activities at the resort, but they had a very special Monday night. They joined Nadal at Oceana Restaurant, where they met the gracious tennis player, chatted with him and had their pictures taken. What an amazing experience!
