Conrad Playa Mita, a new 325-room resort, expected to open in winter 2019 as Conrad Hotels & Resort’s second property in Mexico
PUNTA DE MITA, Mexico - Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) global affluent hotel brand, today announces plans to redesign and reopen the former La Tranquila Resort in Punta de Mita, Mexico as Conrad Playa Mita in winter 2019. Following a multi-million dollar investment, the re-imagined property will welcome guests to an exclusive tropical oasis.
"As one of the most popular tourism destinations in Latin America, Mexico continues to be a priority market in our regional growth plans," said Juan Corvinos, vice president, development, Latin America and the Caribbean, Hilton. "With the recent signing of Waldorf Astoria Cancun on the Mexican Caribbean coast, we are thrilled to further expand our luxury footprint on the country's Pacific coastline."
"We are incredibly excited to be working with Hilton on this spectacular project in the growing Riviera Nayarit, and believe that the Conrad brand reflects the vision we have for the resort," said Federico Martin del Campo, CEO of Walton Street Capital Mexico.
Co-developers, HRV Hotel Partners and Contact Development Company, together with a world-class international design team comprised of SB Architects, EDSA, Arquitectura de Interiores and Grupo Dovela, have envisioned a modern design to create a destination that highlights and enhances the natural beauty of the surrounding area. The design elements will incorporate the lush tropical landscape, open corridors and a contemporary and coastal décor. All guestrooms and suites will be steps from one of the finest beaches in Riviera Nayarit and will have unobstructed views the ocean.
Conrad Playa Mita will also serve as a destination for group travel with more than 45,000 square feet of combined function space, including:
- More than 30,000 square feet of premium outdoor event space with expansive beach frontage
- 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art ballroom
- 3,000 square feet of breakout rooms, each with ample pre-function terraces

"We look forward to delivering seamless service to our guests at a stunning coastal resort while giving them unique access to exploring the world around them."
