MIAMI, Fla. (April 27, 2016) – Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations- is pleased to announce a new resort concept located within signature property, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun. Comprised of three distinct sections – Moon Grand, Sunrise and Nizuc – Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort’s Moon Grand is poised to become a luxury hotel within the sprawling, AAA Four Diamond resort upon the completion of an ambitious, multimillion dollar enhancement project. Currently undergoing the 450 million-dollar evolution, which will transform its already luxurious offerings to the highest possible standards, Moon Grand will offer more spacious and luxurious accommodations, exclusive access to premier dining establishments, the convenience of close proximity to the property’s most astounding attractions and much more.
The announcement was made during Mexico’s most important industry event, Tianguis Turistico, where various brand executives are expected to meet with government officials, industry members and VIPs. Slated for completion by the end of 2016, expansion highlights include the addition of more than 900 guest rooms, a new expansive lobby, seven outdoor pools, including two adults-only swimming pools with a live DJ spinning poolside beats, five swim-up bars, an elaborate beach club, children’s water park, gymnasium, Awe-Spa®, more than 80,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces, a bowling alley with six lanes, ultra-trendy teen lounge, chic nightclub, 16 food and beverage outlets and more.
“Palace Resorts invites guests to “Live the Palace Life,” a concept that reflects the unmatched offerings we provide at each of our resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. The new Moon Grand will take the concept and our offering to the next level, by creating a world that transcends convention and expectations. Moon Grand offers guests the luxury and tailored touch of a boutique experience coupled with the grandeur of a world-class resort destination,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts. “While the company will continue to expand to new markets with exciting new properties, Palace Resorts will further cultivate our core portfolio as is made evident with the ongoing enhancement of our signature property in Cancun. We look forward to sharing our vision for Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort with future guests and the influential attendees of Tianguis Turistico.”
“The new Moon Grand will offer an unprecedented collection of curated experiences that will appeal to a variety of unique markets,” said Sandor Winkler, Chief Development Officer for Palace Resorts. “Moon Grand is Palace Resorts’ response to the underserved luxury family segment. The premiere resort within a resort concept will provide fantastic, upgraded and spacious facilities that can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.”
Envisioned by Palace Resorts’ exclusive designer, Francois Frossard, the newly expanded Moon Grand will offer guests a new standard in luxury all-inclusive resort accommodations with elegantly modern décor. While the versatile Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort will continue to allure discerning travelers from all walks of life, the new Moon Grand section will appeal to sophisticates seeking a tailored luxury lifestyle experience. Beyond positioning Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort as Cancun’s definitive entertainment resort, Palace Resorts seeks to transform the AAA Four Diamond property to rival destination hotels on a global scale.
Further emphasizing the brand’s ability to cater to a variety of travelers with distinctive needs and desires, Moon Grand will also offer a serene alternative within the lively property and include two adults-only swimming pools.
With more than eight new dining destinations, foodies and finicky diners will agree there is truly something for every palate at the new Moon Grand. Moon Grand will incorporate an unprecedented variety of flavors including gourmet Asian, traditional Italian, mouth-watering Caribbean, decadent French, savory Lebanese and authentic Mexican among others, to the resort’s already unrivaled culinary portfolio. From the Florentine color scheme and exposed brick columns of the new Italian “ristorante” to the sublime Parisian sophistication of Moon Grand’s French eatery, each new restaurant is being designed to transport guests to the respective destination of origin and ensure the satisfaction of even the most discerning of gourmands.
As with all Palace Resorts properties, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort’s Grand section will feature only the finest, top-shelf liquors and premium-ingredient cuisine consisting of the highest quality standards. Additionally, Moon Grand will also offer 24-hour room service to valued guests seeking everything from a late night snack to a full course meal.
Grand Meetings & Events
Whether seeking the ideal venue to host a spectacular destination wedding or an unforgettable corporate affair, the newly enhanced Moon Grand will offer more than 80,000 square feet of versatile meeting and event space that seamlessly blend cutting-edge style and convenient functionality. Expected to further elevate the brand’s already unmatched event capabilities, renovation additions will provide Moon Grand visitors with multiple meeting rooms, a theater with room for nearly 1,000 guests, ballrooms, exhibition areas, outdoor spaces and more, complete with the industry’s most innovative technology and audiovisual equipment.
Grand Fun for Every Age
Upon completion of the extensive transformation of Moon Grand this December, the property will offer children of all ages and adults seeking to unleash their inner kid the opportunity to engage in a variety of attractions and diversions not seen before in the destination. Beyond the addition of two Palace Resorts family-friendly staples – a kid’s dream club “The Playroom,” and a sleekly designed teens club stocked with today’s video games, a colossal concession stand and so much more – guests of all ages will have hours of endless indoor and outdoor entertainment at their disposal via a massive water park and six-lane bowling alley.
A testament to the brand’s guest-centric approach of offering unexpected amenities and attractions, the new bowling alley will transport guests to an upscale entertainment expanse complete with six lanes, bar and lounge with ultramodern sound system, vivid lighting and dramatic design by Frossard. Poolside, guests will be clamoring for a turn on any of the new water park’s thrilling slides and play areas, specifically designed for children. An immense water destination for splashing, sliding and sunning, the new water park is just one of the many new attractions Moon Grand guests will be raving about.
When the sun sets, adults will experience why Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort is truly Cancun’s entertainment destination. In addition to eight bars and lounges, the new Moon Grand section will offer guests the option of choosing between two on-property nightclubs, with the addition of a new expansive nightlife destination. Moon Grand’s new “Unique” nightclub will feature live entertainment, specialty cocktails and glamorous décor also designed by Frossard.
Regardless of a guest’s age, the new Moon Grand is certain to provide a platform for extraordinary experiences the entire family will appreciate.

Rounding out the total Palace-lifestyle, Moon Grand’s new 76,875 square foot Awe-Spa® will feature more than 60 spa suites, a hydrotherapy circuit, plunge pools, steam and sauna rooms, and more. The resort’s second spa will offer inventive treatments and a fully immersive experience, curated for tranquil rejuvenation.
