Guests who stay at Grand Velas Riviera Maya will have a new VIP experience available to them starting this summer.
The resort's Henequen Experience will take guests on a private helicopter ride to the Hacienda Sotuta de Peon, a hacienda from the 19th century just outside the city of Merida. They will spend the afternoon discovering the local henequen plant, will tour the hacienda by carriage, and will swim in the Dzul Ha cenote.
After returning to Grand Velas, guests will enjoy the resort's signature beverage, which includes Mexico's ancient liquors like bacanora, stool, tuxca and pox. The experience concludes with a private dinner at the Mayan restaurant, Chaka, with a menu of Yucatecan dishes.
Accommodations will be in the Zen Grand Suites, which have private terraces and Jacuzzi tubs. The four-night experience costs $3,488 per person for two people.
