Mahekal Beach Resort is uniquely magical for resorts in the Riviera Maya. Located on a spectacularly beautiful beach with swaying palm trees and crystal-clear water, the resort’s stunning natural surroundings are complimented by its boho-chic design. What could be more romantic than falling asleep to the sound of waves in a thatched-roof bungalow right on the beach? How about gourmet dinners in open-air, ocean-view settings? Perhaps an indulgent spa? Your destination wedding will include all these and more at Mahekal Beach Resort.
Your wedding guests will fall in love at first sight with the Garden-View Palapa King room. Like a luxurious treehouse, this guest room sits tucked away amid tropical foliage on the 2nd floor of a 2-unit casita. Your guests will have a traditional thatched roof above them and a terrace with hammocks to relax on.
For the wedding couple, we recommend Beach House King Plunge Pool, located on the ground floor of a 2-story beach house against the white sand. This 553 square-foot guest suite features a separate living room and bedroom and an expansive furnished terrace with a plunge pool, hammocks, loungers, and a dining table for 4. Organic, Mayan-inspired amenities and hand-crafted furnishings and décor made with locally-sourced materials will immerse you in the essence of the Riviera Maya.
Mahekal Beach Resort features 3 delicious restaurants and 3 stylish bars. Enjoy a casual breakfast in an open-air setting at Cocina, or dine on fresh-caught seafood dishes alongside hand-crafted cocktails at Las Olas Restaurant and Bar. Fuego Restaurante y Cantina serves locally-sourced Mexican cuisine right on the beach, and a pool bar makes it convenient to grab a tropical cocktail while you’re lounging by the pool.
Take a dip in one of the resort’s 4 sparkling outdoor pools, an ocean-front infinity pool, or relax in a lounge chair on the sand. Want to snorkel in the famously beautiful coral reefs just off-shore? The resort has snorkeling gear you can rent and bikes you can ride through beautiful Playa del Carmen. The 24-hour fitness center at Mahekal Beach Resort lets you keep up with your regular exercise routine, and a luxurious spa offers signature services inspired by ancient Mayan healing traditions.
Mahekal translates to “magical”, and that’s what your destination wedding in Mexico should be. We work alongside the talented wedding team at Mahekal Beach Resort to create a picture-perfect celebration tailored to your unique style. Gourmet menus, professional photography, and live music for your ceremony are all things we can take care of while you relax in luxury. Walk down a white, sandy path adorned with red rose petals to say your vows with the Caribbean Sea at your back. Now that’s what we call magical.
When staying at Mahekal Beach Resort, you’ll be just steps away from La Quinta Avenida, the world-famous central strip of vibrant Playa del Carmen. There you can dine at delectable local restaurants, shop for colorful souvenirs, and dance the night away at exciting nightlife venues. Take a tour of the incredible ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum or Chichen Itza, or swim with endangered sea turtles in the Caribbean waters.
