“Grupo Proactivo and Aldea Oceana Holdings are top players in Mexico and the perfect partners to bring our vision of hospitality to life in the beautiful coastal resort town of Playa del Carmen,” said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein. “It’s an honor to collaborate with likeminded innovators like José Mireles Verastegui who share our passion for creating new, fresh and authentic hotels, and we look forward to introducing a new luxury lifestyle experience to hotel guests and local residents alike in 2023.”
Set to open in 2023, Emma & Elissa by Dream Hotel Group will feature 220 guest rooms and suites and a myriad of amenities, including a rooftop infinity pool deck, bar and lounge boasting unobstructed views of the Caribbean, a second ground level pool with mixology bar, lounge area and sun deck, signature restaurant, beachfront café, kids club, fitness center and more.
Designed by renowned Mexican architect Rodrigo de la Peña, Emma & Elissa by Dream Hotel Group is a luxury condo-hotel project where owners and hotel guests are invited to enjoy state-of-the-art amenities and best-in-class service side by side.
“We are thrilled to introduce the By Dream Hotel Group brand of hospitality to Playa del Carmen,” said José Mireles Verastegui, CEO of Grupo Proactivo. “We have a great synergy working together and look forward to developing another incredible project in one of the world’s most desirable beachfront destinations.”
“We are pleased to partner with José Mireles Verastegui and his team in bringing the first truly luxury lifestyle condo-hotel concept to Playa del Carmen,” added Christian Glauser Benz, Vice President of Development, Dream Hotel Group. “Our brand adds tremendous value to the development, enhancing property valuation for those who will own units here.”
Located just an hour south of Cancun International Airport, Playa del Carmen or “Playa” as it is commonly referred to by locals, is a coastal resort town in Quintana Roo on the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. Heralded as one of Mexico’s brightest Caribbean Stars, Playa del Carmen is a world-renown destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as scuba diving, snorkeling and unrivaled beachfront relaxation.
Unlike its northern sister city Cancun, which has a reputation of being incredibly touristy, Playa del Carmen retains an authentic Mexican feel due to its smaller size—a hidden gem in the heart of the Riviera Maya.
By Dream Hotel Group is a curated collection of independent hotels that fosters each property’s unique identity. Whether adaptive reuse or new build, By Dream Hotel Group blends intelligent and bespoke design with thoughtfully curated programming to deliver exceptional lifestyle experiences that entertain, connect and best serve the culture and community of its locale.
