Say “I do” on a postcard-perfect white sand beach with the brilliantly blue Caribbean Sea as your backdrop. This all-inclusive tropical resort offers the destination wedding in Mexico you’ve been dreaming of.

This exotic escape in the beautiful Riviera Maya is named after the private white sand beach it overlooks, complete with swaying palm trees, crystal clear water, and a warm sea breeze. Grand Palladium White Sand Resort & Spa is an all-inclusive wedding destination in Mexico, with lush tropical surroundings, modern and stylish accommodations, an indulgent spa, and a wide array of gourmet dining options.


The standard guest room at Grand Palladium White Sand is the Junior Suite with Garden View.

This recently renovated suite will give your wedding guests 570 square feet to stretch out in and offers an open-plan living room and bedroom. Featuring attractive décor inspired by the Mayan culture, marble floors, and a high ceiling, this suite is bright, airy, and spacious. The suite opens out onto a furnished balcony overlooking the natural lake on the property. Each suite offers its own Jacuzzi tub and a luxurious marble bathroom.

For the wedding couple, we recommend the Romance Bungalow. This elegant and modern suite has a private entrance and a palapa thatched roof, as well as a jetty and canoe for direct access to the natural lake. You’ll have a furnished terrace with a hammock to relax in while admiring the stunning view of the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea.

Dining & Drinks

Grand Palladium White Sand offers a vast array of delectable dining options that will take you on a culinary journey around the world.

We love Portofino, the resort’s Italian restaurant serving delicious pasta, pizzas, and an excellent Veal Parmesan. Bahia E Brasa serves Brazilian cuisine, with the finest meats prepared tableside. For a group dinner with the wedding party, La Lola serves shared plates of Spanish tapas, while La Adelita offers authentic Mexican delicacies in a vibrant and colorful setting. Poseidon is where the wedding couple can enjoy a romantic dinner al fresco while looking out over the Caribbean Sea.

The stylish bars at the resort give you easy access to a refreshing margarita or a shot of the finest tequila. Order a drink without even leaving the pool at one of the swim-up bars, or listen to live music at the beachfront bar.

Activities & Entertainment

There are so many things to see and do on property that you and your wedding guests will find activities to suit everyone’s taste in fun.

Snorkel in the majestic coral reefs with their colorful marine life, or take part in a kayak race on the Caribbean Sea. Learn how to salsa dance, play a game of mini-golf / put-put golf, or get the whole wedding party together for karaoke. A pontoon boat takes guests on a scenic ride around the natural lake on property.

The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down – you’ll get to enjoy exciting theatrical shows at the resort’s sister properties, and Chic Cabaret is a dinner and show experience you can’t miss.


There are 6 shimmering lagoon-like pools at Grand Palladium White Sand resort, including a relaxing adults-only pool with a swim-up bar, and an expansive main pool with stunning views of the ocean.

For your wedding guests who like to stay fit on vacation, there’s a fitness center on-site, offering state-of-the-art exercise equipment and classes in aerobics.

Zentropia is the tranquil and luxurious spa on property where you can get some much-needed pampering. We love the Blueberry Refresh Mojito Body Wrap and the Tepezcohuite & aloe after-sun treatment. Romantic couples treatments for the bride and groom include a moonlight couples massage on the beach with champagne included.
