INTERNATIONAL REPORT—Marriott International’s AC Hotel Wailea has broken ground on the south side of Maui County in Hawaii, construction has kicked off for a Kessler Collection property, and a Planet Hollywood Beach Resort is set to arrive later this year in Cancun, Mexico. Here’s a closer look at new-build projects underway:
R.D. Olson Breaks Ground on AC Hotel Wailea
R.D. Olson Construction broke ground on the AC Hotel Wailea, a ground-up 70,000 sq. ft., four-story estate hotel located on the south side of Maui County in Wailea, Hawaiʻi. Situated on a three-acre lot, the 110-room hotel will include one-bedroom suites and studio options, a business center, fitness area and infinity-edge pool complete with a poolside tiki bar and cabanas. The property is in close proximity to The Shops at Wailea, which has 70 retail stores and myriad dining and entertainment options. Other nearby attractions include Wailea Blue Golf Course and Wailea Beach.
Grand Bohemian Hotel Greenville Breaks Ground
The Kessler Collection, a portfolio of nine boutique hotels and restaurants, officially broke ground on the Grand Bohemian Hotel Greenville.
Set to debut in 2021, the 187-room hotel will serve as a gateway to the city’s Falls Park on the Reddy River for both locals and visitors. Grand Bohemian Hotel Greenville will have 30 suites complete with balconies, signature Poseidon Spa, an art collection curated by Richard C. Kessler, indoor and outdoor event spaces, and a two-story restaurant and bar perched above the park will provide views of the urban oasis.
The architecture of Grand Bohemian Hotel Greenville will be expressed in materials native to the upcountry. Warm, natural materials will include natural stone, timber and weathered wood, with generous expanses of glass opening views to this unmatched natural setting.
Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Planned for Cancun, Mexico
Following the opening of Planet Hollywood Costa Rica in late 2018, the Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Cancun will be rolling out the red carpet later this year on the beaches of Mexico’s Costa Mujeres. Located just north of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, Planet Hollywood Cancun brings a “Vacation Like a Star” experience to travelers of all ages looking to rewrite the script on all-inclusive vacations.
Planet Hollywood Cancun’s wellness program, PHIT, brings active vacationers the top-trending fitness regimes straight from Hollywood, CA. Wellness enthusiasts can refuel at the Fix Juice Bar with refreshments such as watermelon cucumber juice on the menu. The Planet Hollywood wellness story continues at the PH Spa & Beauty Bar, featuring Eminence Organics Skin Care products.
