Thompson Zihuatanejo, the Luxury Lifestyle Resort Has Re-Opened

The 56-Room Resort Welcomes Guests With Advanced Safety Measures, New Executive Chef, and All-Inclusive Meal Package

Mexico, Guerrero, Zihuatanejo. September 17, 2020

Thompson Zihuatanejo - the third property in Mexico from luxury lifestyle brand Thompson Hotels - reopens today with all new safety procedures, an all-inclusive meal package, and introduces a new executive chef who has conceptualized new menu offerings.

Safety remains a top priority at Thompson Zihuatanejo with a newly implemented Global Care and Cleanliness Commitment that includes protocols to keep a safe environment for both guests and staff. Guests are now greeted with complimentary disinfectant kits upon their arrival, along with a temperature check, disinfection of shoes with special mats, and personal safety kits (protective masks, glasses, hand sanitizer, etc). Keeping social distancing in all areas of the hotel is a requirement, along with a reduction of capacity in all areas. Thompson Zihuatanejo uses the Curant app for its guest amenities, a mobile service platform designed to improve a safe guest experience by offering single-touch access to room service, poolside/beachside ordering, and other on-property amenities including on-demand communication with the resort's concierge and operations teams.

Guests can continue to experience HAO-Thompson Zihuatanejo's restaurant and bar steps away from the beach - for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. During the day, guests can relax with a tequila or mezcal and ceviche tasting, or participate in hands-on, chef-driven cooking classes. Additionally, a new Meal Plan has been introduced, available at Hao, the beach, poolside, and within the villas. The Meal Plan will include access to themed food nights, one beachfront cooking class to be booked upon arrival, one $50 USD spa credit per room, per stay, and mini bar snacks and beverages restocked daily. Prices will vary seasonally.

Under the direction of the new Executive Chef Bernardo Cabrera, guests dining at HAO can enjoy seasonal, Pacific-to-palapa cuisine inspired by harvests from the resort's garden. Bringing a decade of culinary experience, dedication and passion to Thompson Zihuatanejo, Cabrera leads the food and beverage program, drawing on his extensive experiences at leading resorts in Turks and Caicos, Vietnam, and Mexico.

As the region's only resort offering direct beach access, guests will be able to enjoy unparalleled views of Mexico's Pacific coast. All guestrooms and suites include distinct living areas, private balconies, or terraces, and most include private infinity plunge pools. Larger groups can choose from a number of two-bedroom suites including the Thompson Suite with an outdoor entertaining area complete with wet bar, and two Beach Suites with views directly overlooking the bay (all with private plunge pools). The property also features 11 distinct Swim-Up Suites, each with its own outdoor rain shower and terrace, and exclusive access to a shared, private pool.

Nightly rates begin at $139. For more information on the hotel and to book, please visit

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key

Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
