BrunchMas Mas Maya Brunch: Five Reasons To Try It Out

Words by Tom Billinghurst

Mexican brunches don’t get more lively than the Mas Mas Maya Brunch at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort + Spa

In the mood for good Mexican food, live music and more sass than Lady Gaga’s outfits? Sure you are. Who isn’t. In that case, here’s five reasons you need to give the Mas Mas Maya Brunch everything you have on a Friday afternoon.

  • The Music

All music is better when it’s live. It’s the law. And the three-piece Mexican band that are on hand, lilting away in the background (from your table) and in the centre of the starters station (including gorgeously creamy guacamole and ceviche) provide an upbeat atmosphere throughout the opening exchanges of the brunch. Such is the Latino spirit evoked at the start, the vibe lingers and paints the rest of the day in that sensual mirth that moves your hips – even if you don’t want them to – that only Latin music has the ability to affect.

  • The All-Day Pool Access

One thing that is usually missing from a brunch is the means to quickly throw oneself into cool refreshing pool to then come back and power on. Or after the brunch is over for that matter. But the Mas Mas Maya Brunch has you covered (in chlorine-infused water) here, with the all-day pool access to Le Royal Meridien’s pools. Bombs away.

  • The Lobster

Buttery, creamy and moreish. Beautifully balanced with the basil and dill seasoning; and all the better for the fact that it’s cooked fresh and brought to table rather than the clamorous surge that you get at buffet brunches where gourmet delights like lobster can go quickly downhill after they’ve been sitting there untouched for hours on end. Also, a quick nod to the sizzling fajitas – the beef is supple, moist and delicious. It wouldn’t be a Mexican feast without them.

  • The Sombrero Snap

A chirpy chap clad in his poncho and sombrero comes round to the tables near the start of your brunch, with a mobile tray full of green, yellow and red Mexican beverages and extends a challenge your way: see off two and he’ll give you two bonus drinks. But this isn’t the cool part. He’ll then give you a rental sombrero (this sounds more unhygienic than it actually is) for a quick snap. Got to be done. Because everyone want that Gram pic, don’t they.

  • The Structure

You grab your starters from the terrace. Mains are brought to your table. And dessert has it’s own indoor alcove. Sounds simple, but it’s wonderfully effective. The table service for the mains gives you the relaxed and indulgent vibe of being in a seated restaurant, which you don’t otherwise get at the free-for-all buffet brunches that we, being men of discerning taste, tend to avoid.
