Unlimited Vacation Club (UVC) by AMResorts, a vacation membership program with a portfolio of 36 resorts in Mexico, the Caribbean and Costa Rica, continues its rapid expansion with the announcement of its newest luxury property – Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya – opening November 1, 2015 in the heart of the Riviera Maya. The vacation club’s portfolio grew by more than 20 percent in 2014, with the addition of five resorts.
Secrets Akumal is the 13th property for the Secrets Resorts & Spas brand. Minutes from Playa del Carmen, the adults-only, all-inclusive resort overlooks stunning Akumal Beach, a recipient of the TripAdvisor 2014 Travelers’ Choice Award as one of the Top 10 Beaches in Mexico.
“We continue to expand with amazing resorts in many of the world’s most sought-after vacation spots,” said Gonzalo del Peon, president of AMResorts. “Like its sister properties, Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya will appeal to sophisticated travelers seeking a luxurious and romantic getaway at an excellent value.”
Sun, Sea and Salsa
The romantic hideaway will count among its charms: gorgeous ocean views, gourmet dining and top-shelf spirits with nine different dining venues and six stylish bars, a state-of-the-art spa, an expansive infinity-style pool, beach and pool wait service, and countless day and evening activities.
Secrets Akumal will house 434 elegant suites, each with a private terrace or balcony, double Jacuzzi and ultra-comfortable bed dressed in luxurious linens. Select suites will offer direct swim-out access from a private patio to a pool. As thoughtful hosts, suites also will offer complimentary Wi-Fi with Unlimited Connectivity, a mini-bar refreshed daily, and 24-hour room service for destination-style dining without having to leave your room.
Couples will fall for Secrets Akumal’s six à la carte gourmet restaurants featuring Mexican as well as international fare. Looking for something casual? The property also will have a buffet venue, a café and a grill. Or, guests can sneak away for a romantic meal on the beach. Special menus – including gluten-free and vegetarian – will be available.
Secrets Akumal will house six bars and lounges. Serving top-shelf beverages, the bars will beckon guests to swim up, wind down, party and play. Diverse restaurants and bars, combined with nightly entertainment in an open-air theater, will assure there’s something new to try every night. Plus, the Unlimited Vacation Club’s Sip, Savor & See program will invite guests to enjoy dinner, drinks and live evening entertainment at nearby participating resorts.
Guests will tailor their stay to their interests, whether exploring coral reefs on a snorkeling or diving tour, teeing off with complimentary greens fees at the nearby Riviera Maya Golf Club or lazing by the infinity pool with endless ocean views. The world’s second largest barrier reef sits just 150 meters off the resort’s beach. Additionally, Secrets Akumal will be close to Mayan archeological sites and the world’s largest underground river. These nearby sites as well as an array of exciting activities – Euro-bungee, sport fishing, sailing, windsurfing, dance lessons, cocktail classes and more – assure guests will always find something new to try.
After a full day of soaking up the sun, guests will duck in for a rejuvenating treatment at Secrets Spa by Pevonia. This 7,000 square-foot spa will soothe with the latest hydro and aromatherapy, massages, facials, body wraps and polishes, mani-pedis and more.
Breathtaking scenery, spirited cocktail hours, gourmet dinner receptions and more will make for weddings and meetings to remember. The resort will house more than 8,000 square feet of flexible, state-of-the-art meeting and celebration space for up to 600 people. Whether on the beach or in the ballroom, meetings, weddings and receptions will be supported by a dedicated team of planners to assure exquisite events.
Additionally, guests at Secrets Akumal will enjoy all the benefits of AMResorts’ Unlimited-Luxury® vacation concept, in which everything is included: 24-hour room and concierge services, limitless access to gourmet dining with no reservations required, unlimited top-shelf spirits at bars and lounges, pool and beach wait service, twice-daily maid service, a daily refreshed mini-bar, daily activities, nightly entertainment and more.
