Maya put the finishing touches on a major renovation in January 2012 that
completely transformed the resort with the addition
of spectacular new villas as well as a new grill restaurant by the sand,
fitness center and lobby. With the improvements, the property became
part of the Viceroy Hotels and Resorts portfolio and was renamed the Viceroy
Riviera Maya. Previously, it was The Tides Riviera Maya.
Viceroy Riviera Maya is a serene
hideaway of sugary-white sands lapped by the warm Caribbean and a jungle
ambiance of ferns, palms and guava trees. The resort merges every luxury amenity with
dramatic sea and jungle, bringing together the best of the destination. All 41
villas feature a private patio and plunge pool, outdoor shower, and a
high-ceiling, thatched-palapa roof that resonates with the jungle environment.
Guests enjoy fine dining on the sea-view loft of La Marea, Mexican-Mediterranean
fare at beachside Coral Grill, and state-of-the-art workout equipment in the
fitness center. At the spa, Mayan healing techniques and traditions infuse
every aspect of the guest experience.
The resort has its own pier where guests
can sunbathe, enjoy massages, savor romantic dinners, and may be conveniently
picked up by boat for snorkeling, diving and other excursions. The six-acre
resort is on the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula 40 miles south
of Cancun International Airport, and three miles north of popular Playa del
Carmen, known for its beach scene, restaurants, boutiques and
nightlife. For more information and reservations: 800-578-0281 or email@example.com.
