AAA Five Diamond, all-inclusive excellence awaits in the Mexican Caribbean at Grand Velas Riviera Maya. Aside from offering expansive accommodations with striking ocean views or mystical garden vistas, this locale offers guests a plethora of activities, like the award-winning SE Spa for adults, exclusive state-of-the-art teen’s club and baby concierge for little ones.
This family-friendly paradise will also please all discerning palates alike with its one-of-a-kind dining and an array of restaurants led by world-class chefs…including Cocina de Autor, the AAA Five Diamond all-inclusive restaurant at the hands of world-renowned celebrity chefs, Chef Bruno Oteiza and Chef Mikel Alonso. (One of our favorite on-property experiences!)
Also new to this culinary haven? An ancestral tasting experience 60 feet underground in one of the destination’s relatively undiscovered cenotes. Cenotes, for those unfamiliar, are deep natural wells or sinkholes typically in the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula formed by the collapse of limestone that exposes ground water below, and often times used by the ancient Mayans for sacrificial offerings…
Begin your unique gastronomical journey with a private tour of the 130 foot cave, Chukum Cenote, while taking in the sites of countless stalagmites and stalactites, or perhaps a plunge in the turquoise crystalline waters. After becoming acclimated with your dining ‘venue’, Velas Resorts’ Culinary Director, Maître Cuisinier de France Michel Mustiere, will design a three-course gourmet lunch curated towards your personal preference, ranging from cheese and charcuterie to handmade truffles for dessert.
But, that’s not all…what’s a savory tasting without some ancient Mexican spirits to accompany? (We mean cocktails, of course!) Sip on a variety of ancient libations such as Bacanora, Sotol, Tuxca and Pox and learn of their history while enjoying this majestic experience.
