Meliá Hotels transforms Gran Meliá Cancun into Paradisus Cancun Resort

Meliá Hotels International, one of the world’s largest resort hotel chains with more than 350 hotels in 35 countries on 4 continents, announced the transformation of the Gran Meliá Cancun property into a luxury all-inclusive Paradisus resort, to be completed by November 15, 2012.

The new Paradisus Cancun will provide a sophisticated answer to Cancun travelers’ requests and the evolving needs of the destination, from EP to an all-inclusiv emarket, by offering a superior customer product that is traditionally not associated with all-inclusive resort properties.

In bringing its most successful brand to Cancun, Meliá Hotels International is cementing the brand’s foothold in Mexico and building on the blossoming reputation of its two new flagship properties that recently opened in Playa del Carmen. Paradisus Cancun will feature all the attributes of the ‘luxeclusive’ Paradisus brand; providing guests with “Pure Freedom” to indulge, escape and enjoy the136 Royal Service Suites, 97 Family Concierge Suites, eight restaurants including signature beach front Gabi Club and exclusive new restaurant “Passion by Martin Berasategui” by Michelin Star chef Martin Berasategui.

“Our Gran Meliá Cancun guests had been asking for more comprehensive all-inclusive options and higher-end family-focused and adults-only amenities, it was evident that the Cancun area was missing a true luxury all-inclusive experience,” said Andre Gerondeau, Executive Vice President, Melia Hotels International. “Through our success of the Paradisus brand in the Caribbean and Mexico regions, we knew we had to bring our most successful brand to the area in order to offer a distinct experience that would set the property apart from the rest of the marketplace. With exciting new partnerships, such as “Passion by Martin Berasategui”, we are now able to provide an extraordinary product that had never previously been offered within the all-inclusive segment.”

TheParadisus Cancun property will offer the elegance and amenities exclusive to only the most prestigious hotels, set against the backdrop of one of the best beaches in the world. Resort amenities will include signature adult-only Royal Service program, Family Concierge program and Kid´s Club, four spectacular pools with swim up bars, eight restaurants featuring a variety of international cuisines, full service YHI Spa and Health Club, more than 10,000 square feet of meeting and convention space and a 9-hole par-3 golf course.


The striking multi-pyramid architecture of Gran Meliá Cancun will remain, while a series of renovations and beautifications are planned to elevate the property to the high design standards of Paradisus resorts.

Paradisus Resorts are elegantly designed with attention to every detail in mind. Spectacular architecture, world-class cuisine and premium service achieve the goal of allowing guests to experience ultimate relaxation in a stress-free and upscale environment, with the luxury of not once having to reach for a wallet. All properties reflect their surrounding environments and are set amid lush tropical gardens, chic restaurants, lavish suites, award-winning spas, pristine beaches and oversized, stylish swimming pools.
