Cirque du Soleil Joya Show Opens

This gives Cirque du Soleil enthusiast a more intimate feel for the award winning show. The show is located almost in the middle of Playa Del Carmen and Cancun and is visited by tourists from both areas. 

Guest of the show can enjoy dinner with the show if selected, or enjoy the show with drinks. The Joya show is one of the cultural gems that the Riviera Maya has to offer visitors as we are glad to see it open again.

What the resort is doing to get ready for guests

The new marketing challenge in this age of Covid-19 is making people feel comfortable and safe while traveling. Vidanta Resorts has implemented new and thorough standards to ensure the well-being of guests without compromising the experience. 

Employee Standards

A new Safety and Sanitation Department has been created that will oversee the implementation, supervision, and compliance of all the new protocols created in close collaboration with national and international health authorities. These procedures start with Vidanta’s team of employees, who completely sanitize upon arriving at work each day. All employees are equipped with face masks, carry hand sanitizer, are required to wash their hands at least once every 30 minutes, and respect social distancing measures at all times.

New Cleaning Standards at Vidanta

At the resort, hospital-grade sanitizers are used to clean all high-contact surfaces at minimum of every 30 minutes. These surfaces include railings, telephones, door handles, pens, counters, tables, armchairs, chairs, bathrooms, and more. All internal transportation vehicles are completely disinfected between each trip, air conditioning systems are sanitized on an ongoing basis, and automatic doors and automated hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed throughout the resort.

As part of the Vidanta Extraordinary Standards program, all guest luggage is sanitized upon arrival, and new heightened housekeeping measures have been implemented. All housekeeping staff use gloves and focus their attention on rigorously cleaning beds, furniture, televisions, remote controls, mirrors, kitchenettes, bars, bathrooms, light switches, showers, tubs, floors, and hair dryers, to name just a few. Additionally, all housekeeping carts are disinfected before and after each shift and all linens are changed daily.

Overnight, all public spaces—including lobbies, shops, restaurants, and spas—are fogged with hospital-grade sanitization sprayers. Capacity has been reduced in all indoor public spaces, as well as resort transportation, beach clubs, pool areas, and elevators, to allow for compliance with social distancing measures. All Vidanta Resorts also are proud to offer abundant open space designed to seamlessly integrate with nature. Because of this, Grupo Vidanta is proud to offer some of the most square footage per guest of any resort in Mexico, and even the world.

Restaurant and Dinning Safeguards at Vidanta Reosrts

Additional measures have been implemented at all resort restaurants to ensure complete safety when receiving, storing, preparing, and serving food. All kitchen staff strictly adhere to the Cristal Food Management Standards and are audited regularly to ensure compliance. Digital menus are now available through QR technology or using the Vidanta Resorts App. All restaurant tables are completely disinfected between guests, and take-away service is now available at every resort restaurant.

Finally, a no-cash policy has been implemented throughout all resorts so that all payments can be made easily at check out to avoid using cash or credit cards throughout the stay.
