Travelers to the Cancun region will have more lodging options to choose from starting this December with the grand opening of two new resorts. The hotel giant Marriott is eyeing an expansion to their all-inclusive hotel options with the building of the Royalton Splash Riviera Cancún. Meanwhile, in Isla Mujeres Apple Leisure Group is currently building an adults only hotel filled with luxury suites. Without a doubt the target audience for these two couldn’t be further apart.
Marriot’s New All Inclusive Option Will Feature Plenty of Amenities
What Marriott is building is set to be a true mega resort that’s going to feature one thousand 49 rooms. The massive campus is going to include a water park and a theater. In house restaurants and a total of 9 different bars are also part of the plan. Marriott has already begun to promote this new property selling travel packages alongside Canadian airline Sunwing. Canadian residents may very well be the ones that will get first dibs on this new property.
Essentially, as is the case with most all-inclusive experiences the idea is to keep guests on property at all times. The hotel is going to be part of the autograph collection branch of Marriott resorts. This hotel will bring the total number of hotels under the Marriott corporate umbrella within the region to 23. The corporation runs lower budget resorts in the Cancun downtown area, as well arguably the most luxurious resort in the Ritz Carlton Cancun.
This new resort would essentially be right in the middle where luxury meets affordable pricing. Offering options for families, as well as people looking to hit the Cancun party scene. Marriot only got into the business of running all inclusive resorts in 2019 with the purchase of 7 hotels in Barbados. Since then they’ve been looking to expand that part of their business.
Apple Leisure Group Betting On Private High End Villas In Isla Mujeres
As previously mentioned the hotel that Apple Leisure group is building in Isla Mujeres is meant to appeal to folks who are looking for more of a private vacation option. The hotel is set to include 125 luxury suites. In fact, it’s so private that one of the ideas that developers have is to provide a ferry service from the Cancun mainland exclusively for guests of the resort. Guests will arrive at a private dock, these trips are meant to be conducted through catamarans or private boats. Javier Coll president of business development at Apple Leisure group had this to say about the concept behind the resort,
“The demand for unique vacation experiences that become unforgettable in settings that prioritize luxury, and personalized service is high”
He then went on to talk about the way that guests are going to be led to the resort, as well as the different amenities that they would have access to during their stay saying,
“The concept of the “Impression” label optimizes that luxury sector even more, elevating the already high standards of the secret brand. Part of these amenities include a personal butler service for guests, as well transport via private boat or catamaran to the resort’s own dock. Within the facilities guests will be able to enjoy 5 different restaurant options.”
More Resorts Headed To The Riviera Maya
These two new resorts add themselves to the long list of new lodging options that are set to debut in the Riviera Maya. The President of the local Hotels Association anticipates that an excess of 20,000 new rooms are going to be built from now until 2025. Even though the state of Quintana Roo already boasts around 120,000 rooms available to date, the increase over the next few years is still set to make a massive impact on tourism in the region.
