Check out some beautiful photos from the ceremony below, taken by Juan with Del Sol Photography.

The Chefs Serve Up a Special Lunch at Secrets Maroma Beach Resort & Spa

This week’s blog post comes to us from Romina, one of the valuable members of our team at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun! She explains how one special culinary tradition at the resort creates lasting memories for our guests.

“It’s a typical sunny Saturday at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun. People are enjoying a relaxing day at the pool, and some of them already know what’s about to happen–but nothing is the same as witnessing this experience in person.

Everyone is hungry, and it is around 1 p.m. A man spots people looking away and then shouts, “There they are!” Lo and behold, the chefs are walking towards the pool carrying delicious food for everybody. People are rushing to get their cameras to capture this special moment!

SEMRC Pool Chefs3

The all chefs gather around the pool in their white hates to have their pictures taken. It is a special occasion to see these people—those responsible for all of the delicious meals—who are otherwise always behind the scenes, unseen.

After posing for a few minutes, the show begins and the guests look on in amazement. One man even exclaims, “I can’t believe that the chef is going into the pool!” Well, you better believe it’s true! They not only go into the pool, but they even use a kayak to get to you.

SEMRC Pool Chefs14

Vacation takes a whole new meaning when guests are pampered in this unique way! Now, everyone who has read the comments online about the show knows what it actually feels like to see this experience.

As far as food goes, we have a myriad of tastes fit for everyone—these include tacos al pastor, sandwiches, sushi, pizza, hot dogs and more. After guests enjoy their meals, out come the fresh coconuts and aguas frescas (typical flavored water served in Mexico). Finally, the entire experience is crowned with dessert–ice cream, pastries, cake and fruit cocktails. Lunch wouldn’t be complete without it!

The serving dishes are empty and it’s time for the chefs to leave, knowing that people are now satisfied and extremely pleased that they witnessed such a magical event. Off they go back to their kitchens, wishing everyone another beautiful day in paradise.”

Wedding Wednesday: A Real Wedding at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun

We recently hosted an unforgettable wedding at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun.  The delightful couple, Vance and Nathalie, had a gorgeous aesthetic that blended wonderfully into the natural beauty of Maroma Beach, creating a magical scene for their wedding.  The attention to every detail went above and beyond and included outdoor chandeliers and rose petals galore – and the weather cooperated fantastically all the way into the night.

The floral arrangements for the celebration were abundant and stunningly arranged.  The only part of this wedding more gorgeous than the decoration itself was the lovely bride, Nathalie. See the rest of the wedding here. We wish the couple a lifetime of love and happiness!

Play Miniature Golf at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun

Secrets Resorts & Spas offers guests a ton of different activities –there is so much to do you’d probably need a 52-week vacation to get a chance to try them all!  Since we are always talking about all of our great water activities, like swimming, snorkeling and fishing – we should take a moment to chat about a few land options.  Our current favorite: miniature golf!

Mini-golf is always fun (especially at an adults-only resort) and here at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, we have our own 9-hole course.  The course has gorgeous facilities (included in your Unlimited-Luxury® privileges, of course!)  to practice your putt during your stay.  So, let the Secrets Maroma Beach Mini Masters begin!

Enjoy Mini Golf at Secrets Maroma Beach!

Mini Golf Tip:  The Secrets Spin Shot

Mini golf courses are full of obstacles and a spin shot could be your secret game-winning move.  For this winner’s trick, rotate the putter in a half-circle as you hit the ball.  If done correctly, the ball will spin into a new line, around anything in your way.
