THURSDAY – APRIL 2, 2009 – Puerto Morelos, Rivera Maya, Mexico powdered sand beaches, the warm Caribbean sun, artfully designed furnishings, an aromatherapy spa and stunning guest rooms all mingle together to create the perfect rejuvenating Caribbean vacation. And, letÂ’s not forget the gourmet food to be savored, enjoyed and remembered. With Ceiba del MarÂ’s Luxury Gourmet Plan, leave the cooking to the gourmet chefs so you can relax amid the luxurious ambiance and elegance of a five-star, award-winning resort.

Nestled between gorgeous countryside and calming Caribbean waters, Ceiba del Mar Beach & Spa Resort sits on edge of a quaint fishing village just 20 minutes from Cancun airport. The resort boasts two fabulous restaurants that offer an exquisite blend of traditional and creative Mexican cuisine with Mediterranean influence. Xtabay offers a splendid breakfast with a wide variety of choices as well as dinner that features extraordinary cuisine with a Mexican touch. Dine with a view of calming ocean waters at the Arrecife Grill & Lounge, which serves seasonal salads, pasta, rice and meats as well as pizzas from a wood-burning oven. The Sushi Lounge, a third dining option available from 6pm -11pm, is the perfect place for guests in search of a lighter dinner with, perhaps, an exotic cucumber martini al fresco.

The Bar del Tequila also offers an ample selection of tequilas, imported beers, typical Mexican drinks and mouthwatering appetizers and sandwiches. During your stay, donÂ’t forget to try the poolside bar, stocked with exotic juices and tequilas, while taking a dip in one of the resortÂ’s two outdoor swimming pools.

The Luxury Gourmet Plan includes all a la carte meals, snacks and premium beverages in restaurants and bars. (Room service and minibar is not included.)  From April 1 through June 30, the plan starts at $398 per room, per night. (Taxes are already included in these prices.) The Luxury Gourmet Plan can also be added to other packages the resort offers, such as the Mayan Heritage Experience or the Pampering Mom Experience.

Designed with your comfort and relaxation in mind, Ceiba’s rooms and accommodations blend beautiful Mayan and Mexican architecture with stylish furnishings built using fine woods and materials by local craftsman.
