Cancun Excellence - Beach Wedding Article

Cancun Excellence

Cancun, while known as a popular vacation destination, may not be the first place that springs to mind when dreaming of a luxurious destination wedding on the beach.

The majority of hotels offering a fun vacation in Cancun are located to the South of the City itself, but a 20 minute drive to the North will reveal a whole new side to Cancun as a destination. Nestled in spacious estates, far from the crowded beaches of Cancun's 'Hotel Island', the Excellence Playa Mujeras, and the Excellence Rivieria Cancun, are redifining the term all-inclusive and forever changing the face of Cancun.

Playa Mujeras is the northern-most of the two resorts, located on a 20 mile peninsula in an unspoiled Caribbean paradise. Overlooking an amazing, powder soft and perfect-white beach, the resort is close enough to Cancun to make sightseeing easy, yet far enough away to provide a peace and tranquility perfect for a romantic beach wedding or honeymoon.

Every detail of the resort screams decadence, from the sweeping staircase leading you to the sophisticated Martini Bar once you leave the lobby, to the object d'art and immaculate architectural details that can be seen at every turn, to the perfectly presented and ever present (but never intrusive) staff who seem to materialise the moment you so much as think of a refreshing cocktail.

This level of service and unadulterated opulence extends throughout the resort to the suites available for guests.

The suites themselves start with the Junior Suite, moving to Swim Up Suites, all the way to Rooftop Terrace Suites complete with their own personal open-air spa pools. The Excellence Club also offers 2 Honeymoon Suites and the Imperial Suite - which offer separate bedroom and living room, expansive patios, round the clock concierge service and spectacular views of the powder soft beach.

Each suite is delightfully decorated with Mexican touches complementing a Mediterranean attention to detail and quality, right down to the huge day bed adorning large the private patios for

The suites, restaurants and bars are all centered around the luxurious spa, which resides on its own 'island' created by a river-like swimming pool (one of seven in total) circling its entirety. The Spa offers a range of wellness treatments that put it up amongst some of the top spas in the Caribbean, and the deluxe personal pampering services have to be tried to be believed.

To ensure the Bride and Groom can truly relax during their stay, the on-site wedding coordinator will work with you from the moment you say 'Yes!' to the time your last guests leave, ensuring that no matter how far away you are, and no matter how distant your wedding day, you'll know every detail is covered long before you see her waiting to meet you on your arrival. Whether your day is an intimate affair with your and your partner, or a celebration for family and friends, you can rest assured that your beach front ceremony and reception in any of the 8 gourmet restaurants will be handled with a warm and friendly professionalism that will let you focus n the day, not the details.

Once your day is done, you'll not be short of ways to have fun for the rest of your stay. By day, head to the shopping mecca of Cancun, or head off on a sightseeing tour and discover historic Mexico. Set sail on the ocean, dive the depths with the on-site scuba instructors, or simply relax on the beach and work on your tan.

If you decide you need a little time alone to be pampered at the Spa, you can send your man of to play a few rounds of golf at the world class Greg Norman golf course just down the road. The 18 hole course offers not only some breathtaking views, but also allows 'guilt-free golfing' - the course is one of the most eco-friendly courses in existence and prides itself on the steps taken to preserve the natural environment it resides within.

With 8 internationally themed gourmet restaurants, an open air movie theatre, live music, dancing, and local entertainment every night around the eleven bars and nightclub spread across the resort, your nights will be just as full as your days - you're only worry will be how to fit it all in before you have to leave.

Playa Mujeras, and its sister resort Riviera Cancun offer couples the complete package: the beauty of Mexico, the luxury of the worlds finest resorts and the all important wedding specialists to make sure your day is the memory of a lifetime.
