White sandy beaches and a crystal-clear ocean await guests in the newest five-star addition to the Kempinski Hotels portfolio: Starting from September 2022, Europe's oldest luxury hotel group will take over a luxurious beach hotel in the attractive Mexican tourist destination of Cancun on the Riviera Maya. With no closure of operations, this well-known property will undergo various improvements and adjustments to the Kempinski brand standards in the coming months and will be named Grand Hotel Cancun - managed by Kempinski during the transition period. From end of year 2022 it will be fully operated under Kempinski Hotel Cancun.

Occupying one of the finest beaches in Mexico, the elegant hotel offers 315 guestrooms and 48 suites - all featuring private balconies or terraces with a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. Eight dining options including two AAA Five Diamond Award restaurants, an exclusive club lounge, two swimming pools and an oceanfront whirlpool, a spa with relaxation gardens and secluded terraces, a fitness centre with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis centre, private cabanas and lounges on the hotel's 400-metre stretch of beach, a beauty salon and a kids' club offer a wide range of facilities to cater for all kinds of guest requests.

For incentive meetings, weddings, galas and conferences as well as events for large groups, abundant indoor and outdoor meeting space can be found around the resort. From a 11,220-sq-ft (1,000 sq m) ballroom which can be divided to elegant meeting rooms, boardrooms, breakout spaces and outdoor venues by the pool or a beachfront venue for up to 700 guests, there are ample options to elevate events and customise special meetings of all kinds.

Located in Cancun's hotel zone, the luxurious property can be reached in 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport as well as from downtown Cancun. Upscale shopping centres such as the Kukulcán Plaza or the La Isla Shopping Village are within walking distance.
