Grand Luxxe Punta, Gossip, Across the River, Noise

November 4, 2011

KMACKERMANN is in Nuevo Vallarta and has sent us all an update from Grupo Vidanta's vacation resort property at Nuevo Vallata. Following are her comments and her photos:

There will probably be several posts to cover everything.

First, the disclaimer: we all know how things can change,and what you hear from different sources can vary. That being said...

Punta: will open soon, parts maybe tomorrow, pools filled, trees in, no road in yet (unless hidden-very possible), crews working til 3AM, amazing sloped entrance (almost overnight), new road right along the river - seems to be anyway. Hopefully will be able to sneak a look at at least something across the river.

OWNER'S UPDATE:
  • five days ago all sales staff met with head honchos for THE FUTURE!!. Our guy said they all had "goose bumps. "UNBELIEVABLE" was the adjective used over and over.
  • Goal is to be #1 resort in the world-more sought after than Atlantis, Disney, Dubai...
  • Hired marketing group away from Atlantis. 3 golf courses in the future-Greg Norman for sure, Weiscooff (sp?), Tiger rumored.
  • They own from the river to airport, ocean to highway, and some beyond.
  • Cirque de Soleil is signed.
  • Casino probably across highway.
  • Bridges across the river.
  • River widened to avoid flooding and storm surge (good Eco-wise?).
  • Island maybe Eco-tour but kept as preserve.
  • No mention of other housing.
  • Never-before imagined water park geared more to adults.

    The Grand Luxxe Punta water park will extend from the front of Luxxe Tower I to the front of Grand Luxxe Punta. On the Ameca River side of the building, there is a road that is under construction that will access the south side of the building, which is likely the main entrance.


    Management would like to open the Grand Luxxe Punta at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico sometime in November, 2011.  This photo was taken with a phone camera by KMACKERMANN.  It shows the progress being made. The Grand Luxxe Punta at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico may open in November, 2011.  KMACKERMANN's photo of the pools that will be used by Grand Luxxe Members show how far along they are toward completion and what is yet to be done.  Photo was taken using her phone. The Grand Luxxe at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico is on its way.  This photo shows the progress made so far.  We hear that a Soft Opening could occur in November 2011. Development of the Grand Luxxe Pools in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico if far along.  The swimming pools extend from the Grand Luxxe Tower I to the front of the Grand Luxxe Punta.  Definitely an attractive addition.


OTHER STUFF
  • Gossip - train station soon - fountains-lovely, etc.

    These photos show the the Train Station / Reception Area that is under construction at the new entrance to the property located near Highway 200. Arriving guests will ride the train along the Ameca River to the other Train Station / Reception Area in front of the Grand Bliss Resort building. These photos were taken from the golf course and show a thatched roof as part of the complex. Many interesting changes taking place!


    There are two new structures that are rumored to be Train Stations.  One is near the new entrance at the Jerrataderas exit off Highway 200 from Puerto Vallarta.  This photo provides a glimpse of how the new structure at the entrance to the property will appear.

The other is a new structure east of the Grand Bliss Resort building.  Rumors are entering and exiting the property may only be through these two access points.  Rumors, just rumors.

This photo was taken from the Nayar Golf course. There are two new structures that are rumored to be Train Stations.  One is near the new entrance, which is at the Jerrataderas exit off Highway 200 from Puerto Vallarta.  The other is a new structure east of the Grand Bliss Resort building.

These buildings could be the primary way guests gain access to and leave from the Vidanta vacation resort property at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

  • New exit for Vida paid for by Vida.
  • Still the same thoughts about the train.
  • Regarding the new Luxxe buildings -

    the big 4th floor openings will have shops, caves, etc.


    The road to Grand Luxxe III and IV is higher than the road that leads to Grand Luxxe Punta, Tower I and Tower II.  This photo shows the elevation of the road and its position relative to the Grand Luxxe Tower II (right) and Tower III (left).  Rumor is the fourth floor will be shops and caves(?).  Guests will enter the building using the elevated roadway.  Changes.... The fourth floor of the Grand Luxxe Towers III, IV and V is still a mystery.  Elevated road way to the west end of Tower III.  Lower rooms have pretty limited views.  The buildings will not be complete for several months, at which time we will better understand the configuration of the buildings.


    The road will go directly into the area, but will be only open to the carts.
  • The road is worked on about 21 hours a day and is virtually up to the level of the fourth floor - will go into the next building(s) also.
  • Rebar the next couple days, then cemented with some landscaping done.
  • Eventually no vehicles other than electric carts.
I think that's most of the gossip also.

Noise-YES. We are GL 2, 9th floor, city side, bldg 1 end. Lower must be horrible because it can be bad here. However, we ignore it and just watch the progress. I will close our villa bedroom door tonight however, as the noise from trucks and work at Punta did wake me up a lot..

Will take photos and post when I get home and have my cable. Very interesting!!!

Did not proofread either post; not good for ex-English teacher!

Great update! You must have been a terrific teacher! Thanks from all of us!
