On my last trip to the Riviera Maya, I saw two great Bridal Suites. They are both situated within the spa of the resort and offer a tranquil place for the bride and her nearest and dearest to get ready with her.
I know it was a big deal for me to keep up the tradition of getting my hair and makeup done together with my bridesmaids and family. I love the pictures that documented every step of the process and the fun we had doing it. Close ups of my shoes, my ring, and my dress hanging up turned out pristine. Candid shots of my bridesmaids toasting and giggling are priceless. The girls that joined me that day are very special to me and I have the memory of that morning to live on forever.
That is probably the reason why I was so in love with the bridal suites that I saw at Azul Fives and Grand Velas. I could just picture a slue of girls, bridesmaids, sisters, moms, and grandmas, all getting the bride ready for her special day.
Azul Fives, on the Riviera Mayan coast, is a newly built, all-inclusive resort that really caters to everyone. With their Gourmet Inclusive by Karisma dining options and contemporary décor, this is a great resort for a destination wedding.
The Bridal Spa Suite at Azul Fives features a Jacuzzi tub, relaxing massage table, and stations for a manicure, pedicure, hair styling and make-up. The mirrored dressing area featured a headless manikin to put your dress on. I loved this idea because you could have your dress to view while you were getting ready. It just adds to the excitement and anticipation of the day. The spa offers a Bride Essential package with a honey body scrub, a flower petal bath, lemongrass body wrap, hydrating facial, manicure and pedicure. You are for sure coming out of that bridal suite looking the best you have ever looked!
We also visited Grand Velas Riviera Maya and were absolutely floored by this luxurious resort. Asian inspired, lavish guest rooms, extravagant inclusions, just so much to offer. The spa was no less.
Offering posh spa treatments and a 50 minute water journey prior to each service, the whole experience feels lavish & calming all at the same time. The bride can experience all of her treatments in a private bridal suite complete with a Jacuzzi tub, shower and dressing area. To me this is the perfect escape before your walk to the altar.
I really don’t think a Bridal Suite is necessary or would I choose a resort only based that it has one, but I do think it’s a great added benefit. There is a lot that goes into choosing the perfect resort for your destination wedding. I do think that Azul Fives and Grand Velas have the right idea to make their brides feel at home and pampered while celebrating one of the most important days of your life.
