Palladium Hotel Group has officially debuted its newest all-inclusive hotels on the Caribbean coast of Mexico.
The company held the grand opening for the new 1,139-room TRS Coral Hotel and Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort and Spa complex this week.
The TRS Coral, now part of Leading Hotels of the World, is an adults-only resort, with 469 rooms.
Guests at the TRS Coral get everything from personal butlers to 24-hour room service, access to four a la carte eateries, and what the property calls an “Ibiza-style” beach club.
The Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort and Spa, a family-friendly property, has 670 rooms, along with nine eateries of its own, a range of activities on offer and a 15,995-square-foot convention center and the Zentropia Palladium Spa.
The combined complex saw an investment of $280 million by Palladium, according a statement from the company.
It’s also home to a central amenity called “The Village,” which features restaurants, bars, children’s clubs, amphitheaters and chapels.
Most notably, the project includes the new Rafa Nadal Tennis Center, the first tennis center by the legendary athlete outside of his original center in Mallorca.
“The alliance of Palladium Hotel Group with Rafa Nadal for the launch of Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre is further evidence that the company has long focused on achieving differentiation, always with the goal of being the best,” said Palladium Hotel Group CEO CEO Abel Matutes. “Additionally, it should be noted that, in particular with the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts brand, we had long given much importance to sports, and effectively enhancing sports facilities. Having the opportunity to work with Rafa Nadal is a source of pride because in addition to being the best tennis player, the values he represents, transmits and inculcates are impeccable.”
The new TRS and Grand Palladium hotels are part of a broader Caribbean expansion for Palladium, which opened a new TRS-branded resort in Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic last fall.
Costa Mujeres is set at the northernmost point in Cancun, and thanks to its relative lack of development has become a hub for hotel development.
That includes a pair of new Riu-branded hotels, the Riu Palace Costa Mujeres and the Riu Dunamar.
