Grand Palladium Colonial & Kantenah Resorts & Spa details

“Tropical, sun-drenched and peaceful, the Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa is something special.”

The Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa is a Mexican-style masterpiece. Pillars, palm-thatch and geometric shapes are the design watchwords here. The open-sided lobby is filled with carved wood furniture, comfy club chairs and ornamental gardens that give it a tropical feel.

Elsewhere, the bedrooms are tastefully decorated in a peach, green and cream palette. Pale wood furniture, a private balcony and marble floors add a touch of elegance to an otherwise simple space. Junior Suites, meanwhile, come with nice-to-have extras like hydro-massage baths, bathrobes and slippers.

As for the beach, the hotel sits on the pillow-soft Playa Kantenah – the stretch of white sand it takes its name from. Washed by turquoise waters, it comes with sunbeds, parasols and a range of watersports that run the gamut from kayaking to snorkelling.

Sand aside, it’s the pool area that steals the limelight. There’s a huge lake-like pool that snakes its way around the sun terrace. To complete the picture, add a swim-up bar, whirlpool baths and a generous sprinkling of swaying palms.

When it comes to food and entertainment, this hotel really comes into its own. As part of the Palladium Resort, it shares everything but the Royal Suite facilities with sister hotels Grand Palladium Colonial Resort & Spa, the Grand Palladium White Sands Resort & Spa and the Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa. So means there’s a huge 21 bars, 8 à la carte and 5 buffet restaurants here to tempt you. Plus with everything from competitions to cabaret, you’re really spoilt for choice when it comes to how to spend your evenings.
