The country also has one of the highest numbers of archeological sites in the world. Our lands hold ancient secrets, including the grand fortress of Tulum near Grand Velas; a magnificent Mayan fortress overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
From the resort, you can also easily explore this destination’s other highlights as well, such as the beautiful theme parks of Xel-ha, Xcaret, and Xochimilco. Venture to the pyramid of Chichen Itzá or experience the sensation of snorkeling in one of the Yucatan’s freshwater cenotes. White sand beaches, verdant greenery, and ancient Mayan secrets are waiting to be explored.

We recommend Grand Velas because you simply have not seen it all until you have experienced our unique form of luxury and hospitality. Here you’ll experience beauty at every turn, elegance and sophistication unlike anywhere else, and amenities and services that make meeting planning a dream.
This dream had to be shared to make it true. 11 years ago the Vela family redefined hospitality standards, creating two grand tourism jewels; Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in the Mexican Pacific and Grand Velas Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Caribbean coast.
The goal was to host incentives and groups with highest standards of hospitality, and they found that no one even came close to the level they had in mind. An architect, engineer, and attorney joined forces to build both properties, contracting one of the best interior designers in Latin America to make the project esthetically breathtaking.
The result of their efforts was membership in The Leading Hotels of the World and AAA Five Diamond Awards for both resorts.
Grand Velas Riviera Maya simply must be seen to be believed. The Vela brothers redefined standard room sizes with all suites, all with Jacuzzis, taking the concept to the next level at Grand Velas Riviera Maya, where guests select from three separate ambiances.
While other resorts charge additional fees for terraces and spacious suites, the Vela brothers understood that everyone is important enough to enjoy a 1,000+ sq. ft. suite with Jacuzzi, separate rain shower, imported linens, white goose down comforters, pillow menu and state of the art electronics.
At Grand Velas Riviera Maya guests enjoy all standard five-star amenities plus many other surprises and delights.
Groups are never relegated to buffet lines; instead they enjoy internationally acclaimed dining experiences at the hands of expert chefs. A la carte menus in seven restaurants create a culinary experience to remember, every time.
The resort’s Convention Center proves that you never have to sacrifice beauty for function. Its majestic, air-conditioned foyers and cathedral ceilings embody luxury and elegance; complemented by the finest banquet facilities, linens, drapes, dishes and crystal ware.
Each of the three ambiances presents something new and exciting to explore, with three sprawling swimming pools accented by their pristine tropical surroundings.
In the Zen Grand ambiance, one can appreciate exotic suite décor, verdant greenery, babbling freshwater streams and the sounds of the jungle. The Ambassador ambiance brings a sensation of peace and harmony with neutral furnishings and sweeping ocean views, while the Grand Class Ambiance takes guests to the edge of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, in the most opulent of accommodations.
Choose Grand Velas to introduce guests to the ultimate luxury experience; enhanced by the warmth of Mexican culture.
