Another step in Club Med’s transformation towards a more luxurious offering, the Resorts improvements reveal a new facet to this jewel of the Caribbean.
Club Med led the charge in the development of the Caribbean as a holiday destination with the building of Club Med Cancun Yucatan in 1976, the areas first resort. As such, Club Med Cancun Yucatan is situated in a prime location on the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The Resort’s upmarket makeover includes elegant accommodation upgrades, new gourmet international and authentic local food offerings, plus a refreshed kids club.
Exclusive seaside luxury
Located just opposite living coral reef, the 5-Trident luxury space, Jade features 18 sea-view suites and 37 deluxe rooms with a balcony or private garden. This lavish space also offers high-end amenities including concierge service, a lounge with bar service and champagne in the evening, and a reserved infinity pool. Guests can enjoy additional exclusive services like in-room breakfast service or preferential booking for the specialty restaurant and spa.
Interior designers, Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet paid homage to the Resort's exceptional setting between lagoon and sea and sought inspiration from the Spanish, Mayan and Mexican cultures of past and present to recreate an authentically designed environment that is both intimate and friendly. The 436 bungalow-style guest rooms were designed low to the ground so that guests can be closer to the beautiful natural surrounds. The bungalows feature architectural cues from traditional Mexican haciendas and offer panoramic sea views with terraces or balconies facing the beach. With 60 additional family rooms, including Club and Deluxe Family rooms, this Resort is an ideal holiday destination for families of all sizes.
