Extensive enhancements to the resort’s interiors and exteriors include a completely redesigned lobby, new designer guest suites, redefined restaurants with new gourmet dining menu options, upgraded meeting space and newly decorated common spaces including bars and lounges.

The beachfront adults-only property is located on an enclave between Nichupte Lagoon and the Caribbean Sea. 

In addition to new renovations, the hotel also features its traditional facilities including a 30,957-square-foot spa with 19 treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy facility, fitness centre, wellness centre, plunge pools, gourmet specialty cuisine, butler service and over 8,115-square-feet of meeting space.

The overhaul of the resort reinforces Palace’s commitment to continue to be the leader in the luxury, upscale, adults-only, all-inclusive market, says Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts.

“We spared no detail in the renovations and upgrades, which are evident in its opulence and design,” says Chapur. “From fine dining to an innovative spa and on-trend wellness options, to lavish accommodations and top-notch service, Le Blanc Spa Resort will continue to be recognized around the world as the top luxury hotel in Cancun.”
