Vivid Grand Island is located about 10 minutes from the Cancun hotel zone and adjacent to the Dreams Grand Island, which will open later this year. Together, the two properties will offer 19 culinary concepts, a 26,000-square-foot spa with 25 treatment rooms, multiple swimming pools and a beach club.

The high-rise resort features 400 suites ranging from 570 to over 3,000 square feet in size. Offering bay, golf course or ocean views, all rooms include balconies.

For those looking to stay active during their stay, the resort offers a rooftop fitness center with group fitness classes and guided maps for guests preferring to run outdoors.

The opening of this resort complements Hyatt’s expanding footprint in Latin America and the Caribbean, which includes the newly opened family-friendly Sunscape Dominicus La Romana, Secrets Tides Resort & Spa in the Uvero Alto beach in the Dominican Republic and the Secrets Playa Blanca Costa Mujeres in Costa Mujeres, Mexico.

Hyatt’s expansion in this market will continue till 2025, with upcoming openings such as Breathless Puerto Vallarta, Park Hyatt Los Cabos, Hyatt Centric Santo Domingo and Secrets St. Lucia Resort & Spa.

Hyatt has been focusing its attention on strengthening its luxury all-inclusive resort segment and recently launched a new, ultra-luxury brand, Impression by Secrets. Hyatt is aiming to expand its Inclusive Collection into Europe, with two debuts this year — Zoetry Halkidiki Resort & Spa in Greece and Dreams Madeira Resort, Spa & Marina in Portugal.

Dreams Resorts & Spas is slated to open two resorts in Mexico this year — Dreams Grand Island in Cancun and Dreams Estrella Del Mar Mazatlan, a 350-room property, which also marks a new destination for the brand.
