Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. has announced it has signed an agreement with Inmobiliaria Punta Tormentos S.A. de C.V. to introduce its Sheraton brand to Cozumel, Mexico.
Sheraton Cozumel Resort, slated to open in early 2018, will be located on an island in the Yucatan Peninsula. The new resort will increase the Sheraton brand’s portfolio to six hotels in Mexico and 37 in the region.
Sheraton Cozumel Resort will have a beachfront location with direct access to the island’s coral reefs, a leading destination for divers. The resort will have all of the Sheraton brand’s signature amenities and services. The 120 guestrooms — including six suites — will offer unobstructed ocean views, as well as the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed, high-speed Internet, an LCD flat-panel television and an MP3 docking station. In addition to direct beach access, the resort will also offer two pools, a poolside bar serving light bites and drinks, three restaurants, a lobby lounge and the [email protected] experience.
Additional facilities will consist of Sheraton Fitness, a Shine Spa and 8,500 square feet of meeting space for special events, meetings and conventions. Located approximately 10 miles from the city center, the resort is convenient for traveling to and from the Cozumel Airport and the ferry port that provides access to Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya.
Sheraton Cozumel Resort is the fifth Starwood hotel signing in Mexico within the first quarter of 2015. Mexico is the largest market for Starwood in Latin America and its seventh largest market worldwide.
