The Rosewood Mayakoba resort has named a new executive chef.

Chef Juan Pablo Loza is coming to the property to oversee food and beverage operations and the resort’s five restaurants.

Loza arrives at Mayakoba after serving as executive chef and food and beverage director at the Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa.

““I am honored to have the opportunity to bring my passion for cooking and cultural traditions to Rosewood Mayakoba, where I am already inspired by the deep-seeded traditions and local flavors of Riviera Maya,” Loza said in a release. “I look forward to leveraging the relationships I have forged with the region’s finest suppliers and furthering Rosewood Mayakoba’s tradition of offering its guests the best in traditional and innovative Mexican cuisine.”

His previous experience includes stints as executive chef at Antigua’s Jumby Bay and as executive sous chef at Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, among others.
