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.
Set to deliver a truly unforgettable experience for guests, 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, in addition to state-of-the-art fitness facilities, two plunge pools and two exquisite 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.
Expansive meetings and events space across both hotels will be available to accommodate everything from small gatherings to large weddings.
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. The company is actively pursuing additional Latin American growth opportunities and currently has a robust pipeline of more than 70 hotels throughout the region, including nearly 30 projects in Mexico. This year, Hilton has opened seven hotels across four brands in the country, including the in-market debut of the Conrad Hotels & Resorts brand in San Luis Potosi.
