Joie de Vivre recently announced the opening of the new Hotel Maya in Long Beach which is located adjacent to the Queen Mary. It is set on 11-acres and went through a complete renovation of all the rooms and several new dining and entertainment options, costing more than $20 million.
The property was designed by DPS interiors and Arya architects, according to the general manager, Cherie Davis. The newest areas include a heated lap pool with Canal Cabanas surrounded by water, a Jacuzzi, several new meeting facilities with waterfront views and a fitness center.
The new restaurant, Fuego’s, held its first Sunday brunch which is Latin themed including entertainment. The food is superb and unique, all prepared with the watchful eye of the Executive Chef, Jesse Perez, who was brought in from Atlanta and named the Top Latino Chef in the U.S. this year by the Flavors of Passion Awards. The beautiful views of the inner Long Beach harbor are part of the ambience of dining at Fuego’s.
