The Westin Resort & Spa, Cancún, owned by VistanaTM Signature Experiences, Inc., an operating business of ILG (Nasdaq: ILG), today announced it has unveiled a top-to-bottom redesign of all the resort’s public areas, the launch of Arena Sports Bar & Restaurant and the debut of a Flowrider® surf simulator.

“Following a nine-month refurbishment, we are delighted to offer guests a dynamic and rejuvenating experience that combines the sleek sophistication of the Westin® brand with the natural beauty of our surroundings,” said Pedro Groschopp, general manager. “Following the total remodel of our public areas and enhancements to our recreation facilities, the resort is a standout in this sought-after vacation destination.”

Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Nichupte Lagoon, The Westin Resort & Spa, Cancún, offers stylish guest rooms and extensive recreation facilities in a convenient location at the southern end of the area’s hotel zone. Inspired by the beauty of Cancun, the freshly renovated lobby offers stunning water views to create an atmosphere in harmony with the destination. The new lobby decor features a soothing palette of blue and green tones enhanced by a variety of marine accents.

With stunning water views of both the lagoon and sea, the resort’s brand-new Arena Sports Bar & Restaurant features a spectacular bar made with recycled marine glass. The inviting atmosphere welcomes sports enthusiasts to enjoy games on large-screen televisions in the company of friends and fellow travelers, while choosing from a wide selection of specialty cocktails. Under the direction of renowned Chef Neptali Haringthon, the restaurant’s diverse menu features classic American fare such as the 16-ounce Arena Burger and Baby Back Ribs, as well as Westin SuperFoodsRXTM selections, vegetarian and gluten-free options, and artisanal ice cream.

The resort’s extensive recreation and water-sport facilities now include a Flowrider surf simulator, providing guests with a taste of adventure in a safe setting. Children as young as 6 can learn to body board in this high-tech wave generator, while adults can take a turn standing on flow boards under the supervision of certified instructors. Guests can also enjoy direct access to white-sand beaches and different outdoor activities. The newly renovated Terrace and Lagoon Pool area offers several seating areas and stunning views of the Nichupte Lagoon where visitors can relax in the new infinity pool and enjoy a variety of cocktails at the refurbished Brisas Bar. As part of the brand’s global Westin Family program, the hotel offers signature amenities and interactive programming that draws inspiration from the destination and nature to promote a sense of well-being.

Complementing these exciting renovations will be 44 spectacular studio and two-bedroom villas that are scheduled to open this spring. These accommodations will be equipped with modern kitchens, washers and dryers, living and dining areas, spacious balconies and will feature the world-renowned Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath, enhanced with the brand’s Heavenly® Shower and White Tea Aloe amenities.

The resort is close to a variety of shopping, dining, and nightlife, and within easy reach of the area’s leading attractions, including the Tulum ruins, Chichén Itzá, and Xel-Há Natural Aquarium and Caves. For more information and reservations, please visit
