Change is good. After 12 months and $24 million in renovations,
a new Club Med Cancun Yucatan will emerge on Nov. 1 as the latest
addition to over 80 resorts worldwide. During the resort’s closure,
Club Med revitalized not only the facilities, but also the
philosophy behind Club Med Cancun Yucatan’s raison d’être.
Changes include a strong emphasis on the discovery of the Yucatan
region, new programs for families, upscale amenities and the Jade
Villa, a concierge building for luxury travelers. The new Cancun
Yucatan resort exemplifies how Club Med continues to raise the bar
in all-inclusive offerings.
“Cancun Yucatan, with new children’s programs and the exclusive
Jade concept, is the next step in the evolution of Club Med’s
upscale and family-oriented vacations,” explained Cedric
Gobilliard, president and CEO, North America. “We provide a level
of choice and refinement that is truly unique.”
As a “Discovery Resort,” Club Med Cancun Yucatan encourages guests
to experience the archeology, gastronomy and culture of Mexico.
Trained and knowledgeable staff members at the resort’s new
Discovery Center facilitate excursions that emphasize respect and
understanding for local cultures and environments.
Located in the heart of the Cancun Yucatan resort, the Discovery
Center provides 17 options for all ages many of which promote
ecotourism. Discovery trips include a cultural tour of
archeological sites in Coba and Tulum, the opportunity to explore
the Cenotes of Ek Balam and a Mayan-led trip to Sian Ka’an, the
largest marine natural protected area in Mexico.
No longer an adults-only resort, Club Med Cancun Yucatan invites
families to discover the Yucatan Peninsula. With special facilities
dedicated to children and teens, families may choose among a
variety of excursions, daily activities and group lessons that
include water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, flying trapeze and
Launching the last week of December will be a Mini-Club Med,
catering to children ages 4 to 10. The Club Med concept exclusively
for teens and ‘tweens will launch Nov. 18. For parents traveling
with infants, Cancun Yucatan provides a Baby Welcome program with
amenities, such as bottle warmers, high chairs and babysitting in
the room. An “adults-only” dining area caters to guests seeking
intimacy and a child-free environment.
Guests can enjoy a complimentary half-day excursion, a hospitality
desk and the option to upgrade to the Jade Villa.
The property’s new gourmet restaurant offers daylong service,
hacienda-style dining rooms, meal choices to suit all appetites and
fresh menu options. Club Med Cancun Yucatan compliments its cuisine
with Latin American wines, a wide selection of premium tequilas,
signature Mexican margaritas and other fine alcohols. Guests can
enjoy guilt-free dining throughout the day with Cancun Yucatan’s
new cosmopolitan menus.
This fall, seven-night all-inclusive rates are from $1,190-1,350
per person. Jade Villa rates range from $1,428-1,785.
