Tulum, Q.R. — Two new Hilton chain hotels were inaugurated in Tulum by officials Wednesday. Governor Carlos Joaquin was on site for the official opening of the Conrad Tulum and Hilton Tulum hotels.
During this inauguration speech, Joaquin said that one of the greatest challenges that Quintana Roo has had was orderly growth that benefited everyone.
“In this case, these new hotels will allow us to increase our tourist offer and, in addition, generate what we need most for our people, for the families of Quintana Roo, which are sufficient and well-paid jobs,” he said.
During his speech, he acknowledged that even during the covid-19 pandemic, “the only thing that did not stop was the construction of hotels,” pointing out that Riviera Maya as a destination has the largest concentration of hotel rooms with almost 55,000.
Joaquín said the state is an important destination with enormous competitive advantages based on natural wealth, history, traditions and gastronomic variety, but above all, the value of its people.
“That’s why we want benefits for everyone, for investors, for developers, to strengthen the destinations we have in Quintana Roo, but above all for the people who live here,” he told authorities at the inauguration.
Other dignitaries including Chris Nasetta, President and CEO of Hilton, Charles El-Mann Fasja, President and CEO of Parks Holdings, Santiago Rivera, General Director of the Conrad Tulum and Hilton Tulum hotels, as well as the directors of Hilton Latin America and the Caribbean and members of the Hilton Executive Committee, participated.
