The Waldorf Astoria Cancun will have 150 guest rooms and suites, with either waterfront or mangrove-facing terraces and private balconies. The signature Waldorf Astoria spa will integrate Mexican healing traditions with native ingredients in state-of-the-art facilities with two plunge pools and two dining experiences. Additional dining outlets will serve up locally sourced Yucatecan cuisine.

The neighboring Hilton Cancun will be much larger with 600 guest rooms along with a swimming pool complex, curated adventures in local art, food and culture along with six all-inclusive unique culinary experiences.

Both hotels will feature expansive meeting and event space and be able to accommodate an assortment of events from small gatherings to large weddings.

Design firms SB Architects, EDSA and HBA have been selected to design both properties that will feature modern lines, repetitive patters and undulating forms. Classic Mexican colors and materials, as well as modern design elements and technology will also be incorporated into both properties.
