Life House began its foray into international markets with the three new 4-star boutique hotels with locally rooted food and beverage in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The portfolio, which was formerly branded under Cotelier Hotels, will initially be operated under the company’s tech-enabled hotel management platform, Life Hospitality, with the subsequent conversion to Life House-branded hotels in the near future. The addition of these three hotels the Life House portfolio grows to over 20 hotels under management, with numerous more signed and to be announced prior to year-end.
The Cotelier Hotels portfolio encompasses three properties, including the Calixta Hotel, Marquee Playa Hotel, and the Newport House Hotel, in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, all of which feature private beach club access and locally-rooted bars and restaurants. The hotels will initially retain their locally-inspired branding and design while benefiting from Life House’s tech-enabled operational platform.
Life House has committed resources toward expanding its Mexico business, with advanced discussions already underway for projects in Mexico City, Tulum, and Cabo San Lucas. The company is actively seeking acquisition, joint venture, and third-party management opportunities in the Yucatan Peninsula markets including Cancun, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, and Merida. Beyond the Yucatan, Life House has prioritized Mexico City, Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Ixtapa, and Huatulco.
