Cancun, Q.R. — An application for a new hotel has been submitted to authorities in hopes of environmental approval for H10 Costa Mujeres.
The hotel chain H10 has submitted the paperwork to the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) in hopes of constructing a 599-room hotel within the continental zone of Isla Mujeres. If approved, the hotel would bring the total amount of rooms for the municipality to just over 5,000.
The project consists of a hotel tourism development of 599 rooms over four levels, whose design also includes a sports center, swimming pools, ponds and fountains, squares and patios, walkers, parking, landscaped and conservation areas.
The new project would be constructed on the Costa Mujeres mainland area, where developers have already constructed several hotels including Hotel Palace Costa Mujeres, with 670 rooms and Playa Mujeres, where the Excellence chain already has two hotels with more than 1,000 rooms.
Also in that area is a third hotel that will be operated by AMResorts, of Apple Leisure Group, as well as a complex on the outskirts called La Herradura, which already has 800 rooms. Currently, Amada Residences with 120 rooms, a marina and a golf course is already operating.
If approved, this would make project five for the H10 company, who already has four projects in Riviera Maya.
