Just a short drive down the coast from Playa del Carmen on the Yucatán Peninsula lies The Royal Suites Yucatán by Palladium — the ultimate Mexico getaway. If you’re looking to get the royal treatment on your next tropical vacation, consider a stay at this VIP luxury resort.
The Royal Suites Yucatán by Palladium
The adults-only, all inclusive resort is a smaller 130-suite exclusive area of the larger Grand Palladium Resort, but allows complete access to the full resort’s 5-star amenities.
The privacy and VIP treatment at The Royal Suites Yucatán by Palladium is all any peace-seeking adult could ask for on a vacation. With everything this resort includes — a private beach with Bali beds, first-class spa, exclusive bars and restaurants — it’s not hard to see why this is paradise on the Yucatán.
The rooms at The Royal Suites are quite literally “the height of luxury.” A private terrace with a jacuzzi soaking tub is standard in each room with the option to upgrade to the Mayan Suites, which are right on the water with lush, green terrace views. In these separate indoor/outdoor suites, the additional outdoor shower and hammock are an added bonus.
There is no shortage of dining options here, with 14 restaurants and buffets and a whopping 27 bars scattered throughout the grounds. Two of the restaurants and bars are exclusive to Royal Suites guests, which I recommend taking advantage of for the sake of comfort and convenience.
The a la carte Japanese restaurant is wonderful, but the outdoor ocean-side cabana restaurant really embraces the luxury beach resort atmosphere. Helpful tip: be sure to make a reservation for the individual restaurants a day or two in advance.
Also, be sure not to miss the swim-up bar at the La Laguna pool; this is one treat you won’t be able to enjoy at home.
With the variety of activities available both on and off the resort, it’s likely you’ll want to spend more than a little of your time out and about. You’ll have the chance to get out on the water to snorkel, scuba dive, and windsurf, or you can hang back for a game of beach volleyball or — my personal favorite — yoga on the beach. Live music and entertainers every night, with the occasional karaoke contest, are sure to keep you entertained once the sun goes down.
Sport enthusiasts will appreciate a little competition at The Grand Palladium’s variety of soccer, archery, tennis, or you can completely unwind and get a couple’s massage on the beach after relaxing in the spa’s sauna.
Whether you envision spending your next vacation sipping drinks under a cabana or learning to sail Mexico’s smoothest waters, The Royal Suites Yucatán by Palladium has all the necessities for a perfect long weekend or holiday getaway!
