Secrets Akumal

Secrets Akumal – a brand new adults only all-inclusive set on the cozy Bay of Akumal – the place of the Turtle.

Secrets Akumal is located half way between Playa del Carmen and Tulum – an hour an a half transfer from Cancun airport. Akumal, “place of the Turtle” in Maya, is know for it’s incredible snorkeling. Step out of the resort and into the water and swim with huge green turtles that come to munch on the seagrass.

Akumal Bay is a public beach and although the South end, where Secrets is located is generally quieter you will still have plenty of people watching possibilities. In fact the face that Akumal is public is part of the charm. There are a few cute shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Our fav is the amazing ice cream from Turtle bay bakery. There is just enough going on to be entertaining and give you something to explore. Akumal is a tiny dot in comparison to even Tulum and it feels like a cozy little village

Other activities include swimming in the beautiful cenotes 10 minutes drive North. Tulum and the Tulum ruins and of course Playa del Carmen are both around 20-30 minutes drive away

Secrets Akumal itself is relatively compact. The center of the hotel is dominated by the water features and pools. The gardens catch a spectacular golden sunset light and there are ceremony locations from the beach to the gardens to the impressive arch.

Secrets Akumal is one of Del Sol Photography’s preferred luxury hotel vendors for destination weddings and events.

What our brides and grooms had to say about Secrets Akumal

“Secrets Akumal has a resort feel with luxury touches. Carolina and Elisa were amazing throughout the whole planning process. Although we had plenty of time to plan (two years!) they made the process stress-free! The ceremony was picture perfect (it was another reason I was so emotional walking down the aisle!) and the reception was amazing. The food, service and accommodations were beyond perfect. We loved it so much, we are going back in November!!!” Jennifer + Jordan

“We chose Secrets Akumal because of its style. The facades of each building don’t remind you of a hotel — they remind you of a tropical village. We also liked the idea of being able to snorkel and kayak just outside the resort. It’s not every day you can walk a few yards to the beach and swim with sea turtles! The staff was impeccable. They were very kind and went out of their way to do nearly anything for us. Miriam, our wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful in preparing our special day. She made sure everything was absolutely perfect.” – Lindsey + Greg

We chose Secrets Akumal ultimately because it was the “place of the turtle”. We, especially me, love animals and nature and thought that the resort reflected and brought together both of those things so well. It was a beautiful resort on a beautiful beach and we had the most fabulous time. Plus, we got to snorkel with turtles right at the resort!!!” – Lindsey + James

“Our coordinator, Carolina was fantastic, and the day of our wedding was seamless. From the time the ceremony started, I never worried once. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and are so grateful for the wonderful staff that helped with our wedding!”

“We chose Secrets Akumal because we loved that the resort was new! The Riviera Maya is absolutely gorgeous and have the absolute friendliest people and the most beautiful beaches! We wanted something very intimate and small and a destination wedding was perfect for that! We also knew that the background to our pictures would be breathtaking!” – Jill + Tyler

Our experience at Secrets Akumal was phenomenal! The beach was amazing and by far where we spent the majority of our time. Soft white sand, seaweed was nowhere to be found, exclusive to resort guests only, the color of the water was something we thought only existed in photos. Nothing but relaxation! Stephany + Joshua
