Hilton has announced plans to welcome the luxury Waldorf Astoria Cancun and the all-inclusive Hilton Cancun resort to the global hospitality company’s growing portfolio in Mexico.
Developed by Parks Hospitality and set to open in 2021, the neighbouring properties will feature distinct characteristics and amenities across 100 acres of Caribbean beachfront.
“With more than half of our Latin America portfolio present in Mexico, we are proud to announce the plans for Waldorf Astoria Cancun and Hilton Cancun as we continue to introduce distinguished properties in the world’s most sought-after destinations,” said Juan Corvinos, vice president, development, Latin America and the Caribbean, Hilton.
“Representing our luxury and upscale brands respectively, Waldorf Astoria Cancun and Hilton Cancun will offer guests a taste of Mexican culture fused with Waldorf Astoria’s uncompromising sophistication and Hilton Hotels & Resort’s flagship hospitality.”
The Waldorf Astoria Cancun will feature 150 exceptionally appointed guest rooms and suites, with waterfront or mangrove-facing terraces and private balconies.
The property will boast the signature Waldorf Astoria spa, integrating Mexican healing traditions with native ingredients for indulgent treatments, in addition to state-of-the-art fitness facilities, two plunge pools and two dining experiences.
A one-of-a-kind beachfront escape, the neighbouring all-inclusive Hilton Cancun resort property will feature 600 stylish guest rooms offering stunning panoramic views.
The Hilton resort will welcome guests to relax on the beach, lounge at the swimming pool complex, and experience curated adventures in local art, gastronomy and culture.
The hotel will also tempt palates with six all-inclusive unique culinary experiences.
“Through this collaboration, we are excited about expanding our portfolio in Cancun, one of Mexico’s top tourist destinations,” said Charles Elmann Fasja, chief executive, Parks Desarrolladora.
“We recognise the tremendous value in working with a respected industry leader such as Hilton and we look forward to building upon this alliance in the future.”
Renowned design firms SB Architects, EDSA and HBA have been hand-selected to create a fluid transition between indoor and outdoor spaces throughout both the Waldorf Astoria Cancun and the Hilton Cancun properties.
Inspired by the surrounding area’s natural elements, the design at both properties will incorporate variations of modern lines, repetitive patterns and undulating forms that mimic the sea.
Both properties will also feature classic Mexican colours and materials, as well as modern design elements and technology.
Hilton currently has a portfolio of more than 100 hotels and resorts open and welcoming travellers in Latin America, including more than 50 in Mexico.
