Riviera Maya, Mexico (December 9, 2009) – Surrounded by ecological reserves, emerald-green jungle, and turquoise blue water, Riviera Maya is a destination where visitors can indulge in nature’s splendor.

Nestled along a pristine half-mile stretch of white sand coastline aptly named Playa Del Secreto (Secret Beach), Valentin Imperial Maya Resort offers its guests the sense of a secluded island paradise.

Opened in November 2007, Valentin Imperial Maya is the first resort developed outside of Europe by Valentin Hotels, a family-run hotel business that began in 1966 in Mallorca, Spain. The company currently owns and operates six resorts in Mallorca, two in Menorca, one in Costa de la Luz and one in Gran Canaria of the Canary Islands.

“By offering guests a high level of elegant and personalized service, Valentin Imperial Maya Resort is setting new standards of quality for all-inclusive resorts,” says Dirk Urban, General Manager Valentin Imperial Maya, “What sets Valentin apart from other hotel brands is our attention to detail and the unique ability of our staff to make guests feel comfortable and taken care of, as if they were among family.”
