Hyatt will continue the expansion of its luxury resort portfolio in Latin America, fuelled by leisure travel demand, with a new Cancún development.
The new-build Grand Hyatt Cancún Beach Resort will open in Mexico’s Quintana Roo state, in collaboration with ownership group Diestra Realty.
Anticipated to debut in 2024 in time for the summer season, the 500-room luxury hotel will have 28 guestrooms featuring their own plunge pool, and 46 are luxury suites, including one Presidential Suite.
11 dining concepts will feature world-class chefs and iconic dishes reflective of the destination; six bars, including a lobby lounge bar, pool bar, and beach shack; an indoor and outdoor destination spa area and fitness centre to connect guests with their physical and mental wellbeing; three swimming pools; and more than 16,000 sq ft of dynamic, state-of-the-art gathering spaces designed to accommodate events of any size and kind. Additional offerings and amenities will include a kids club, activity centre, business centre and retail shops.
Hyatt’s senior vice president of development for Latin America and the Caribbean, Camilo Bolaños, said: “Cancún is one of the most desired and booming leisure tourism destinations in the world, and we are thrilled to collaborate with the team at Diestra Realty to bring the iconic Grand Hyatt brand to this sought-after destination.
“Hyatt’s recent acquisition of Apple Leisure Group (ALG) and our expanded portfolio of all-inclusive luxury resorts demonstrates our focus on high-end leisure travel. The new Grand Hyatt resort will be a critical piece of our strategy to grow Hyatt’s luxury resort presence in key leisure destinations that our guests, World of Hyatt members, and owners are seeking.”
Resort community location
The resort will be located within Puerto Cancún, a master-planned residential resort community strategically located between downtown Cancún and the Cancún Hotel Zone that is intended to merge dynamic city life with a resort experience and environment.
Diestra Realty CEO Jorge Paoli commented: “Diestra Realty is delighted to work hand in hand with Hyatt to bring the luxurious Grand Hyatt Cancún Beach Resort to life. This will be our first Hyatt property in Mexico, and we anticipate a very successful collaboration.
“A great deal of work has gone into designing and developing the hotel to create an environment that exceeds the expectations of our guests. The beautiful turquoise waters of the Caribbean Ocean as the backdrop of the resort will ineluctably inspire couples, families, and leisure or business groups alike.”
Grand Hyatt Cancún Beach Resort will join 18 additional Hyatt-branded hotels in Cancún, including all-inclusive luxury resorts across the AMR Collection brands, giving guests and World of Hyatt members a variety of resort options and leisure experiences to choose from.
Further, this property will mark a milestone in the Grand Hyatt brand’s growth in the Americas, joining Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Grand Hyatt Bogotá, Grand Hyatt Nashville, Grand Hyatt at SFO, and Grand Hyatt Vail – all of which opened in the last five years.
