MIAMI — The newly renovated Bahia Principe Grand Tulum has officially reopened its doors following a US$40 million renovation.
Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts’ flagship property in Mexico, which first debuted over 20 years ago, started welcoming back guests on Nov. 15. Located 60 minutes from the Cancun International Airport and just 20 minutes from Tulum’s Mayan ruins, Bahia Principe Grand Tulum has been completely transformed to emphasize its Mayan origin, a massive renovation that the brand describes as a major milestone during this time.
“Despite it being a very difficult with many setbacks, we are very proud to open this resort as planned,” said Lluisa Salord, SVP Global Sales, Contracting & Distribution. “The entire team has put a lot of love and dedication into this project to appropriately showcase its Mayan legacy that can be experienced throughout the resort, linked to our Origin concept.”
Here are some highlights of the newly renovated property:
As part of the company’s commitment to contribute to local communities and the environment, resources were also dedicated to the Integrated Coastal Management Plan. This project has five main pillars: improve the state of the beaches, achieve better management of resources, promote the conservation of biodiversity, enhance the sustainable management of the landscape, and promote environmental awareness and education. In Mexico, the focus is on the recovery of the hydrodynamic balance of the bay, the restoration of the dune strip, and the management of access and uses of the coastal area.
Bahia Principe Grand Tulum has reopened with the company’s rigorous safety and hygiene measures in place, which were developed in collaboration with HS Consulting, an international consulting company that specializes in the tourism industry.
