Tides Riviera Maya in Mexico Completes Major Renovation
Riviera Maya, Mexico, January 11, 2012 – The completion of a major renovation of The Tides Riviera Maya has elevated the resort to a new level of luxury, and with these significant improvements Viceroy Hotel Group has added the property to its luxury Viceroy Hotels and Resorts portfolio.
The property is now the Viceroy Riviera Maya.
“The renovation has transformed the Viceroy Riviera Maya, making it even more comfortable, luxurious and enjoyable,” said General Manager Pedro Lara, adding, “We are an ideal fit with the Viceroy portfolio because of our mutual emphasis on outstanding personalized service, beautifully appointed accommodations, signature amenities and sophisticated dining.”
The renovation of the all-villa resort, set on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean and immersed in a jungle ambiance, included:
The six-acre resort is on the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula 40 miles south of Cancun and its international airport, and three miles north of popular Playa del Carmen, known for its beach scene, restaurants, boutiques and nightlife. Guests may stroll miles of beautiful white-sand beach along the spectacular Riviera Maya coast. The resort has its own pier where guests sunbathe, enjoy massages, savor romantic dinners, and may be conveniently picked up by boat for snorkeling, diving and other excursions. Opened in 2002, the resort originally was called Ikal del Mar, becoming The Tides Riviera Maya in 2006.
