Two new resorts have been approved for the island of Isla Mujeres just off Cancun shores.
The Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources has authorized two new projects for the municipality of Isla Mujeres. The first of the two is a hotel project by Riu called Riu Costa Mujeres in the continental area between Cancun and Isla Mujeres.
The mega-project is a 753-room hotel that will be built on Península Chacmuchuch of Punta Sam in the municipality of Isla Mujeres (mainland). The finished project will consist of swimming pools, gardens, restaurants, plazas, sun decks and a parking area.
The Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources also gave the green light to the Grand Palladium Mujeres Resort & Spa. The construction project is estimated to cost $227 million US and will span across 148 hectares of land.
Once complete, the Grand Palladium Mujeres will offer 450 rooms, a plaza, Jacuzzis, restaurants, bars, spas, a fitness center and private beach club. There will also be sports areas with miniature golf and a climbing wall. The hotel will also include artificial water channels for recreational use that will allow guests to move throughout the resort on boats.
According to the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone, the project has been planned to completely preserve and protect the natural sand dunes and mangroves found in the region. Both coastal and lowland forest will also be preserved.
