Experience the Newly Renovated Hyatt Ziva Cancun

In Cancún, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Hyatt Ziva Cancún recently opened its doors in one of Cancún’s most pristine and exclusive beach locations, Punta Cancún. Surrounded on three sides by the Caribbean Sea, the 547-suite Hyatt Ziva resort has undergone an approximate $85 million expansion and renovation creating a new luxury all inclusive experience for guests of all ages.

Renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legoretta designed the original resort building that has been incorporated into the new Hyatt Ziva Cancún. The iconic design exemplified the contemporary Mexican architecture that came to define the development of Cancún and other Mexican beachside resorts. Respecting and maintaining its classic pyramid-style architecture, the resort has been expanded and reimagined to create an atmosphere that reflects the culture of the Yucatan. A bridge connecting the north and south beach provides guests easy access to both beaches.


Guests are welcomed into an elevated lobby that captures ocean views to the northeast, and in the evening, the lights of Isla Mujeres. The lobby is a blend of contemporary design juxtaposed with the original Mayan materials and themes. The resort’s furnishings are made in Mexico from local woods and fabrics, and the use of bright color accents adds Mayan detail.

Each of the resort’s 547 guest suites offer views of the Caribbean and the lavish resort gardens. Furnishings reflect the colors of the Yucatan with surprising accents such as butterfly inspired lighting and spa-style bathrooms with soaking tubs. All guest suites are designed with technology in mind to provide one touch lighting efficiency, and guests may also enjoy complimentary in-room refreshment bars, in-room dining service, and for upper-category accommodations, they can enjoy swim-up suites (pictured above) and private butler service.


For dining, Hyatt Ziva Cancún elevates the traditional all-inclusive experience with a choice of nine restaurants and six bars and lounges. With a wide selection of fresh and seasonal cuisine, guests can dine internationally with choices ranging from a French brasserie to an Italian cucina, to an Asian-infused sushi and teriyaki restaurant to a beachside taquería and ceviche bar. For casual dining, guests can enjoy an American diner and a gourmet buffet restaurant with engaging show-cooking stations. Additionally, Hyatt Ziva Cancún offers an onsite microbrewery and sports bar, Très Cervezas, which showcases three high quality, innovative and unique beers made by head brewmaster Juan Jose Garcia. The craft beers will be served throughout the resort.
