Apple Leisure Group took the opportunity of Tianguis Turistico 2018 to announce plans for four new AMResorts properties in Mexico.
The first to open will be the Now Natura Riviera Cancun, which will add more than 500 rooms to Puerto Moreles in 2019.
Secrets Punta de Mita and Dreams Punta de Mita will both open in 2020. The Secrets resort will have approximately 200 rooms while the Dreams property will have more 400. Finally, the 400-room Secrets Marina Resort and Spa will open on the Riviera Maya in 2020.
The Tianguis announcement was made by the parent company as AMResorts doesn’t make its own announcements until ground is broken.
John Hutchinson, president of ALG noted that the AMResorts portfolio currently consists of 52 resorts with almost 20,000 rooms in six countries. In just the last two years 7,000 rooms have been added.
Jan Lapointe, VP Strategic Sales Planning, told Open Jaw that the new resorts are good news for Canadian travel agents.
“So many of our Canadian guests come back to the brands they know and love. We’re thrilled to be able to keep providing new options for them. And Mexico offers such a wonderful setting and service standard. We can always count on that.”
