More than ever before, Cancun is known as a hot spot for all inclusive resorts that make planning a Mexico vacation easy. But at Oasis Hotels & Resorts, “all inclusive” can also be perfectly tailored to fit business meetings and special events.

With five different hotels in Cancun’s hotel zone, Oasis Hotels and Resorts offers a variety of choices for groups. Set among 32 beautifully landscaped acres, the Grand Oasis Cancun and Oasis Cancun are among the company’s best options for groups. Both resorts share the same grounds, and combined they have more than 1,700 guest rooms. Groups can plan special events and dinners at any of 17 restaurants and 15 bars, indulge at the spa and multiple swimming pools or try their skills at the tennis courts and nine-hole golf course. Impressive live entertainment is featured nightly; among the best is the Birdmen of Oasis Cancun, a spectacular, Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatic performance that fills the main hotel atrium.

At the recently renamed Oasis Sens (formerly the Sens del Mar), a beautiful 388-room property that caters to adults, guests can toast at the new Sunset Bar, which offers among the best views of the sun setting over Nichupte lagoon. Five restaurants and eight bars provide interesting settings for a variety of events.

Groups traveling with children should consider the Grand Oasis Palm and Oasis Palm, two adjacent properties that are decidedly family-friendly, with an extensive children’s program that allows the kids to be entertained while the grown-ups are conducting business. The conference center can host up to 400 people in the Grand Salon, while four additional breakout rooms provide additional meeting space.

All of the Oasis properties can offer custom-designed menus and themed parties, and — perhaps most importantly — whichever property a group chooses, the gorgeous sand and Caribbean Sea are never more than a few steps away.
