Marriott International’s Renaissance Hotels brand has opened a new property south of the border. Located in Puerto Cancún, a gated community at the beginning of the hotel zone, the Renaissance Cancún Resort & Marina is the brand’s first hotel to open in Mexico.
The 180-room lifestyle resort is poised to serve as an anchor in Puerto Cancún, home to a professional golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf, residential areas, a shopping center with restaurants, movie theaters and the largest marina in the area. The property also is close to nearby beaches.
The property is located 10 minutes from the city and 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport. The hotel’s design was overseen by Estudio Lemus Arquitectos in conjunction with Idea Asociados.
“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, VP of global brand marketing & 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.”
