(2014 - Winter Issue)


With numerous awards and accolades already garnered, this family-friendly resort offers enhanced luxury with its recent US$50-million renovation.

The Mexican Riviera beckons winter-weary travellers to soak up the sun, swim in the turquoise waters and experience its vibrant culture and cuisine. If you’re seeking a luxurious escape, book a stay at the Barceló Maya Beach Resort, just one hour south of Cancun International Airport.

This all-inclusive resort has received the coveted TripAdvisor’s 2014 Travelers’ Choice award, an honour bestowed upon less than one per cent of accommodations worldwide. And, as holder of an Earth Check Gold Certificate, Barceló Maya Beach Resort also maintains a strong commitment to the natural environment.

Take a deep breath and bid farewell to stress as your senses experience the lush tropical environment, exquisite views of the Caribbean Sea and authentic colonial Mayan-inspired architecture, murals and artwork. Located on one of the longest stretches of private beach in the Riviera Maya, the resort lists five hotels, 20 restaurants, 19 bars, eight swimming pools, three theatres, two water parks and a world-class spa. There’s also the option to enjoy an enhanced level of service and amenities at the Club Premium, an exclusive section providing VIP personalized services.

Enjoyment for All

Barceló Maya Beach Resort welcomes families of all ages and promises even more fun once its US$50-million renovation is completed in December 2014. Renovations include the addition of Maya Mall, a new entertainment centre with a sports bar, bowling alley, teen disco, new kids’ club, paddle tennis courts, water park with a surf ride pool and redesigned 18-hole miniature golf course.

Other renovations include modernized lobbies, redesigned bars and four new restaurants serving Japanese, Caribbean, Mexican and Italian beach fare. And the Barceló Maya Beach Club now includes Premium Suites, complete with terraces or in-room Jacuzzis.

At the resort, guests choose to be as busy or as relaxed as they wish. There’s an unlimited variety of activities day or night, as well as optional tours to snorkel or dive the Great Mayan Reef, swim with the dolphins or visit Mayan ruins. But if it’s privacy and peace you yearn for, there’s plenty of uncrowded beach space and an adults-only pool. Or book a rejuvenating treatment or two at the 1,486-square-metre Barceló U Spa before strutting out to enjoy top-notch cuisine and romantic vistas galore.

So pack your sandals and head off to the beautiful Mexican Riviera where Barceló Maya Beach Resort’s all-inclusive luxury is guaranteed to chase away those winter blues.
