Mayaliah Tulum Hotel & Residences – MGallery Hotel Collection will open in Tulum, Mexico joining a storied collection of over 100 distinctive boutique properties worldwide.
Accor, a world-leading hospitality group, in partnership with Inmobilia, the leading premium real estate developer in Southern Mexico, announced the signing of definitive agreements for the development and management of the first MGallery Hotel & Residences in Mexico. Scheduled to open in 2024, Mayaliah Tulum Hotel & Residences – MGallery Hotel Collection will be a luxurious eco-chic jungle oasis where nature and culture converge, providing an extraordinary and immersive experience for travelers in the heart of Tulum.
Joining MGallery’s global network of more than 100 unique addresses in over 30 countries around the world, Mayaliah Tulum is one of the most anticipated additions to the brand’ s exclusive collection of singular, distinctive boutique properties to date, and will feature 45 beautifully appointed guest rooms and 95 branded residences.
“We are thrilled to continue expanding our portfolio in North & Central America, and for the opportunity to bring the MGallery Hotel Collection brand to Mexico, with Accor’s very first hotel in the paradise of Tulum,” said Heather McCrory, CEO of Accor North & Central America. “Nestled between the jungle and sea, drawing inspiration from the stunning destination, the hotel is set to become an enchanting sanctuary, promising travelers rich experiences and adventures of local discovery and exploration. With its own unique personality and special story to tell, the property will be a remarkable addition to MGallery’s distinctive collection of boutique hotels.”
Located within the premium award-winning and innovative community of Aldea Zamá, long regarded as being the best location in Tulum, Mayaliah Tulum Hotel & Residences – MGallery Hotel Collection will harmoniously coexist with nature; surrounded by the jungle of the Tulum ecological reserve and nearby Mayan archaeological wonders, just minutes from the beach and city center. Guests will enjoy enchanting and memorable experiences that draw upon the spirit of the destination, inspired by the Mayan culture and local community, and complemented by authentic and excellent service.
The property’s design vision is inspired by the lush tropical flora and fauna of the destination – nature is the design – with all aspects of the property carefully planned with biophilic design principles in mind. Ever-growing plants and rippling water features will envelope the exterior and interiors will be adorned with locally crafted furnishings inspired by natural elements, ultimately creating an alluring and luxurious jungle sanctuary. Arkham Projects, in collaboration with Filipao Nunes, have been selected to lead the master planning, architecture and interior design to create the stunning and exciting destination of Mayaliah Tulum.
Influenced by the unique stories and personality of the hotel, Mayaliah Tulum will offer several elevated dining experiences at its four restaurants and bars, including a rooftop bar, that will showcase innovative Mexican cuisine and inventive cocktails that highlight local ingredients.
With a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, Mayaliah Tulum will also have a pool, a world-class spa and fitness center that encourages guests to indulge in mindful rejuvenation with luxurious treatments and other revitalizing offerings.
Adding to the vibrant artistic and cultural community of Tulum, the property will have a distinct dedicated space for indoor and outdoor art exhibitions and will also feature a stylish Tulum-inspired market, bringing together talented local vendors with a selection of one-of-a-kind creations and entertainment, for guests to enjoy.
Mayaliah Tulum will include 95 one-and two-bedroom branded residences and owners will enjoy access to all hotel amenities along with an exclusive owner’s lounge, a relaxing pool, and coworking space. In addition to onsite privileges, MGallery branded residences' owners are invited to join the Accor Ownership Benefits Program, presenting them with preferred status in ALL-Accor Live Limitless – one of the most appealing lifestyle loyalty programs in the world – access to a VIP reservation desk, and special residence owner rates at more than 5,000 Accor hotels and resorts worldwide.
The property will also exceed local energy efficiency and sustainable building guidelines, in accordance with Accor’s established global commitments to the environment, and will be EDGE Certified.
“Over the past 20 years, Inmobilia's goal has been to create the best communities with unique experiences alongside distinguished partners to develop exclusive and lucrative investment properties. Our important partnership with Accor to introduce MGallery, one of the most exciting and innovative brands in hospitality, to Mexico -and consequently to Tulum- is in line with our mission of creating luxurious and sophisticated developments,’ said Roberto Kelleher Vales, CEO of Inmobilia. “With this property, as is our vision with the rest of our portfolio, we aim to create a community that provides a comforting refuge from the chaos of busy city life, while also fostering a connection between residents and visitors with the environment and history of the destination. We visualize and build communities that have a palpable sense of community and Mayaliah Tulum will deliver upon our value proposition.”
“We continue to experience significant growth in Mexico, particularly within the luxury and lifestyle segments. The introduction of the MGallery Hotel Collection to the market brings value to our current portfolio and invites additional growth opportunities in our region,” added Mark Purcell, Senior Vice President, Development, Accor North & Central America. “With a solid pipeline of over 10 properties set to open in Mexico within the next four years, we are pleased to count on our esteemed partners, such as Inmobilia, to continue creating exceptional hotels that benefit from Accor’s global expertise.”
