The Fodor’s Travel Blog covered the opening of the Paradisus Cancun Resort Dec. 1, which marks the fifth hotel for the brand. The all-inclusive luxury resort boasts more than 675 rooms and a multi-pyramid architectural design that neatly ties in the region’s Mayan heritage.
The resort’s main restaurant, Tempo,is headed by Michelin Star chef Martín Berasategui and features eclectic, contemporary fare such as Perigueaux sauce and truffle, or hot foie-gras with minestrone-stuffed zitone pasta and teriyaki reduction. The Paradisus Cancun also boasts five other restaurants, including casual buffet and pub-style options, as well as five traditional bars and four swim-up bars. Other amenities include the YH1 Spa and Health Club, tennis courts and a nine-hole, par-3 golf course.
Accommodations are spacious and provide enough room for small groups to relax or enjoy an in-room breakfast. Family Concierge suites are also available and come with access to an Internet lounge and snack buffet. Families with children can also take advantage of the property’s Kids Club, which has countless ways to entertain the little ones while mom and dad relax.
Travelers who are looking for the ultimate luxury experience will enjoy the Paradisus Cancun’s Royal Service suites, which come with a private butler, daily breakfast buffet, newspaper delivery and snacks. Both the Family Concierge and the Royal Service suites also come with a free meal at Tempo, which would otherwise carry a surcharge.
Bookings that are made between now and Dec. 22, or for a visit between Jan. 10 through March 21, 2013 will receive a special rate of $140 per night per person, as long as the reservations are made by Feb. 28.
Other Paradisus properties nearby include the Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Esmerelda and the Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla, which are located in the Riviera Maya region, just to the south of Cancun real estate in the booming town of Playa del Carmen. Both of the Playa properties opened in November of 2012.
