In December 2012, Oasis Hotels & Resorts opened a new resort, the Sens del Mar. Formerly the Grand Oasis Playa, the new Sens del Mar is a 388-room, adults-only, all-inclusive resort, in the southern portion of Cancun's hotel zone. Guest rooms feature pillow-top mattresses and plasma televisions. The oceanfront resort has six restaurants, several bars, three swimming pools, a gym and a spa. During their stay, guests will have complimentary use of a Smart Car (restrictions apply).
Two Oasis resorts, in Cancun, have new names. Neighboring resorts, the Grand Oasis Caribbean and the Oasis Palm Beach, will now be known as the Grand Oasis Palm and the Oasis Palm, respectively. Upgrades to both hotels have been made and each resort now features Family Suites, adjoining rooms, and themed rooms designed for children. The theme rooms have either a jungle motif or an "under the sea" design. The kids clubs at each of these two hotels have new activities, like cooking classes. Each of these resorts will now have a live deejay performing at the pool, to give guests the full beach club experience.
And, in other Oasis news, the Oasis Cancun and the Grand Oasis Cancun have a series of concerts scheduled for the coming months. Kool & the Gang will kick off the concert series, in the resort's new 5,000-seat event venue, on January 12, 2012. Some other events include performances by Pitbull and Gloria Gaynor, plus the Cancun Jazz Festival, and a Country Music Festival will also be held at Grand Oasis Cancun, in 2012.
