Personalized Concierge Service

At Grand Velas Riviera Maya, you have a 24-hour Personal Concierge to assist you throughout your trip. Need a dinner reservation or a spa appointment? Done. Forgot something at home? They’ll help you out. One of our clients was traveling with an infant, and their concierge arranged for everything they could possibly need, from a bottle warmer to a highchair.

All-Suite Resort

Forget tiny hotel rooms. Grand Velas Rivera Maya is an all-suite resort where even the entry-level room is over 1000 square feet. The resort is divided into three sections, and each section boasts luxurious suites.

  • Grand Class Experience: the adult-only area (16 years +) where rooms have oceanfront views, private plunge pools, and more.
  • Ambassador Experience: family-friendly area with suites situated around the main pool and near the Kids’ and Teens’ Clubs.
  • Zen Grand Experience: find seclusion and total relaxation while immersed in the Mayan Jungle.

Haute Cuisine

If all-inclusive makes you think buffets and long lines, think again! At Grand Velas Riviera Maya you can experience the best gastronomy at their specialty restaurants or chef’s table plus enjoy wine, tequila, and mezcal tastings.

SE Spa

The SE Spa isn’t just something to do on property; it is something to experience.
