Situated amidst the awe-inspiring landscapes and pristine beaches of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, Secrets Moxche offers an idyllic setting to host your dream wedding celebration.

Our team at Vacationeeze loves a new resort to work with for beautiful tropical destination weddings in Mexico

Here we’ll share everything we’ve learned about this new dreamy destination and why we think it could be an excellent option for your destination wedding in Mexico.

Secrets Moxché Hotel Overview

Secrets moxcheGuests staying at Secrets Moxché Playa Del Carmen will enjoy luxury at every turn as they explore the pristine white sandy beach, eat delicious cuisine from around the world, splash in 7 heated swimming pools, and experience some top-class amenities and entertainment. 

There are 485 lavish suites, each elegantly designed with a private balcony or terrace, hot tub, and a 24-hour concierge service. Some suites have a tropical view, while others look out on the blue Caribbean ocean.

By day or night, there is always lots to do at Secrets Moxche – if you want to get off the lounge chair, that is! 

There’s windsurfing, beach volleyball, and excellent snorkeling options in the three man-made cenotes on site. 

Golf lovers will be happy as an 18-hole golf course is located nearby. And, of course, Secrets Moxche will give you and your guests a chance to relax and be pampered with a world-class Spa – why not treat yourself to a massage?

In the evenings, you’ll find an open-air theater with fantastic shows and live music performances throughout the resort.

Adventurous guests can also explore the nearby Riviera Maya and Yucatan regions, with ancient Mayan ruins to discover.

When did Secrets Moxché open? 

Secrets Moxché Playa Del Carmen opened its doors in April 2022, making it the newest Secrets resort in the Caribbean.

Where is Secrets Moxché located?

Secrets Moxché Playa Del Carmen is located in the heart of the Riviera Maya, just a 10-minute drive from Playa del Carmen’s popular Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue). 

How far is Secrets Moxche from Cancun airport?

Secrets Moxché is approximately 23km south of Cancun airport. The transfer will take about 45 minutes.

For destination weddings, we find this is right on the cusp of feeling “far” for your guests, but we think the pros outweigh the cons, as outlined below. 

Is Secrets Moxché adults only?

Yes. All Secrets resorts are adults only, meaning you can be assured your luxurious vacation will be uninterrupted by kids! 

The resort is not, however, for couples only, so singles, groups of friends, and families with adult children are all welcome.

How is the dining at Secrets Moxché?

You will be spoiled for choice at this resort, with delicious gourmet cuisine options offering enticing flavors and gorgeous settings. 

There are 11 unique dining selections – 7 à la carte restaurants (two of which are on the beach), one buffet, a grill and a café, and multiple bars:

  • Allora – Delicious traditional Italian cuisine
  • Dos Almas – a Mexican culinary experience including a taco bar.
  • Bamboo – Southeast Asian delicacies and an alternative plant-based menu.
  • Barefoot Grill – casual light lunch option on the beach.
  • Bisou – romantic dining of elegant French cuisine.
  • Ember – a Steakhouse with an open-fire grill and fine cuts of meat.
  • Market Café – local and international food choices.
  • Seasoul – intimate romance with a seafood menu
  • Suki – Pan-Asian cuisine, including a fresh sushi bar.
  • Coco Café – daytime coffee and snacks, both indoor and outdoor 
  • Observatory Preferred Rooftop – Preferred Club restaurant with gorgeous views

Pros and Cons of Secrets Moxche weddings

Let’s start with the Pro’s… 

First, Secrets Moxché is a stunning and modern new beach destination overlooking the ocean, which won’t fail to capture your hearts for your wedding celebration in Mexico. 

You will benefit from an on-site wedding coordinator who will assist you with every beautiful detail to customize your wedding vision – whether this is boho beach or contemporary chic.

The packages are flexible, and you can easily add elements to make your tropical wedding dreams come true! For example, you’ll find multiple options for both your plated menus and your cocktail party, not just given one set menu.

You and your partner will receive free anniversary nights in the future, which is a lovely touch – for example, if you stay a minimum of five nights over your first-anniversary date, you will receive two additional nights free.

The Cons – well, we can’t think of many, to be honest. The only major one is if you or any of your guests have children that you would want to be included in your wedding. As the resort is for adults only, bringing them in for your big day is impossible. However, if your guests are happy to leave them behind so they can indulge in adult-only relaxation, you’re a winner here!
