Cozumel, Q.R. — A $75 million USD project for a new beach club on the island of Cozumel has been announced. The new Royal Beach Club Cozumel, by Royal Caribbean, is set to open next year.

The next ultimate beach day experience in Royal Caribbean International’s destination lineup, Royal Beach Club Cozumel, will welcome vacationers in 2026, the company said in a press release.

The addition to the Royal Beach Club Collection will complement all that Cozumel, Mexico has to offer and feature experiences for everyone, from striking beaches and pools to private cabanas, swim-up bars, a variety of dining spots and more.

Royal Caribbean International is putting a new beach club experience on the map. The world’s largest cruise line has announced the expansion of its destination lineup with Royal Beach Club Cozumel in Mexico, opening in 2026.

At the future location of the beach club along the western coast of the island, Royal Caribbean Group President and CEO Jason Liberty and Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley revealed plans for the next experience in the Royal Beach Club Collection while alongside the secretary of tourism of Quintana Roo in Mexico, Bernardo Cueto Riestra, and the Mayor of Cozumel, Juanita Alonso.

“We are delighted to build on our longstanding partnership with the local community and government to continue bringing our guests to Mexico,” said Jason Liberty, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean Group.

“The expansion of our destination offerings aligns with the growing global demand for the ultimate vacation experiences and enables our guests to connect with the beauty of local cultures and people in the places they visit.”

“The anticipation for what’s next when it comes to Royal Caribbean destinations has only continued to build since we revealed Royal Beach Club Paradise Island in The Bahamas that opens in 2025.

“Now is the perfect time to announce the next iteration of this collection with Royal Beach Club Cozumel,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.

“Cozumel is an incredible destination, and the beach club will perfectly complement all the island has to offer as an experience that combines familiar Royal Caribbean touches with the spirit of Mexico, alongside amenities and activities for every type of vacationer.”

Featuring striking beaches, views and pools for every vibe, Royal Beach Club Cozumel will welcome vacationers to their ultimate beach day in Mexico, complete with Royal Caribbean’s signature attention to detail across the experience, service and design.

Everyone can make memories with a combination of experiences that span from kicking back to adventuring across swim-up bars, dedicated pools for relaxation enthusiasts and families, private cabanas, snorkeling, kayaking and more.

And for a taste of Mexico and quintessential beach day favorites, coming to the table will be a variety of dining spots like a restaurant, bar and lounge with views – and flavors – for days and a street market as well as hands-on experiences like tequila tastings and cooking classes.

“We are very proud that Royal Caribbean International has chosen Quintana Roo to build Royal Beach Club Cozumel as a new attraction for many of their guests visiting our magical island.
