Shiny and New
What’s better than finally using those rolled-over vacations days to take off for a week or 10 days and go globetrotting? Well, maybe booking that dream getaway to the tropics would make such a trip even more enjoyable. After all, wouldn’t sipping an umbrella drink, with sand in between your toes and waves gently caressing your sunbaked torso as you sprawl out on a pristine white beach, be better? Surely, there can be nothing better than that. Could there be?
Well yes. There is. Imagine taking that same idyllic vacation to Mexico staying in the newest and most luxurious resort in town. Now that would be hard to top.
This year that dream scenario has two possible destinations, Cancun and Los Cabos. Palace Resorts is introducing two properties to its already impressive stable of high-end, all-inclusive resorts.
The Grandeur of The Grand
Those familiar with the luxury and attention to detail at Moon Palace Cancun would have a hard time quantifying something on an even grander scare. Somehow, The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun, true to its name, provides all that devotees of the all-inclusive, luxury result brand have come to expect, and more.
Situated directly adjacent to Moon Palace Cancun and billed as a “resort within a resort,” The Grand represents close to a half-a-billion dollar investment for Palace Resorts into what is going to be its flagship and top-of-the-line luxury property.
Here’s a break down of the new digs: The Grand boasts 1,316 rooms, including 95 family deluxe suites and 34 swim-up suites (as in, swim up to your room, sweet!); 10 restaurants which take you on a veritable world tour of delicacies (Italian, French, Lebanese and, of course, Mexican restaurants are among the fray); 7 bars and an additional 5 swim up bars; 9 outdoor pools, including an Olympic pool, Half-Moon pool and two adults pools; and a 76,000 sq. ft. Awe Spa with 64 spa suites. Oh, and add a water park, just for kicks.
Los Cabos Meets Le Blanc
The Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun is widely considered the crème de la crème of high-end resorts in the entire hotel zone – it has been repeatedly designated as Cancun’s #1 all-inclusive resort by the TripAdvisor® community. Now, take that resort, lift it up, and transport it to a destination that has long been synonymous with luxury resort life, Cabo San Lucas. What do you get? Easy enough, Le Blanc Spa Resort, Los Cabos. If it sounds ritzy, it’s because it surely will be.
Palace Resorts Goes Pacific
Palace Resorts’ first venture on the Pacific Coast, the property was designed to impress and isn’t likely to disappoint. It will feature a grandiose entrance, with 373 luxury beachfront rooms – all over 760 sq. ft. The adults-only resort will also have seven restaurants – everything from Italian to Asian Fusion to pizza and seafood – as well as six bars and extensive wine and beverage options. As Le Blanc guests are no doubt used to, there will be 24-hour butler service and a 29,000 sq. ft. full service spa with 25 treatment rooms and a hydrotherapy facility.
