Plan Memorable Meetings at Hyatt Zilara™ and Hyatt Ziva™ All-Inclusive Resorts

Every aspect of events at these three resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean are executed for success.


The moment can be quite striking: when all the pieces settle into place, and the members of a meeting group become wholly—and whole-heartedly—present for their business programs. It takes the right environment to foster it, and Hyatt has within its portfolio several meetings-ready paradises that do it with aplomb.

Among them: the adults-only Hyatt Zilara and all-ages Hyatt Ziva Resorts—all-inclusive havens of hospitality on the shores of Mexico, Jamaica, and—coming soon—the Dominican Republic. At properties in all three locales, attendees will find they can completely surrender to sumptuous stays, stunning scenery, and superlative service, with every group member’s want and need satisfied from sun-up to seminar to slumber.

The indulgent all-inclusive aspect breathes life, too, into business programs, serving as reward for performance and facilitating focus, creativity, and clarity of thought—which can be put to good use in the resorts’ capacious conference facilities. Meeting rooms are just steps away from the silken shorelines that serve as the centerpiece of all of the all-inclusive Hyatt resorts, each of which is uniquely and authentically nuanced to reflect its local community, culture, setting, and style.

A dazzling diversity off amenities and activities cater to all during downtime: sumptuous Zen Spas; fitness facilities and experiences; engaging entertainment; sprawling swimming pools; oceanfront firepits; and recreation and watersports galore. Palates are pampered, too, with on-site dining outlets, bars, and lounges beckoning colleagues to convene together. They’ll relish the chance to dine together on fresh seafood that’s given the ultimate Mexican spice treatment, savor local Jamaica jerk chicken on the beach, or gather with spirit in the Dominican Republic at the stylish new Rum Bar.

Island Vibes: Jamaica

Expectations of grandeur are exceeded at Hyatt’s pair of properties in Montego Bay, which sit side-by-side overlooking the Caribbean Sea and are nestled in by Jamaica’s scenic Blue Mountains. That the 344-suite adults-only Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall and 277-suite family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall share shoreline space allows attendees who stay at either to share the amenities and experience while customizing their stay to suit their style.

 Meetings have their place, and plenty of it: 50,000 square feet that can accommodate up to 1,200 event attendees. Indoor function rooms are flexible, comfortable, and modern—ideal for bringing great minds together, no matter the industry. When it’s time to reward with a special event, several on-property outdoor venues—including a sprawling 20,000-plus-square-foot lawn—make that easy for the meeting planner to make happen.

 Attendees will also want to come together in a casual way at the on-site restaurants and bars, which offer an around-the-world tour for the taste buds, as well as opportunities to savor local specialties: Jamaican-style coffee drinks, Caribbean cuisine, and that famous spiced jerk chicken, which they can enjoy barefoot in grass cabanas or swinging chairs that are right on the beach.

From lunchtime to tee time at the gorgeous White Witch and Cinnamon Hill golf courses, the available on-property amenities and easily accessible area activities turn the meetings experience into something so much bigger for attendees. Montego Bay—with its beach, jungle, and mountain settings—offers exceptionally unique experiences: from historic plantation tours to ziplining to taking a dip in the lagoons near Jamaica’s famous 600-foot-long Dunn’s River Falls waterfall.

It’s all easily accessible; so, too, are the resorts themselves. They’re just 15 minutes’ drive from Sangster International Airport, which has a private lounge that can be used by both Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara guests. 


Coastal Callings: Los Cabos, Mexico

It’s an image group members will call to mind long after they return home from their meetings experience at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos: the never-ending waterscape and stunning ocean rock formations of the Sea of Cortez  that greeted them every day during their stay. In fact, location here will so much play into their program, as the serene desert dune surrounds and easy-going vibe of the area will make them keen on collaboration and clear on purpose. 

The sprawling property has 35,000 square feet of meeting space in which program attendees can transition their inspiration into innovation. That includes an 11,625-square-foot Grand Theater, which can seat up to 1,078 people, and 13 breakout rooms, including the divisible and flexible Grand Peninsula Ballroom. State-of-the-art technological features include simultaneous language translation capabilities, making the property an ideal choice for global gatherings.

It will take no work for attendees to enjoy themselves after meetings end, as both recreation and relaxation have their place at the resort. The smooth transition from seminar to siesta is facilitated by comfortable guest rooms, of which the resort has 594—all suites, including 34 swim-up suites and several two-bedroom units. There are other places on-property to unwind, too: around floating lagoon and oceanfront firepits; at the two-story Zen Spa; or in a poolside cabana. There are multiple swimming pools, in fact, including an impressive infinity pool with ocean views.

When hunger strikes, no attendee will go unsatisfied. The Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos has 10 dining options, as well as six bars and lounges. There’s even a place for poolside ceviche—Coco Loco, which also serves up fresh, vibrant salsas and tacos stuffed with locally sourced ingredients—and a festive sports bar inspired by the 1968 Olympics Games in Mexico City.

Indeed, the culture of the host country inspires, and the surrounding Los Cabos area rewards with stunning sights and exhilarating activities. Whether attendees choose to explore the marinas or go deep-sea fishing; hit the golf courses or try out new watersports; or step into the shops, galleries, and cafes of nearby towns, they’ll savor their Los Cabos experience as something special.

DR Dreams: The Dominican Republic

All attendees will feel like VIPs when they arrive at the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana or adults-only Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana, where the finishing touches are being made in preparation for grand openings this November. 

Groups can look forward to impeccable surrounds at this pair of properties, which cozy up to an expansive white sand beach that stretches one-quarter mile long. The resort grounds, too, will have impressive features—starting with an extensive waterpark that comprises a lazy river with grotto cascade, towering waterslides that cater to the young and young at heart, and a Double Flow Rider feature that will attract attendees who love an adrenaline rush.

The fitness center comes with two cardio rooms, as well as dedicated spaces for Zumba and Spin classes. Then, to relax, attendees can take advantage of the two-story, 22,750-square-foot Zen Spa, which will also have a luxurious outdoor oasis lagoon. Twelve restaurants, bars, and lounges run the gamut, satisfying cravings of around-the-world flavors from Italian to French-Tahitian to Hindu; there is both a rum and martini bar, where attendees can gather for a night cap. In the surrounding gated community of Cap Cana, golfing and deep-sea fishing opportunities await.

The resorts’ 45,000 square feet of flexible meeting space includes a 14,000-square-foot-plus Main Ballroom and 16 breakout rooms that combine to cover just as much floor space. A covered terrace and 28,500-square-foot events lawn cater to exclusive private events within the grounds.

These Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara meetings and memories are easily accessed from so many geographical spots: The well-serviced Punta Cana International Airport, which has a lounge for Hyatt guests, sits just eight miles—or a fifteen-minute drive—from these brand-new beachside resorts.
