Reminiscent of the old Mayan community, Gran Melia Cancun Resort gives you the first of its kind chance to explore the gallant new tint of timeless opulence with an ultramodern elegance. This is a 5-star beachfront retreat whose Mayan-inspired luxurious architecture soars up to the sky, but still slides into the sandy shore. Imagine staying in a pyramid of luxury and comfort and you know what this resort is all about! Well, this is really soaking as the hallmark of the Gran Melia Cancun is its five imperial pyramids adorning this agelessly tropical atmosphere amidst the Caribbean backdrop.
Not only its structure, but its location is also one of the main reasons for its popularity among the Mexican backpackers. It will only take 5 minutes for you from here to reach at the leading shopping centers, 20 minutes to be at the downtown, and 15 minutes to reach the International Airport. So, this time, why not experience a delight that reflects the Yucatan wonder coupled with high privileges?
Four magnificent pools, 9-hole golf course, luxurious rooms, and the signature YHI Spa are some of the most leisurely facilities here meant for a discerned guest in this sleek resort paradise. Other basic services include ATM/banking, concierge desk,
fitness facilities, hair salon, Internet access, dry cleaning/laundry service, medical assistance, multilingual staff, free as well as valet parking, porter, sauna, security guard, steam room, supervised child care, and tour assistance.
There are also awesome business facilities here – 24-hour front desk, audio-visual equipments, business center, banquet facilities, event catering, multiple conference/meeting rooms, and translation services.
Unlike other luxury hotels, the Gran Melia Cancun offers a long list of room types for you to choose. In all, more than 600 elegant rooms are elegantly chosen including the One Bedroom Suites, Governor Suite, Ambassador Suite, and Presidential Suite. More unique is its adult-only Red Level service offering more than 100 deluxe rooms featuring many privileges such as private lobby, own swimming pool area, whirlpool, laid-back Balinese huts, continental breakfast, afternoon snacks, reading area, butler, unlimited media, and shoe shine service.
Most of the rooms here are well equipped with the opulent bathroom, air-conditioning, direct dial phone, color plasma TV with cable, pay-per-view channels, data port, safe for laptops, and 24-hour room service. I would recommend opting for those rooms that have private terraces offering stunning vistas of the Caribbean or the Nichupte Lagoon.
The broad categories of the guestrooms are such that they are self-explanatory of what they feature. These are Deluxe Lagoon View, Deluxe Ocean View, Red level Lagoon View, Red Level Ocean View, Super Saver Room, and Royal Service.
Yhi Spa is worth an experience for its exclusively innovative treatments for purifying the body, soothing the mind, and exploring the soul. On the terrace, two pools stretching the size of the resort along with a children’s pool are very relaxing. Test your courage at its great water-sports hub, AquaWorld facilitating snorkeling, parasailing, and scuba diving in pools. For more adventures such as kayaking, sailing, and windsurfing; be at the AquaWorld’s marina just situated across the street. In the category of games, expect golf course, two tennis courts, volleyball, and a playground.
Obviously in this luxurious retreat, there cannot be only one restaurant. On the ground floor of the key pyramid, the Quetzal Restaurant is the venue of a buffet menu as well as la carte breakfast and lunch. If you are looking for good views of the ocean while dining or want to be on the terrace for the same, both are possible at the La Veranda Restaurant that specializes in international cuisine.
Are you a true gourmet? Then, I would say no other restaurant than the Ku-nah is worth for you as it is the home of several traditional dishes that offer the authentic flavors of different regions amidst its vivid artisan decor. Further, you can also enjoy the modern Mediterranean cuisine at the Tempo Restaurant boasting a stylish ambience. This is where you can also taste cheese and enjoy live music.
Try the Gran Melia Cancun’s Latin-Asian fusion at the Nami Sushi Lounge that offers snacks and international dishes. There is one more eatery called the Caribe Bar Restaurant, but is only meant for the Royal Service guests. Nestled on the shore, it is the special place to try out various sandwiches, tropical drinks, and light meals.
The rate for per person begins from Rs. 5000 here and can very well make one to spend around 12000 Rs.
This resort is also open to families and children.
