Palladium Hotel Group Plans Fall 2018 Opening of Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa and TRS Coral Hotel in Mexico

IBIZA, ES. October 2, 2017 - Palladium Hotel Group’s newest addition to its portfolio of high-quality accommodations will introduce a brand new development to the northeast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Set to open in the fall of 2018, the project will include a family-friendly property, the Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa, and the adults-only TRS Coral Hotel, accompanied by a “Village” that includes a variety of restaurants, bars, kids clubs, and an amphitheatre.

Located in the almost untouched region in the most northern point of Cancun, Costa Mujeres distinguishes itself as an idyllic location for travelers to experience virgin beaches, crystal clear waters and an abundance of coral reefs and marine species. While this will be a brand new development, Palladium Hotel Group has maintained its ethos of sustainable tourism, executing extensive environmental studies to ensure minimal impact on the land, while maintaining the highest standard of quality at the properties.

Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa will have 673-rooms alongside all of the high-quality services and facilities that are found at the other Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts. A unique system of canals will allow guests to access all points of the resort by boat. Each room will boast a balcony or terrace overlooking the impressive views of the resort and out to sea. Some rooms will include premium features like direct access “swim-up” pools or hydro massage hot tubs on their private balconies.

Offering a wide range of services ideal for families, couples and groups, as well as state-of-the-art facilities for business trips or incentives, events, conferences and weddings, Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa accommodates the needs of all guests. The property’s facilities feature nine restaurants to suit every taste, four swimming pools, one of them exclusive for children, as well as an impressive 16,000 square-foot convention center with capacity for 1,380 people. The resort will also offer a varied range of experiences, with activities such as snorkeling, diving, yoga and pilates, live music shows at the open-air terraces, special VIP service for families including a special family area as well as treatment at their world-class 51,020 square-foot Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness center.

The 473-room TRS Coral Hotel will represent the rebrand of Palladium Hotel Group’s adults-only products, and the introduction of its new all-inclusive ideology and service aiming to provide ‘Infinite Indulgence’, with no limits, to all of its guests. The property’s modern style and architectural design is heightened by a discreet service tunnel network, out of sight of hotel guests, ensuring impeccable aesthetics and serenity. This innovative construction introduces a new and private hospitality experience, constructed nearly nine feet above sea level, to take advantage of the dramatic landscape and system of canals.

TRS Coral Hotel will provide adults with an exclusive and tranquil setting to rejuvenate and escape. Guests have access to the facilities and services offered at Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa and the Village, located close by, where they will be offered unlimited and preferential access.

The resort’s highlights include international culinary experiences at four á la carte restaurants in addition to the nine restaurants at Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa and an Ibiza style beach club with an infinity pool and poolside service, creating a glamourous, yet relaxing beachside retreat. Alongside the revitalizing, world-class spa and fitness zone, guests can continue to be pampered and relax at the infinity pool with mesmerizing views overlooking the ocean.

Only 18 miles (35 minutes) from Cancun’s International Airport and being just 20 minutes from the city, the resort offers an ideal location where guests can revel in the surrounding virgin beaches and mangroves. This is complemented with the exuberant nightlife and rich cultural and gastronomic offerings of the nearby city. The region’s unique surroundings, coupled with the excellent facilities, opens up an exclusive new destination hot spot for the North American market.

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
