For those Indian couples that are slightly less adventurous but still want to have a whole lot of fun while on your dream Indian destination wedding…sit down, grab some masala chai, and let’s talk about what you can do right AT your resort. Here are my Top Ten Resort Activities (Part I)!
1. Resort Spa
Now after all the sharabi shenanigans, and pulled muscles dancing…you’ll definitely want to consider unwinding, right? Well relax all those muscles away with a day away from all the “shor sharaba” and enjoy a stress free day. If you’re feeling really romantic, get a massage side by side with your partner or chill out in the sauna. Either way, you’ve put in so much effort for your wedding, you DESERVE to relax! Whether you are at one of Palace Resorts properties or at a Hard Rock resort, getting pampered at the spa is something you don’t want to miss.
2. Resort Golfing
According to our Ziba Jawanda, golf is one of the most popular options for the groomsmen. Ladies, maybe you want to show the men that “hum kissi se kum nahi”. Challenge the guys to a game and winner chooses their prize! Palace Resorts has built a marvelous Jack Nicklaus designed golf course adjacent to their Moon Palace property. The golf course is available to guests staying at any of their Cancun or Riviera Maya properties including the Beach Palace, Sun Palace, Le Blanc Spa, and Isla Mujeres Palace. The Hard Rock Riviera Maya has its own golf club in Playa del Carmen for those staying a little further south on the beautiful Riviera Maya coast. Looking for a perfect golf package for your dream Indian destination wedding? Feel free to contact us using any of our online forms -- we’ll make sure you have all the right information to get the best deals, minus the “bhaag daud”!
3. Resort Pool Sports
One of the best ways to relax yet have some fun is taking a good dip into the water, along with your family and friends! If you’re not feeling like swimming in saltwater ocean, stay right where you are and venture only a few steps to the luxurious pool right at your resort! Of course desi weddings are all about having fun! Do something a little different like our bride and groom Sandy & Sunny did at the Moon Palace, and have a game of water polo! Play girls versus boys, or the ladke wale vs. ladki wale!
You may make a few temporary enemies but you can always settle it on the dance floor at the reception, or with a friendly drink at the swim-up bar…the Hard Rock Hotel Cancun has two of those. While the Hard Rock Riviera Maya
location. has plenty of room in the pool to accommodate even the largest Indian wedding party.
4. Resort Cooking Classes
Leave the daal and roti at home! Try your hand at cooking, with group cooking classes! Learn to make a variety of dishes, and find out who’s the next Iron Chef! Ladies, this is your chance to shut the mouth of all the bhuas and chachis, that said you can’t cook, and men this is your perfect opportunity to show your woman that you’re an all-rounder, and not a couch potato! Be ready to laugh and make lifelong memories with your family and friends! For all your single guests, not only will that Mexican masala put a kick their step, but this could be the best time to hint to the cute girl or guy from the other side, that they are marriage material. Palace Resorts Weddings Sales Manager, Christine Stern has informed us, cooking classes are coming soon to The Grand at Moon Palace. And you’ll be able to use your resort credits to purchase this activity from Christine and company. (Feel free to drop us a line using any of our online forms to sign-up for updates.)
5. S’mores on the Beach
When your sweet tooth is a little tired of the gulab jamuns and rasmalai, and you’re wanting some quality time with friends and family…what better way to bring the whole gang together than with some good ole s’mores? Depending on your choice of resort, you’ll be able to gather around a warm bonfire on the beach, bring out the Hershey’s, jumbo marshmallows, and graham crackers and enjoy each other’s company under the stars! According Jack Benoff, from Vactioneeze, your family and friend fireside activities can be organized by your resort planner, travel agent, or outside vendors. And hey! Here’s another idea for you! Since you’ve got everyone together, why not play some antakshri, with all the new and old tunes you know you’ve been singin’ in the shower!
