There’s another SLS hotel on the way in the Caribbean to join the ever-expanding group of Cancun hotels.

Following in the footsteps of the soon to open SLS LUX at Baha Mar in the Bahamas, parent company sbe Entertainment Group announced plans to open a new hotel in Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean.

The property is slated to include a 150-room SLS LUX Hotel and 150-room residential/sbe club membership units.

The property is slated to open in 2018.

“We chose sbe from a large group of potential partners because of the company’s track record in providing exciting, high-quality and innovative experiences for its guests,” said Daniel Araf, chairman and CEO of Armar Group, which will be building the property.

SLS also announced a planned project in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
