The Tides Riviera Maya, an all-villa luxury resort set on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, has launched a major renovation that will enhance and expand the accommodations, dining options and other guest facilities.
The highlights of the renovation, which will be completed in December, include 11 additional private luxury villas with plunge pools, increasing inventory by more than a third to 41 villas; a new entrance, motor court and reception area, creating a sense of arrival that is more welcoming and convenient and expanded and enhanced dining choices with the addition of a grill restaurant by the sand featuring wood-burning grills and a reconfiguration and remodel of the existing lounge and fine-dining restaurant.
There will also be cosmetic improvements to the existing 29 villas, a brand new gym with popular workout equipment, a new and much larger gift shop offering a wide range of resort and personal products and more.
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.
Opened in 2002, the resort originally was called Ikal del Mar, becoming The Tides Riviera Maya in 2006.
