The Grand Luxxe Villa Riviera Maya
The Grand Luxxe is the latest addition to the long list of resorts from Grupo Vidanta. We always felt that The Grand Mayan was out of this world… and then came the Luxxe. Wow!
It’s important to realize that these different resorts are (for the most part) all on the same grounds. At the Riviera Maya location, The Mayan Palace, The Grand Mayan, and The Grand Luxxe buildings are all within walking distance of each other. They share common restaurants and pools, along with many other amenities at the resort. However, The Grand Mayan has special areas (reception, pools, bars, etc, etc) and amenities that are not available to guests at the Mayan Palace, and the same goes for the Grand Luxxe (which of course, has even more private locations and amenities).
A nice feature of the Villa is that it can be split, creating a separate “Junior Villa” in case you’re sharing with friends (or your kids) and want a little privacy. The Junior Villa is roughly 1/3 of the total space, and includes a fridge, microwave, private balconies, etc. As you will see in the pictures, the units are truly astonishing. As far as the amenities go, there are just too many to mention here. We’ll make a complete list in another post.
When we were at the Rivera Maya location in April, the Luxxe units were not yet built (only the model), so we were happy to stay at the Grand Mayan. However, we did look around at the model, and that’s where the pictures came from.
The good news is that The Grand Luxxe Riviera Maya officially opens on November 19th, 2010. We’ll be staying there soon, and will post some pictures and experiences. (Note: The Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta has been open since February).
Finally, The Villa is so big that it can be hard to make sense of the photos. To make things a bit easier, we’ve posted a floor plan here.
