Travellers flock to Peurto Vallarta for its white-hot sun and picturesque beaches. But while there is no shortage of all-inclusive resorts in the area, few can truly claim the elusive “getting away from it all” title. Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta, however, stands above the rest with its exclusive, private location, elegant dining venues, and deluxe oceanfront rooms filled with premium amenities.
Here are the top 5 reasons to stay at Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta:
1. Location, Location, Location
So important that it can’t be repeated enough. When visiting Puerto Vallarta, think white-sand beaches, blue waves, and lush green hills stretching as far as the eye can see. At Hyatt Ziva, you get them all. The property sits on a private, hideaway beach, surrounded by tropical forests, and palm trees swaying above palapas. With natural greenery expanding for miles from its beachfront facilities, guests are not required to wear wristbands while on this secluded luxury oasis.
Hyatt Ziva is also a short drive from downtown Puerto Vallarta and nearby major attractions like Zona Romantica, El Malecon Boardwalk, and the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
With over 300 rooms owning either oceanfront or tropical garden view, Hyatt Ziva’s accommodations are designed to fully include the surrounding scenery. Suites come with private terraces or window walls adjacent to the bedroom, where guests can catch the best sunrise and sunset without ever leaving their rooms.
Spacious and sunlit, each suite is fully furnished with contemporary natural wood, wicker, and marble décor and regional-style artwork. All suite includes LCD Satellite TV, fully equipped bathroom with rainfall showers, and complimentary refreshments.
Swim up Suites:
Walk out the terrace and you are right at the pool. Each room comes with a separate sitting area with lounge chairs by the plunge pool to take in the ocean view.
Upgraded Premium suites:
With upgraded privileges that allow all-access to Hyatt Ziva’s towers, the suites come with private balconies with lounge furniture and Jacuzzi tub. Some include swim-up access from the terrace to a private plunge pool and a second floor with separate living spaces.
3. Food and Drinks
With elegant venues serving European, Mexican, and international cuisines, there is no shortage of dining options at Hyatt Ziva. From open-air a la carte dining by the beach to sophisticated lounge bars serving up golden sunsets with endless glasses of martinis, each restaurant and bar comes with its own polished menus and distinct ambience.
For the hopeless romantic:
Try its main restaurants, Blaze, PureZa, and MelaZane. You won’t have to try hard to impress when each venue serves up contemporary regional cuisines by the waterfront.
Blaze serves up Brazilian rodizio style grill by the hotel’s observation deck. During whale watching seasons, you can catch glimpses of dolphins and whales frolic in the water just beneath the horizon.
At PureZa, you can enjoy authentic Asian-inspired entrees in an open-air dining room underneath the tall thatched roof. From grilled octopus skewers to Korean baby back ribs bathed in Tamarind sauce, PureZa offers exotic recipes with fresh cocktails like its famous Singapore Sling.
MelaZane offers both modern Italian and classic firewood oven-baked lasagna, pasta, and grilled entrees, and the venue provides refined casual dining with a wide selection of wines. Its in-house sommeliers are never too far away when suggesting the best pairing for a country-style dish like cream of butternut squash with gorgonzola cheese.
Try traditional Mexican recipes at Casa Grande. Modelled after an antique hacienda, the restaurant’s dining room is designed like an estate’s courtyard. Here, you can expect both classic enchiladas, tacos, and modern Mexican entrees.
Considered to be one of the best spas in Mexico, Hyatt Ziva’s spa provides organic, all-natural body treatments with locally sourced oils and plant extracts.
Enjoy relaxing agave and coconut oil body massages by an oceanside cabana or try a wine therapy massage with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes at its sunlit ocean view rooms.
Having seven pools around the property, you’ll never need an excuse to lie down in a poolside lounge chair or backstroking across the Hyatt Ziva’s five oceanside infinity pools. Choose between knocking back tropical fruit cocktails by the spacious, clean, designer pools or head down to the beach for tailored food and drink services.
Opens 24-hours a day, Hyatt Ziva’s oceanfront Vitamar fitness centre is fully equipped with smart fitness machines, cardio equipment with integrated LCD monitors, and high-intensity workout classes. The facility also offers personal trainers, health monitoring programs, Zumba rooms and tennis courts.
5. Tours and Activities
On the Beach:
From volleyball and soccer matches to tossing horseshoes on the beach, enjoy fun and games on the property’s powder-white beach. If you don’t feel like breaking a sweat, there’s a tequila bar by the resort’s activity centre where you can pull up a stool and cheer your favourite team on with a drink.
Enjoy nightly shows ranging from Mexican folklore performances and acrobatic fire shows to acrobatic acts and circus troupes. Part of Hyatt Ziva’s all-inclusive amenities, the shows are complimentary and included with booking.
Tours & Excursions:
Take on jungle adventures and eco-tours from the hotel’s excursion desk and get out there! Whether you are sightseeing in historic colonial neighbourhoods or rafting down river rapids, Hyatt Ziva makes it easy for you to fill up your daytime itinerary with outdoor excursions.
