Last month, Kempinski Hotels took over the former Ritz-Carlton Cancun Hotel and renamed it Grand Hotel Cancún managed by Kempinski during the transition period. This is the first Kempsinki property on the North American continent and third in the Caribbean. This will be Kempinski's first property in Mexico, but it currently has hotels in Cuba and Dominica.
With no planned closure, the property will undergo improvements and adjustments in the coming months. When the hotel is up to Kempinski's standards, the resort will be renamed the Kempinski Hotel Cancun, according to published reports.
The property has 363 rooms and suites—all featuring private balconies or terraces with a view of the Caribbean. The hotel’s amenities include a fitness center with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis center, private cabanas and lounges on a 1,312-foot stretch of beach, a beauty salon and a children's club, besides extensive indoor and outdoor events spaces.
Located in Cancun’s hotel zone, the property is just 25 minutes from the Cancun International Airport or downtown Cancun.
