Thompson Hotels to debut resort in Zihuatanejo on Mexico’s Pacific Coast

DENVER — Luxury lifestyle brand Thompson Hotels will introduce its newest luxury resort in Zihuatanejo in late 2018, following a repositioning and extensive redesign.

Located oceanfront along the destination’s Playa La Ropa beach on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, Thompson Zihuatanejo will feature 54 suites and multiple food & beverage venues, along with “stunning” pools, says the company, including an adults-only oceanfront infinity pool, a family-friendly option with swim-up bar and a pool offered exclusively for swim-up suite guests.

“We are expanding our Thompson resort portfolio to a new region of Mexico after the success of our Thompson hotels in both Cabo San Lucas and Playa del Carmen,” said Jamie Sabatier, CEO of Two Roads Hospitality.

“The opening of Thompson Zihuatanejo will bring a new urban resort experience to the area, while still honoring the deep traditions and laidback lifestyle of this quaint fishing village.”

Thompson Zihuatanejo is one of the area’s only beachfront properties, located on a secluded stretch of coastline along a protected bay. The resort’s oversized suite accommodations all offer separate living areas and private balconies or terraces.

Premium suite types include two Lagoon Penthouse Suites, one Thompson Suite and 11 swim-up suites with direct access to an exclusive pool.

Most suites will include private infinity plunge pools, with many perched along the property’s freshwater lagoon or offering dramatic ocean views.

Perched under open-air palapas seaside, CENIZA restaurant will offer a refined Mexican dining experience under the stars with fire-grilled seafood.

The resort will also introduce HAO, a day-to-night beach club experience set against the resort’s adults-only pool and overlooking Playa La Ropa.  HAO will offer all-day dining, including a unique beachfront breakfast menu, poolside bites and handcrafted cocktails.

Oceanfront event space will accommodate outdoor functions and weddings for up to 200 guests. El Jardin, an outdoor garden area, can additionally accommodate receptions and social gatherings for up to 180 people, while two meeting rooms can host groups of 12-50 people.
