Cancún, Q. R. – A new hotel set for construction in the municipality of Isla Mujeres has been given the go-ahead.
The Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) gave the green light to the project Hotel Palace Costa Mujeres, a 670-room complex that will be built on the mainland of Isla Mujeres with an investment of 385 million pesos.
The hotel will have various customer service areas, restaurants, bars, communal areas for guests, rest and recreation areas for the tourist’s stay in the hotel.
It will be located within the mega-complex Costa Mujeres, whose density approved environmentally since 2011 is 6,900 rooms, distributed in 14 hotel projects on an area of 151.52 hectares, of which at least two are already approved and ready to start construction.
The continental zone of Isla Mujeres is the next pole of hotel development of Quintana Roo, comparable to the number of rooms Cancun currently has. It is composed of four tourist-residential complexes — Playa Mujeres, Paraíso Mujeres, Costa Mujeres and Soto Lindo. Together they total 27,000 rooms that will be detonated over the next 15 years.
In Playa Mujeres, the Excellence chain already has two hotels that total more than 1,000 rooms. A third hotel is also expected to be operated by AM Resorts, as well as a resort on the outskirts called La Herradura, which already has 800 rooms.
That area currently operates a 120-room Amada Residences, a marina with 174 positions and a golf course.
The project Paraíso Mujeres has a surface of 148.2 hectares in which will be developed in four lots with hotel, residential and commercial use with 2,025 rooms, commercial mixed use area, beach club, service areas and equipment.
