Tides Riviera Maya Gets a Viceroy Makeover

The beautiful Tides Riviera Maya resort in Mexico has just emerged from a multimillion-dollar renovation project re-branded as the Viceroy Riviera Maya, joining other posh Viceroy properties in Santa Monica, Palm Springs, Miami, Anguilla, Snowmass and Abu Dhabi.

Raising the resort to new levels of luxury, Viceroy gave the oceanfront all-villa property an infusion of opulence while maintaining its casually elegant Caribbean vibe. Eleven new villas with plunge pools, including the resort’s first beachfront and ocean view villas, were built, bringing the property’s total number of accommodations to 41; the original 29 were given a makeover as well, including the ultra-exclusive Presidential Villa.

A new casual beachfront restaurant, the Coral Grill, featuring a Mexican-Mediterranean menu cooked on wood-burning grills, was added to complement the existing La Marea restaurant, now relaunched as a destination for fine dining. A cozy new Library Lounge also adds to the entertainment options at the resort.
