Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Resorts

Featured Resort Spotlight: Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe

If you’re planning a destination wedding, we’re confident that you won’t find a more romantic place to exchange vows than the powdery sands of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera. Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is one of the most popular all-inclusive properties on this long stretch of Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s northeastern Yucatán Peninsula.


As soon as you pass through the Palace’s lobby doors, you’re surrounded by crystal clear views of the turquoise ocean framed by swaying palm trees. The well-deserved AAA 4 Diamond rating ensures that the luxurious amenities you find here deliver a dream destination wedding in Mexico. This spacious and impeccably designed all-inclusive resort offers so many amenities, you’ll probably never leave the property.


Nine swimming pools and two water parks ensure that everyone stays cool while soaking up the hot sun. Massive semi-Olympic and adults-only pools are set amid a solarium, hammocks, and a game area. Pull up a chaise lounge in the shallow fountain pool, order a cocktail, and sip the day away!


The resort’s exclusive on-site Dolphinarium at Barceló offers guests opportunities to interact with the amazing sea mammals. There’s always an empty chair waiting for you on the beach, and often a sea turtle or two as well. So be sure to keep an eye out!


A Nightclub and three theaters offer lively evening entertainment, and a double-decker bus shuttles you to the other Barcelo resorts and the new Maya Mall – the largest shopping center in the Riviera Maya just steps from your room.

Choose spacious Junior Suites with ocean, tropical garden, or swimming pool views, or splurge and treat yourselves to an oceanfront premium suite where you spread out in nearly 1,400-square feet of elegant and private space. Enjoy stunning views from the hammocks or daybeds on your three terraces. Two third-floor presidential suites with almost 2,000 square feet offer the ultimate in honeymoon pampering.

Plentiful bars include the Carey Lobby Bar with an air-conditioned smoker’s terrace, the Coco Bar in the swimming pool area, El Cielo Bar in the adults’ pool area, and a bar in the Monte Alabán Theatre.


On the white sands, under a gazebo, or in the chapel — you’ve got several lovely options for your destination wedding in Mexico at Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe. Choose a legally binding civil ceremony in Spanish, a spiritual wedding officiated by a shaman, or a Catholic wedding held in the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe chapel.


Once you’ve joined your lives, head over to the U-Spa Wellness and Fitness Centre for some serious pampering and a state-of-the-art workout. The spa provides 26 treatment rooms with every kind of treatment you’d desire. We recommend you travel the torch-lit path to the beach and surrender to the couples moonlight massage accompanied by the sounds of the waves and a bottle of sparkling wine.
