Unique Wedding Venue? Choose the Beach!

Celebrate in true luxury, beach-side on our soft-sand venues! 

Winter in Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya is the perfect season to enjoy the tropical weather. The temperatures are warm, but more comfortable than the higher, summer weather.  This makes for a warm evening and a cool breeze at sunset that you and your guests can celebrate as the sun sinks into the cool blue ocean transforming the sky to gorgeous rose gold and pink. 

In Grand Velas Riviera Maya, we have nine inspiring wedding venues, and the beach venues are some of the most popular, especially in winter. Among the various outdoor areas that can be customized to your liking, we recommend the seaside Ocean Terrace, the Deck Ambassador over the Beach and the jaw-dropping Grand Class Beach venue on the soft, white sand.

Pamper yourself at the oh-so relaxing SE Spa

In winter, the dry cool air can affect our skin and bodies. This makes the SE Spa perfect for a winter getaway! Indulge in facials, body treatments and ancient Mayan rituals based on age-old traditions and techniques unique to Riviera Maya. The SE Spa was named one of the 30 most luxurious spas in the world by Forbes magazine. 

You can treat yourself to an entire day of relaxation and well-being prior to the wedding, and make sure to include a yoga and meditation session on the beach!
