Secrets The Vine Cancun First Guests
On August 19, AMResorts Regional Director of Operations Robert Noe and General Manager Jean-Pierre Sorin join Mr. and Mrs. Stearns in celebrating the resort’s official opening.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – August 20, 2012 – AMResorts, provider of sales, marketing and brand management services for Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, and Secrets, Dreams, Now and Sunscape Resorts & Spas, celebrated the official opening of the adults-only Secrets The Vine Cancun on August 19, 2012. The introduction of wine-inspired Secrets The Vine Cancun, AMResorts’ 21st property in Mexico, represents the Secrets brand’s entry into Cancun’s Hotel Zone.

Secrets The Vine Cancun’s General Manager Jean-Pierre Sorin and his staff welcomed the resort’s first guests Tom and Maria Stearns with a mariachi band, a ribbon cutting ceremony and champagne toast. To commemorate the occasion, the couple received a five-night return stay certificate to the Unlimited-Luxury® resort.

Designed by the award-winning Rockwell Group, Secrets The Vine Cancun features 495 chic guest rooms designed as a personal retreat with signature design elements including: Private balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Laguna Nichupte, Italian porcelain floors polished to mimic wood, custom covered headboards and teak wood furnishings, luxury linens and Rockwell Group-designed APF mirrors and white glass wrapped bathrooms.

Upon entering the sparkling, elegant and bold Secrets The Vine, guests will instantly take note of the Mayan culture and Yucatan Peninsula design influences. For example, the concierge area, envisioned as a smoking room, mixes traditional hacienda and contemporary style furniture.

The Secrets The Vine’s signature design also celebrates fine wine, starting with its lobby which houses The Vine Bar, a designated wine tasting area for guests, featuring a wine wall with nearly 3,000 varieties. There, guests can enjoy sommelier-led tastings hosted at the locally handcrafted wood table with seating for up to 14 guests. A Vine Bazaar completes the wine-centric experience. This area of the resort offers a variety of relaxing spaces including The Vine Café, The Vine Bar & The Lounge, Terrace, and The Library, which was designed to recall the ancient Mexican tradition of storytelling.

Local cenote formations influenced the design, treatment selection and hydrotherapy circuit at the 12,580 square-feet Secrets Spa by Pevonia. The spa’s main lounge or Cenote Room, recreates the effect of natural cenotes with a three feet deep plunge pool forming the floor with backlit nooks throughout to emulate the beams of sunlight peeking through rock formations. The spa also features a Jacuzzi, steam room, glass pool, and fitness center with ocean views.

Secrets The Vine provides the perfect romantic setting for couples with many special amenities and wedding, honeymoon and anniversary packages. The variety of meeting areas, including 17,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space overlooking the Nichupté lagoon, is ideal for group meetings and incentive travelers.
