To achieve our goals of creating the most extraordinary vacation and entertainment experiences, Grupo Vidanta controls every aspect of its developments, including creating and operating its own internal construction group.
To date, the company has built seven luxury resort hotel brands and seven mega-resort-style vacation destinations in Mexico. The construction group has also developed over 2,000 vacation homes and the first privately built international airport in Mexico. The group is continually recognized for the amazing quantity of properties that it develops in a given year.
In addition to hotels, the group also builds all of the restaurants, bars, entertainment centers, spas, pools, walkways, lakes, roads and other infrastructure at its resorts. Its hotel brands include Grand Luxxe, The Grand Bliss, The Grand Mayan, The Bliss, Mayan Palace, Ocean Breeze, and Sea Garden. Its real estate brands include Mayan Island, Mayan Lakes, Central Park, La Jolla de Cortes and La Jolla de Los Cabos.
Most recently, in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, the construction group of Grupo Vidanta completed the Cirque du Soleil Theater at Vidanta Riviera Maya, where Mexico’s first resident Cirque du Soleil show, Joya, will be housed. The theater is a marvel of contemporary architecture and innovative sustainable building techniques that helped to protect the Mayan jungle and surrounding ecosystems.
Green Building Practices at WorkBold
Cirque du Soleil Theater at Vidanta Riviera Maya
All of Grupo Vidanta’s developments and construction practices reflect a green philosophy and employ sustainable building practices from the planning stage to project execution. Grupo Vidanta’s latest construction project, the Cirque du Soleil Theater, exemplifies the company’s commitment to environmental protection. The theater—recipient of Obras Magazine Building Project of 2015 Award—garnered recognition for its revolutionary design and pristine landscaping, as well as the extreme dedication to ecological preservation throughout its development and construction process.
Eco-Conscious Practices for the Cirque du Soleil Theater
- 80% of the land surrounding the theater was preserved as raw jungle.
- The remaining area was conserved with care: every plant affected by construction or development was rescued, relocated, and replanted elsewhere, along with hundreds of new trees.
- The eco-friendly materials used in the construction of the theater echo Grupo Vidanta’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
- Local woods were used for every decoration and pergola on the grounds.
- The roads and parking lots around the theater were built entirely from 100% permeable ecological concrete, ensuring the the local watershed was minimally affected.
