The latest Secrets Resorts & Spas property, Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun, has broken ground. The property is expected to open in fall 2008, and represents the second Unlimited-Luxury concept resort in the Secret brand’s expansions plans.

Like sister property Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, Secrets Silversands is designed as an all-adult all-inclusive resort.

The resort will feature 446 suites with ocean views, 24-hour concierge and room service, four-poster king- or two queen-size beds, daily refreshed mini-bars, Jacuzzi for two and a Secrets box for private room service.

Other features include seven bars and a spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and beauty salon.

In addition, Secrets Silversands will offer 43,000 square feet of gardens and pool areas, as well as a fitness center, Jacuzzis, tennis courts, a beachfront wedding gazebo and more than 8,000 square feet of meeting and function space.

Seven signature restaurants will offer cuisine ranging from Mexican favorites, Pan-Asian fusion and fresh seafood to French specialties and Italian fare.

“Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and represents a further foothold in the luxury resort segment for the AMResorts family,” said Alejandro Zozaya, AMResorts president. “The property is located in a haven of pristine beaches and stunning scenery, providing a very special retreat for our guests.”

Located on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Secrests Silversands Riviera Cancun is located on the beach of Petempich, 15 miles from Cancun.

AMResorts is scheduled to open seven new Secrets Resorts & Spas by late 2009 in locations such as the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and other properties in Mexico.
