Opened in 2008, the luxurious All Inclusive Luxury Resort Grand Velas Riviera Maya is one of the newest resorts to distinguish Riviera Maya as a premier vacation destination.
The uniquely Mexican world-class hospitality we provide is "Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond All Compare", and we are proud to be the only family-friendly All Inclusive resort in the Mexican Caribbean to have been rated Five Diamonds by the AAA.
Set on over 80 acres of protected mangroves, jungle and natural freshwater wells locally known as cenotes, Grand Velas enjoys over 1,000 feet of pristine white sand beach that we carefully preserve. Diverse luxury accommodation options include uniquely exotic garden suites, oceanview suites around the central infinity pool, and oceanfront suites for guests age 12 and up with private plunge pools overlooking the azure Mexican Caribbean.
The only resort in the area to offer a culinary tour, our restaurants span the globe in eight venues including our internationally-acclaimed Cocina de Autor signature restaurant. The resort Spa offers guests 75,000 square feet of space dedicated to balancing body and soul, with a revolutionary hydrotherapy circuit and avant-garde menu of treatments inspired by the ancient healing practices of Mexico and distinct world cultures.
Personalized butler concierge services, a cutting edge convention center, modern Kids Club and so much more make Grand Velas Riviera Maya the ultimate resort for leisure and business travelers. Hugging the Riviera Maya coastline, this luxury resort is just 5 minutes from downtown Playa Del Carmen and a short 35-minute drive from Cancun International Airport.
