Renaissance Hotels has announced the opening of Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina, the brand’s first hotel to open in Mexico.
Through its design, evening bar rituals and engaging Navigator, the 180-room lifestyle resort is poised to anchor Puerto Cancún – home to a professional golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf, residential areas, a shopping centre with restaurants, movie theatres, and the largest marina in the area.
“We have been on a journey to evolve our hotels’ design to reflect what the Renaissance brand offers today: a sense of clever theatricality and an open invitation to experience something a little unexpected during our guests’ travels,” said George Fleck, vice president of global brand marketing and management, Renaissance Hotels.
“We are thrilled to celebrate Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina and its spontaneous high-low design that embraces the DNA of the locale and gives guests a new sense of the destination.”
Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina encourages travellers to discover the hidden gems that gives its neighbourhoods soul through its whimsical design.
Led by Estudio Lemus Arquitectos in conjunction with Idea Asociados, the hotel’s design takes a decidedly distinct approach to Mayan mythology, inspired by the journey a soul takes after death through the cenotes to reach the mystical underworld of Xibalbá.
“Just as the Mayan underworld is a universe worth discovering, Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina is a space full of stories waiting to be told,” said Karina Zuñiga, general manager of the property.
“Stories that will awake the explorer within us, when we allow ourselves to be inspired by the unexpected.”
Located ten minutes from the city and 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport, the new Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina is located in Puerto Cancún, an exclusive and gated community at the beginning of the hotel zone, and only steps away from the beach.
