Located 23 miles from Cancun International Airport and buried deep in the jungle, the Grand Luxxe Riviera Maya boasts mangrove, flora and fauna, a coral reef and high Ceibas trees.

“The new villas and suites at Riviera Maya are a welcome addition to an extremely popular international destination,” says Eric DuBaele, director of hotel operations at Grupo Vidanta.

At the Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta, the Grand Luxxe Tower III opened on November 11. The new tower offers excellent views over the Nuevo Vallarta resort grounds and the ocean, with a vantage towards the heart of Puerto Vallarta.

November 11 also saw the opening at the Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta of the Grand Luxxe Tower Punta, which is located on the edge of the Ameca river, steps from the beach. Surrounding the tower is a private lake that leads to the infinity pool and the lower beach deck, which has a choice of four Jacuzzis and a view of Banderas Bay as the backdrop.

“Nuevo Vallarta has seen tremendous demand as travelers flock to its appealing combination of sun, sand and proximity to the small town charm of Puerto Vallarta,” remarks DuBaele. “The two new Grand Luxxe towers expand capacity and ensure greater choice and flexibility for our clients.”

Both expansions also feature ‘The Burger Custom Made’, a restaurant concept blending the familiarity of the burger with the gourmet offerings of Kobe beef, foie gras, crab, seared tuna and duck; burgers are accompanied by side dishes such as red wine confit onions, wild mushrooms and blue cheese.

Amenities in Grand Luxxe Suites include private plunge pools on the balcony, private butler service for each floor, 50-inch flat panel televisions, Wi-Fi Internet access, Blu-ray players, in-room Jacuzzi and 24-hour room service, personalized transportation and medical service.
