Exclusive adults-only Barcelo Maya Riviera set to open in Dec. 2019

MIAMI — Already offering Barceló Maya Palace, Barceló Maya Beach, Barceló Maya Caribe, Barceló Maya Colonial and Barceló Maya Tropical, in December 2019 one of Riviera Maya’s top destinations, the all-inclusive resort complex Barceló Maya Grand Resort, will become one of the largest in the Riviera Maya with the completion of Barceló Maya Riviera, its new exclusive adults-only, all-inclusive resort.

Not only that, Barceló Maya Grand Resort is also slated to unveil the largest convention centre in the region: Barceló Maya Arena. A combined investment of US$250 million-dollar has been allocated to the expansion project.


The new Barceló Maya Riviera resort promises to be a “luxurious escape for adult guests”, offering …

. 850 spacious guest rooms, more than half of them with ocean views

. Hot tubs in all guestroom balconies

. Double beds or “Super King” options for all guestrooms

. 110 Swim Up Suites and Junior Suites

. Five restaurants including four specialty restaurants and one buffet restaurant. The specialty restaurants will offer a diverse array of cuisine, including Mexican (with a “Tacoyaki” bar), French fine dining, Italian, and Japanese (including 10 Tepanyaki tables and one Robatayaki table for fireside cooking).

. Five bars
. Four pools

The company says Barceló Maya Grand Resort’s expansive convention centre will make this resort destination the largest meetings and events venue – the perfect place for luxury conventions of all sizes, with more than 190,000 square feet of customizable multi-purpose space for expos, conventions and events.

For gala receptions with stunning views and fresh air, events planners will love the 3,400 square feet terrace. In the lower level dining venue, attendees get exceptional food and ambiance. For wedding planners, beach receptions at Playa Azul will be of special note thanks to the stunning ocean views.



“Barceló Maya Riviera is set to reshape the region’s hotel and convention offerings,” says 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.”
