Kempinski Hotels is extending its footprint in the North American market through the takeover of a luxurious beach hotel in Cancun, Mexico.
Starting from September 2022, Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group will manage the property and intends to renovate it without closure.
While the site is undergoing the various improvements and adjustments to reach Kempinski brand standards it will be named Grand Hotel Cancun – managed by Kempinski. Following the transition at the end of this year it will be fully operated under the moniker Kempinski Hotel Cancun.
The hotel offers 315 guestrooms and 48 suites – all featuring private balconies or terraces with a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. Eight dining options including two AAA Five Diamond Award restaurants, an exclusive club lounge, two swimming pools and an oceanfront whirlpool, a spa with relaxation gardens and secluded terraces, a fitness centre with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis centre, private cabanas and lounges on the hotel’s 400-metre stretch of beach, a beauty salon and a kids’ club.
For incentive meetings, weddings, galas and conferences as well as events for large groups, abundant indoor and outdoor meeting space can be found around the resort.
Large scale events are hosted in a 11,220-sq-ft (1,000 sq m) ballroom which can be divided, plus a beachfront venue for up to 700 guests, while smaller provisions include meeting rooms, boardrooms, breakout spaces and outdoor venues by the pool.
Implementing Kempinski DNA
Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Kempinski Group and chairman of the management board of Kempinski AG, commented: “To strengthen the North American territory and to extend our footprint in this crucial market is an outstanding opportunity for Kempinski. During a three-month transitional period, we will ensure that we implement our Kempinski DNA in the operation of this outstanding beach hotel and that we extend our brand recognition by delivering the impeccable service and quality Kempinski is renowned for.”
Kempinski is partnering with fellow operator Grupo Inmobiliario Mosa S.A. at its latest site. Grupo Inmobiliario Mosa’s CEO Claudia Molina Basteris added: “We are very excited about this new partnership in which Kempinski Hotels will bring a new level of luxury and service to our iconic resort.”
