The Hilton Group have announced plans for 9 new hotels in Mexico, which will be added to their existing 45 properties in the country. The locations of the new projects include cultural centres such as Guadalajara and Mexico city. However, there is also a focus on the Yucatan Peninsula with Merida, Cancun and, excitingly, Playa Del Carmen making the list of chosen locations.
The Fives Downtown is the first Hilton hotel to be constructed in Playa Del Carmen. The project is a joint venture between the Curio Collection by Hilton and TM Real Estate Group. The Curio Collection, launched in 2014, markets itself as creating individual, intriguing hotels that ignite guests curiosity for their chosen city. Expect The Fives Downtown to be no different. The 93 room property is centrally located in the Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue) neighbourhood and will boast a rooftop with an infinity pool, pool bar and lounge as well as a signature bar and restaurant - all offering exquisite views of Playa Del Carmen.
The local surroundings have also been taken into consideration, with the natural wonders of the Riviera Maya being a focal point in the architecture of the project. As a result, natural local materials such as stone, lianas and wood will be used in the project. Alejandro Zarfino, director of TM Real Estate Group has commented that the aim of the project is to combine “the authentic local spirit of the Curio collection and the one-of-a-kind character of Playa del Carmen, the hotel will provide a unique guest experience and serve as the perfect abode for travelers embarking on nearby adventure.”
The new build is scheduled for opening in late 2017 and Mark Nogal, Global Head at Curio goes on to say, “With its upscale accommodations, and stylish amenities, we look forward to welcoming guests to The Fives Downtown Hotel Playa del Carmen. The vibrant sea life, dazzling underwater caverns and palm-lined beaches make it an ideal city for Curio’s travelers seeking authentic experiences.”
For those looking to both work and play in Playa del Carmen, The Fives Downtown offers a unique investment opportunity in the area. Investors can purchase luxury condos that are then enrolled into a rental pool program. With the backing of a luxury hotel brand, investors can be sure of a strong ROI while simultaneously experiencing a stress-free rental property experience that includes both maintenance and management. These properties will essentially run on the same format as the successful TM Real Estate Group development: The Fives private residences which can be found at the Azul Fives Beach Resort in Playa Del Carmen.
2017 looks to be an exciting year, with The Fives Downtown encompassing both work and play in a world-class property which reflects the personality of Playa Del Carmen that we know and love. Will you be staying at The Fives Downtown?
