A New Hyatt All-Inclusive Is Opening Near Cancun 

By: Alexander Britell - July 11, 2022

The new Hyatt Zilara Riviera Maya is slated to open its doors on Dec. 1, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The new adults-only resort, part of the Playa Hotels and Resorts portfolio, will feature 291 suites in a beachfront in the increasingly popular town of Puerto Morelos. 

Puerto Morelos is the heart of what’s considered the “Riviera Cancun,” set about six miles from Playa del Carmen in one of the Yucatan peninsula’s most charming beach towns. 

It’s the latest expansion for a growing Hyatt brand that now includes resorts in Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.

That means a total of four Zilara-branded adults-only resorts in the wider region.

Playa will be operating the resort, as is the case with all Hyatt Zilara and Ziva (the family-friendly counterpart) resorts.  

“The Hyatt Zilara brand redefined the adults-only all-inclusive experience more than a decade ago and set a new standard for the category,” said Dean Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Playa Hotels and Resorts.

This week, Playa official launched reservations for the resort, one of several in-development Caribbean properties to do so. 

Hyatt continues to grow in the all-inclusive space, most notably with its acquisition last year of Apple Leisure Group.
