GRAND PALLADIUM RIVIERA MAYA RESORTS
Designed by renowned architects, the resorts were virtually carved into a vast jungle setting. Great care was taken to integrate the buildings into a natural tropical environment while respecting the flora and fauna. This has resulted in an ecologically friendly resort in a natural environment with preserved tropical vegetation, beautifully manicured gardens and a variety of animals indigenous to the area. The hotel employs a team of biologists who are responsible for maintaining the eco-system and the well being of the animals and vegetation.
The Grand Palladium Riviera Maya complex consists of four 5-star hotels on the Riviera Maya with direct access to Kantenah beach, modern facilities and the room of your dreams.
