Hilton has signed three managed resorts in Mexico, furthering the company’s all-inclusive and luxury expansion plans: Hilton Vallarta Riviera All-Inclusive Resort, Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort and Conrad Tulum.
“Mexico has always been an incredibly important destination for Hilton,” said Danny Hughes, EVP/president, Americas, Hilton. “These new additions are one more symbol that tourism in Mexico is rebounding, and it is with great pride that we continue evolving our offerings in this burgeoning market, especially in the luxury and all-inclusive segments. We are extremely proud of our new products, ongoing partnership with Parks Holdings and the resilient team members who are working to bring the warmth of hospitality to the new resorts entering our portfolio.”
A development by Parks Hospitality and owned by Fibra UNO, Hilton Vallarta Riviera All-Inclusive Resort is expected to convert in Q4 2021. Situated between the beaches of the Bay of Banderas and the Sierra Madres Mountain, the 444-room resort features a private beach, two pools, full-service spa, fitness center, six craft cocktail bars and seven specialty restaurants. The resort offers nearly 26,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including 13,000 sq. ft. of outdoor event space.
Owned and developed by Parks Hospitality, Conrad Tulum and Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort are anticipated to join the Hilton portfolio in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022, respectively.
“We are honored and excited to be extending our successful partnership with Hilton with these iconic resorts and bringing new unprecedented luxury options to Tulum,” said Charles Elmann Fasja, CEO, Parks Holdings. “We believe Mexico’s unique combination of people, culture, gastronomy and natural beauties, make it the best global destination for tourism and we look forward to our continued future growth with Hilton.”
The new-build, 349-room Conrad Tulum will be Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ first hotel in Quintana Roo on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Located near one of the best-preserved Mayan sites in Mexico, the property features a design aesthetic inspired by Tulum’s lush landscape, picturesque beaches and surrounding nature reserves. The resort also offers seven restaurants and bars and five pools.
The 735-room oceanfront Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort will introduce travelers to an upscale and elevated all-inclusive experience. The resort will offer seven dining experiences; a multiple pool complex with a waterpark; and a secluded beach.
In addition to the variety of dining and recreation options at the Conrad Tulum or Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort, all guests at either hotel will have access to a 21,500-plus-sq.ft spa, with 16 treatment rooms and a pool, in a private and quiet area surrounded by tropical resort grounds. Guests visiting for meetings or events will have access to a 55,000-sq.ft. convention center and an auditorium that seats up to 400 people.
Continued growth in Mexico
Hilton continues to showcase confidence in the tourism industry’s rebound, including in Mexico as seen with the recent opening of The Yucatan Resort Playa Del Carmen, Tapestry Collection by Hilton as well as the upcoming Hilton Cancun, an All-Inclusive Resort located on 100 acres of Mayan coastline with a pool complex, 12 all-inclusive culinary experiences and 715 guestrooms.
With these latest additions, travelers can choose from six Hilton all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and four luxury resorts, including the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, the recently opened Conrad Punta de Mita and Waldorf Astoria Cancun, debuting in 2022.
“The addition of these resorts reinforces Hilton’s commitment to further our all-inclusive growth strategy and expansion of our luxury resorts portfolio in the top leisure destinations in the region,” said Juan Corvinos, VP, development, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton. “With today’s travelers planning that much-desired getaway, Hilton offers remarkable options. The announcement of these three new Hilton properties in Mexico comes on the heels of other recent all-inclusive development news: the May 2021 opening of The Yucatan Resort Playa Del Carmen, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, and the upcoming September 2021 opening of Mangrove Beach Corendon Curaçao Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton and November 2021 opening of Hilton Cancun, an All-Inclusive Resort.”
