Nizuc Resort and Spa weddings in Cancun, a luxurious wedding venue set amidst the natural beauty of the Mexican Caribbean. In 2013 it was named one of the best new hotels in the world by Conde Nast and it is quickly becoming a venue of choice for discerning brides and grooms.
With 29 acres of private beachfront property and only 274 suites, Nizuc has a boutique feeling. Design is sleek but the resort remains warm and inviting, a blend of modern sensibility and Mayan history. Contemporary architecture of stone and wood, beautiful artwork throughout the resort and the surrounding lagoon, mangrove, gardens and sea. Nizuc is a world-class escape for those looking to tie the knot in paradise.
Nizuc offers 3 room categories: Ocean Suites (adults only) Garden Pool Villas and Residence suites. The resort offers 6 gourmet restaurants and Winik’s Kids Club offers a fun for kids 4 – 12 years old. Activities include tennis with a PBI certified Pro and world-class golfing. There are 2 pools (one of which is adults only) and 2 truly private feeling beaches – no mean feat for the Cancun Hotel Zone. Water lovers will love the SUP paddle board experience or charter a trip to the underwater sculptures at Punta Nizuc.
The Spa and Wellness center is a work of art in itself. The 30,000 square foot oceanfront Spa at NIZUC is the first in the region by internationally acclaimed brand ESPA. It features private treatment rooms with views, saunas, and relaxing pools as well as its own beauty salon, spa café and fitness center.

Elegant and Black Tie Weddings at Nizuc
It’s no coincidence that most of our Nizuc wedding archive feature tuxedos. Nizuc is an ideal venue for Black Tie weddings. Not only does the stylish contemporary architectures and design ooze elegance – it’s practical too. The high ceilinged indoor areas with their huge windows (basically glass walls in some cases) mean that there are plenty of air-conditioned options that still benefit from the stunning scenery. The A-Kan Terrace has the magical combo of high heel friendly floors and an ocean view.
Nizuc South Asian Weddings
Nizuc is one of our top venues for South Asian, Indian and Hindu weddings. Their wedding locations can cater to even the largest wedding groups with ease and their highly personalized service is more than capable of handling all the details of a South Asian Wedding. Check out Anouska and Alexander’s wedding for more inspiration.
Nizuc seems to appeal to couples wanting to elope. There can be a whole host of reasons for that but ultimately the calm and surprisingly private feeling of Nizuc works really well for couples planning to get married, just the two of them.
Nizuc Gay, Lesbian and LGBTQ Weddings
We were honored to photograph the first ever same sex wedding at Nizuc. Huge thanks to Jessica and Hillary for inviting us to be a part of their day. We’ve photographed Gay, Lesbian and LGBTQ Weddings all over Cancun and the Riviera Maya, see our same sex archive for more inspiration :)
Nizuc Resort Cancun Beach Weddings
The Nizuc Beach is one of the best in Cancun and indeed the Mexican. A wide, white sandy point gives the mind boggling opportunity to see the sun set over the water, despite being on the East coast. Nizuc is one of the only resorts that can offer a “true” sunset on the mainland. The generous beach can host BIG weddings – easily accommodating up to 250 guests for a ceremony or banquet and has space for a whopping 350 for cocktail hour.
Nizuc A-Kan Terrace Weddings
The Nizuc A-Kan terrace is an extremely popular and adaptable wedding venue. Weddings ceremonies can have the ocean as a background. They can also be held under the large stone “arch” and have the garden as a background for the ceremony. The A-Kan is also a great spot for cocktail hours and receptions, and is just steps away from delicious air-conditioning.
La Punta Grill Terrace and Lower Deck Weddings
La Punta is a little away from the main buildings of the resort, and has a distinctly private and relaxed vibe. The thatched palapa roof and wooden slatted doors have a more bohemian feel than the rest of the resort while the decorative pools make our photographers happy with epic reflections. La Punta deck and pool can accommodate groups up to 180 for a ceremony or banquet. Tatiana and Wayne had their ceremony, cocktail and reception in La Punta.
Nizuc Pier Weddings
The Nizuc pier is ultimate elopement ceremony location. Intimate wedding groups of up to 18 would also do well here. Surrounded on all sides by water, the wooden deck is romantic and as private as it gets. This dusk wedding on the pier is one of our faves. The pier is also available for cocktails for groups of up to 40, end even for banquets with up to 18 people.
Since SUNSET is a big deal at Nizuc, and most couples want to see the sun go down during their ceremony, we highly recommend scheduling a first look and portraits before you walk down the aisle. If you want bright blue ocean in your portraits you’ll need to do that before the sun goes down and there are a ton of amazing photo ops in Nizuc so a first look is a great idea for a dynamic wedding portfolio.

Nizuc Weddings Testimonials
“I can honestly say that the service at Nizuc was the best service we have ever received. We’ve travelled all over the world so our expectations are high! I love that Nizuc allowed complete customization, unlike most all-inclusive resorts in Cancun that boast cookie-cutter weddings. When I told them I wanted to get married on top of the infinity pool, they accommodated me despite never having done a ceremony on top of the pool before. While the resort is pricey, it was well-worth every penny! The rooms are spectacular, the resort is breathtaking, the food was phenomenal. They even catered to Gizmo bringing him his own private bed and bowl! While the entire staff at Nizuc was truly hospitable, our coordinator Marcela was truly an angel! Not only was she thorough and accommodating, but she was extremely pleasant to work with and her smile is contagious. Marcela understood my vision, and worked extremely hard to make it all come to life. We are forever grateful to her.”
“We had another venue picked out in the Riviera Maya but when we took our planning visit we thought it would be smart to find one more place to look at – just in case! We booked Nizuc for our last night and when we walked in, it was like out of a magazine. It was completely our style – the sleek architecture and zen-like vibe with enough of a variety of restaurants/bars to host festivities with different themes and keep our guests from getting bored! Instead of staying one night, we stayed 5 – and by the next day, we had almost our entire wedding planned out! Savor every moment planning a wedding in such a romantic and magical place. Our planners at Nizuc and our vendors were the greatest pleasure to work with. The warm Mexican culture shines through in the hospitality business there, which you don’t always get to experience in the U.S. Everyone was amazing to work with and really felt like family by the time the weekend was over. They actually cared and we’re just as happy as we were to see our weekend be a success!”
“Nizuc has a very modern feel and we didn’t have to do much to make it a beautiful space. We chose the beach at Nizuc so we could have the sunset in the background during our ceremony, it was one of the only places to really have that. Our guests loved how beautiful the hotel is, it’s the perfect place to relax.”
“We chose Nizuc because we thought the resort was beautiful and the service is first class. There were so many areas that had natural beauty and unique architecture and thought could make for some amazing memories and a memorable back drop for photos. It is very diverse with beaches, lagoon, pools, jungle… It proved to be the perfect venue for us. The only advice I’d give a person considering a wedding in Mexico is to do it!
We had such a fantastic time, the resort did their part and everything went real smooth. We love the beach and the ocean so it was really important to us to have the ceremony and reception close to water. Our wedding reinforced the fact that we chose a perfect venue and our love for one another.”
