Unlimited Luxury in Mexico

Cornel Schalkwyk on 18 July 2015
Lively, modern and chic – the perfect description for the adult-only haven of Secrets Silversands.

Situated in the Riviera Maya on the Eastern Coast of Mexico, this 5 star resort is conveniently located to experience the best that the Cancun area has to offer. Just 15 miles South of Cancun City, the resort is close enough to the city to enjoy the shopping and nightlife, but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle and relax with nature on your doorstep.

Further to the South, it is just over an hour to reach Tulum where you can experience the ancient cliff-side Tulum ruins. A guided tour is highly recommended to hear all about the history of the Mayan people, their beliefs and traditions. Force yourself to get up early for a morning tour of Tulum, since the sun is brutal when it gets to noon and the crowds become unpleasant. On your way back you can cool down at a couple of cenotes (natural sinkhole shaped freshwater pools) or by snorkelling with turtles at Akumal.

Back at the resort, Secrets have truly raised the bar when it comes to ‘All Inclusive’. The exclusive privileges of their Unlimited Luxury program will treat you to the highest standards of quality and service where everything is included. Gourmet dining at eight different restaurants, various bars with unlimited top-shelf spirits, 24/7 room service, day and evening entertainment, tennis, complimentary greens fees, non-motorised water sports, eight pools and an ocean front jacuzzi. No hidden costs for towels or romantic sun loungers. It is all included.

The luxury doesn’t stop when it comes to the rooms either. Secrets Silversands is an all-suite resort with elegant Jacuzzis (big enough for two) in every single room! The modern rooms are extremely spacious and come with a tropical, pool or ocean view. And yes you have guessed it, the mini bar is all inclusive and restocked daily. My favourite part of the room is the Secrets Box, which is a discreet and romantic way to get your room service delivered without the need to even open the door.

Even with all this distraction in an exotic holiday destination, our technologically driven world often results in the increasingly familiar question of wi-fi. And I hope that having read this far, you would know the answer without me having to spell it out…

Welcome to the world of Unlimited Luxury.
