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. All hotels have access to the facilities, comprising 9 themed restaurants, 3 buffet restaurants, 25 bars, 7 swimming-pools, a magnificent Spa, sports facilities, events and conference rooms, disco, Baby Club (1 to 3 years), Palladium Mini Club (4 to 12 years), Black & White Junior Club (13 to 19 years), the best services from the Palladium Hotel Group and much more.
