Our View of The Grand Luxxe Residence Club
Units Now Include Residences, Lofts, SPAs, Villas and Suites
Grand Luxxe Residence Club is the newest and most elegant brand of timeshare resorts invested in by Grupo Vidanta. The living areas are spacious, comfortable and beautiful. New buildings are both open and under construction at the Grupo Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico and Riviera Maya, Mexico properties.
Grand Luxxe buildings at the two locations are very different.
At the Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico location, the buildings are up to nine stories and located along the Ameca River in Mexico. The buildings that are operating or under construction include:
On the eastern side of Mexico, located on the Grupo Vidanta Riviera Maya, Mexico property, the Grand Luxxe buildings are 3 floors high rather than the 9 floors for the Luxxe towers in Nuevo Vallarta. Buildings at Riviera Maya must be low to the ground to be hurricane safe. Grupo Vidanta Management is proud of its safety record when hurricanes descend on the property.
The Luxxe buildings at Riviera Maya are built in the form of triangular "Pods" (our word). Each side of the triangle is 3 stories and has four, two bedroom units per floor. Each "pod" then offers thirty six, two bedroom units.
Luxxe Building One opened in November, 2010. On November 7, 2011, Grupo Vidanta announced that Building Two is open and ready for occupancy. In fact, the announcement encourages Grand Luxxe members to consider making reservations during the Holiday Season, which is ordinarily offered for use at a premium. Grand Luxxe Buildings Three is moving rapidly toward a scheduled opening date of November 15, 2013. This building is rumored to be a SPA only building. Meanwhile, Construction of Building IV is also undersway, may be made up of 2 and 3 bedroom Lofts on the first two floors and Presidential Villas on the third floor.
Although the buildings are different, the physical layouts of the living units are very similar at each location in Mexico.

Such contracts are sold to individuals who are members of other Grupo Vidanta resort brands (Grand Bliss, Grand Mayan, Bliss, Mayan Palace and Sea Garden) as upgrades or to individuals who are not already members of any Grupo Vidanta resort brands.
