Grupo Posadas to Open Two New Resorts in 2018: Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende and Grand Fiesta Americana Oaxaca

ACAPULCO, MX. March 30, 2017 – Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Mexico’s largest hotel company, Grupo Posadas, announces plans for two new resorts that have already broken ground and are set to open in 2018: Live Aqua Urban Resort San Miguel de Allende and Grand Fiesta Americana Oaxaca.

Live Aqua Resort San Miguel de Allende is the result of a $73 million investment, becoming the fourth luxury hotel to open in the historic colonial destination. The state of the art complex will feature 135 rooms, a cultural center and ecological areas.

With an investment of $25 million, Grand Fiesta Americana Oaxaca is located close to the El Llano Park, one of the most popular tourism spots in Oaxaca and often the home of temporary civic and cultural events and exhibitions. The resort will also feature 145 rooms and will create more than 250 direct and 500 indirect jobs.

“As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we are very excited to pursue the expansion of our brand throughout the country” stated Rafael Lizárraga, Chief Commercial Officer of Hotelera Posadas.

As hotel offerings continue to evolve with the growing demand of discerning travelers, several of Grupo Posadas properties and resorts of the La Colección brand, a recently reimagined collection of beach resorts located in Mexico’s most desired locations, have also followed suit. The hotel group recently embarked on a multimillion dollar remodel of Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun All Inclusive that will conclude in April. Fiesta Americana Hermosillo also underwent a renovation and reopened in March 2017 showcasing 220 upgraded rooms with modern amenities and furnishings.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
