If we had to describe the Riviera Maya’s newest all-suite, all-inclusive resort, Barceló Maya Riviera, in just one word it would be this: perfect. Opening in December 2019, this adults-only property provides the home base for all kinds of adventures. Here’s why Barceló Maya Riviera (part of the Barceló Maya Grand Resort) is the perfect Mexican Caribbean escape.
The perfect location
Barceló Maya Riviera is easy to get to. The resort is just 47 miles from Cancun International Airport and 12 miles from Playa del Carmen – you’ll be here before you know it. The resort is located near the main tourist attractions in the area, including Playa del Carmen’s famed 5th Avenue (La Quinta Avenida), the Mayan ruins of Tulum, crystal clear cenotes and much more. When you’re here, the best of the Riviera Maya is always within reach.
The perfect beach
Barceló Maya Riviera is located on one Mexico’s most beautiful beaches. Here, you’ll find pristine white sands, sparkling waters and gentle ocean breezes. The beach is perfect for relaxation and sunbathing, of course (pack your sunscreen!). But it’s also the launchpad for countless aquatic adventures. Scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding, kitesurfing, flyboarding, kayaking, fishing … every one of these on-the-water activities (and more!) is easily accessible at Barceló Maya Riviera.
- Good to know: Barceló Maya Grand Resort offers PADI certification classes if you’re a first-time scuba diver. You’ll be discovering the world underneath the waves in no time.
The perfect adults-only experience
No kids allowed! Barceló Maya Riviera is a place just for grown-ups. And that means plenty of grown-up fun. Cool off in one of four outdoor pools – or just look effortlessly cool poolside, a margarita in-hand. Find privacy in one of 850 exclusive and stylish rooms, all of which are Junior Suites or Suites. Spectacular views are easy to find here – more than half of the rooms boast Caribbean Sea panoramas, and more than 100 of the rooms have swim-up access. Relax on your terrace hot tub at sunset, enjoying the gentle tropical breeze and the romance of a Mexican Caribbean evening.
The perfect place for some thrills
Indulge the kid inside on your adults-only Mexican Caribbean vacation. Located inside the Barceló Grand Maya Resort, the brand-new Ventura Fly & Ride Park offers thrilling attractions and experiences. It’s made up of two equally awesome areas: Ventura Fly and Ventura Ride. For some high-flying excitement, try the Plane Coaster, a roller coaster zooms around the circuit at high speeds, and offers stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and the Mayan Jungle. If that’s not enough, try the park’s seven-cable zip-line circuit. You’ll feel like a bird soaring through the sky. Ventura Ride, meanwhile, lets you zip around on Off Road Polaris Ace Vehicles. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll love Ventura Fly & Ride Park.
The perfect dining options
Barceló Maya Riviera’s eating options have something for everyone. The resorts’s specialty restaurants will offer a diverse array of cuisine. There’s classic Mexican cuisine. There’s French fine dining if you want to get all dressed up for a romantic date night. There’s classic Italian dishes, with views of the Caribbean complementing the flavors. There’s Japanese, including 10 Tepanyaki tables and one Robatayaki table for fireside cooking. Guests will also enjoy cocktails, wine, beer and appetizers at one of five bars, including a refreshing poolside bar and an exceptional lobby bar. Plus, guests will have access to an additional 22 restaurants and 19 bars located throughout the Barceló Grand Maya Resort. And of course, you’ll be near to some great Riviera Maya restaurants as well, where you can sample authentic Mexican food and drink. One thing’s for sure – you won’t go hungry during your Barceló Maya Riviera getaway!
The perfect place to relax and unwind
The U-Spa Wellness & Fitness Center (located in the Barceló Maya Grand Resort) is a state-of-the-art wellness destination. Indulge in two sauna and steam rooms. Restore in the tropical and bi-thermal showers. Find your inner peace in an immersion pool. And treat yourself to one (or two!) of the many massages, facials and other wellness treatments on the menu.
The perfect events venue
The new Barceló Maya Arena convention center is poised to become one of Riviera Maya’s best (and largest) meetings and events venues. With a capacity to host up to 8,000 attendees, it will offer more than 190,000 square feet of customizable multi-purpose space for expos, conventions and events. For gala receptions with stunning views and fresh air, events planners will love the 3,400 square feet terrace. In the lower level dining venue, attendees will enjoy exceptional food and ambiance. For wedding planners, beach receptions at Playa Azul will be of special note due to the stunning ocean views, offering the chance for a truly spectacular ceremony.
The December opening of Barceló Maya Riviera is right around the corner – and there’s still time to be one of this fantastic new resort’s first guests. Start planning now. We’ll see you soon!
