ACAPULCO, MEXICO, (May 15, 2010) — Comprised of 22 tourism companies, Sunset World announced a $26 million dollar investment that will expand its range of accommodations to six resorts and more than a thousand hotel rooms in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
The multi-million dollar investment will add 80 new units to expand the Sunset Fisherman Beach Resort in the Riviera Maya and a complete renovation of the Royal Sunset Beach Resort in Cancun, said Orlando Arroyo Marroquin, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Sunset World. The investment is not including the scheduled construction of its new Riviera Maya luxury resort.
The announcement was made during the XXXV Tourism Acapulco Tianguis, marking Sunset World’s position as one of the most important resort corporations in the Mexican Caribbean with 22 years in the industry.
The company recently incorporated two new boutique hotels in Cancun, the Laguna Suites Golf + Spa (pictured above) and the Ocean Spa Hotel, which were purchased and remodeled with an $11 million dollar investment. The exclusive tourism group also proudly announced the completion of the first phase of Hacienda Tres Rios Resort. The corporation invested $60 million dollars to build this 273-room Riviera Maya luxury resort.
With these new acquisitions, Sunset World will own six hotels and more than a thousand rooms with the Royal Sunset Beach Resort, Sunset Lagoon Resort & Marina, Laguna Suites Golf + Spa, Ocean Spa Hotel, Sunset Fishermen Beach Resort and Hacienda Tres Rios Resort, Spa & Nature park– providing luxury and comfort in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.
Hacienda Tres Rios Resort is the company’s most luxurious and ecological resort. With a 10-year master plan, Sunset World plans to build a total of more than 700,000 hotel rooms and residences available for whole or timeshare ownership in the 326-acre Tres Rios Nature Park in the Riviera Maya. Future tourist developments in Cozumel and Isla Mujeres have also been included in the long-term plans of the company.
Sunset World was created in 1998 by Orlando Arroyo Marroquin with the financial support of visionary men in Cancun such as Romarico Arroyo Marroquin, Arturo Marcelin and Jorge Pallas Caceres.
In addition to modern hotels offering world-class services, the company offers the best vacation club ownership in Mexico and the Caribbean, awarded as such for 19 consecutive years by RCI, global leader in vacation ownership exchange.
Sunset World has become one of the most solid tourism corporations in the Mexican Caribbean. Due to its successful marketing, vertical and horizontal operation systems and direct sales, these strategies have allowed the hotelier company to grow and generate more than 5,000 jobs in Mexico, U.S., India, Philippines and England. Other important companies that fall under the Sunset World Corporation include the Marina Club Lagoon, the travel agency Sunrise Travel, car rental agency Royal Rent a Car, and its own progressive marketing firm.
