Marriott is expanding in the Caribbean region with another new hotel.
The company announced that it would be partnering with Grupo Diestra on a new-build Renaissance hotel in Puerto Cancun, set between Cancun’s Hotel Zone and its downtown.
The Renaissance Cancun will include 180 rooms and around 445 square meters of indoor meeting space.
The 800-acre master-planned development will include 270 acres of ecological reserve, an 18-hole golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf (operating), a 200-slip marina, 115 retail outlets, restaurants and cinemas.
The new Renaissance project is one of four new hotels in Mexico announced this week by Marriott International President and CEO Arne Sorenson on a visit to the country.
They include the new Renaissance Cancun, a new Westin in Puebla; a new Aloft in Peubla and a new AC Hotel in Monterrey.
“We are very excited to continue growing our reach in Latin America with brands as diverse as Renaissance, AC Hotels by Marriott, Westin and Aloft,” said Sorenson. “These new projects are driven by a solid increase in the demand for business and leisure travel to this dynamic part of the world. They also reaffirm our commitment to delivering high-quality hotel development projects and maintaining investor confidence in our innovative brands.”
