PALLADIUM HOTEL GROUP SET TO OPEN TWO NEW LUXURY PROPERTIES IN MEXICO
Palladium Hotel Group is about to grow its portfolio of luxury five-star accommodation with the opening of a brand-new development to the northeast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
The five-star family-friendly property, Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa, and the adults-only TRS Coral Hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, will open on 1 November 2018, adding a new proposition to the almost untouched region of Costa Mujeres, just 20 minutes from Cancun’s airport.
The hotels’ location in the beautiful area of Costa Mujeres, said to be one of the hidden treasures of Mexico, allows guests to discover pristine beaches with crystal clear water, vibrant coral reefs and sandy white shores, surrounded by thriving natural reserves full of flora and fauna. While this is a completely brand new development, Palladium Hotel Group has maintained its ethos of sustainable tourism, executing extensive environmental studies to ensure minimal impact on the land, while maintaining the highest standard of quality at the properties.
The 673-room Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa provides a five-star Mexican oasis ideal for the whole family, with services, facilities and an entertainment programme to suit all holiday wishes. Each room boasts a balcony or terrace overlooking the impressive views of the resort and out to sea. Some rooms include premium features like direct access ‘swim-up’ pools or hydro-massage hot tubs on their private balconies.
Part of ‘Leading Hotels of the World’, TRS Coral Hotel, a 473-room adults-only property, offers guests a more exclusive and tranquil setting to rejuvenate and escape. Guests have access to all facilities at Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa and ‘The Village’, where they are offered unlimited and preferential access.
Both resorts feature a wide culinary and leisure offering set around ‘The Village’ that links the two hotels along with shops, bars and recreation areas. The 14 restaurants across the resort offer flavours and styles from around the world and include a wide variety of show cooking, à la carte menus and live entertainment.
Guests of Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa have access to nine top-quality restaurants, suitable for the whole family. Portofino (Italian), Chang Thai (Thai), Sumptuori (Japanese) and Boghali (Indian) transport guests to faraway lands, while La Adelita features authentic Mexican flavours with local and regional specialities. El Dorado is the resort’s à la carte steakhouse and Grand Palladium serves international dishes and show-cooking.
Guests at the adults-only TRS Coral Hotel have a further five à la carte restaurants from which to choose, so they can take advantage of the exclusive ‘Dine Around’ concept during their stay, elevating the ‘all-inclusive’ concept Infinite Indulgence© to a new level. These include the elegant La Bohème, exuding the feel of a Parisian bistro with French gastronomy; Tapeo, with tapas and other traditional Spanish dishes, Argentinean barbecue El Gaucho, and Capricho serving breakfast and lunch with à la carte dishes and show cooking.
In homage to Palladium Hotel Group’s roots in Ibiza, each hotel features a beach club – the Poseidon Beach Club at Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa, and Helios Beach Club, exclusive to TRS Coral Hotel guests.
Set to be unmissable, Chic Cabaret & Restaurant is an exquisite multiple-course dinner, enjoyed while absorbing breath-taking acrobatics, stunning choreography and music from all genres. The concept launched further down the coast at TRS Yucatan Hotel in the Riviera Maya in November 2017 and ranks among the top three on TripAdvisor out of more than 1,000 restaurants in Mexico’s Playa del Carmen.
The resort offers a varied range of experiences, with activities such as snorkelling, diving, yoga and pilates, live music shows at the open-air amphitheatre, three kids clubs, various swimming pools, including a kids pool and two exclusive to TRS Coral Hotel guests, as well as the thermal water circuits and treatments at the world-class 51,020 ft2 Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness centre.
Guests at TRS Coral Hotel and Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa, as well as visitors and residents in the surrounding area, can also enjoy tennis programmes for all levels and ages at the impressive Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre located in the resort area. Exclusively created by Rafa Nadal and his technical team and encompassing his personal values, strategic and physical preparation, and mental training, the programmes on offer include private classes, a weekly tennis camp or a three-day tennis break.
The sports centre features eight flood-lit clay tennis courts, a football pitch, one paddle court, a gym for warm-ups, stretches and basic training, a Rafa Nadal exhibition, a premium sports shop, and a bar/cafeteria with TV screens so guests can watch tennis and other sports.
For the MICE industry, an impressive 16,000 ft2 convention centre with capacity for 1,380 people is situated on the edge of the resort and caters for all types of meetings, conferences and events. The breathtaking sea views and white sand setting also provide the perfect backdrop for those looking for an exotic wedding in Caribbean-style, however big or small. The hotel has a Catholic chapel and has different Palladium weddings packages with various options for the ceremony decorations, menus, flowers and wedding cake that are taken care of by Palladium Hotel Group’s on-site wedding experts.
Palladium Hotel Group’s new Family Selection programme is available at Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa, which offers families an elevated holiday experience through premium services and facilities such as an entertainment lounge with board games, computers and video games, a reserved area on the beach with waiter service and a family host as their point of contact throughout their stay. Those guests that choose the Family Selection programme will be accommodated in a special beachfront area of the hotel with a separate lobby, and family suites with mini bathrobes and slippers, cookies and milk turndown service, a personalised mini-bar with special drinks and in-room video games upon request.
Parents on the Family Selection programme also have access to the exclusive services and facilities at TRS Coral Hotel including the à la carte restaurants and complimentary access to Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness.
These two new properties are one of Mexico’s most significant openings this year and mark an exciting new period for the Spanish-owned hotel group.
