Playa Mujeres is a luxury resort area offering something very special: close proximity to the never-ending nightlife of Cancun but with the promise of more relaxed vibes where you stay. You’ll find a gorgeous marina here and one of the best golf courses in or near Cancun: The Mujeres Golf Club (designed by Greg Norman).
All of your guests to really enjoy their time at your wedding and those who want a bit more adventure can find it close by, too. The area is 25 minutes north of Cancun’s airport and the population is smaller than Cancun’s with less resorts here so you’ll get to truly enjoy your time on the beach without as many crowds.
Take a look at several hotels here we love recommending and see why Playa Mujeres should be on your list of places to consider for your destination wedding.
Planet Hollywood Cancun
This resort has “Cancun,” in the name but the property is actually located in Costa Mujeres which is just 40 minutes north of Cancun. You’ll love that because you’ll be close enough to access Cancun’s famous night life offerings but just far enough to have some tranquility, too. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t have fun here, too.
This resort offers a water park right on the property, a lazy river, a theater, mini golf and much more. It’s a family-friendly place so everyone will find something fun to do. Planet Hollywood offers a total of 11 dining options (including Sutra, an Indian restaurant) on site so you and your guests can enjoy authentic South Asian food in addition to other cuisines you love.
What if you or some of your guests are vegetarian or vegan? That’s not a problem at all here because the resort offers its PuraVegan program which ensures guests can find meals and drinks that fit their food choices easily.
When it comes to weddings here, they have two packages that are specifically designed for South Asian weddings that cover the sangeet, vaatna ceremony, mehndi party, ceremony and reception.
You’ll also have several options for where you’d like to have your events including two rooftop venues, the beach and the Palm Pavilion.
