Why a Secrets Resort is perfect for a romantic getaway

01 February 2019

When it comes to romantic retreats, any couples escaping to one of the 15 Secrets Resorts in the Caribbean and South America are virtually guaranteed a memorable time away.

Newcomers to Secrets Resorts might be curious as to precisely why so many people – including us – rate these adults-only resorts so highly, so we’ve taken it up ourselves to highlight some of the reasons why they’re so great.


Secrets Resorts may not have the ability to spark romance at will (not yet at least), but each resort goes all-out with a focus on ‘Unlimited-Luxury®’. This is a commitment to fulfilling guests’ every wish and achieving the ultimate all-inclusive experience.

All guests at Secrets can expect limitless access to gourmet à la carte dining options (without the need for a reservation), as well as wait service by the pool and beach, unlimited top-shelf spirits, 24-hour room and concierge service, not to mention a minibar, refreshed daily with almost any beverage you can think of.

Luxurious accommodation

Secrets don’t play around when it comes to styling the hundreds of rooms and suites at each resort either.

One of our favourites in the Secrets Resorts roster is Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun, which boasts the largest and most lavish suites in the Riviera Maya with a modern, sleek décor, cosy beds and furnished terraces and patios.

Some are mad about Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya too, with its fresh take on Mexican art La Huasteca style embroidery and Mayan gold accents, while others love the British colonial décor of the suites at Secrets St James Montego Bay.

Whichever destination you opt for though, you’re going to be wowed by the level of luxurious style at each Secrets Resort.

“Secrets Silversands fully lived up to our expectations. The friendly and efficient service was as good - if not better - than any we have experienced on five-star cruise ships. We will almost certainly be back to enjoy a Secrets Resort again next year.”

Endless opportunities to do absolutely anything

If basking in the glorious sunshine with your loved one by one of the sparkling pools somehow loses its novelty, there’s no end of things to do with Secrets Resorts.

Whether you’re into darts or tennis, yoga or horseback riding, resorts like Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay are set up so that you can get up to virtually anything.

Guests can tee off at one of the four 18-hole golf courses that sit mere minutes away from Secrets Wild Orchid. Every Secrets Resort is situated by a beach too and in the case of Secrets Wild Orchid, with its mile-long private beach leading into the waters of Montego Bay, there’s an array of sand and sea exercises to pursue – be it windsurfing, snorkelling or beach football.

You’ll probably have to stop and think which pool you want to take a dip in too. That’s because resorts like Secrets Silversands boast more than 43,000 square feet of pristine swimming pools, including an infinity pool.

Meanwhile, over at Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya – home to one of Mexico’s largest green sea turtle populations and one of the top 10 beaches in Mexico - you can even borrow courtesy goggles and swim amongst gorgeous green sea turtles.

“Our first impressions of Secrets Akumal were “wow!” It has beautiful swimming pools, stunning décor and even the option of swimming with turtles in the sea – a must for any holiday here.”

World-class spas

What could be more romantic that treating you and yours to a sensual side-by-side massage in a serene private escape?

Every Secrets resort boasts a world-class spa offering treatments just like this, and at Secrets Akumal, guests can seek a sanctuary for the senses at a spa that covers more than 18,000 square foot.

The Secrets Spa by Pevonia® at Secrets Akumal lets you pamper yourself in a stunning spa surrounded by a hydrotherapy circuit, sauna and steam room and relaxing indoor lounge area. Massages, body treatments, facials, manicures, pedicures and a full-service beauty salon are all available.

Sensational cuisine

Couples can cap off their romantic day by dining at one of the fine eateries available at each Secrets Resort - and there’s no need to reserve a table.

At Secrets St James Montego Bay, guests can choose from seven à la carte restaurants, such as the open-air Himitsu, serving Pan-Asian specialities, or El Patio with its classic Mexican cuisine. The ocean views available at the beach-side Oceana restaurant are guaranteed to add to the romance too.
