Spa at Royalton Riviera Cancun

Spa days have always been one of my favourite things to do, so when we seen the deal for the Royalton Spa Cancun, we thought ‘your only on honeymoon once’. It wasn’t cheap, it worked out about Β£100 per person but it’s something your never going to experience again. It starts off with you choosing which oil you would like for your massage. We both opted for Orange, but the lavender and eucalyptus both spelt equally beautiful. You were then allocated your own therapist who lead you into separate changing areas. You are given a robe, flip flops and water if needed. I was then given a beautiful body scrub to apply before entering the steam room. I was left there for about 5 minutes before being told to have a cold shower. You are then taken into a sauna for a further five minutes with a cold compress on your head. To finish the introduction you take a 8 minute dip in the jacuzzi before being lead into the main spa to meet your …

Honeymooning in Mexico (Part 2)

One week down, one week to go! Since being here I’ve been in a little bubble that seems surreal. I still can’t get my head around that fact the wedding has passed and so has our amazing honeymoon. Since we were lucky enough to be here for two weeks we dedicated the second one to getting out and experiencing Mexico a bit more, rather than lying by the pool all week again. It started with a very active trip to Coba. It started off in the jungle where we walked about 2 miles to a site of an ancient pyramid. It is one of the 7 wonders of the world and you are still lucky enough to be able to climb to the top. Its 120 steps to the top and believe me when I say this, it’s so steep you basically feel like it’s a straight up vertical climb ( check our honeymoon video) . It even has a rope to help you because it’s so steep! This mixed with 31 degree heat was …

Honeymooning in Mexico (Part 1)

It’s funny that even up until the moment I got to the airport I didn’t feel like it was holiday time. All my focus had been on getting through the wedding that I kind of forgot I was going on honeymoon. However that didn’t last long as the moment we arrived I knew for sure I was in paradise. We chose to stay at the Royal Riviera Cancun. I have honestly never seen or stayed in a resort this big. It has 12 pools, 24hr room service, live shows every night and 6 restaurants to choose from. Since it was a special occasion and it was going to be a holiday of a life time, we booked to stay in a junior suite with our own swim up pool. It was great to have the opportunity to go back to the room and your own pool when the main areas got busy. I’d definitely recommend splashing the extra cash to experience the ‘suite Life’. Unfortunately, the first two days were a wash out. We were …

Overnight At Turnberry

It’s been almost a month since we went away from Ross’s birthday but, I can’t stop thinking about how amazing it was. And, how perfect every moment was. To cut a long story short, I decided for this year for his birthday I would take him away for the night to Trump Turnberry in Ayr. He’s a major golf fan and since we went there for a day trip, it’sΒ been at the back of my mind to go. To be honest, I don’t even know where to begin. The hotel is out of this world. It’s a different level of luxury. At first, I felt very self conscious at how posh is seemed and how the other guest were acting. They arrived in the fanciest cars with the newest and most expensive clothes on. But, I decided to play along. I had fairly paid my way after all. When you arrive, your bags are taken from you and your are escorted into a side office to check in. Its decorated in the softest cream leather …
