HB Exclusive: Life House adds two properties in Mexico

Tech-enabled hotel management company Life House has added two more properties in Mexico to its portfolio of more than 65 independent hotels.

The two properties are Faisano Nomadas in Aldea Zama and The Carmen in Playa Del Carmen. With these hotels, the company is now managing five independent hotels in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.

The Carmen is a 37-room hotel in Playa Del Carmen that caters to adult vacations and is located directly on the beach. Built in 2017, the hotel features views of the Caribbean from its rooftop bar and lounge, Deck5, as well as an Italian restaurant, La Famiglia, on the ground floor. The owner is a long-time Denver-based developer.

“We selected Life House for the promise of its advanced tech stack and the opportunity for shared services with their other hotels,” said the owner of The Carmen. “We expect to see many improvements to The Carmen’s operations and profitability with this new partnership.”

Faisano Nomadas is a 24-room hotel in Aldea Zama. It features a resort-style pool and a bar. The hotel was developed by Francisco Mendoza and Gustavo Acosta.

“Working with Life House has been really exciting,” said Mendoza. “They have been supporting our project with all their experience and knowledge as we are not hotel operators—we are just investors trying to develop a profitable business with a great customer experience for our guests. Life House has experienced specialists in all operating areas who are guiding us in this journey and giving us the structure needed in order to achieve our goals.”

Rami Zeidan, founder/CEO, Life House, added, “We are excited to partner with Messrs. Mendoza & Acosta and the owner of The Carmen on their special hotels and forward-thinking approach. Ever since we entered the market in 2020, we have seen how many great independent hotels are underserved and we’re looking forward to helping small and medium indie hotels throughout the country in the near future.”
