Dec. 15, 2019 opening date for Barcelo Maya Riviera

TORONTO — The new adults-only, all-suite (and all-inclusive) Barceló Maya Riviera will open Dec. 15, 2019.

Barceló Hotel Group confirmed the opening date yesterday.

The latest addition to the Barceló Maya Grand Resort complex, the new resort joins Barceló Maya Palace, Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical.

In December, the resort complex will also unveil Barceló Maya Arena, the largest convention center and meetings inventory in the region. A combined investment of US$250 million dollars has been allocated to this expansion project.


“We’re thrilled to be opening our new adults-only property in Riviera Maya this winter,” says 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.”

Barceló Maya Riviera is home to 850 exclusive and sophisticated rooms, all of which are Junior Suites or Suites – and more than half of them have ocean views. With more than a hundred swim-up suites, the new property will also feature hot tubs in 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 offer a diverse array of cuisine, including Mexican (with a ‘Tacoyaki’ bar), French fine dining, Italian, and Japanese (including 10 Teppanyaki tables and one Robatayaki table for fireside cooking), plus a buffet restaurant with international cuisine available during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can also get cocktails, wine, beer and appetizers at one of five bars, including a poolside bar and a lobby bar.

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, including 22 restaurants, 10 pools, three theatres, three water parks, a bowling alley – and the new Ventura Fly & Ride Park, featuring thrilling rides and experiences.

The new Barceló Maya Arena convention centre is poised to become Riviera Maya’s best meetings and events venue. With a capacity to host up to 8,000 attendees, it will offer more than 190,000 square feet of customizable multi-purpose space for expos, conventions and events. There’s also a 3,400 square foot terrace. For wedding planners, beach receptions at Playa Azul will be of special note thanks to the ocean views.
