I have been traveling a lot lately, even by my standards! ¬†I am so excited to share my most recent adventure! ¬†I recently stayed at the incredible Rosewood Mayakoba Resort. ¬†I had heard wonderful things about this resort and my clients had raved about it so my expectations were high- and everything about the resort exceeded these expectations! ¬†The food, drinks, and service were all so incredible that it was pretty tough returning to reality!
There is so much that I loved about this resort. ¬†It is set within lagoons, and almost every suite has a private dock. ¬†So you arrive to your suite by boat which I loved! ¬†Then every suite has a private pool which is pretty amazing. ¬†Nice to take an after dinner swim with your sweetie! ¬†The resort has 128 suites that are really spread out, so every suite feels incredibly private.
¬†There are a number of special things the resort can do for honeymoon couples. ¬†For example there is a small island within the lagoons with just a wood platform. ¬†You can be picked up from your suite by boat, taken to this island for a couples massage, then returned back to your suite by boat. ¬†Pretty cool right?! ¬†They can also set up a private dinner either within the lagoons or on the beach, and then have a bubble bath with a bottle of champagne ready back in your suite. ¬†WOW.
The beach was absolutely gorgeous. ¬†The water was pretty calm and warm so I loved swimming every day. ¬†The service down on the beach is really amazing as well- the staff would come by to offer to clean sunglasses, offering fruit popsicles, lime sorbet, small desserts, and even offering head massages! ¬†I felt so incredibly pampered, and more relaxed than I had been in a very long time.
Clients of Ever After Honeymoons that stay at Rosewood Mayakoba receive complimentary breakfast daily, a room upgrade if available at arrival, and a $100 spa credit! ¬†So contact us if this sounds your perfect honeymoon spot!

Matachica Resort and Spa¬† ¬†“A¬†luxurious¬†yet laid-back resort with wonderful staff and accommodations.¬† Our casita’s breathtaking view was¬†directly facing the Carribean Sea. We¬†went snorkeling at the 2nd largest barrier reef and actually swam with nurse sharks and sting rays!”
Favorite memories at Matachica¬†“The spa was wonderful and our massages felt great after a full-day¬†adventure at the Lamanai Mayan ruins.¬†¬†The resort included¬†complimentary kayaks or¬†bicycles, but most of the time we preferred to¬†relax with a drink on our hammock and enjoy the clear blue water on the beaches. The food at¬†Mambo¬†was unbelievable; a mix of Creole and¬†Carribean flavors¬†with fresh seafood, beef,¬†fruit and vegetables¬†of unique combinations.”
“Ka’ana Resort¬†is located inland in the heart of the mountains and jungle, and what a¬†change it was from San Pedro!¬† The resort was 5-star quality with excellent service and attention to detail, and¬†our room got¬†upgraded too!”
Adventure + Indulgence¬† “Our favorite tour by far was the Actun Tunichil Muknal caves, where we swam and¬†climbed our way through dark tunnels to find Mayan ruins and history.¬† It was¬†definitely the highlight of our trip¬†and worth a trip to¬†San Ignacio while in Belize.¬† The¬†food and drinks were excellent and we even¬†got to enjoy a poolside romantic dinner on our last¬†night¬†created by one of the staff.”
You better Belize¬†it! The people of Belize were so friendly and made us feel welcome everywhere we went.¬† There was a great mix of secluded luxury and historic adventure.

With the arrival of cooler temperatures and horizon of colored leaves I’m thinking one thing… fall, fall fall! One of the best places to travel to during this season is Riviera Maya, Mexico.
Jayson and Jamie knew what they wanted. ¬†They desired a small and relaxed hotel with a boutique feel, but dreaded the idea of planning, researching or budgeting. Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita¬†was the perfect option. It offers the best of both worlds with its boutique style quality and all-inclusive ¬†rates.
From the newlyweds:¬†“We LOVED Zoetry!¬† The resort was so incredibly beautiful and so peaceful.¬† Our room was a spacious suite with a private patio and plunge pool, so we felt like we were able to make ourselves at home for the week we were there. But most of all, the people that worked at the resort were the most kind, hospitable people we have ever met! They provided second mile service our whole trip and made it so special and memorable.”
Yummy!¬†All-inclusive means that everything from sushi to guacamole is one request away to arriving at your room or to the pool.
Upgrade me!¬†“Our particular booking, we got the honeymoon package, which included an 80-minute couples massage on the dock, a private dinner on the beach, a special turn-down service one night, and several other romantic activities!¬† We were also upgraded on our flight down to Zoetry!”
Honeymoon tips:¬†“Figure out what‚Äôs most important for you and prioritize that.¬† We knew we wanted to relax, so we avoided sight-seeing trips or destinations that were really far away from where we live in Atlanta.¬† Traveling to Zoetry was so easy, and we didn‚Äôt have to think about a single thing while we were there ‚Äď which is exactly what we wanted!”
If you’re looking for a “peaceful, romantic, and easy” honeymoon contact me! I’m happy to make your honeymoon all this and more.

My absolute favorite part about our stay at the Viceroy Riviera Maya was their gorgeous villas! ¬†The hotel is smaller with just 41 private villas. ¬†And every villa has a large terrace with a private pool! ¬†I was in a Royal Jungle Villa. ¬†Come check it out!
I also loved the outdoor shower!
The absolute best part was our large private terrace! ¬†I wish I was still laying on that hammock!
I loved just how spacious and private the villas are! ¬†So perfect for honeymoon couples.
