Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), has added two resorts representing two brands offered by Mexico-based Grupo Vidanta, a leading developer of luxury properties in Latin America. Interval’s network now has a total of eight Grupo Vidanta resorts with more than 900 units, including Grand Luxxe, Grand Bliss, and The Bliss properties.
“We are excited to expand our relationship with Grupo Vidanta, in Mexico’s most sought-after destinations,” said David C. Gilbert, Interval’s president. “Mexico is a strategically important market for our company and these new resorts will provide our members with valuable vacation options.”
“We design, build, and operate our own products, so that we can assure the highest quality resorts and experiences,” said Michel Beuffe, CEO of Grupo Vidanta. “Our affiliation with Interval has been an important component of the quality our members and guests have come to expect from us. We look forward to continuing this strategic partnership as our brands grow.”
Five minutes’ drive north of Playa del Carmen, the 18-unit Grand Luxxe IV Riviera Maya is currently under construction and will offer spacious studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units, decorated in sand and sunset tones with natural stone and rich wood accents. They will include a private pool on the terrace of each unit and a whirlpool bath. Among the extensive array of planned on-site amenities are a private beach, large swimming pool, spa, fitness center, and cosmopolitan bars and restaurants. True to the Grand Luxxe brand, the resort will treat guests to a total luxury experience. The lavish interiors will feature exotic finishes and specially commissioned sculptures and paintings. There will be a 24-hour concierge and Internet Café on every floor.
Also under construction, the contemporary Grand Bliss IV Riviera Maya will welcome guests with 48 two-bedroom units, sophisticated bars and restaurants, spa, fitness center, children’s club, private beach, and swimming pool.
