Nestled along the seashore of the Riviera Maya and surrounded by natural landscapes lies a destination that promises a grand getaway.
With 978 rooms, Bahia Principe Grand Tulum is the second largest property within a four-resort complex, although it feels younger and livelier than its three counterparts. As Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts flagship property, Bahia Principe Grand Tulum first arrived in Mexico over 20 years ago and has since been completely transformed, now placing its Mayan origin front and centre as it merges into the beautiful natural environment.
Inspired by such natural surroundings and the areas’ deep cultural roots, today, the Bahia Principe Grand Tulum is the product of extensive renovations and a USD $40 million investment that occurred in 2020. With its sprawling complex, abundant amenities, and array of offerings, this GRAND escape truly lives up to its name.
Welcome to where turquoise water meets pale white sands.
The Grand Bahia Concept
At Bahia Principe Grand Tulum, the “grand” experience extends far beyond just a name.
These colossal complexes are designed to provide a vacation experience like no other. Here, guests are treated to a world of history and culture, where every whim is met with remarkable attention to detail. As Henry Perez, Director of Sales & Business Development, USA & Canada, at Bahía Príncipe Hotels & Resorts says, it is designed with the Mayan heritage in mind.
“The minute you walk into the lobby you get the Mayan feel,” he said.
Something for Everyone
From grandchildren to grandparents, Bahia Principe Grand Tulum caters to the needs and preferences of every guest, ensuring that every member of the family has their own slice of paradise on the property.
“It is one of our most amazing resorts in the area for families. We have lots of activities for kids of all ages,” said Perez. “They will not be bored; I can assure you.”
With a plethora of pools, kids’ clubs, and water slides, little ones are guaranteed hours of endless fun under the watchful eye of attentive caretakers. The on-site Kids Club features a number of engaging activities, such as costume workshops, crafts, cooking, expeditions and children’s games.
Meanwhile, teenagers can retreat to their exclusive areas, buzzing with entertainment options designed to keep them engaged throughout their stay. The onsite water park oasis opens a world of fun and adventure, perfect for the young (and the young at heart) to cool off.
Or, if that is not enough to spark guests’ excitement, they can tee off at the PGA Riviera Maya by Bahia Principe 18-hole golf course, designed by the famous Robert Trend Jones II.
“I always say, if you have a heartbeat, we have a resort and a property for you,” said Perez.
As a bonus, Guests of Bahia Principe Grand Tulum also receive access to the 15 restaurants, 12 bars and five swimming pools at Bahia Principe Grand Coba.
A Family-Friendly Experience
What truly sets Bahia Principe Grand Tulum apart is its commitment to creating memories that span generations. With the resort being part of Air Canada Vacations’ Family Collection, it’s clear to see why it’s such a hit with families and multi-generational travellers.
Because it caters to so many travel styles and traveller types, the Bahia Principe Grand Tulum has been a long-time partner of Air Canada Vacations. It’s a property that Air Canada Vacations’ Marigold Frontuna, General Manager, Sales, Western Canada, says is one that is “tried, tested and true.”
“It’s very solid for any type of clientele, from families to couples and friends. Whether they want to be active or want to just relax, everyone will find something to do,” said Frontuna.
When it comes to multi-generational groups, Air Canada Vacations’ Play program keeps everyone happy by offering dedicated kids’ pools and supervised clubs. Plus, throughout the summer months, the first child between the ages of two and 12 stays and eats free, when accompanying two paying adults. This kid-friendly offer is available between 01MAY and 31OCT, 2023.
“Summer is just around the corner, kids are just wrapping up school, and soon families are going to be looking for things to do during the summer,” said Frontuna.
ACV is also offering a winter booking bonus, with savings up to $1,000 per family or $250 per person.
“It’s a great way to start thinking about the winter, because sooner or later it’s going to get cold again,” said Frontuna.
