CANCUN, MEXICO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- If staying at a AAA Five Diamond, five-star resort along Cancun's most breathtaking beach weren't exciting enough, the JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa has undergone a stunning renovation. In December 2013, this hotel near Tulum unveiled dramatic renovations to its lobby, spa and Club 91 lounge, while its sister property, CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort, followed suit with a renovated restaurant, enhanced Kid's Club amenities and new pool and beach accessories. Even the best things, it turns out, can get better.
For proof, one needs only to set foot within the new lobby of the JW Marriott's Cancun resort. Where once sweeping, honey-toned spaces were balanced by an imposing, wall-like front desk, the new lobby features more intimate seating areas and individualized pods at the front desk and concierge for personalized service. The finishes have also benefited from the $190,000 USD renovation. Creamy new wallpaper creates an airy effect, while dark wood desks and accents feel more sophisticated than the medium wood tones.
The other space to enjoy a comprehensive overhaul was CasaMagna's Mikado Japanese restaurant. The eatery feels like a completely new restaurant, thanks to the updated bar, décor and equipment.
Updated equipment featured prominently in CasaMagna's other spaces, too. Its Kid's Club, for example, now entertains the pint-sized set with a new play structure and aesthetic (along with certified babysitting services). And those looking to indulge in a lazy afternoon or two will appreciate the new, oceanfront palapas and pool beds available to guests.
Relaxing at the JW's luxury hotel in Cancun is even easier now, too, thanks to the $350,000 worth of investments in its Mayan-inspired spa. New wallpaper, new furniture, new bedding styles and linens and new décor all create a revitalized spa experience. And for those fortunate few who enjoy access to the exclusive Club 91, new furnishings and renovated dining stations ensure each visit is as comfortable and inviting as it is elite.
With so many updated features to underscore the appeal of these hotels near Chichen Itza, Mexico, there's never been a better time for travelers to book their Cancun escape where the best just keeps getting better.
