The distinctive new look and feel of Sirenis Premium Travelers Club is a perfect mixture between privilege, flexibility and choice, which was also brought into the new interior design of the suites.
From the moment members step through the door, they will be enchanted and captured by interiors that exude contemporary design and that are mixed with sundry comfort touches. It has really taken a premium feel.
The project will likely move through at two stages, until the remodel reaches full completion. On the first stage we remodeled a complete building of Club Premium Mini Suites.
The plush rugs and cozy sofa in the living room, sharp lines and white-blue of the abstract paintings add a touch of cool ambience to the suite while the bedrooms are well-appointed with elegant snowy bedding and modern furniture. The bathroom displays luxury with rain showers and exquisite finishing.
The SPT touch is felt through the patterned textures in the suites and through the bed’s sophisticated headboard, adding a perfect balance of modernity and proud of ownership.
You’ll notice the new colors and soft textures of the translucent window coverings that bring the green and blue feel of the landscape in from the outside.
Each Club suite, for SPT members, is very well equipped, including a Touchscreen computer with internet access, allowing guests to be one click away from their beloved ones, communicated with their business, to make their stay even more enjoyable and convenient. Technology is a key feature of the refurbished suites.
“We are enthusiastic to present the new suites to our members and acquire the first feedback on our new look and innovative design,” said Luis González, Operations Manager of Sirenis Punta Cana Resort Casino & Aquagames. “Even though the Club suites are only five years old, we are fortunate to be able to offer a fresh suite design for our SPT members.”
The Club Premium Rooms and Club Premium Connecting Suites enhancements completes the second phase of the refurbishment programme, which started in May, 2015 with the renovation of the Club Premium Mini Suites and will be finalized by mid-November 2015. The hotel has also modernized the lobby, while also opening the authentic American restaurant Route 66.
Our goal is to have all this work completed by November 2015. Visit us and watch the progress as our new look unfolds! For more information and to make a reservation, head to the website sirenispremiumtravelers.com or call the Sirenis Service Center (SSC).
Though much smaller than the Tulum temple, the Xaac temple/lighthouse is its lonely mate, located in our small inlet (caleta) at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort and Spa.
The caleta is composed of a pair of bays surrounding a small island-like shelf of limestone with an ancient Mayan temple: Xaac (pronounced “zah-ahk”, which means “fear” in Mayan).
On October 9, 2014 the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH, National Institute of Anthropology and History) certified the Mayan ruin, Xaac, as an authentic part of the rich history of the area that surrounds our resort.
INAH is a federal government organization founded in 1939 that enables the research, conservation, protection and spreading of the pre-historical and paleontological heritage of Mexico.
The Xaac temple, was used as a light house facility for merchants navigating the maritime routes with their trading-products from Central America to the Gulf of Mexico during the Post classic –late period (AD 1200 -1550).
The layer is cracked into numerous pieces of rock from which a current of fresh water flows into both bays. A cenote, or fresh water cave, exists under the temple while growing forth from the rocks is a garden of live brain coral. In this unique place a Mayan microcosm is presented to the observer in an immaculate setting.
The main room´s ceiling is vaulted and its interior and exterior was protected with stucco. The decoration element is a simple ledge; traces indicate a previous existence of a sculptor representing a deity on the top of the ruin.
In the interior of the temple, remnant of paintings in blue, red, orange, yellow and black can be witnessed as the doorframe and lintel´s design.
On your next visit to Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya don’t forget to climb the rocks to explore it! It is also a charming backdrop for photos as it tells stories about its ancient past.
It’s been a magical award season for the Sirenis Corporation as they proudly accept every RCI accolade possible on behalf of their Caribbean properties! RCI is the vacation ownership industry’s largest exchange company.
Service, service, service…. In the hospitality industry, customer satisfaction is a top priority and for the first time in history, both Sirenis properties received RCI’s Excellence in Service Award. The recognition, presented to less than 4% of the 4500 RCI hotels worldwide, was awarded for the third consecutive year to Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya and, drum roll please… Sirenis Punta Cana was the first hotel ever to receive the award in the Dominican Republic!
To give this outstanding achievement the considerable attention it deserves, Mr. Luis Gonzalez, Director of Operations at Sirenis Punta Cana Casino & Aquagames, went all out by hosting an elaborate celebration at the prestigious Dux CapCana night club, complete with breathtaking views and a truly unique ambiance. In honor of the special occasion, a prestigious guest list included the presence of Mr. Ernesto Veloz, the Director of Punta Cana Hotel Association, Sirenis Corporate Directors and various media reporters. The elegant black and white affair was a testament to Sirenis’ corporate home in Spain and its world famous Ibiza party life.
With such success, it’s hard to believe that the accomplishments of your home resorts didn’t end there. Both also earned the RCI Gold Crown, RCI Premier All-Inclusive and RCI Top Producer awards.
Grand Sirenis has been designated a Gold Crown resort by RCI since its affiliation with the exchange company began in 2010. The distinction indicates the resort is in the top tier of the RCI resort collection, delivering the highest level of service and amenities. The Premium All-Inclusive distinction demonstrates that both beachfront resorts consistently deliver the highest quality all-inclusive amenities and unparalleled service that go beyond the typical all-inclusive resort. It’s no question that after winning these awards, both Caribbean resorts also received the RCI Top Producer Award for outstanding sales performance.
Not to outdone by the extravagant celebration at Sirenis Punta Cana, Vanessa Costa, Director of Operations at Grand Sirenis, put together an even groovier event to celebrate the Mexico properties’ record-breaking successes. A roof top party, complete with a Flower Power theme also in honor of the Sirenis corporation headquarters, featured a 360 degree view of the ocean that was perfect for viewing the evening’s fairy-tale like sunset and full moon. Highlights of the unforgettable night included taking photos from behind a retro van topped with suitcases describing the theme of the night… peace, love, family, friends & vacation! Touching family videos were also shown as a surprise to the winners of the Top Producer awards. These were the individuals whose performances, throughout 2014, stood out from the rest.
“I am very happy to see how the resorts’ various teams from maids to corporate directors have engaged and worked together throughout the year to accomplish the goals of earning these prestigious awards. It has been a great journey and a new milestone for our Sirenis brand,” said Grace Sepulveda, Director of Sirenis Premium Travelers International. “The energy and ambience of the events were extraordinary and well-deserved. I am confident that the distinctions granted to us by RCI represent the quality of service that our guests and members receive and solidify our brand’s dedication to achieving the highest level of guest satisfaction.”
It’s going to be tough to top the achievements of 2015, but the Sirenis Corporation is determined to continue enhancing their already exceptional level of service to members and guests and to continue knocking these award seasons out of the park!
Just as uplifting as the Breakfast with Santa was at Sirenis Punta Cana, the season of giving continued with a Breakfast with the Three Wise Men at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya.
As part of the annual event, children from the Akumal local public elementary school were invited to spend the morning at the Caribbean resort to enjoy a delicious meal, games and fun as well as receive gifts that were donated by SPT co-workers and even members!
The event started early in the day when the hotel’s transportation bus arrived at the local town of Akumal to pick-up the children and bring them back to the resort.
The breakfast was hosted at one of the resort’s themed restaurants open exclusively for the kids; and the space, lit up with gleeful decorations, was alive with holiday cheer as the children participated in activities created just for them by the hotel’s animation team. Taking a picture with the three wise men was the highlight of the day, as well as the children dance competition!
“To put smiles on the children’s faces is priceless. We, at the hotel, begin preparation for this event months in advance and we do it not only to help out our community, but also to share in the excitement ourselves. In the end, it was hard to tell whether it was the hotel staff or the kids who felt the most joy that day!” said Vanessa Costa, Director of Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya.
The Breakfast with the Three Wise Men was a gratifying experience for both children and adults, and this year was the best yet! It is a pleasure for hotel staff to welcome students from the wonderful community that surrounds them. We already can’t wait for next year!
Every year, SPT and hotel staff at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya and Sirenis Punta Cana go above and beyond to spread holiday cheer to our valued members. Both Caribbean properties boast breathtaking decorations and host a wide array of activities, allowing guest to enjoy the magic of the season while relaxing in paradise!
In addition to the festive decorations and jubilant activities, one of our favorite holiday traditions is spreading joy by giving back to our local communities. On December 16th, Sirenis Punta Cana hosted “Breakfast with Santa” where over one hundred children, teachers and parents from the nearby elementary school were invited to spend a day at Sirenis Aquagames, the on property water park. At this event, held annually, a delicious full breakfast was served while Santa visited with the children, took photos with them, and handed out special gifts.
“The event is a rewarding experience for all of us. The children are able to enjoy the water park and visit with Santa, while our day is made brighter by witnessing the smiles that light up their faces. This is what the holidays are all about!” said Grace Sepulveda, Director of Sirenis Premium Travelers Club.
As it truly is the most wonderful time of the year, we at Sirenis Premium Travelers also want to extend our warmest wishes to you and yours. Click on the link http://vimeo.com/113319239 to see our staff, located around the globe, wish you a very happy holiday!
Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa recently hosted the grand opening of its ecosirenis nursery. The nursery, named Vivero, exhibits five ecosystems featuring the 22 different species of vegetation the resort is home to. Guided tours of the conservation area are now offered to guests to educate them and plant a respect for nature in their hearts. Visual displays of Mayan traditions are placed along the winding paths of lush greenery to honor the resort’s ties to one of the most environmentally conscious civilizations!
During the exciting opening, there were rituals performed by a Mayan shaman and dancers. Participants also planted the first tree in the SPT Members Children Garden. Members’ children are encouraged to plant seeds next to rocks showing their names so that each time families visit their home away from home at Sirenis, they can check on its growth!
The opening of Vivero was only a kick-off to several upcoming Ecosirenis projects. Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya has since introduced eco-tours that allow guests yet another opportunity to explore, up-close and personal, the awe-inspiring environment and wildlife that inhabit the region. In addition to the variety of vegetation that thrive on property, the resort’s beaches are also populated by various animals including the Black Iguana, the Cinnamon Hummingbird, and the Social Flycatcher. Guests can participate in the eco-tours either on foot or by bike.
We will keep you posted on more Eco Sirenis projects to come as Sirenis Hotels & Resorts continues to further their environmentally friendly efforts and stay true to the in-touch-with-nature principles of their ancient Mayan ancestors.
Dolphin Discovery introduces its latest marine attraction, Dolphin Discovery Akumal, to our property! Just the thing to enhance your next vacation, the dolphinarium newly located at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa, presents you and your family with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn about, view, and interact with Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins.

This seafront setting is home to four of them – Charly, Athos, Gigio and Porthos – that are part of a successful breeding program call Miracle. The program is responsible for fifty percent of the dolphin population and a reason why the company is considered a leader in preservation of the species.
“We are very happy about this collaboration with the world’s leading company of dolphinariums. Swimming with dolphins is an unforgettable one-of-a-kind vacation experience for resort guests and represents a bonus to any guest staying at our hotel,” commented Don Abel Matutes, Sirenis Hotels & Resorts President.
