We may be growing with new hotels and new destinations, but you can’t forget the originals and they haven’t forgotten you which is why Secrets Aura Cozumel and Now Jade Riviera Cancun are to undergo enhancements!
Starting on September 24, 2015 and will wrap up December 14, 2015, Secrets Aura Cozumel will be building 30 Preferred Club Ocean View Junior Suites. However, as a result, the current pools on the Solarium level and private plunge pools will be removed and will affect the following room categories: Solarium & Pool Suite Ocean View and the Preferred Club Solarium & Pool Suite Ocean View. Not only are they enhancing the rooms. but the Sky Bar will also be expanded to accommodate up to 116 resort guests and refreshed to feature new bright decor and a modern design. The Desires Music Lounge and the Plaza Area will also be upgraded with new furniture and a luxurious atmosphere offering guests an added place to sit and relax. All remaining restaurants and bars will be available to guests during the enhancement period.
Starting on September 21, 2015 Now Jade Riviera Cancun will begin working on the main lobby area, lobby patio and the spa, all with minimal impact to guests. Beginning September 28, 2015, the windows of the lobby will be replaced, which will result in some noise during the daytime hours, however, we will ensure there is no impact on guests during the evening. This enhancement project also includes renovations to the spa and fitness center. Please be advised, spa and fitness center services will be available during this time, but will be located in an alternate area. All enhancements should be finished by November 22nd, 2015, right before those holiday getaways!
