My Mexican Getaway - Akumal Beach Bay and Wellness Resort

Nearly a year later, I'm finally writing a post on my holiday to Mexico. For various reasons, I've not written this sooner, but having a major case of wanderlust on my hands, I think that now is the best time to reflect on the incredible resort I was lucky enough to be able to call my home for ten days last May.

When booking Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort, I knew to expect luxury, zen and stunning surroundings. I'd spent weeks in the run up re-reading the many TripAdvisor reviews and finding out as much as I could about the area. Having cast my eyes over the idyllic beach pictures for months on end, I thought I was prepared for the scenic beachside views, but I can honestly say that even thinking back to my holiday now, I can not get over how beautiful the resort was.

Greeted with smiles, cooling towels and a cocktail that escapes my memories now, from the moment I set foot into the resort I knew that this holiday would be one of those 'once in a lifetime' kind of events. Having only stayed in all-inclusive hotels in Europe up until this point, it was eye opening for me to experience what I can only describe as absolute luxury.

The room was simple, but incredibly clean and had the perk of being on the ground floor (you wouldn't normally consider this a perk but wait for it!) which led out straight onto the beach. I spent many mornings rising early to go and stand and watch the sun rise over the ocean, rocking away in one of the cosy beach hammocks.

The selection of food available was extensive. There were all the usual home suspects you'd be familiar with, but also an array of Mexican delights to try. The highlight for me was the never ending supply of fresh fruit and fish, and don't even get me started on how amazing the guacamole and fresh salsa was. It's not difficult to go away and indulge in all the wrong foods, but at Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort, there were so many fresh, healthy and tasty choices, it would've been a crime to choose chips over the authentic creations available.

What's more is that there are four different restaurants on site, that offer a finer dining experience. We ended up eating in the dining hall for breakfast and lunch, but using the restaurants every evening. The impeccable service, themed cuisine and wonderful atmosphere meant that these restaurants were an integral part of our stay. For more casual meals, there was a fresh sushi bar on the beach where you could choose your sushi and see it be made up in front of you - teamed with a pina colada I was in culinary heaven!

From day to day there was lots of activities going on at the hotel, from yoga sessions to tequila tasting, if you found yourself tired of the beach (I'm a sun worshipper so definitely wasn't!) then there was plenty to explore. I actually tried numerous activities both in and outside of the resort. from swimming in a cenote (a type of underwater cave), to a freshwater lagoon, as well as paddleboarding in the ocean, swimming with sea turtles and even quad biking through the Mexican jungle. Anyone who knows me will know heights is my number one fear, and I even found myself zip wiring across a Mexican jungle, after climbing up a ridiculously high platform that wouldn't have passed health and safety laws in this country!

I would return to Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort in a heartbeat. The combination of breathtaking beach views, unparalleled service and just the feeling of being in a relaxing, safe and restful environment allowed me to experience Mexico in a way that I didn't even know was possible. It's not difficult to understand why so many people return to this resort year after year, affectionately referring to it as there home under the sun.

Until next time..
