Gran Bahia Principe Akumal Resort details

Sunbathing, watersports and spa treatments top the agenda at the beachside Grand Bahia Principe Akumal.

The Grand Bahia Principe Akumal is right on the edge of a 1.5-kilometre runway of soft white sand. When you’re not dozing on the sunloungers or sipping drinks from the beach bar here, you can be kayaking, windsurfing or using jet skis in the sea. The hotel’s facilities amass away from the shore. There are 2 swimming pools to choose from, one of which rolls out like a lazy river. There’s a spa next to the beach, where you can get treatments like curing mud massages. And there’s an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones II on your doorstep. As for the dining scene, the buffet eatery menu mixes international and local dishes. And you can dine in any of the à la cartes around the complex, which serve everything from Italian food to fresh fish.
