Excited doesn’t begin to explain how I’m feeling about my next trip!* I’m heading to one of the most sophisticated, ultra luxury, all-inclusive resorts in Riviera Maya, Mexico, the Grand Velas Riviera Maya for its fifth anniversary! The Grand Velas is the only family-friendly, all inclusive resort in the Mexican Caribbean to receive a “Five Diamonds” rating by AAA. Designed for couples, girlfriends, or parents traveling with children, if you’re looking for a luxury all-inclusive resort in the Riviera Maya, the Grand Velas is it!

La Blast Fitness Program
As part of a special anniversary event, I get to dance with the stars in the Grand Velas fun fitness program, La Blast. La Blast is a new, interval training dance fitness program created by Dancing with the Stars celebrity Louis Van Amstel. The program gets you in the best shape while learning different styles of dance.
There’s no question I will be Eating La Vida Loca and feeding my culinary senses as I sample all the top rated food. I’m definitely looking forward to burning some calories while I’m there.
There’s also a new French Cocktail Menu at Grand Velas Riviera Maya inspired by the legendary French singer and cultural icon, Edith Piaf. The menu features 12 drinks using traditional top-shelf French liqueurs.
The resort offers oceanfront and jungle terraces, private plunge pools, in-room massage tables, whirlpool bathtubs, and a Kids Club, and high-tech teen lounge. There’s also Four Diamond Restaurants on site, Koi Sports Bar and Dancing lounge, and a full service spa. Located just sixty miles from Cancun International airport, there’s a lot to see within driving distance in the Riviera Maya. I hope to visit Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Maya Coba.
Disclosure: I was invited as a guest to experience the resort and I can’t wait to share my experience and photos with you. All opinions are my own.
