Make it at Home: Blue Hawaii

Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana recently featured Blue Hawaii as the drink of the day! Our guests really enjoyed this refreshing cocktail so we thought we’d share the recipe with you so you can re-create it at home. 

Each day we feature a different drink at our resort. During your next stay, you’ll get an opportunity to taste a variety of different cocktails that our bartenders mix up. Simply check our daily Sundial to see what drink is featured each day. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this recipe for our Blue Hawaii!

Ingredients

  • 4 cup(s) ice cubes
  • 1 cup(s) pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup(s) blue curaçao (this adds the color)
  • 1/2 cup(s) rum
  • 1/2 cup(s) cream of coconut
  • 2 oz. triple sec

Directions

Combine ice and all ingredients into a blender and blend until mixture is smooth. Pour into 4 glasses. Garnish with pineapple slices and enjoy! If you wish to make this drink on the rocks instead of blended then mix in large martini shaker and then serve over ice.

Babymoon at Secrets Silversands

By Guest Blogger Tara Berger

By tomorrow this time, I will be sitting poolside at Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun with a virgin strawberry daiquiri in hand. At 6.5 months pregnant, I couldn’t be more excited to travel to the beautiful Riviera Maya for 3 nights and 4 days of pure relaxation with my husband.

My husband and I became the proud parents of a little boy 17 months ago. It was love at first sight and our lives were forever changed. Now in just 3 more months, we will be welcoming our second son into our family. With 2 boys under 2, it’s safe to say that our lives are going to get just a little bit crazy!

While planning for the arrival for our second son, we decided to make it a priority to take time out as a couple to relax, reconnect and rekindle that romance that can sometimes get lost in the shuffle of becoming a parent. A “babymoon” seemed like the perfect solution.

Without hesitation, I immediately knew I wanted to go to Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun for our “babymoon”. Here’s the criteria we used to make our decision:

  • Convenient destination. We wanted a destination that was quick and easy to get to from Philadelphia. PHL -> CUN = 3 hours. Perfect.
  • Adults-only resort. An adults-only resort was a must since this vacation will likely be our last one without the kiddos for a loooooong time! Check.
  • Pool vs. beach. Though we love to see the ocean and walk along the sand, we wanted a resort with an over the top pool. If you’ve never seen the pools at Secrets Silversands, they are BEYOND gorgeous.
  • Really good food. At 6.5 months pregnant, food is one of the few things I actually get to indulge in, so I wanted to make sure that the meals on our vacation would be extra delicious. With 8 a la carte restaurants and 24/7 room service included as part of the Unlimited-Luxury® privileges, not to mention my favorite dessert of all time, the Aztec Soufflé, Secrets Silversands was a no brainer for me once again.
  • World-class spa. What better way to relax on our “babymoon” than indulging in a spa treatment? The Secrets Spa by Pevonia stretches 12,000 sq. feet with 17 treatment rooms and a complete hydrotherapy circuit. The spa menu includes any and every spa treatment we could possibly desire.

Not only did Secret Silversands meet all of our criteria for our “babymoon”, but I just love the modern feel and clean lines of the resort, especially as it contrasts with the warm and friendly staff members who take such good care of each and every one of their guests.

I’m looking forward to indulging in the amenities offered in the Babymoon Package at Secrets Silversands, which includes a manicure for mom, breakfast in bed, special turndown service with rose petals and chocolate covered strawberries and more.  You can bet that I will also be hitting up the spa for a prenatal massage and will be taking advantage of the 24/7 room service for late-night cravings.

Stayed tuned for details after our trip. I’ll be sure to report back on our “babymoon” experience at Secrets Silversands!

Where you'll find me at Secrets Silversands for the next 4 days...
