The Dream Hotel Group is making its first foray into the Caribbean.
Dream Hotel Group has announced the development of three hotels in the Caribbean: Unscripted Tulum, Unscripted Belize and Dream Belize.
“We are thrilled to announce the development of three new hotels in two of the world’s most desired destinations,” said Jay Stein, CEO of Dream Hotel Group. “We are honored to partner with Luke and Mauricio to bring both brands to market and excited to see our brands resonating on such a wide scale.
Unscripted Belize, the first of two planned Belize openings for the company, will debut in late 2018 with 24 beachfront cabana units.
The open-air concept will also include an outdoor restaurant and bar, a large pool area and two private boats for diving and snorkeling.
Dream Belize, slated to debut in 2020, will include 100 guest rooms and suites, along with 120 condominium-hotel units and 40 branded residential home sites, with a total of 260 keys.
Unscripted and Dream Belize, both of which will be owned and developed by Luke Chadwick, will be located in the Kanantik Belize development in southern Belize.
“With more than one million visitors last year, Belize is currently the fastest growing destination in the Caribbean. Partnering with a market leader such as Dream Hotel Group to bring these great new hotel concepts to market could not be more appropriate,” said Luke Chadwick, owner and developer of Kanantik Belize.
The company’s planned Tulum property, Unscripted Tulum, will be its first foray into the Caribbean coast of Mexico, with a boutique hotel including 97 rooms, two pools and a communal dining concept.
Unscripted Tulum, the brainchild of Vertical Hospitality, is slated to open in 2020.
“We are excited to bring our progressive lifestyle brand Unscripted to the chic coastal town of Tulum,” said Christian Glauser Benz, Vice President of Development, Latin America and the Caribbean, Dream Hotel Group. “This project reflects our passion and plans to create unique experiences for creative global travelers across Mexico and Latin America.”
Last year, Dream also announced plans to open a pair of hotels in the Dominican Republic.
They’re all part of a wider global expansion for Dream, which plans to open more than 30 hotels around the world across its Dream, Time, Chatwal and Unscripted brands.
