(Montreal – September, 17 2013) – Club Med – the world’s leading premium all-inclusive company with more than 70 resorts worldwide – announces Cancun Yucatan’s $14 million transformation, scheduled for completion in Summer 2014. Lined with three white sand beaches and nestled between the Caribbean Sea and a beautiful lagoon, Cancun Yucatan was masterfully designed in 1976 as one of the first resorts with the best location on Isla Cancun. Today, this award-winning destination is ranked as one of TripAdvisor’s “Top Family Hotels” in Mexico.
The redevelopment plans include 60 new stylish beachfront family accommodations, two redesigned and expanded restaurants which greatly enhance the gourmet dining experience, a fun, new Petit Club Med for children ages 2 – 3, and a trendy, modernized lounge for guests to enjoy a casual, yet sophisticated ambiance.

Along with panoramic sea views, the contemporary and chic rooms feature a master bedroom with a separate children’s room, 1.5 or 2 baths, and a terrace, providing parents and children the utmost in privacy and comfort.
- The new Petit Club Med for 2 and 3 year olds will complement the existing Children’s Clubs for kids ages 4 to 17, and will be themed around “Red Feather,” the pirate bird and his merry band of sailors. With a capacity for 35 children, this addition will allow parents to enjoy downtime while their little ones experience a fun-filled afternoon with expert childcare.
- Maya Lounge creates a transformed entertainment experience, with a trendy “fusion” of lounge, bar and nightclub. Located at the village center, this new concept transforms the theater into a luxe ‘hot spot’ with a modern twist.
