There’s a major new resort on the Caribbean coast of Mexico: The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun.

Palace Resorts’ newest project has more than 1,300 guest rooms, nine outdoor swimming pools, an adults-only “unique day club” with a live DJ spinning poolside, five swim-up bars, a beach club, a children’s waterpark, a six-lane bowling alley and more than 80,000 square feet of meeting and events spaces.

The property also has 10 new restaurants, ranging from the Asian “Jade” to a steakhouse called “JC.”

Wellness is also a focus, thanks to a new 76,876-square-foot “Awe-Spa” containing a whopping 60 spa suites, along with a hydrotherapy circuit, plunge pools, steam and sauna rooms and more.

The resort, which is located within the brand’s signature Moon Palace Cancun, was envisioned by Palace Resorts’ exclusive designer, Francois Frossard, aiming for a “new standard in “luxury all inclusive” accommodations.

“The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun is without a doubt our most unbelievable project yet,” said Gibran Chapur, executive vice president of Palace Resorts. “Palace Resorts envisioned a property that would truly take luxury, convenience, and entertainment and upscale culinary dining and combine it to surpass any traditional, luxury all-inclusive around.”
