Cancun, Mexico – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
With a selection of five-star resorts that can overwhelm the most seasoned of elite travelers, Cancun is a destination that can leave visitors questioning, is the grass greener on the other side? When dealing with a holiday hotspot of this scale, finding is not so much the issue as picking. Luckily, the recent opening of Secrets Resorts and Spas’ newest luxury venture, Secrets The Vine Cancun, has made the choice that much easier.
Designed by Rockwell Group, the wine-inspired retreat is home to a majestic 495 guest rooms that come authentically adorned with Mayan and Yucatan Peninsula design influences. Traditional elements and local flavors are given luxe modern-day twists: Italian porcelain floors are polished to suggest teak wood and white glass-wrapped bathrooms are accompanied by the subtle but innovative Rockwell Group-designed APF mirrors. Private balconies offer breathtaking swallows of the Caribbean Sea and Laguna Nichupte, of course.
True to its name, the resort’s signature design celebrates the culture’s affinity with fine wine. The Vine Bar is an exquisite space dedicated to creating a completely one-of-a-kind wine-tasting experience, thanks to its 3,000-variety wine wall, sommelier-led tastings and delightful Vine Bazaar.
Pace yourself, however, for the 12,580-square-foot Secrets Spa by Pevonia is not to be missed. More than just a pretty face, the spa design is influenced by local cenote formations that arise from the collapse of limestone bedrock that expose underground water. The spa’s main lounge magically recreates the effect of these natural cenotes with a three-foot deep plunge pool permeated with backlit nooks that emulate the dancing beams of sunlight that peek through the rock formations.
All resort guests will enjoy the benefits of Secrets Resorts and Spas’ signature Unlimited-Luxury vacation concept which offers 24-hour room and concierge services, daily refreshed mini-bars, limitless access to gourmet dining and premium beverage brands across the resort’s seven distinctive restaurants and seven bar and lounge areas, as well as countless daytime and nighttime activities and entertainment.
Travelers who book their getaway to Secrets The Vine Cancun by September 30 for travel through December 22, will enjoy the Free Fall promotional savings, which includes complementary 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th nights, as well as $200 in resort coupons for use towards fine wine, romantic dining and spa treatments.
