First Xcaret All-Inclusive Resort Debuts in Riviera Maya
Posted on 12/05/2017
The all-inclusive market continues to evolve and its newest addition combines the stunning nature parks of Xcaret with five-star accommodation.
Xcaret has launched its first all-inclusive Hotel Xcaret Mexico in the Riviera Maya, providing travelers with a new sustainable tourism option that was years in the making.
“What was an ambitious vision that began 25 years ago, today has become a dream come true,” said Marcos Constandse, CEO of Destino Xcaret at the grand opening event.
“Hotel Xcaret Mexico invites travelers to celebrate the history, culture and natural landscape that makes Mexico such an invigorating place. Visitors can experience our culture in so many ways at Hotel Xcaret Mexico, and through an All-Fun Inclusive experience that is unmatched by any other resort,” Constandse added.
The new property features 900 Mexican-inspired all-view suites with balconies that overlook the beach, private coves, a flowing river or lush gardens.
Within the hotel are two special retreats, the Casa Fuego and the Casa Agua.
Casa Fuego is an adults-only area with private spaces and amazing views. Casa Agua offers a more holistic, tranquil experience with rooms positioned next to the resort’s spa and wellness center.
Room categories at the property include a choice of a Suite, Junior Suite, Swim-up Suite or Master Suite.
Inside each guestroom visitors will find locally made Mexican decor, accents and furniture as well as Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules from Cafe del Creole and amenities inspired by the wonders of Xcaret.
Stays at the new Hotel Xcaret Mexico include access to Experiencias Xcaret’s eight nature parks and tours including Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Xplor, XplorFuego, Xoximilco, Xenses, Xichen and Xenotes.
In addition, guests have access to airport shuttle service, 24-hour room service, concierge and concierge app, complimentary Wi-Fi, kids and teens clubs and babysitting services upon request.
The resort features 10 different restaurants and eight bars imagined by local Mexican chef Orlando Trejo.
The concept at Ha’ restaurant is led by Michelin-star Chef Carlos Gaytan, who was also a “Top Chef” contestant.
“We are not just going to serve meals or dinners, we want to generate a personal relationship with each person and transform their lives through a story our dishes will tell,” Gaytan said about the gastronomy experience.
In addition to culinary journeys, guests can enjoy a variety of spa experiences at Muluk Spa & Wellness, which offers holistic treatments that include a Temazcal, biodynamic signature amenities, dermo aesthetics, a hydrotherapy circuit, a salt flotation tank and more.
The new resort is just the beginning for Destination Xcaret. An ambitious 10-year plan calls for more than 6,000 guestrooms spread over 914 acres when fully complete. In addition to new accommodations, plans call for a stadium, a convention center, a shopping center and a culinary destination called Pueblo del Rio.
