This photoshoot was held on the beach of Azul Fives. This was taken the day after the wedding of Reem and Jay.
Azul Fives by Karisma is an enormous all-inclusive luxury retreat located in Playa del Carmen, a 20-minute drive north of the main drag of 5th Avenue. The 480-unit property caters to families, and offers bright, modern rooms plus large suites with kitchenettes and up to three bedrooms. Amenities here are extensive and include a spa, all sorts of activities, clubs, play areas for children, and a ton of adult-friendly activities ranging from archery to rock climbing. The dining options are equally impressive, with cuisine from around the world; there are optional all-inclusive rates. While it’s a good place for families looking for a fly-and-flop experience, the Azul’s gargantuan size can make it feel impersonal and those without kids might find it a bit rowdy. Couples wanting something a bit more intimate may want to consider the adult-only Blue Diamond Riviera Maya by BlueBay instead.
