Commune Hotels + Resorts has announced plans to open a 125-room luxury resort, Thompson Playa del Carmen, in 2015 in downtown Playa del Carmen.

Located in the pedestrian area of downtown on Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue) near the beach, shops and restaurants, the new resort will feature an infinity rooftop pool with panoramic views of the town and ocean, as well as a world-class spa. In addition to the resort, the project will feature more than 300,000 sq. ft. of retail, cafes and restaurants.

Thompson Playa del Carmen will be the brand’s second resort in Mexico, following Thompson Los Cabos, currently in development stages.

“This project is a powerful combination of luxury hotel, sophisticated dining and nightlife, and well-curated retail in the most privileged location in downtown Playa del Carmen,” says Niki Leondakis, CEO of Commune Hotels + Resorts. “This deal marks our ongoing expansion into resort areas and the growing presence of Thompson-branded lifestyle hotels in Mexico and throughout Latin America. We are honored to partner with [real estate development firm] Thor Urbana to bring a fresh, innovative concept to Playa that will be compelling to locals and visitors alike.”
