When most people envision a destination wedding it typically includes their toes in the sand, wind in their hair and the sound of the ocean waves crashing around them. It’s a beautiful setting for a wedding, but we admit it’s not necessarily for everyone. One of the misconceptions that we often encounter is wedding couples who don’t think that a destination wedding is right for them just because they can’t picture themselves saying “I do” on a beach. In reality, there are so many gorgeous venues to suit any wedding style. One of our favourite, more unique properties for a destination wedding is the gorgeous Chablé Resort.
Chablé is a luxurious holistic property located in the heart of the Mayan forest on the Yucatan Peninsula. Forty deluxe villas are spread across the 750 acre property, surrounded by soaring ceiba trees and lush gardens. The villas are constructed of all natural materials to blend harmoniously with the surrounding flora. Designed to encourage guests to make the most of the beautiful environment, each villa has its own pool, outdoor shower and large outdoor living room complete with hammocks.
The resort considers its spa facilities their “crown jewel.” Located right beside a cenote, the spa draws on the natural wonder considered sacred by the Mayans with a seamless combination of ancient techniques and modern amenities designed to offer the ultimate in restorative relaxation. After a treatment guests can enjoy one of the many other highlights of the spa facilities including a sauna, a salt cabin, a floatarium, a water circuit, a meditation room and a juice bar. There is even a special “garden kitchen” for anyone who is interested in learning how to prepare their own aromatherapy, so when guests return home they can recreate a portion of this incredible spa experience.
Picture yourself saying “I do” in the lush landscape of the Mayan forest. Following your ceremony, you and your guests can celebrate under the stars in one of the expansive gardens while enjoying a decadent meal featuring seasonal ingredients sourced directly from the on-site gardens. And to toast? Chablé offers an array of excusive vintages in their wine cellar, along with the largest private tequila collection in the world.
As if the gorgeous amenities aren’t enough to convince you that Chablé Resort is the perfection location for your destination wedding, another highlight is its proximity to the historic city of Mérida. Less than 25 minutes away are some of the most famed Mayan ruins and cenotes, along with museums, art galleries and lively markets full of the rich cultural history that Mérida is known for.
Chablé Resort is the perfect retreat for any couple that is looking for both luxury and a departure from the ordinary. The authentic Mexican experience will make the special occasion that much more memorable, and we know that you and your guests will be reminiscing about it fondly in the years to come.
