Hilton is making a major move in one of the hottest destinations in the Caribbean: Tulum.
The hospitality company has announced plans to expand with two new resorts in the Mexican Caribbean hotspot: the Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort and the Conrad Tulum.
“Mexico has always been an incredibly important destination for Hilton,” said Danny Hughes, executive vice president and president, Americas, Hilton. “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.”
Both Tulum resorts are owned and developed by Parks Hospitality.
The Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive and the Conrad Tulum will debut as Hiltons in the fourth quarter of this year and the first quarter of 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 of 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. I would like to thank all of Parks, FUNO and Hilton’s team for all their hard work in bringing these amazing projects to reality.”
The Conrad Tulum will be Conrad’s first-ever resort in the Mexican Caribbean; it will provide a “secluded haven for travelers featuring a bold design aesthetic inspired by Tulum’s lush landscape, picturesque beaches, and surrounding nature reserves,” according to the company.
The Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive Resort will have a total of 735 rooms in an oceanfront setting, with seven dining concepts and an expansive pool complex, including a waterpark.
The latter is part of a broad expansion for Hilton in the Mexican Caribbean; the company is also planning to open the new Hilton Cancun, another all-inclusive, in the near future.
And it’s yet another sign of the growing tourism energy in Tulum, which continues to draw in major brands like Kimpton, which opened its new hotel in Tulum late last year, Marriott, which debuted its first-ever Tulum hotel in February, and boutique operators like Namron.
