Barceló Hotel Group Set to Open Barceló Maya Riviera

The new adults-only property in the Riviera Maya will add to an impressive resort complex and meetings, events and conferences location with a new resort and new conference center opening in December

Barceló Hotel Group is opening the all-inclusive Barceló Maya Riviera, a new adults-only, all-suite resort in Mexico’s spectacular Riviera Maya in December. It’s to be the latest addition to the formidable Barceló Maya Grand Resort complex that includes Barceló Maya Palace, Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical and adds to the combined $250 million investment Barceló Hotel Group has made for this project. The resort complex will also unveil Barceló Maya Arena, the largest convention center and meetings inventory in the region, in December.

The new Barceló Maya Arena convention center is designed to become Riviera Maya’s top meetings and events venue, a capacity to host up to 8,000 attendees in 190,000 square feet of customizable multi-purpose space for expos, conventions and events.

Gala receptions get stunning views in open air spaces, especially the 3,400-square-foot terrace. Beach receptions are on the menu at Playa Azul with its wide ocean views and beachfront function capabilities.

Barceló Maya Riviera resort is home to 850 Junior Suites or Suites – more than half of them with ocean views. For leisure and bleisure-minded guests there are more than 100 swim-up suites, not to mention hot tubs on all guestroom balconies, minibars with free daily refills of snacks and drinks, and double or super king-sized beds.

The resort’s specialty restaurants will include Mexican (with a “Tacoyaki” bar), French fine dining, Italian, and Japanese (including 10 Teppanyaki tables and one Robatayaki table for fireside cooking), not to mention a buffet restaurant with international cuisine available during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests will find cocktails, wine, beer and appetizers amid five bars, including a refreshing poolside bar and a lobby bar.

Additionally, guests who stay at the Barceló Maya Riviera can take advantage of everything on offer at the other five resorts within Barceló Maya Grand Resort. That’s 22 restaurants, 10 pools, three theatres, three water parks, a bowling alley – and the new Ventura Fly & Ride Park, featuring thrilling rides and experiences.

“We’re thrilled to be opening our new adults-only property in Riviera Maya this winter,” said Stefania Ballotta, Director of Sales & Marketing at Barceló Maya Grand Resort. “Fun, luxury and relaxation will all be easily within reach here – and we can’t wait to welcome our first guests.”
