Kempinski Hotels is expanding its portfolio in North America with the takeover of one of Cancun’s most luxurious properties this September. This will be a seamless move, with no closure of operations. The hotel will undergo various improvements and adjustments to the Kempinski brand standards in the coming month. It will be renamed Grand Hotel Cancun, and will be fully operated under Kempinski Hotel Cancun by the end of 2022.

“To strengthen the North American territory and to extend our footprint in this crucial market is an outstanding opportunity for Kempinski,” said Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Kempinski Group and chairman of the management board of Kempinski AG, in a press statement. “Cancun is a top vacation destination for guests from The Americas, who also make up a good proportion of our guests in the rest of the world as well as for Europeans. During a 3-month transitional period, we will ensure that we implement our Kempinski DNA in the operation of this outstanding beach hotel and that we extend our brand recognition by delivering the impeccable service and quality Kempinski is renowned for.”

”We are very excited about this new partnership in which Kempinski Hotels will bring a new level of luxury and service to our iconic resort”, added Claudia Molina Basteris, CEO Grupo Inmobiliario Mosa S.A, in a press statement.

The property has 315 guestrooms and 48 suites—all featuring private balconies or terraces with a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. It offers eight dining options including two AAA five-diamond award restaurants, an exclusive club lounge, two swimming pools with an oceanfront whirlpool, a spa with relaxation gardens and secluded terraces, a fitness center with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis center, private cabanas and lounge chairs on the hotel’s nearly 440 yards of beachfront, a beauty salon and a kids’ club.

Located in Cancun’s hotel zone, the resort is 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport and downtown Cancun. Upscale shopping centers such as Kukulcan Plaza and La Isla Shopping Village are within walking distance.

“In addition to our presence in Cuba and Dominica, this will be another outstanding option for our esteemed guests to spend their holidays with us in the Caribbean,” added Bernold Schroeder. “Moreover, members of our loyalty program Kempinski Discovery, part of the Global Hotel Alliance’s GHA Discovery the world’s largest loyalty program of independent hotel brands, with 40 brands and of which we are a founding member, will enjoy memorable experiences and local offers besides earning and redeeming Discovery Dollars in this new Kempinski jewel in Mexico.”
