The Mexican Caribbean offers travelers an amazing location with breathtaking beaches, perfect weather, and incredible pristine waters, and the best hotel chains know it. Hilton Hotels & Resorts will open another resort in the Quintana Roo state, the Waldorf Astoria Cancun, on November 1 and is already accepting reservations. 

The new luxurious Waldorf Astoria Cancun is located 15 minutes away from Cancun International Airport,  near a mangrove natural preserve, and right in front of the Mayan Coastline. The company promises to offer guests world-class amenities and services.

The luxury brand Waldorf Astoria provides guests an upscaled experience at top destinations in the World—like Rome, Maui, Cairo, and Atlanta— reflecting the history and heritage of the locations. The first Waldorf Astoria residence in Mexico is in Los Cabos, the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, currently offering travelers fascinating culinary experiences and unique service on the Mexican Pacific coast, and now the brand expands to the Mexican Caribbean.

The Waldorf Astoria Cancun has 173 rooms, a spa, restaurants and bars, event spaces —ideal for weddings and conferences— three outdoor pools, a fitness center, and a private beach area. Unlike the Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort, this luxury resort will not be all-inclusive.

This will be the second Hilton Resort in Cancun and the fourth in the Mexican Caribbean. Hilton already has resorts in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum. The company has been taking advantage of the great potential of the beautiful Mayan Riviera and Cancun.
