This adult-only resort is found in the heart of the Riviera Maya, gazing out onto the ocean as the calm Caribbean waves gently caress the white sands of Akumal's beautiful coastline. The superb location provides guests the perfect base from which to explore the many wonders of Mexico, with the ruins of ancient pre-Hispanic civilizations at Tulum and Coba just a short distance away, and Playa del Carmen within easy reach.

The resort's back garden however is an attraction in itself and guests need not venture far to discover exotic wildlife, fascinating history and culture. Akumal alone boasts incredible flora and fauna housing the second largest barrier reef in the world (just 150 metres from the hotel's beach) and the largest green sea turtle population in Mexico – in fact, Akumal actually means 'Place of Turtles' in Mayan. The resort therefore offers unparalleled snorkelling and diving experiences. Also a stone's throw from Secrets Akumal is the world's largest underground river and an authentic Mayan village.

Besides these exciting excursions and ocean adventures, Secrets Akumal provides activities to keep guests busy at every hour of the day. Find tranquility at Secrets Spa where you'll be pampered with luxurious treatments that'll leave you feeling rejuvenated and re-charged. Alternatively, for those looking to keep active, the resort offers a fully equipped fitness centre, beach volleyball, archery, yoga, dance classes, football, ping-pong, watersports and golf.

Enjoy the sunshine at the resort's outdoor jacuzzi or three large pools, including an infinity pool with breathtaking views of the ocean, or take a dip in one of the 11 smaller pools, one of which features a swim-up bar where you can enjoy tropical cocktails. There is even an open-air theatre!

By night the fun doesn't stop. Pamper your taste buds at the nine dining options including six a la carte gourmet restaurants, a buffet, a café and grill which collectively serve a huge range of cuisines including Mexican, Pan-Asian, Italian, French and fresh seafood. Let the night lead you to one of the six bars and lounges. Nightly entertainment can be enjoyed at Showtime Bar and Desires Music Lounge features excellent DJs and a dance floor.

Here couples will find an unparalleled, intimate escape. The astounding natural beauty of the hotel surrounds and peaceful Akumal shores make it the perfect couples retreat or honeymoon destination. The resort offers fantastic honeymoon and wedding packages so that you can say 'I do' undisturbed in a serene paradise.
