Gonzalo del Peón, President of AMR Collection, this week discussed the company’s ongoing investment in Mexico at Cancun Travel Mart Mexico Summit. The AMR Collection, which is under the umbrella of the Hyatt Corporation, will see the launch of new all-inclusive Secrets Resorts in both Tulum and Isla Mujeres in 2023. AMR is also opening the new Secrets Impression Moxché on December 1st of this year.
Speaking at the event, Del Peón said, “the Mexican Caribbean is and will continue to be essential for the company’s operation.” The AMR Collection operates in 11 countries and runs 113 resorts across 7 brands. In Cancun and the surrounding area, popular AMR resort brands include Secrets, Dreams, and Breathless. The addition of all-inclusive Secrets Resorts in Tulum and Isla Mujeres to the company’s portfolio will be a significant investment in the region.
Secrets Impression Isla Mujeres
Isla Mujeres is a small island located eight miles off the coast of Cancun in Mexico. It is a popular day trip for Cancun tourists and can be accessed by a 30-minute ferry from the mainland. The opening of the Secrets Impression Isla Mujeres all-inclusive will give visitors more choices if they’d like to immerse themselves in the Island paradise beyond the popular day tours.
Scheduled to open December 1, 2022, the adults-only resort will feature 125 luxurious suites and impressive amenities, including 8 dining options, an over-the-water cinema club, a 30-person whirlpool, and a twisty four-story waterslide that will launch guests from the main pool into the sea below.
Suites will be decked out with breathtaking views of the Caribbean waters, double rain showers, and terrace whirlpools. The resort will also offer personalized butler service and exclusive personalized experiences for its guests.
Guests will access the resort via private boat or catamaran transfers from Cancun to the resort’s private pier and Welcome Yacht lounge. There will be plenty of dining choices among the resort’s 8 dining options and 9 bars, including pan-Asian cuisine, tapas, and a world-class steakhouse.
Secrets Impression Isla Mujeres will also feature a world-class spa complete with a full-service beauty salon, a floatarium, and hammam beds.
Isla Mujeres has so much to offer tourists, including the popular MUSA Cancun Under Water Museum of Art, opportunities to swim with sharks, and a thrilling zip-line over the waters of Garrafon Natural Reef Park. The island is also home to some of the most beautiful Mexican beaches, perfect for snorkeling, sunbathing, and swimming in the turquoise waters.
Secrets Tulum Resort and Beach Club
Secrets Tulum Resort And Beach Club will be the Secrets brand’s first all-inclusive resort in Tulum. AMR does operate another property in the area – the popular Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa. The new resort is scheduled to open in the summer of 2023 and signals the company’s confidence in the ever-expanding Tulum tourism industry.
While there is not much public information on the forthcoming Secrets Tulum Resort and Beach Club, it has been announced that it will be located within the luxurious Aldea Zama Complex in the heart of Tulum and is 2 hours south of Cancun. According to parent company Hyatt, the resort will “fuse elegant and boho design with eco-chic elements, and jungle-themed surroundings.” The resort will be uniquely designed by award-winning architect Michael Edmonds.
Tulum has seen rapid expansion and popularity in recent years, having recently surpassed previous tourist numbers. The region will soon see additional infrastructure investments into the region, including its own international airport and a scenic train that will connect Tulum with other popular destinations in the Yucatan Peninsula. Both are expected to be completed in late 2023.
