REAL RESORTS said it will open the 281-room, adults-only Royal Cancun in January. Situated in the middle of Cancuns hotel zone, the all-suite property will be marketed as a luxury resort with a casually elegant atmosphere, modern amenities and classic Mexican design elements. Designed by Mexican architect Jokin Luisa Donnay, the oceanfront property will cost $55 million to build and will feature the brands signature Royal Service program in about 80% of rooms. Among other upgrades, Royal Service includes a dedicated concierge, upgraded room amenities and a welcome gift. The resort will feature six room types, including what Real describes as Cancuns only swim-up master suite. The resort will have six restaurants, a spa and 3,000 square feet of meetings space.
