On August 19, 2012, Secrets The Vine celebrated its Grand Opening and welcomed its first guests to the newest of their luxury adult-only hotels located only 9 miles from Cancun International Airport in Cancun‘s popular Hotel Zone. This wine-inspired masterpiece resort was designed by the award-winning Rockwell Group and consists of 495 chic guest rooms designed as a personal retreat with signature design elements including: Private balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Laguna Nichupte, Italian porcelain floors polished to mimic wood, custom covered headboards and teak wood furnishings, luxury linens and Rockwell Group-designed APF mirrors and white glass wrapped bathrooms. Each guest room is a warm and inviting sanctuary that draws you in and surrounds you with comfort and state-of-the-art conveniences. The Secrets The Vine offers three infinity pools and a Preferred Club pool that provide breathtaking views stretching to the horizon. The magnificent pool area displays layers of platforms and water intersecting on its way down to the ocean. Six gourmet à la carte restaurants plus a fine dining buffet are sure to intrigue the most discerning palate.
The sparkling bold elegant entry to Secrets The Vine boasts Mayan culture and Yucatan Peninsula design influences such as the concierge area, envisioned as a smoking room, that mixes traditional hacienda and contemporary style furniture.
The Secrets The Vine’s signature design also celebrates fine wine, starting with its lobby which houses The Vine Bar, a designated wine tasting area for guests, featuring a wine wall with nearly 3,000 varieties. There, guests can enjoy sommelier-led tastings hosted at the locally handcrafted wood table with seating for up to 14 guests. A Vine Bazaar completes the wine-centric experience. This area of the resort offers a variety of relaxing spaces including The Vine Café, The Vine Bar & The Lounge, Terrace, and The Library, which was designed to recall the ancient Mexican tradition of storytelling.
Local cenote formations influenced the design, treatment selection and hydrotherapy circuit at the 12,580 square-feet Secrets Spa by Pevonia. The spa’s main lounge or Cenote Room, recreates the effect of natural cenotes with a three feet deep plunge pool forming the floor with backlit nooks throughout to emulate the beams of sunlight peeking through rock formations. The spa also features a Jacuzzi, steam room, glass pool, and fitness center with ocean views.
As with all Secrets, guests will enjoy the benefits of Secrets Resorts & Spas’ signature Unlimited-Luxury® vacation concept which offers 24-hour room and concierge services, daily refreshed mini-bars, limitless access to gourmet dining and premium beverage brands across the resort’s seven distinctive restaurants and seven bar and lounge areas and countless daytime and nighttime activities and entertainment.
A new and unique feature that Secrets The Vine will also offer is Unlimited Connectivity across the resort with the Secrets Resorts app, which is accessible for mobile download to iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and Blackberry phones. The free app allows guests to stay connected and communicate with family and friends back home using the app-to-app calls feature to call local and international (U.S. and Canada) phones and send messages over the hotel’s Wi-Fi network without incurring any international cell phone roaming charges. Guests also can create user profiles using their email, Facebook or Twitter accounts to contact staff directly, tailor personal deal preferences, book spa appointments, reserve excursions and much more.
