“Representing our luxury and upscale brands respectively, Waldorf Astoria Cancun and Hilton Cancun will offer guests a taste of Mexican culture fused with Waldorf Astoria’s uncompromising sophistication and Hilton’s flagship hospitality.”.  

Developed by Parks Hospitality, the two projects are expected to make their debut in 2021 and will be located on 100 miles of Caribbean beachfront. 

The Waldorf Astoria Cancun will have 150 rooms and suites, with waterfront or mangrove facing terraces and balconies whilst the Hilton Cancun will have 600 rooms with panoramic views.
