While having a drink in the lounge last night we met a couple from LA who travelled alone for their wedding. As any group of wedding journalist would do we decided to hold them an impromptu reception back in the Presidential Suite until way into the morning!
Feeling refreshed and still laughing about the bottles of champagne and dancing to Pitbull we headed out for a boat ride to Isla Mujeres. First stop was the dolphin experience where we got to swim with dolphins, manatees, sea lions, sting rays and sharks. It was a great experience on a beautiful sunny day. Then we were off to Isla Mujeres Palace which is one of the smallest in the Palace chain with 62 rooms. It is the perfect option of those looking for a total buyout of the property for a wedding party.
In the evening it was cocktails at the beautiful Beach Palace. One of the unique features of this property is that you can have your wedding on the rooftop and there is also an illuminated dance floor for a reception on the beach. Finally it was time to see the opulent Le Blanc Spa Resort. For the past few days it was spoken about as almost a mystic Mayan myth. So magical and majestic that words would always come short. From the entrance, to the spa, to the food, to the design, it was beyond even what I imagined.
This has been an educational and entertaining trip as we got to see what Palace Resorts offer romance travellers. Look out for our full article in our next issue!
