by | 19 Oct 2021 | Hotel Projects, Pipeline, Projects

The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database reveals the true scale of Mexico’s pipeline, which includes high-profile projects by the likes of St Regis and Rosewood.

Over the coming years, 139 hotels with 33,137 rooms will open their doors across Mexico, our research indicates. We take a closer look at these projects and highlight the ones you should really be keeping an eye on.

Mexico’s hotel openings by year

For the remainder of 2021, another 46 properties with 9,786 keys are due to open their doors, as a remarkably busy fourth quarter comes to a close. Another 46 hotels with 10,293 rooms will follow in 2022, while 20 projects and 6,407 keys are due for completion in 2023. Finally, 27 schemes and 6,651 rooms have already been lined up for 2024 and beyond.

Of Mexico’s 139 new hotels, 58 will be in the four-star segment, with 81 focusing squarely on the five-star sector.

Top urban growth markets in Mexico

The popular seaside resort destination of Tulum will get 16 new hotels with 4,067 keys, according to our data. This puts it just ahead of the capital Mexico City, which can look forward to the debut of 15 projects with 2,305 rooms.

Elsewhere, Cancún’s already considerable hotel offering will grow by 11 properties and 4,931 keys. Playa del Carmen follows with nine hotels and 2,136 rooms, with Puerto Vallarta rounding out the top five courtesy of its tally of six projects and 1,436 keys.

Stunning Mexican hotel projects you should know about

Situated on the Riviera Nayarit, the Susurros del Corazon resort will feature 62 ocean-view hotel guesthouses and 30 ultra-luxury oceanfront residences designed in harmony with nature. Three scallop-shaped pools will terrace down to the beach, where clear blue waters invite surfing, snorkelling and fishing against a backdrop of the volcanic Marietas Islands, a protected wildlife refuge. Its opening date has been set for early 2022.

At around the same time – early 2022 – Rosewood Resort & Spa Mandarina will open in Riviera Nayarit. Set just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the scheme will offer 130 guestrooms, suites and villas with panoramic vistas. There’ll also be a tempting array of F&B venues, three pools, a fitness centre, a spa and elegant event spaces.

Last but not least, Mexico will celebrate the launch of The St Regis Los Cabos towards the end of 2022. Part of Quivira, an 1,850-acre master-planned luxury residential community, its 120 guestrooms will boast sweeping ocean views. Travellers will be able to choose between a specialty restaurant, a beachfront grill with all-day dining and an al fresco poolside restaurant, while other standout facilities will include a fitness and wellness centre, swimming pools, a saltwater lagoon, luxury cabanas, a destination spa, and stylish meeting and event spaces.
