There is no time more important than the alone time craved by newlyweds following the mayhem of their wedding. Those looking for a luxurious and romantic resort should look no further than Rosewood Mayakoba. Riviera Maya’s 130 stand-up suites include breathtaking, unobstructed views complete with private plunge pools, rooftop sun decks and individual boat docks. Rosewood Mayakoba provides the most ideal location, leaving you forgetting anyone else exists. For those special couples that crave a Destination I Do, there is no better place to exchange vows. With the most elegant of settings, Rosewood Mayakoba provides 13 beautiful venues, bespoke services and the most exquisite cuisine. Ceremonies take place along the seemingly untouched white beaches of the Caribbean coast or the Lagoon Lawn overlooking the lush mangroves.
Those brides and grooms who choose to wed at Rosewood Mayakoba are treated to a complementary 30-minute ritual performed by a traditional Mayan Shaman Priest at the Spa Palapa, decorated with candles and perfumed with incense. The Bridal Trousseau is Rosewood Mayakoba’s gift to its newlyweds. Welcoming the couple into a blessed life together, the Mayan Shaman Priest bestows seven wishes for the future that is represented with a coin. Referred to as “arras,” the seven handcrafted tokens are presented to the bride and groom in a custom box engraved with the wedding date and monogram. Also included in the Bridal Trousseau are monogramed robes for him and her, as well as a printed invitation to celebrate the first wedding anniversary with three complimentary nights at the resort.
Going above and beyond to create an unforgettable stay is what you can expect from the attentive staff of Rosewood Mayakoba. Creating a truly unforgettable stay is what the staff strives for. Arranging events such as romantic dinners beachside, on the private lawn, or even an off property cultural experience is the duty of your personal butler. A personal butler, whom caters to every want and need of the honeymooner, accompanies each suite. Butlers are reachable via text message or email – perfect for those newlyweds who want to spend their honeymoon in seclusion!
The bride and groom looking for a timeless and unforgettable beginning to celebrate the start of their marriage can indulge in the Rosewood Mayakoba Honeymoon Hideaway. This new package includes champagne upon arrival and a romantic dinner at one of the resort’s incredible private lawns. Also included in the package is the “Escape Together: Sun & moon Journey.” This includes a boat ride from Sense, A Rosewood Spa (which is on a private island), a full-body Mayan cacao scrub and wrap, a massage and a culinary treat.
Rates at Rosewood Mayacoba begin at $1,295 for four nights and is subject to availability. Visit rosewoodhotels.com for more information.
