Cancun, Q.R. — Hilton has announced the opening of its 200th hotel in the Caribbean and Latin America. On November 7, the Waldorf Astoria Cancun, a 173-room luxury resort set on 100 acres of coastline, opened its doors.
The Waldorf Astoria Cancun is also the Hilton’s second Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property in Mexico.
“The opening of the newly constructed Waldorf Astoria Cancun marks an important milestone for Hilton as we continue our rapid expansion in Mexico,” said Danny Hughes, President Americas, Hilton.
“Over the past year, we have landed on the Yucatan Peninsula in a big way with six new hotels from Tulum to Cancun, and we are delighted to have done so with incredible owners and team members in one of the most sought after destinations,” he added.
Managed by Hilton and owned by PHH (“Parks Hospitality Holdings”), Waldorf Astoria Cancun is a secluded beachfront paradise, located just 10 miles from the airport. The property is situated on 100 acres of the Mayan coast, 19 miles south of Cancun’s popular hotel zone and north of Riviera Maya.
“Building on the success of our Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts property on the Pacific coast of Mexico, we are delighted to now introduce the brand to the Mexican Caribbean,” said Matt Schuyler, Chief Brand Officer for Hilton.
“We are honored and excited to extend our successful partnership with Hilton with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Cancun. We believe that Mexico’s unique combination of people, culture, cuisine and natural wonders make it the world’s best destination for tourism,” said Charles El Mann Fasja, developer of Waldorf Astoria Cancun and CEO of Parks Hospitality Holdings.
