Mayan Palace, Grand Mayan, Grand Bliss, eight divisions within the Grand Luxxe Residence Club and the Estates.
In addition, Grupo Vidanta recently introduced Vidanta Cruises, the first cruise line to be headquartered in Mexico. It's first ship, Vidanta Elegant, arrived Spring, 2019 in Mazatlán after extensive refurbishment in Singapore, Spain and Italy. The month long voyage included going across the Atlantic Ocean and through the Panama Canal. The ship is currently undergoing continued major works in Mazatlán so it will be ready for its first voyage in October, 2019.
Other projects that are underway include the experiential entertainment park on the Nuevo Vallarta property called Vidanta World; the Jungala, which is the name of the new Water Park at Riviera Maya; the Estates; East Cape; Puerto Peñasco; and El Mezquite in San Jose del Cabo and other new restaurants that will be introduced and opened include a few exciting venues that will be highlighted here when we recieve updates from Vidanta. Very exciting....so be sure to stay tuned....and enjoy!
Occupancy continues to increase as restrictions are easing up. As we get closer to the Christmas and New Years weeks, The Mexican Government has given the ok to increase occupancy to 75%. I believe we will remain around 50% until further notice. Our cleanliness protocol has been adhered to very strictly. For the most part, guest satisfaction has been at an all time high which is encouraging.
Exciting times here in Nuevo Vallarta as several construction projects are set to open.
Beach town which is our beach club, restaurant district, and pool areas is set open this weekend. We and the opportunity to tour this area and it is a wonderful way to spend the day. Hotels says this weekend. There were some final touches that needed to complete before this opening, so it could be delayed(a short delay of anywhere from a day to a week).
The gondola is still going through its certification process. The public is not yet allowed to use the gondola yet, but we all believe soon. Once the developer releases the gondola to the hotel and public you will know. This impressive ride will take you from the beach to the santuario, to the residence tower and then onward to the park. In total, the ride lasts about 20 minutes. You will be able to see the entire resort from the gondola, from sea garden to the airport and across the highway.
Estates is still off limits to everyone except the construction crew. I have asked countless times to go into the site, but the entire property is under construction with the final month of finishing the first phase. The estates grounds with common areas will still be worked on as our first guests enjoy the villas. May 15th is the official opening as the common areas will be open and there will not be visible construction(even though there will be more construction on different parts of the property.).
Have a great day!
