Honeymoon the Grand Way
By Emily Marcus
There’s nothing quite as magical as the electrifying aquamarine waters of Cancún. Except, maybe, watching those brilliant waves roll in from the balcony of your ocean-view suite at theGrand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Resort. The new, premium program, Ú ,combines the ease and indulgence of an all-inclusive property with the quality and personalization of the luxury resort it’s housed in. Honeymooners will love the decadent spa treatments and unlimited culinary experiences such as The Table, a gourmet 8-course interactive dinner at La Joya Restaurant, or a private dinner featuring grilled lobster on the beach.
What truly sets the Úprogram apart are the unmatched experiences the resort offers,which combine luxury and leisure. Spend mornings relaxing at the spa and toasting at a champagne breakfast buffet, afternoons lounging on the beach, and nights tasting new flavors and learning about Mayan and Mexican culture through the many diverse culinary options. The Úprogram is all about making honeymoon hopes, desires, and fantasies come true.
Each of the resort’s four gourmet restaurants offer their own specialties and top-notch dishes, and the award-winning AAA Five-Diamond Le Basilic restaurant is no exception. Start with the foie gras, mushrooms and truffle ravioli in a duck jus emulsion before diving into the irresistible black pepper angus beef fillet. Don’t leave without polishing off the “Henri Charvet” dark chocolate cake with mint sauce.

The 40,000 sq. ft. Gem Spa is an oasis of rejuvenation and serenity. The Ú program offers unlimited access to the spa’s 10-step Hydrotherapy Ritual and 50% off all spa treatments including the Seventh Wonder Luxury Massage,which uses seven quartz stones corresponding to the chakras of the body. You can even schedule an intimate meal for two by the spa’s azure Pool of Sensations. Does it get any better than fine dining in a fluffy spa robe?
