A-nah PoolInterval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition of A-nah Suites Playa del Carmen in the Mexican Caribbean. The resort was built by Ricardo Montalvo, whose residential and commercial real estate development experience in Mexico spans more than a quarter century.

“We recently launched our new A-nah Suites brand with a luxury property in one of the Riviera Maya’s most popular vacation destinations,” noted Montalvo, president of Grupo Inmobiliario Sector, S.A. de C.V. “We are very excited about this new chapter in our company’s evolution and the important role that this product offering plays in our overall strategic plan.”

“We are delighted to work with Ricardo and his team in their first venture into shared ownership,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America. “Mexico ranks among the top three preferred international travel destinations for our U.S.–resident members and we are sure they will appreciate A-nah Suites’ signature style, upscale amenities, and location in the heart of Playa del Carmen.”

The boutique resort includes 89 one- and two-bedroom units decorated in a fresh, bright contemporary style with light-wood accents. Each features an ample living and dining area, marble floors, fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms with modern finishes, flat-screen televisions, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and balconies or patios with views of a lush courtyard terrace.

Among the various on-site amenities and services are the A-Nah Spa, hot tubs, rooftop swimming pool and bar, fitness center, children’s club and playground, private beach club, game room, outdoor cinema, complimentary Wi-Fi access, concierge services, housekeeping, and 24-hour room service.
