“2016 starts the best way with the opening of Hyatt Ziva Cancun” said Fernandez Pina. “Investments like this one are very encouraging for a destination that is still number one in Latin America. Establishments like Hyatt Ziva bring prestige, more tourists and generate more jobs,” added Fernandez Pina.

“Our goal for this resort was to pay homage to the history of the destination, while creating a resort like no other in Cancun. Among many exciting features, we created a microbrewery and brought in a brewmaster to brew homemade artisan beer, the first of its kind at any resort in the region. For dessert lovers, there’s even a venue entirely dedicated to sweets – there is truly something for everyone at Hyatt Ziva Cancun,” said Stadlin. “The resort offers an unforgettable experience for vacationers, conference attendees and wedding couples alike. We’re proud of our staff who have spent months preparing for this opening. Everyone is dedicated to the same common goal – ensuring that every guest experiences our genuine Service from the Heart™.”

“We are thrilled to officially welcome the second Hyatt all-inclusive resort to this fantastic destination,” said Cabrera. “The resort’s compelling design creates areas that inspire friends and families to reconnect, while also featuring intimate places where adults can recharge in refined luxury. All of this is complemented with the most innovative and inspired dining imaginable.”

Suites are elegantly appointed with furnishings that reflect the colors of the Yucatan, including unique features and thoughtful details such as bathrooms with ocean views, floating swim-up suites, rainfall showers and spa tubs in many of the suites.
