The Hard Rock resort brand wants the same thing you want for your guests at your wedding: to make everyone feel like a celebrity from the moment they set foot on the property. Take a look at some of the highlights that make this resort a favorite among our clients for their destination wedding.
The grounds are split into two areas: the Hacienda section and the Heaven section. The Hacienda one allows adults and kids; however, the Heaven section is adults-only. Keep in mind that if your ceremony or reception is on the Heaven side, those guests under 18 years of age won’t be able to access it.
Whether you’ll have a smaller wedding or a large and glamorous one, you’ll easily find a venue here that will work for you. Hard Rock Riviera Maya offers multiple spots for you to choose from on their property so you’ll certainly have options. The most popular ones among our clients for ceremonies have been the outdoor locations.
They offer several beaches to choose from to get married outdoors right in front of the water: Starlight Beach, Heaven Beach, Hacienda Beach, and Maracas Beach. They also offer outdoor terraces that provide shade for you and your guests to keep you cool.
If you choose to get married right by the water, you’ll love that Hard Rock has private beaches. And for your ceremony, you’ll find ballrooms that have ample space for as many guests as you’d like.
Authentic South Asian wedding experiences start here
The Hard Rock Riviera Maya does not have special packages for South Asian weddings. This can actually be a good thing for brides who like to customize everything or who don’t want to feel trapped between picking between two or three packages available.
They are quite experienced in supporting South Asian weddings and they understand the special customs and unique requirements that make our weddings so special. That means that they’ll ensure that every aspect of the South Asian weddings there will have an authentic touch.
You’ll appreciate that they partner with local South Asian certified vendors who can provide all that you’d need for your wedding from the décor, to mehndi to all you’d need for the baraat. The vendors have deep experience with South Asian weddings so you’d work with people who can provide expert knowledge.
And since food is such an important part of our culture and our wedding experiences as South Asians, you’ll love that they have an Indian chef in-house. The chef can prepare traditional foods from all parts of India according to your preferences. Many couples also like to add in foods that are local to Mexico or blend in foods from other cultures.
You’ll find many options with menus from all over the world! International, American, Caribbean, Mexican, Mediterranean, Asian, Barbecue, Italian, Seafood and Dominican cuisine options are available.
