Conrad Tulum Riviera Maya

Hilton has opened its first Conrad property in the Mexican Caribbean, with the unveiling of the oceanfront Conrad Tulum Riviera Maya.

The hotel is located eight miles north of the ruins of Tulum, and offers 349 nature-inspired guest rooms, incorporating organic elements including stone, wood and metal. All rooms have balconies and relaxation tubs, or plunge pools on the ground floor.

Guests enter the property through “ornate wooden doors, engraved by local artisans, and are immediately greeted by sweeping ocean views and an immersive art installation, a nod to ancient Mayan architecture and Tulum’s surroundings”.

The hotel has five restaurants and six bars, including sushi bar Ukai, teppanyaki restaurant Kengai, Autor restaurant offering “a curated tasting experience [which] reflects the history, heritage, and approach of the chef in residence”, and Chaak Bar, named after the Mayan rain god.

There are a total of five swimming pools, as well as a spa “inspired by the legends of the Mayan gods and traditional Mexican herbalism”, and meeting and events spaces include a 9,000 square foot outdoor terrace.

Conrad Tulum Riviera Maya joins Conrad Punta de Mita as the brand’s second property in Mexico, and is the first of a raft of Conrad hotels set to open this year in locations including Los Angeles, Nashville, Sardinia and Rabat.

Commenting on the opening Matt Schuyler, chief brand officer, Hilton, said:

“Conrad Tulum Riviera Maya represents so much of what we strive for in our ever-expanding brand portfolio – bold and locally-inspired design, innovative culinary offerings and fulfilling, meaningful experiences for our guests.

“With a record-setting year of openings ahead for the brand, it’s a pleasure to start 2022 with such an exemplary addition to Conrad’s resort offerings and to Hilton’s luxury category at large.”

Hilton is also set to add new-build Curio Collection property on the Yucatán Peninsula, with the 250-room EOS Tulum, Curio Collection by Hilton scheduled to open in early 2023, located within walking distance of the Tulum ruins and the beaches of Paraiso and Santa Fe.
