If you're looking for a romantic escape this winter, or are planning your upcoming minimoon and honeymoon,  might we suggest a jaunt to beautiful Cancun, Mexico? Just a four hour flight away from Toronto, located in the heart of Cancun, one of the city's most esteemed outposts is the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa, whose borders sit right on the beach, taking full advantage of the city’s 20 kilometres of pristine white beaches.

While you can, of course, take to the sand for an afternoon of relaxing (complete with a bar and waitstaff services should you choose to become a member of the Diamond Club), it’s a place of endless opportunities. If you’re adventurous, head seaside for an afternoon of motorized water sports. If you’re looking to redefine relaxation, enjoy yoga classes hosted on the beach. If you’re looking to impress that special someone, customize your trip by adding on one of their specifically designed Romance or Anniversary Packages, both of which include a romantic dinner for two on the beach.

In addition to these beachside activities, the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa offers endless options for customization with special occasion packages which can include breakfast in bed, celebratory champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and couple’s spa treatments. For those in the pursuit of true romance, upgrade to Hideaway accommodations for increased privacy and access to preferential areas and activities like gourmet dining and cocktails, poolside mixology classes, sunset champagne, and nightly entertainment. With all Hideaway activities open only to adults, this package was designed with Honeymooners in mind. To take it yet another step further and have your celebrations tailored specifically to you, joining the Diamond Club will get you a trained butler to meet nearly any need. With services like luggage packing and unpacking, ironing, laundry pick-up, assistance with reservations, and even party planning services, you can celebrate your special occasions without losing any precious relaxation time.

While your butler is taking care of the technicalities, you and your significant other can head to one of the resort’s 20 restaurants, lounges, and cafés or take a minute (or an hour!) for yourself with an extended spa treatment. With a couples massage and a his-and-her’s hydrotherapy treatment appearing on the Royal Spa’s extensive menu, it won’t be hard to convince your other half to unwind along with you. And considering the diverse list of accommodations and activity options offered by the Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa, convincing them of the entire vacation should be a breeze.
