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

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
