A Weekend Wellness Getaway at Secrets Moxché Playa del Carmen

A Weekend Wellness Getaway at Secrets Moxché Playa del Carmen

When you think about the perfect getaway for a weekend filled with rest, relaxation, and pampering, images of crystal-clear blue water might come to mind. But what if I told you that there's a place where every detail is taken care of and all you have to do is show up and enjoy?

Look no further than Secrets Moxché Playa del Carmen in Mexico, where travelers can relax and recover over a long weekend.

 

Why Wellness Travel

Myself and two of my closest friends had been discussing a trip to honor 2023 milestone birthdays but hadn't been able to make the commitment.  We are all high-achievers, super-moms and have all experienced a tremendous amount of "highs and lows" the past 3 years. Between marriage, birth, deaths, divorce, new jobs, new businesses, love, and loss, stress had piled on top of us until we could barely breathe- we were BURNT OUT.  We enrolled the assistance of Jillian at Magnolia Travel Group to ensure that our plans made it out of the group chat and to say that we were "wow'd" would be an understatement.  

Jillian provided several options but it was clear that Secrets Moxché Playa del Carmen was the clear selection. With lush grounds dotted by beautiful flora and ocean views from almost any angle plus top notch amenities such as 24/7 concierge services; luxury accommodations including elegant marble bathrooms adorned with rainfall showers; delectable food options presenting warm hospitality at its finest – this gem found along Mexico's Caribbean coastline isn't your average vacation spot. Whether it be an oasis among white sand beaches or the multi-level infinity pool set against calming Mediterranean spa music, Secrets Moxché Playa del Carmen, a World of Hyatt property, offers an opportunity to reconnect through luxurious experiences while recovering abroad in style!

Beyond Indulgent Spa  

At the heart of Secrets Moxché is the luxurious spa.  I indulged in a :50 minute Relaxation Massage followed by a trip to the dry sauna,  hydrotherapy cold plunge and the idyllic relaxing temperate pool space.  Just off of the main space is a space for guided morning yoga and an igloo-shaped sweat lodge for a shaman-led Temazcal ceremony.

Tip: You can use your resort credits towards spa services.

Nourishing Fare 

Perhaps nothing could have prepared me for the creative, fresh concoctions at one of the resort's many restaurants.  From Thai, French, Italian, Japanese and Mexican, the quality and presentation exceeded all expectations. My favorite and perhaps most simple of dishes was the poolside catch of the day.  Paired with a fresh asparagus and  romaine salad and sautéed potatoes, I was FLOORED by the flavors that honored the fish itself.  

Tip: Secrets Moxché inquired and honored all dietary restrictions at every opportunity and had a variety of options for all. 

Idyllic Views and Experiences

The most impressive part of the entire holiday was the exquisite resort ambiance.  The days began with sunrise coffee and a beachfront bungalow to absorb the serenity of a new beginning.  I then dipped into one of the many heated pools, grottos and whirlpools. Having the option to relax poolside whilst listening to live music or taking a nap in one of the over-water hammocks provided the flexibility I desire in a vacation.  

Tip: Secrets Moxché is an adult-only property and, as a mother, I can safely say that this was the first vacation I've taken in years that I returned feeling truly rejuvenated.    

Final Review 

Investing in a getaway was important for my mental, physical, and emotional health and I am incredibly grateful for the privilege to invest in my whole-self wellness in this way.  Whether it be an international vacation or a 24-hour staycation, I hope you find time to honor your needs to recharge in 2023.
