We’re on the hunt for a great honeymoon destination. During almost every conversation that we have, Cancun is mentioned. We have both been but always have a great experience. Not only is it great destination, Cancun is BOOMING. New hotels are going up left and right and let’s be real – who doesn’t want to stay in a brand new shiny hotel?
Many of the destination’s hotels are in the process of finalizing multi-million dollar renovations this summer and the upcoming winter season. Cancun has also seen a trend in rebrandings and new builds in the past few months, including family all-inclusive hotels and adults-only properties.
The Club Med Yucatan: A $14 million renovation was completed in late June. The newly-enhanced hotel includes 60 new beachfront family accommodations, two redesigned and expanded restaurants, a new Petit Club Med children’s club, and a trendy lounge.
Riu Cancun: A million dollar renovation was completed this month and will feature upgraded restaurants, pools, guest rooms and a new theater.
Dreams Sands Cancun Resort and Spa: Once the Grand Oasis Viva, this new family-friendly, all-inclusive resort will open in September and offer a special introductory rate starting at $99 per person, per night.
The Royalton Riviera Cancun: Opening this winter, the family-friendly, all-inclusive resort will offer over 1,100 luxurious suites, Royal Spa, kids club, and more.
Hyatt Ziva Cancun: Formerly the Dreams Cancun, the hotel will go through an $80 million renovation that will include 11 new pools, room upgrades, and the construction of an additional building that will increase the number of rooms from 380 to 500. Added amenities include fire pits along the boardwalk, beach butlers, and s’mores on the beach with bonfires and tents for kids. Renovations are set to conclude Fall 2015.
Zoetry Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres: Officially renamed and inaugurated on December 15, this property will offer a private marina with a 42-foot yacht that will transport guests between Cancun and Isla Mujeres, and offer luxury amenities like Bvlgari® products and Zoetry’s Endless Privileges program.
Orbitz also named Cancun 2014’s No. 1 summer destination for North Americans (both nationally and internationally). Cancun continues to grow as a world-renowned destination and has expanded its tourism offerings, officially including the smaller destinations of Puerto Morelos, Isla Mujeres, Holbox and Contoy under the Cancun brand.
