Grand Palladium Colonial and Kantenah Resort & Spa is located in Riviera Maya in the village of Akumal. This spectacular all-inclusive resort offers accommodations within two hotels-Colonial and Kantenah. Its paradisiacal setting is embraced by lush gardens along a private beach of fine white sand bathed by the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Take a stroll around the environmentally-friendly green paths that have been carefully paved out and enjoy the impeccably kept gardens. Relax in modern and spacious rooms, pamper yourself at the state-of-the-art Spa, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and enjoy a cocktail at any of the numerous bars located around the complex.

There are four pools, one lagoon-size with Grecian columns, bubbling mini pools, and a children's pool. Two quiet pools are set in lush tropical vegetation, one beside the spa. Choose from four à la carte restaurants: Mexican, Japanese, Mediterranean, and a Steak House--and three buffet restaurants offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Additionally, guests can use any of the facilities and restaurants located in the four resorts of the complex, except those located at The Royal Suites Yucatán by Palladium.

The Baby Club (children 1- 3), the Mini Club (ages 4-12), and Black & White Juniors' Club (13+), are just some of the entertainment options offered so kids can interact with other children their own ages and from other parts of the world. While the kids are being entertained, relax at the spa or work out in the fitness center. In addition to offering exclusive and personalized services (fee), the Zentropía Palladium Spa & Wellness Center also features a gymnasium with modern exercise equipment. Practice your favorite sport: volleyball, archery, soccer, paddle, and don't miss the shows, live music, and games every night at the theater. There is also PlayStation, pool, table tennis, sand castle, treasure hunt, and karaoke tournaments.

Nature lovers will enjoy the crocodile habitat with an exhibition of their feeding. Grand Palladium Resorts in Riviera Maya have been awarded the certifications EarthCheck Silver, Travelife Gold, MARTI (Mesoamerican Reef Tourism Initiative), and the Kuoni Green Planet for their environmental policies.
