Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MIAMI — Barceló Maya Grand Resort in the Riviera Maya is slated to become one of the largest resort complexes in the area with the upcoming debut of Barceló Maya Riviera.
Scheduled to open in December 2019, the all-inclusive, adults-only property will offer 850 guestrooms with hot tubs, more than half of which will also boast ocean views, 110 Swim Up Suites and Junior Suites, four pools, five bars and five restaurants that include Mexican, French, Italian, Japanese and one buffet. The resort will also offer smart locks through the smartphone app.
Also, in May 2020, Barceló Maya Grand Resort will unveil the largest convention centre in the region, Barceló Maya Arena, a US$250 million expansion project. Upon completion, it will boast more than 190,000 square feet of customizable multi-purpose space for expos, conventions and events, not to mention a 3,500 square-foot terrace for gala receptions and an underground dining venue. Wedding planners will also want to take note of the gazebo, located near the resort’s infinity swimming pool.
“Barceló Maya Riviera is set to reshape the region’s hotel and convention offerings,” said Stefania Ballotta, Director of Sales & Marketing at Barceló Maya Grand Resort. “We can’t wait to share this new property with our valued guests and event planners.”
Barceló Maya Grand Resort currently comprises Barceló Maya Palace, Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical. For more information go to barcelo.com.
