“We take immense pride in unveiling the reimagined Kempinski Hotel Cancún, where we seamlessly integrate the iconic features of our esteemed European brand with the distinct local elements of the destination, resulting in an unparalleled luxury experience,” said Rodrigo Arellano, Marketing Manager at Kempinski Hotel Cancún.
