Velas Resorts History
Committed to developing unique resorts in premier destinations with exceptional design, award-winning amenities and the finest service throughout Mexico, Velas Resorts opened its first property, Velas Vallarta, in 1989. Fourteen years later, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit opened its doors, redefining the definition of luxury and All-Inclusive hospitality. In 2005, Casa Velas was added to the collection to provide a tranquil, private ambiance for adults only in the Marina Vallarta area. Grand Velas Riviera Maya opened in November of 2008 in the tropical oasis of the Caribbean, just fifteen minutes from Playa del Carmen. At the end of 2016, Grand Velas Los Cabos was inaugurated, a resort that presents the latest interpretation of luxury and style on the Baja Peninsula. With this latest addition, Velas Resorts continues to expand and optimize its signature brand of hospitality.
