Thursday 13 Jan 2011
HKS create a Mexican oasis on Maroma Beach
The romantic hideaway, Secrets Maroma Beach Resort, is located in a private haven of untouched beaches and stunning scenery. Designed in the time-honoured style of a quiet Mexican resort, the interior architecture speaks through gentle curves of smooth plaster, rustic wood elements and polished stone surfaces. Warm, neutral tones anchor a calm colour palette with spicy accent colours placed purposely throughout. Traditional and innovative textural surfaces are combined to create a perfect balance.
Upon arrival, guests enter a grand lobby with breathtaking vistas to the ocean and a panorama of the property. This welcoming centre is the heart of the property, acting as host to the reception and lobby, distinctive restaurants, a variety of bars and world-class spa.
Guests can explore the cultures of the world through dining at one of the international cuisine restaurants. From Portofino to Hong Kong, Jalisco to Provence, one will discover exotic atmospheres and flavors that delight all the senses without ever leaving the resort.
Multiple bars and lounges offer a variety of entertainment venues. From elegant rendezvous to swim-up fun, guests can experience lively nights of dancing or enjoy a Cuban cigar at any of the resort hot spots.
Secrets Maroma features 412 ocean view suites, complete with oversized four-poster beds, custom millwork, spa baths and terraced living areas anchored by private plunge pools. Intimate lighting and personalized decor create a romantic hideaway for guests to immerse in.
Finally, Secrets Spa is designed to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. Intimate treatment rooms unfold around the spa's natural garden. Rustic stone details, hand-fired glass accents, mellow colours and a sensory of textures combine harmoniously with the elements of water, earth and fire to create this exclusive tropical paradise, a true oasis for guests looking to be indulged and pampered.
