No matter what your specific vacation goals may be, the Marival Distinct Luxury Residences let you define your own version of paradise. Work-weary warriors love Melange World Spa, the resort's full-service relaxation destination featuring an international menu of treatments and pampering options, including anti-aging facials, body wraps, exfoliations, hydrotherapy and deep-tissue massages.

Take the complimentary golf cart ride to the VIP Beach Club at Marival Residences Luxury Resort, where a private beach, a beach concierge, lounge chairs and plush beach towels beckon. Snacks and refreshing cocktails are served at the beach every day. Guests who prefer pools over a beach can find their bliss at one of the resort's three pools. Whether it's the main pool, the infinity pool or the ever-popular indoor pool at Insu Sky Lounge, Marival Residences Luxury Resort has the perfect spot for a refreshing dip.

When snacks just won't cut it anymore, dig in to casual cuisine at Lemon Grass, delivered among flowing fountains, or tuck into international specialties at Ommagio, set amidst trees, gardens and ponds. Romantic dinners reach their zenith with rooftop dining at Insu Sky Lounge. When you dine at Insu, stick around after your meal because the real fun starts late and won't stop until well past midnight.

Get your heart pumpin' at the fully equipped fitness center. And did we mention the 24-hour room service when you just can't sleep without a snack?

    Great for kids and adults

    I’m going to try to keep this review a bit unique. I agree with all of the pluses other reviewers have commented on - food, service, drinks, large condo type rooms, etc like no other! Pros - kids club - that’s why sometimes it seems like there aren’t any kids around. They’re having the time of their lives in the kids club and the parents are relaxing by the pool. Can’t say enough about the kids club and the two lovely ladies working there. One day it took me two times trying to get the kids to come for lunch because they were having so much fun!! There are themed days, cooking classes,TONS of different crafts and my kids fav - face painting. My husband and I greatly appreciated the relaxing adult time we had. Please pass along my thanks to them. I believe their names were Bianca and Josephine - cabana! We rented a large one at the beach. Big thanks to Carlos for setting us up. This was a highlight of the trip for us. - the pool. Felix was amazing. What more can I say?! The service was also great for food and drinks. - the sister resort was also fun for some extra activities, loud nightly shows and the vendor market but we always loved coming back to Distinct. Plus the people running the golf cart shuttle were so much fun! My daughter loved sitting in the front seat with them. - there’s something about having your fridge stocked with beer and turn down service that makes us feel special - loved Insu Sky bar and room service for supper. Usually ate at D-Stock or Lemongrass for lunch. Loved these places We were also talked into a time share presentation but we didn’t feel pressured into it. We had a lovely morning touring the other resort and it was informative. As promised we listened and never felt any high pressure. It was quite nice actually. I would recommend it. Plus we got some Marival dollars to use which we used on the cabana and went a little crazy in the gift store. Cons - none. You should book this place now.

    Distinct Luxury condos

    Very modern up scale hotel with condo's for room which were huge. We had 1400 sq ft room with Ocean view, 2 bathrooms and large separate bedroom. The living area was very large and it had a full kitchen. Great space to stay in for 8 days. Overall the hotel was very clean, organized and the wait staff were great and always available. Food was very good and there was a big enough selection. The crowd at the hotel was not as large as the sister Emotions resort, so crowds were never an issue. Drinks were strong if you asked for them strong, otherwise as expected. Plenty of activities to do. Would definitely go back, great place !
