On the Road: The Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa


Right before the launch of our new website, Mary-Frances and Alison had the opportunity to visit The Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico. We’re still raving about the incredible sights they encountered on their Fam trip, so we’re thrilled to finally share their top takeaways with you!

Situated on the fabulous Yucatán peninsula, the Belmond Maroma packs all of the amenities one could hope for in a potential destination event location—think bleached sand, warm turquoise water, chartered yachts and sailboats, ecological discovery tours, and more. The best news? It’s all just a 30-minute drive away from Cancún International Airport and just as convenient to the ancient Mayan historical sites and captivating cenotes that make the region so unique. Thanks to the fact that the resort is surrounded by 25 acres of protected jungle, a stay at the Belmond Maroma gives guests the sense of discovering a tucked-away jewel—the perfect environment for a wedding or special event!

During their stay at the Belmond Maroma, MF and Ali enjoyed activities ranging from ceviche and tequila tastings on the beach to stopping by a traditional Temazcal, or sweat lodge, with an ocean view. Meeting new friends including the resort’s Executive Chef and tortilla maker was another highlight of the experience! MF and Ali loved having the option to add fresh cocoa, guacamole, or cheese to their homemade tortillas each day. Finally, Freddie’s Tequila and Ceviche Bar—and the Maroma Margarita made with top secret ingredients—is not to be missed. “I’ve never been to a beachfront as beautiful as Maroma!” said MF. “The entire experience is over the top in the best way possible. You won’t find a more well-appointed resort!”
