World media spotlights turn on Crystal Lagoons – Hard Rock joint venture project28 October, 2015 / News
The renowned Spanish publication “El Día” has recently reported on Crystal Lagoons partnership deal with Hard Rock Hotels to develop a gigantic crystal-clear lagoon on what it will be Cancun’s largest hotel.
Crystal Lagoons has announced a partnership deal with Hard Rock Hotels for developing what it will be Cancun’s largest hotel, named ‘Hard Rock Riviera Cancún’. The mega-project represents a 216-million dollar investment.
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.
The project 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.
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.
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.
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.
