Inside Paradisus Cancun
March 24, 2013By: Meagan Drillinger

Five Star Alliance's sister publication, Travel Agent, recently wrote an article about the recently re-vamped Pardisus Cancun

Travel Agent visited Paradisus Cancun in January, following its reopening and rebranding on December 1. Before, the resort operated as a Gran Melia, but has since been repurposed as a Paradisus, Melia's luxury all-inclusive brand. 

The resort offers guests six restaurants and three bars, several pools, a YHI Spa, golf course and more. Paradisus Cancun is also home to the specialty Royal Service, a private enclave of rooms that are adults-only, and come with their own set of privileges. Those who book four nights in the Royal Service section receive an included meal at Tempo. Royal Service guests also have access to the YHI Spa's hydrotherapy suite without having a treatment scheduled. A private pool and beach section is also available for guests of Royal Service. The resort offers a selection of Life Enriching experiences to help bring guests closer to the culture of Mexico and Cancun. We participated in a tequila tasting with the resort's sommelier. Guests can also opt for experiences like massage classes, DJ lessons and more. The Paradisus Cancun

Guests will want to stay in the Deluxe Royal Service Ocean Front rooms, which are the most requested accommodations. However, if you are looking for something even more over-the-top, say for a CEO, for example, the Presidential and Government Suites are best. All rooms in the Royal Service section entitle guests to private butler service. 

Getting there: Cancun International Airport is just 25 minutes away. The concierge can arrange anything from a town car or limo to Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Mercedes Benz SLS. If guests want to land a private helicopter, Cancun's airport can accommodate. 

The YHI Spa is a great place to unwind. There are 11 treatment rooms in the 4,900-square-foot space (six regular rooms and five eco rooms; three are for couples). Reservations are taken starting a month in advance but it is best to book at least 24 hours out. Try the Ix-Chel Holistic massage. 

The resort features a 'pitch and put' golf course on the grounds. If guests want something a little more exclusive, the resort can arrange for a golf pro to come to the property for a private golf clinic.
