PUERTO PEÑASCO, MX (MAY 7, 2015) — Vida Vacations luxury resorts proudly announce the grand opening of their newest resort in Puerto Peñasco, The Grand Mayan. The Grand Mayan Puerto Peñasco offers an unparalleled level of luxury to travelers visiting Vidanta’s Puerto Peñasco resort, which also includes Mayan Palace. Every Thursday, the Grand Mayan Puerto Peñasco hosts a Fiesta Mexicana for 400 of the resort guests. Each fiesta is filled with traditional Mexican dancing, Mariachi music and a gourmet buffet dinner.
The resort architecture team took inspiration from the natural beauty of the surrounding desert and Sea of Cortez for The Grand Mayan Puerto Peñasco. Master rooms come standard with a Jacuzzi bathtub and a balcony with sweeping ocean views. Suites are the perfect option 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.
Puerto Peñasco has long been a local favorite of those in the Southwest but has recently grown to become internationally known. Only a three and a half hour drive from Tucson, Arizona and a five hour drive from San Diego, there’s no better time to explore a coastline featuring tide pools, sandy white beaches, fishing, restaurants and golf.
Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the Jack Nicklaus Golf Course at Vidanta Puerto Peñasco, a Nicklaus Legacy course co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II. The 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 gorgeous Sea of Cortez, and guests can start the day with a breakfast buffet or try the restaurant’s specialty cuisine, barbecue, at lunch or dinner. Balché, named for the ancient Mayan sacred drink of excellence, offers casual poolside dining 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 various exercise classes.
“Vida Vacations holds a very high standard of excellence that our discerning clientele expect, 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 Peñasco.”
The Grand Mayan Puerto Peñasco is Vida Vacation’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.
