Viceroy Riviera Maya


I recently returned from a week in the Yucatan area of Mexico.  My trip was a combination of hotel site inspections,  a luxury travel show with our global travel suppliers and was concluded with a couples getaway with my hubby.  I began my adventure at the gorgeous and sexy Viceroy Resort just outside Playa del Carmen.

Endless Beach and Pool Views



Rain forest paths at Viceroy

Winding paths throughout the property

This intimate hideaway boasts 41 thatched roof bungalows, all with private plunge pools, hammocks that won’t let you go and winding pathways reminiscent of a rain forest. I felt slightly guilty at having all of this to myself, but with time I just accepted it.

A visit to the Viceroy would not be complete without enjoying a yoga class on the overwater pier or indulging in a treatment at the holistic spa.  If you are feeling adventurous, try the experience of the Mayan ritual of Temazcal.  The word Temazcal originates from the Aztec, “calli”, meaning house, and “temas”, meaning vapor or steam. The structure, made from mortar and stone, is symbolic of Mother Nature’s womb. Through the use of steam and healing herbs, the Temazcal ceremony purifies the body and the spirit.

Beach time at the Viceroy….can you see the heart?

The Viceroy is the ideal spot for a couples escape, honeymoon, girls getaway or destination wedding.  An easy drive from the airport and with daily non- stop flights from most US gateways, the Viceroy should not be missed!
