This summer, Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa launches ‘Family Portraits’ – tailor-made family experiences that are beautifully captured by a personal photographer for an album full of memories. Specially curated cultural and educational experiences exploring the ancient archaeological sites, interactive cookery classes revealing the secret art of chocolate and pastry making; and playful indulgence on the sizzling shores all honour the Mayan belief that society is rooted in the family.
Young explorers can uncover the ancient treasures of Tulum including El Castillo and the Temple of Descending God with an expert guide from the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico. This private tour will take families back in time to the 1500s as they discover some of the most beautiful and well-preserved ruins in the world and learn the history of the Maya culture that inhabited the citadel before the Spanish conquest.
Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa is surrounded by lush tropical jungle that can easily be explored on bikes; weave along the pathways where parrots perch on the palm trees, iguanas skulk through the undergrowth and spider monkeys play in the tree canopy.
Hidden amongst the jungle surroundings is the Kinan Spa that offers specialist family spa experiences such as the Relax with Mum and Dad pamper sessions which include aloe vera facials and massages and a soothing flower-petal shower. Little ones can also be treated to the Bee Pampered experience, including a Mayan jungle honey facial and foot massage.
SWEET TASTE OF MEXICO
Families can indulge in a finger-licking Chocolate-making workshop at La Aldea Maya, a traditional casita built in adobe Mayan style, where the resort’s pastry chef will host a private ‘pozol’ (traditional Mayan drink) and chocolate truffle masterclass.
Afterwards, retreat to the beach where the hotel chef will prepare a gourmet picnic basket full of family favourites with a Mexican twist, all set up under a private canopy to shelter from the Mexican sun.
In order to capture those magical moments, a personal photographer can be arranged to shadow the holiday to ensure families leave paradise with memories that can be enjoyed after their trip.
Bespoke packages can be tailored to each itinerary and start from a single activity shoot to create lasting memories of a particular experience, ranging to a complete holiday photography package which will document their family adventure from start to finish, producing an extensive album of memories for the whole family to cherish.
The Master Suites and One Bedroom Suites are the perfect choice for families, both have separate sleeping areas for the children and have beautiful ocean views. Children are also welcomed with special amenities such as water pistols, beach balls and surfboards to make them feel like mini VIPs.
The Family Time package is priced from US$980 per night for a family of four, minimum three night stay, available until December 18, 2019*.
This includes complimentary accommodation for up to two children under 12 sharing the suite, daily a la carte breakfast, Chocolate Experience at Aldea Maya, one family picnic on the beach, one half-day tour to Tulum, complimentary morning bike tour and 20% discount on family treatments at Kinan Spa.
