Countdown to the Grand Opening of Garza Blanca Cancun

Cancun is buzzing with excitement, as TAFER Hotels & Resorts prepares for the Grand Opening of Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Cancun in the last days of 2021. The much-anticipated addition to the oceanfront on the north side of Cancun, in a quiet area away from the Hotel Zone, is dazzling luxury travelers, celebrities, and the hospitality industry as a whole.

Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Cancun is TAFER´s third Garza Blanca Resort with plans for a fourth one to open in the Riviera Maya. All Garza Blanca Resorts bring the signature sophistication, contemporary design, and gourmet dining that the luxury brand is known for each with a unique design perfectly suited to the landscapes around where they are situated.

Four bedroom loft suite

Garza Blanca Cancun has been on a soft open since December 2020 with 162 contemporary suites. Upon completion in Q4 of this year, Garza Blanca Cancun will offer a total of 452 suites and penthouses from the Junior Suites to the ultra-luxurious 3-and 4-Bedroom Penthouse Lofts. All the suites from the One Bedroom category and higher, include a full-size kitchen, and spacious dining and living areas, so you can enjoy every comfort of home. The resort’s brilliant horseshoe design offers guests unparalleled ocean views from most suites, which also feature expansive terraces with hammocks. Once you check-in, you will have a dedicated butler assigned to your room who will act as your personal concierge throughout your stay to book tours and activities, restaurant reservations, and give you advice on things to do in the destination, as well as help you with any special requests.

Otto Pareto, the General Manager of Garza Blanca Cancun, said, “I am anticipating the Grand Opening of our brand-new Garza Blanca Resort as much as anyone. I could not be prouder to belong to such a prestigious brand and to be leading our talented team of staff as we prepare for the Grand Opening of this high-end resort, which will set a new standard for the luxury hospitality industry, not only with regards to the innovative hotel design both inside and out, which is something to behold, but also because of the stellar amenities and facilities, which elevate the very concept of luxury. ¨

The Lobby

The lobby immerses you in a wave of elegance. As soon as you step into the lobby to check-in, you will notice its remarkable double-height interior, with an opulent, cascading gold ceiling with twinkling lights and a glitzy chandelier. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors reveal picturesque views of the stunning Caribbean Sea. The walls and flooring feature clean white lines with striking color accents. The elegant decor makes a statement with plush velvet sofas and mismatched armchairs in neutral hues with key pieces in bolder tones accentuated by colorful throw pillows and decorative pieces, that work to pull the mixed furniture pieces together. But more important than the elegant design, is the level of service you will receive from the welcoming team of staff. Just beyond the lobby, there is a Lobby Bar, which is the perfect place to chat and relax while enjoying a refreshing beverage.

There is also a Hospitality Suite for your convenience where you can sit and comfortably relax if your room is not ready or if you are waiting to be picked up. The Hospitality Suite has a TV, pool table, and computers.

Restaurants: Coming Soon!

Currently Garza Blanca Cancun offers 3 dining options at Blanca Blue, the Food Truck, and the Snack Bar. In time for the Grand Opening, the resort will offer an additional four full-service restaurants and a Gourmet Hall, including:

Blanca Blue Restaurant

The high ceilings feature a cluster of floating pendants made from hand blown glass, which serve to both capture attention and light up the room. Hiroshi also features a sushi bar lit up from above by branches of interconnected lighting in geometric shapes. All that is topped off by an impressive mural of Mount Fuji, the highest Japanese mountain, reminding diners that there is little limit on how high you can climb.

The design of Bocados Steak House is based around the concept of fire and smoke. Bocados specializes in dry-aged steaks and as soon as you enter the space, you will feel part of an energetic atmosphere. Bocados is a portion of lava on your table. The design is a mix of black gradients, wood textures, porcelain, and gold. Clusters of metallized gold suspension lights hang from the ceiling giving off a warm and comfortable glow. The impressive pillars represent lava fountains, while the Bocados logo that greets you behind the hostess stand, represents a river of fiery lava. The menu promises melt-in-your mouth steaks, seafood dishes, and a variety of vegetarian dishes including grilled veggies and pasta. There is also a sizeable terrace where you can enjoy al fresco dining and fresh ocean breezes.
