Grupo Vidanta Resort

NUEVO VALLARTA — Grand Luxxe today announced the grand openings of two new resorts of its high-end luxury brand in the vacation destinations of Nuevo Vallarta and Riviera Maya. In a challenging environment for the hospitality industry, Grupo Vidanta demonstrates its strong faith in Mexican tourism with these two new exclusive resorts. Both locations debut an architectural philosophy that distinguishes Grand Luxxe from other brands, along with the commitment to the pinnacle of personalized service the brand has become famous for.

A world of privilege and opulence awaits the discriminating traveler which holds in high regard a resort catering to their every need; Grand Luxxe brings to market a travel experience unlike any other. Sumptuous suites and villas provide between 2,300 and 3,000 square feet of room, among the largest in the resort industry. Twelve-foot ceilings and Italian design bathroom amenities exude an air of refined magnificence.

First opening in February of 2010, Grand Luxxe in Nuevo Vallarta set the bar for personalized luxury travel with private butlers for each floor. The new tower of 144 suites became a remarkable feat for the affluent vacation segment. Spectacular lakes dot the surroundings, beckoning visitors to take advantage of the various water activities. The vast expanse of the glimmering ocean and beaches of Nuevo Vallarta are an invitation to unwind.

The new Grand Luxxe resort in Riviera Maya is every bit as decadent as its sister property in Nuevo Vallarta and is located on Mexico’s most desired coastline. The low-slung resort harmoniously blends in with the surrounding tropics. Pristine white sand beaches and cabanas with glamorous, shimmering pools, privately tucked into the landscape greet guests.

“We have been building resorts for our clients since 1976. Our guests want all of the benefits of a luxury private home with the services of a fine hotel. We have presented them with Grand Luxxe and it has surpassed our expectations in demand,” says Daniel Chavez Moran, founder and ex-President of Grupo Vidanta.

Joining the ranks of the finest vacation properties in the world, Grand Luxxe blends stunning architecture with sleek, modern interior finishes. Rooms blend richly appointed details including marble flooring, fine accents, rich wood furnishings and luxurious upholstery. Bathrooms exude an air of luxury befitting a spa and offer guests a place to unwind in the free standing tubs. Guests can enjoy the scenery of the river and mountains along with the city and the distant horizon.

Modern amenities abound including private plunge pools in the balcony, private butler service for each floor, 50-inch flat panel televisions, Wi-Fi Internet access, in-room Jacuzzi and 24-hour room service, taxi and medical service. Grand Luxxe will pamper its visitors with full health spa and fitness centers, a unique Kid’s Club camp experience and a world-class Nicklaus-design 18-hole golf course that is a delight for pros and casual players alike.

“The Riviera Maya is known around the world as an area of incredible beauty and history,” says Arturo Hernandez, Grupo Vidanta Chief Architect. “We designed Grand Luxxe’s newest location to integrate the architectural development between the rich jungle environment and distinct local Mayan culture. This experience immediately begins when you enter the interior courtyard generous with diverse flowers and plants signifying the richness of life in the regional jungle. The actual buildings become secondary to the fullness of nature.”

Grand Luxxe has been home to dignitaries who participated in the prestigious Grupo Vidanta Foundation Prize Selection Committee including Mr. Ernesto Zedillo, former President of Mexico; Mr. Cesar Gaviria, former Colombian President; Mr. Luis Maira, Chile’s ambassador to Argentina and Mexico; Mr. Carmelo Angulo, Spanish Ambassador to Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico and former representative of the UNPD in Argentina; Mrs. Billie Miller, a current member of the Barbados Labour Party and former Foreign Minister.
