Capella Ixtapa is arguably the most romantic hotel in the world. I love meeting the many couples who come here to celebrate an engagement, wedding, honeymoon or anniversary. For them it is an opportunity to experience a tropical paradise in an intimate environment, where they can feel like they are the only two people in the world.
What is more romantic than having a romantic dinner under the stars, while you listen to the sound of the crashing waves below you in beautiful Mexico? What can be sweeter and more indulging than having a chocolate spa therapy for two in our open-air cabaña with an ocean view? How about having your own luxury suite with a terrace and private pool, where you won’t even feel like getting out of your suite?
And while everyone has their own definition of romance, these are just some of the reasons why Capella Ixtapa is such a romantic and special place to me. I love waking up with the sound of the ocean, followed by a refreshing morning swim while I wait for the room service with my breakfast and freshly prepared juice and coffee. After lunch I love lounging at the terrace and enjoying my private pool, and at night, after dinner, I love star gazing (again from the pool) – it is so romantic!
Love in Mexico is enhanced by our food as well. Did you know that several of Mexican foods are aphrodisiacs? Our Sous Chef Miguel Baltazar taught me that chile, chocolate, oysters, avocado, vanilla, honey passion fruit, pineapple and other foods are believed to have aphrodisiac qualities since the Aztec times! Our couples love to join our chef for a private cooking class and learn more about Mexican food, or join our mixologist for margarita making classes (you can create and name your own margarita!). A special experience is also our couples spa treatment, where you can try one of the special treatments our spa team has prepared based on ancient mexican traditions and regional flowers.
If you are more adventurous, I recommend a romantic horseback ride for two – I love riding through a local coconut plantation, or along the pristine beaches of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. For all who love the ocean I suggest a romantic sunset sail, where you can enjoy our beautiful scenery from the sea.
Tropical climate, lush nature, beautiful location, amazing food, pristine Capella Hotels hospitality and our signature service are just some of the reasons why we like to think that at Capella Ixtapa love grows deeper, and romantic memories are made to last a lifetime.
