Designed to redefine all-inclusive resorts as places of true luxury, Grand Velas Riviera Maya has earned all sorts of industry awards for its sophistication and service. Instead of buffets, the restaurants serve gourmet dinners prepared by chefs from France, Spain and Mexico, and the rooms are stylish in design and massive in space. The premium oceanfront Grand Class Suites are the most romantic of the 491 accommodations and feature plunge pools on their terraces, while the ocean-view Ambassador Suites are family friendly and the Zen Grand Suites are situated close to the conference facilities. All rooms have big windows and breezy tropical vibes with splashes of Yucatan color in bed runners and throw pillows. Best of all, they all come with dedicated butler service.
In the Area
The resort is just five minutes from downtown Playa del Carmen, a charming colonial town filled with galleries and boutiques. Nearby Xel-Ha Park is known as the world’s largest aquarium, with an array of lagoons, inlets and cenotes (freshwater swimming holes) at the mouth of the largest underground river in the world.
