FORT LAUDERDALE — Playa Hotels & Resorts and Hilton have announced its newest all-inclusive resort: The Yucatan Resort Playa del Carmen, Tapestry Collection by Hilton.
With the new addition, the two hotel companies, which entered a strategic alliance in 2018, have effectively entered the growing soft branded all-inclusive market. They currently operate Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Jamaica, Hilton La Romana all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic, and Hilton Playa del Carmen in Mexico.
The adults-only Yucatan Resort Playa del Carmen marks the second Playa-managed Hilton all-inclusive property in Playa del Carmen and as a result, guests of both resorts will have expanded offerings between the two properties.
Formerly the Live Aqua Playa del Carmen, The Yucatan Resort Playa del Carmen is slated to open in May 2021 with 60 guestrooms in a four-storey building, a restaurant, sushi bar, rooftop pool and bar, spa and a fitness centre. The boutique property is located just minutes from the beach on Playa del Carmen’s famed Fifth Avenue known for its high-end restaurants, luxury boutiques and well-known resorts.
Jenna Hackett, global brand head of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, says that the brand is thrilled to welcome the property to its growing portfolio of Hilton’s all-inclusive resorts.
“As we continue to expand the brand to more international locations, this marks a particularly exciting moment as we will soon be able to offer guests a new option when planning their next resort getaway,” she says. “We look forward to showing more travellers the unique and vibrant flair that our Tapestry Collection hotels are known for, with the tropical beauty of Playa del Carmen as the backdrop.”
The Yucatan Resort Playa del Carmen will participate in Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest loyalty program for Hilton’s 18 distinct hotel brands. More details about the resort will be released soon on PlayaResorts.com.
