Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski
Barefoot Caribbean Luxury

By Kateryna Ivchenko 


Yes, that’s correct! Kempinski Hotels is offering a new luxurious resort situated on the shores of Cayo Guillermo, just a short 45-minute drive from the Jardines del Rey International Airport.

Opened in 2020, Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski offers travellers a chic hideaway with direct access to one of the top 25 beaches in the world, Playa Pilar (with Kempinski being the sole resort positioned on this beach), 4 restaurants (3 - à la carte and 1 buffet), 5 bars, including a cigar lounge, Kempinski The Spa Village, and a gym.

However, what distinguishes this resort from its neighbouring properties are the luxurious overwater villas. While it may give the impression of a Maldives vacation, this experience is much better and closer. For travellers departing from YYZ, this idyllic paradise is merely a 3.5-hour journey away! Perfect for long weekends or short trips.



Cayo Guillermo Resort Kempinski offers 245 rooms, suites, and villas:

  1. Sunset Villa with Private Pool (73 m² / 786 ft², up to 3 guests)
  2. Playa Pilar Water Villa (84 m² / 904 ft², up to 3 guests)
  3. Presidential Water Villa Hemingway (256 m² / 2756 ft², up to 4 guests)
