Crystal Lagoons partners with Hard Rock to develop US$216 million mega-hotel in Cancún2 October, 2015 / News
Crystal Lagoons has recently signed a partnership agreement with Hard Rock Hotels, one of the world’s most renowned franchises in the hospitality industry. The companies will join forces to develop what will be the greatest hotel in the Rivera Maya. The project named “Hard Rock Riviera Cancún” is a US$ 216 million mega-development that will sit on the heart of Cancún’s coastal area, just 4 kilometers away from the city’s international airport, in one of the most famous touristic destinations in the world.
Although all the hotel rooms will be facing the sea, the main amenity of “Hard Rock Riviera Cancún” will be a 5.5 acre crystal-clear lagoon which will sit between the hotel and the Caribbean Sea. This amenity will be suitable for any kind of water sports in a safe and environmentally friendly environment.
The project represents Crystal Lagoons’ debut in the hospitality business. The project will have the highest number of rooms in all Cancún (1.789 rooms) spread over 18 floors. In addition, it will have a 10.000 m2 convention centre to host some of the most important international conventions that Hard Rock used to organize in the U.S. instead of Mexico, due to the lack of suitable infrastructure.
Apart from the crystal-clear lagoon, the project will also have an 18-hole golf course developed by Jack Nicklaus, the world leader in golf course design; ten world class restaurants, and Hard Rock services such as Rock Spa and Rock Shop, among many others.
“Crystal Lagoons’ partnership with Hard Rock Hotel is a milestone for the company. This is our first project in the mega-hotel business that showcases how our crystal-clear lagoons are changing the lifestyle of people, not only in residential projects, but now also in the hospitality business”, said Uri Man, Crystal Lagoons’ CEO.
In order to strengthen Crystal Lagoons’ concept and technology in Mexico, the multinational company has just opened a commercial branch in Mexico City in order to meet the needs for crystal-clear lagoons in that country. For that purpose, Jean Pierre Juanchich has been appointed Country Manager for Mexico. The new executive majored in Business and Finance, holds a M.Sc. in Marketing at Universidad Adolfo Ibañez and has over eight years of experience at important Telecom, Retail and Real estate corporations.
It is worth mentioning that Crystal Lagoons already counts with 11 first and second home projects in that country. Among them, Diamante Cabo San Lucas outstands as the first Mexican super-luxury resort complex having a 12-acre crystal clear lagoon and a golf course designed by Tiger Woods.
Located at Mexico’s Pacific coast, next to the U.S. boarder, this development spreads over 8.600 acres and it represents a US$ 680 million investment. The project also has some of the world’ best golf courses, according to the renowned magazine Golf Magazine Top 100.
This is a low density complex and it is composed by a series of villas which process range between two and four million dollars. The project also has five 5-star hotels, restaurants, coffe shops, a gym, an spa, tennis courts, a movie theatre, playground for children and wide green spaces, among many other facilities.
Crystal Lagoons Corp. is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
