Book your clients on a memorable honeymoon and there’s a good chance you’ll be booking milestone celebrations for that same couple for a lifetime. These five resorts provide just the perfect setting for newlyweds to remember you by.
On Mexico’s Caribbean coast there’s a Romance Bungalow at the TRS Yucatan Hotel that is calling your clients’ names. It features a large terrace overlooking the lake complete with a hammock, personal kayak and outdoor shower. Honeymooners can opt for a personal butler who can draw a bubble bath, customize their minibar, or arrange a private yoga lesson for two on the beach. Blissful moment? Moonlight massage for the couple complete with Champagne. palladiumhotelgroup.com
At The Explorean Kohunlich, located in Chetumal and a La Coleccion property, active honeymooners can go wild with adrenaline-packed activities such as the Kohunlich Biking Adventure that includes a 2-mile bike ride and a walk to Los Mascarones archaeological site. After that the happy couple can go for extreme rappelling on a 230-ft. wall in the middle of the jungle, or opt for some kayaking on the 7-color Bacalar lagoon. More leisurely moments can be had during the Xul Ha Kayak Expedition, when the couple journeys through the canal that connects the Xul Ha cenote with the Bacalar Lagoon.
Honeymooning couples yearn for remoteness, and the recently opened Mukan Resort delivers as the first eco-resort in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. The journey to the resort begins with a private 45-minute boat transfer through the mangrove forests of the reserve before reaching a pristine islet on the Caribbean coast, just south of the town of Tulum. It features four stand-alone beachfront bungalows and a main villa house
with five guest suites. The couple can dine on fresh daily catch at the thatched-roof gourmet restaurant, opt for a massage at the oceanfront spa bungalow, or wile away an afternoon on one of the canopy beds on the beach. Must-do: Arrange a tour for the couple through the Sian Ka’an reserve for wildlife encounters, cenote diving and fly fishing. mukan.com
Embraced by the Mayan forest just 25 minutes from Merida, the Chable Resort is a spa retreat spread across 750 acres with only 38 stand-alone pool villas and two expansive 3-bedroom presidential estates, as well as a 19th century traditional hacienda. The gem here is the spa, which is located inside a cenote and whose treatments are drawn from the ancient Mayan culture. The cuisine, too, is spa-minded, with the chef preparing organic seasonal cuisine sourced directly from the spa’s garden. The day wraps up in bliss, with a nightcap from the resort’s cellar, which showcases the world’s largest private tequila collection. chableresort.com
A Passionate Affair
At W Punta de Mita, a chic beach resort located in Riviera Nayarit, the Ignite the Passion package has the couple having daily breakfast for two at Venazu, an authentic Mexican eatery; dining on a sumptuous 7-course dinner at Mesa1, an individual table located on its own private island with oceanfront views; getting pampered at the AWAY Spa with a FUEL massage; accessing the spa for the hydrotherapy circuit; and having fun with signature in-room amenities. They’ll also get late check-out at 4 p.m. Do recommend a lunch of fresh, made-to-order ceviche at the vintage Chevy truck that’s been converted into a beachside bar. wpuntademita.com
