Palace Resorts has announced the reopening of Playacar Palace, the brand’s luxury retreat in Playa del Carmen, following an extensive $14 million renovation.
The latest renovations mark the hotel’s second round of upgrades since opening in December 2005, and include updates to guest rooms, lobby, front desk, restaurants, and lounge areas. Playacar Palace’s new interiors were envisioned by renowned architect, Roberto Elias & coveted interior designer, Francois Frossard, blending many contemporary, yet classic elements.
Each of the 201-rooms boasts new décor, installation of modern furnishings, enhanced showers and vanity areas, top-of-the-line Lavazza coffee makers and advanced jets added to the in-room double whirlpool tubs, while the property’s existing “Walk Out” suites now feature a private terrace. Suite access is now readily available via state of the art wristbands, allowing guests to open the door to their suites with a wave of the hand. Guests can also open their rooms with their smartphones by downloading the Palace Resorts app from both the App Store and Google Play. Technological upgrades were also made to the property’s AC systems, featuring new hydraulic systems to ensure the resort meets eco-friendly standards.
Guests who book a stay of five nights or more are eligible for a $1,500 Resort Credit, which can be used on spa and beauty salon treatments, golf outings, romantic dinners, wedding packages, and off-site excursions and tours.
