The Hyatt family of brands continues to deliver consistently stellar results in their chains of hotels around the world. Jamaica is definitely not the exception. Our Travel Expert April Caldwell recently stayed at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall and shares her first impressions.
I was fortunate enough to break away from the cold wintery weather and retreat to the grand Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall resort in Montego Bay on the island paradise of Jamaica. It doesn’t get better than this.
The Hyatt is well-known for their high-end comfort and quality at the right price and here at the Hyatt Zilara, I am not disappointed. I recently stayed at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall and all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Montego Bay is the perfect place to look for lively crowds, tranquil settings, and some fun in the sun.
Upon arrival, I was immediately greeted with a cold drink and handed a lemongrass-scented hand towel. This, right away, set the tone for the experience I was about to encounter. Warm, friendly customer service that went above and beyond was a theme I fortunately received throughout my stay.
The lead-in category Junior Suite room I stayed in was a truly relaxing escape. The bathroom had twin his-and-hers sinks, rainfall-style showers, a Japanese-style soaker tub with various ‘mood’ settings, a beautiful balcony with an oversized sofa lounger, and a king size bed so comfortable and inviting that you might actually consider spending the rest of your vacation right here. My own hotel room was the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail on the balcony and watch the sun set.
One of my favourite things about staying at the Hyatt Zilara is that if you stay at one you can play at another. The Hyatt Zilara is conveniently next door to the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall and worth experiencing both to see the difference; like the Ziva’s much livelier pool bar and the Zilara’s quieter tranquil spa-like environment. But most importantly, you can indulge in the cuisine from both resorts.
Lobster mac’n’cheese, duck poutine, Brazilian steak swords, and that’s just the beginning. I really enjoyed Fez at the Hyatt Zilara, a Moroccan-themed rooftop bar. It’s casual with an upbeat but relaxed atmosphere complete with sofa loungers that can seat up to 13 people. The lighting is warm and the roof top view is magnificent and romantic.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay at the Hyatt Zilara and was happy to see the subtle differences between the Zilara and the Ziva. I would definitely go back and escape to my hideaway in the Zilara meanwhile indulging in all of the luxuries between the two resorts.
