PUERTO PENASCO, Mexico, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Vidanta, one of the largest and most-decorated developers of luxury resorts and tourism infrastructure in Latin America, today announced the grand opening of a new resort in Puerto Penasco, The Grand Mayan. The Grand Mayan Puerto Penasco offers an elevated level of luxury to travelers visiting Vidanta's Puerto Penasco resort, which also includes Mayan Palace Puerto Penasco.
Vidanta's architecture team drew inspiration from the natural beauty of the surrounding desert, and the incredible Sea of Cortez, in their design for The Grand Mayan Puerto Penasco. 60 luxurious suites are available and come standard with a Jacuzzi bathtub and a balcony boasting ocean views. Accommodations are perfect for families or guests who prefer longer stays and include a kitchenette, kitchen bar, dining table and a balcony complete with a private plunge pool.
"Grupo Vidanta holds a very high standard of excellence, and that excellence is reflected in the design, construction and operation of our newest luxury resort," said Michel Beuffe, CEO for Grupo Vidanta. "We're excited to welcome vacationers from around the world to experience paradise at The Grand Mayan Puerto Penasco."
Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the Jack Nicklaus Golf Course at Vidanta Puerto Penasco, a Nicklaus Legacy course co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II. The challenging, 7,210 yard, par-72 course is situated on a two-mile peninsula bordered by the Sea of Cortez, a tidal estuary and an inlet to the south. The course features nine ocean-side holes.
On-property restaurant options span a variety of global cuisines. Bakal overlooks the Sea of Cortez, and guests can start the day with a breakfast buffet or try the restaurant's specialty – barbecue – at lunch or dinner. Balche – named for the ancient Mayan sacred drink of excellence – offers casual poolside ambience and a wide variety of sandwiches, burgers and cocktails.
The BRIO Spa and Fitness Center provides guests of The Grand Mayan unique services ranging from a relaxing hot stone massage to a rejuvenating red wine body treatment. Sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi or cold plunge treatments are available, and fitness facilities include a gym, yoga room and spinning and Pilates classes.
The Grand Mayan Puerto Penasco is Grupo Vidanta's fifth resort in The Grand Mayan family. Sister resorts include newly renovated The Grand Mayan Los Cabos and AAA Four Diamond award-winning properties in Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Maya and Acapulco.
