As Cancun and the adjacent Riviera Maya region of Mexico attract a continual flow of investments and new visitors,three more big hotels and resorts in the Mexican Caribbean have been featured by major international news organizations such as TravelPulse and the Mirror Online. Specifically,the Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort,the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya and the Grand Velas Riviera Maya,have received special attention in 2015 for their outstanding services,exquisite locations and all-around amazing accommodations.
Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort,Cancun
The ultra-luxe Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort is a five-star property that is located just outside of downtown Cancun,on Mexico’s stunning Yucatan Peninsula overlooking the Caribbean Sea. This summer the resort was featured by the Mirror Online,when a travel writer Ann Gripper visited the property to get the inside scoop on what a holiday in Cancun looks like firsthand.
“Getting there had been so stress-free it was hardly surprising,” writes Gripper. “A breakfast stop in Virgin’s V-Lounge at London-Gatwick made for a relaxing start to the 11-hour flight. And with Moon Palace just a 20-minute drive from Cancun airport,the transfer could hardly be shorter.”
The marble lobby,rooms with double whirlpool bathtubs and stunning views of the Caribbean Sea are just a small part of what makes this resort so spectacular. The property extends organically along the shore and is divided into three connected sections that each boast their own unique atmosphere and separate pool area. The Sunrise area is ideal for families due to its oversized children’s pool area,Nizuc also features a water slide and a variety of pool games,while the area known as The Grand is ideal for adults and couples who are seeking a quieter,more relaxed experience.
“The extent of the all-inclusive offering is impressive,with champagne and room service at no extra charge,” writes Gripper for the Mirror Online.
Other amenities at the Moon Palace include a stunning expanse of white-sand beach,14 restaurants,a varied room service menu,a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course,a spa and easy access to off-site excursions,as well as transportation to and from the hotel.
Blue Diamond Riviera Maya
Situated just 40 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport and just 10 minutes north of Playa del Carmen,the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya is a chic,all inclusive adults-only resort featuring oriental design details and 36 acres of tropical jungle,well-manicured gardens and palm-lined white sandy beaches framing the breathtaking Caribbean Sea. The property is even home to its very own cenote,which is a type of underground freshwater sinkhole connected to a subterranean river that can be found throughout the Riviera Maya region.
The temezcal spa experience at the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya was featured in TravelPulse this summer,thanks to its growing popularity among international travelers and locals alike. The traditional Mexican steam bath,or temezcal,is reportedly gaining acclaim for its ability to stimulate circulation,increase the heart rate and encourage introspection. As an added perk,the Blue Diamond Riviera Maya provides every guest with a free temezcal experience,offering both individual and group experiences.
“Along with the pre-Hispanic ruins,the Caribbean Sea and perfect climate,the Mexican tradition of temazcal,steam baths symbolizing gestation in the womb,is still alive and harvesting crowds of supporters in Mexico and around the world,” TravelPulse reported. “Muscle tension,insomnia,liver and circulatory problems as well as acne are some of the ailments that this therapy helps to improve.”
The Blue Diamond Riviera Maya also features spectacular beachfront casitas,chic rooftop bars,private docks,rooftop infinity pools and floor-to-ceiling windows in each suite. In addition to the temezcal classes,the lengthy list of complimentary activities includes wine tastings,cooking classes,Spanish classes,yoga classes,horseback riding,helicopter excursions,windsurfing,kayaking,sailing and scuba diving or snorkeling tours.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya
Located five minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen and just 35 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport,the Grand Velas Riviera Maya is one of the region’s best all-inclusive resorts along the Caribbean Sea. The AAA Five Diamond property offers private butler service,kayaking,scuba diving and a Kid’s Club,as well as an amazing spa,eight renowned restaurants and beautifully manicured grounds.
“Grand Velas Riviera Maya has acquired a legion of awards and certifications including TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame Award,” writes TravelPulse. “If this is not enough to lure guests in,Grand Velas Riviera Maya offers a world-class spa,named “Best Spa In The World by Virtuoso in 2010.”
