These 5 all-inclusive resorts fire up the heat for a sultry couples-only getaway. 

1. A Sporty Holiday
Whispering in one’s ear over a champagne toast is sweet and all, but for couples that want to rev it up, recommend the adults-only, 420-room Luxury Bahia Principe Sian Ka’an in the Riviera Maya. This sports-centric resort offers a championship course, a soccer field and three tennis courts, not to mention paddle surfing, kayaking, catamarans for hire, and snorkeling. There’s also the option for an in-pool diving lesson, or if clients prefer to just hang by the pool there are four to choose from, although the active-driven might want to plunge into some water polo activities. There are also nine restaurants, and bars, as well as a beach club. When the sun sets, couples can make their way to Hacienda Doña Isabel, an onsite shopping village that includes live shows and karaoke nights. Rates start at $132 pp per night. bahia-principe.com/en

2. Privacy Please
Family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Cancun has a little gem—the adults-only Turquoize. Yes, you read right—the resort that accepts all ages, keeps grown-up intimacy top of mind, as well, with this boutique, all-access resort within a resort. The Turquoize experience includes private transfers to and from Cancun International Airport, private check-in, and a butler for when your clients want chocolate-covered strawberries at midnight, a rose petal bath or an en-suite dinner. The 700-sq.-ft. accommodations get intimate with the outdoors by inviting them in via floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony that features a jet tub that’s a perfect fit for “just the two of us.” Twosomes can also access the adults-only rooftop infinity pool, and they’ll get priority seating at the onsite steakhouse, Tradewinds. There’s even a private elevator with exclusive direct access to Zen Spa; and if couples want to take advantage of more adults-only amenities, they have full privileges at nearby adults-only Hyatt Zilara Cancun. Rates start at $263 pp per night. playaresorts.com

For couples who’d rather dance the night away than stare lovey-dovey at each other over a private en-suite dinner, the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is offering a Rock Getaway featuring rock concerts by legends such as Santana, Don Henley, Pat Benatar and REO Speedwagon. Guests will have access to poolside concerts, impromptu jam sessions and late night after parties.
