Viceroy Resort Summary
Ideal for: intimate, tranquil luxury Wedding experience!
I was invited to view the Viceroy Riviera Maya, and my first impression was that this place was a secret jungle hideaway. The Viceroy was a bit tricky to find but well worth the effort. It feels more like a retreat than a hotel.
The rooms are like little villas that have been placed down from the heavens. You can choose from a beachfront, ocean view or jungle setting and the Presidential Villa is perfect for the happy wedding couple. All 41 villas feature a private patio and plunge pool, outdoor shower and high ceiling thatched-palapa roof echoing the jungle environment.
I was blessed by the resort’s Shaman who performed a smoke ritual around me and then off to the award-winning spa for some Mayan healing techniques. I then finished off my experience at their traditional temazcal sweat lodge!
The restaurants, La Marea (refined Mexican cuisine) and Coral (Mexican-Mediterranean) are at the seaside and served up some delicious meals. The Bar and Lounge have an excellent overview of the private pier and beach and is a comfortable place to relax and lose all your worries of home with their signature drinks. This resort is somewhat expensive to host a wedding, but it’s uniqueness and charm supersede the cost. If you are looking for a resort that will keep your wedding party close-knit, then the Viceroy Riviera Maya is the location for your destination wedding.
