There are many unique all-inclusive resorts in Cancun and Riviera Maya in Mexico, but non stands out quite like the Blue Diamond Luxury Boutique Hotel.

The Blue Diamond Luxury Boutique Hotel, formerly the Mandarin Oriental until it changed hands to Blue Bay Resorts in 2012, is one worth considering for romantic getaways, small groups or girlfriend getaways.

The Blue Diamond is an adults-only, AAA Four Diamond and part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. It features 128 stunning and spacious suites, is all-inclusive, adults-only and offers a la carte luxury food service.

The suites are a perfect mix of limestone, wood and luxury amenities. It is all so well done…I just want to live there!

For large groups, Blue Diamond is available for full take-over. However, it is best suited for incentive groups of 50 to 60 rooms given function space, back-up space and meeting facilities. Blue Diamond is located 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen situated between Secrets Capri and Rosewood Mayakoba and has its own secure entrance off the highway.

How to Be Eco-Friendly While Traveling

Posted By : travelisswell/ 16 0

With the tourism industry booming, it’s important we all do our part in keeping our favorite destinations as beautiful as ever.

While many resorts around the globe have become eco-friendly, We would like to give you a few ideas on ways you can all help to preserve our beautiful planet.

That bottle of water waiting for you when you check into your room? DRINK IT. It’s pretty easy to gulp down half and then leave it on the nightstand for housekeeping to take. If this is something you do multiple times a day, combine your water bottles into one throughout the day.

While we may enjoy walking into a freshly cleaned room, cutting down on housekeeping visits helps more than you may realize. The one small thing that can greatly help—hang your towels. Reuse them. With hundreds of resorts globally, just imagine how much water and energy is used from washing alone.

Fun fact—biodegradable sunscreen is actually a thing. If you’re visiting a Caribbean destination, you know sunscreen is an absolute must. This specific sunscreen has removed the chemicals and oils that are bad for the marine life, which gives our coral reefs and animals the ability to continue to thrive.

While it may sound silly, bring your own cup. If you’re staying 4 days and nights at a resort, one plastic cup for each meal, that’s twelve cups gone to waste—and that’s not counting the numerous cocktail glasses while lounging by the pool.

So many resorts have become eco-friendly over the last few years. With so many options to choose from, you’re bound to find one that fits your every need.

Thank You.
