Luxe AccommodAtions Sitting on the edge of a tropical jungle, the oceanfront Grand Velas is a modern take on Mayan architecture, visually stunning and super luxe, yet downright cozy. Right down to the rooms, which have private terrace plunge pools and custom-commissioned artwork by local master artisans. GouRmet dininG With drool-worthy meals ranging from classic Mayan to fine French cuisine to fresh Asian fusion, chances are you’ll be instagramming #nomnomnom quite often. When it comes to great food, Grand Velas stands head and shoulders above its competition. Each of its 15 restaurants features fresh and inventive food in a variety of styles, including the recently opened Cocina de Autor, a gastronomy restaurant unique in the Yucatan. excePtionAL seRVice The cornerstone of any luxury resort is service, and Riviera Maya sets a high bar with its custom-tailored, proactive approach. Pushing aside traditional setups, Grand Velas treats all guests with the same top level of service. In other words, no wristbands or hairy-man contests here. From the 24-hour full-menu, in-suite dining to dedicated butler/concierge service, there is a will and ability to meet your every need, from private guided excursions to a partner for beach volleyball.

Combining this with specialty bars and entertainment venues, children’s activity programs, sports equipment, sail boats and state-of-the-art fitness facilities, Grand Velas has everything you need to satisfy your body, mind and soul.
