The most recent addition to The Villa Group Resorts collection, the new Villa del Palmar Cancun, will open phase one on December 24 with 150 rooms and suites.
Guests can expect contemporary-styled rooms with a relaxing atmosphere and Mexican flair. All rooms will feature private terraces with ocean views, and will be furnished with kitchenettes, sofa beds, desks, flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access and spa tubs.
One and two-bedroom suites will also offer distinct living rooms, separate bathtubs and showers, fully-equipped kitchens with full-sized refrigerators/freezers, stovetops, microwaves and utensils, plus washer/dryer.
There will also be three ultra-luxurious 1,600-square-foot two-bedroom penthouses. They will have terraces with patio whirlpools, exterior living rooms under trellis, and extensive areas for sunbathing.
Mexican and international cuisine is currently available at the resort’s two full-service restaurants, La Casona and Zamá. In addition, there will be casual dining options at the Palmita Market (a grab-and-go marketplace), convenience store, and an outdoor lounge serving sushi in the evenings, as well as a Tiki beach bar opening in February. Guests can take advantage of two pools, one for adults only, with a pool butler, four Jacuzzis and an activities center. For spa-lovers, two massage huts will be located in the pool area.
The multi-phase project has a target date of August for completion of Phase Two, which will add an additional 136 rooms. When its phases are complete in December of 2011, the oceanfront resort, part of the Playa Mujeres complex eight miles north of Cancun’s hotel zone, will feature a total of 415 rooms, three pools, as well as four outdoor Jacuzzis, fitness room, a spa and a full-service water activities center.
