Viceroy Riviera Maya Resort

Viceroy Riviera Maya hotel is by far one of my favorite resorts in Mexico. It is the only adults-only resort offering exceptional privacy and combination of luxurious sea and jungle experience.

The property is located south of Cancun between Puerto Morelos and Sin Ka´an Biosphere Reserve  (south of Tulum). It is one of the several luxurious properties of the Riviera Maya but one that offers true hideaway experience.

From the moment I have arrived to the resort I was pleasantly surprised with the incredibly unique welcome offered to all the guests. Moments after you check-in, you receive Mayan Blessing, performed by a Mayan shaman, this ritual is supposed to release you from all worries and allow you to enter to tranquility and serenity of the resort. What an amazing way of starting your vacation, almost immediately I was transformed to zen state of mind.

Once I have arrived to my villa I felt even more relaxed.  All 41 spacious villas of Viceroy Riviera Maya are surrounded by the lush tropical trees. Each villa comes with stunning private patios with plunge pools, outdoor showers amazing bathrooms  and my favorite feature high-ceiling thatched-palapa roof that resonates with the jungle environment. The décor of the villas is absolutely stunning, hand-carved stone dining tables, chaise lounges and hammocks on the terrace, divine bedding with soft pillows and 500-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets create simply luxurious ambiance and truly fantastic experience. Not to mention all the amenities that come with your suite: from fresh soaps offered by your butler: choose chocolate, coconut, rose, rosemary or any other scent you like for your bathing pleasures to high-tech entertainment centers with DVD/CD players, flat HD TV and more.

I almost did not feel like leaving the suite. But how can you not, when nature offers you its fabulous amenities such as turquoise clear waters and white sand beach just few steps away from your suite. Resort has beautifully appointed pool and restaurants with stunning Ocean vistas.

Dining on-site is simply exquisite. La Marea Restaurant of the Viceroy Riviera Maya offer innovative combination of traditional Maya cuisine with the International twist. For example risotto is prepared with traditional Yucatan cheese called Queso de Bola. Black paella is served with Epazote leaf which gives Mexican spin to this classical Spanish dish. Fresh seafood and ingredients are the base for La Marea menu. For lunch Coral Grill offers more relax selection of fresh catch of the day, variety of grilled meats and tacos – fresh and tasty. Large fire pit set in front of the restaurant is a perfect place to start of your night with the signature cocktail under the starry skies, a very romantic and spot but also a chance to meet other guests and make new friendships.

To relax your body and soul try Viceroy Spa, which incorporates Maya healing techniques and traditions that infuse every aspect of your experience  true me, your body will thank you.

To me Viceroy boutique atmosphere is ideal for a romantic getaway, a perfect place to relax and indulge with excellent service and tranquility. I loved my sunset horseback riding and swimming in the aquamarine Caribbean ocean, fabulist food and overall five star experience.

I also enjoyed  the fact the resort is close to ancient Maya ruin and landmarks such as :Tulum, Xel-ha, Xcaret, Chichen -Itza. Hotel concierge can arrange for you car rental or organized excursion to visit this amazing sites.I have had most amazing time and experience and I can’t wait to return, I hope you will be able to visits and enjoy it as much as I did.
