Playa Hotels & Resorts B.V., an owner, operator and developer of all-inclusive beach resorts, has announced the conversion and rebranding of Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Dreams CancÃºn to Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta and Hyatt Ziva CancÃºn. Playa has owned both resorts since 2007. The resorts will close at the end of April 2014 and undergo multi-million dollar upgrades and expansions before reopening in late 2014.
Earlier this year, Playa entered into an agreement with an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation to be the first franchisee and initial management company for Hyatt’s new all-inclusive brands: Hyatt Zilara, which “inspires adults to embrace new discoveries through activity-driven experiences; and Hyatt Ziva, which sets the stage to create unforgettable moments that delight, surprise and foster personal connections and stories among groups, families, friends, and soon-to-be friends.”
Scheduled to reopen in the fourth quarter of 2014, Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta includes 337 guestrooms and suites, all with ocean views. This AAA Four Diamond Resort is “secluded in a tropical paradise, surrounded by a beautiful beach and lush tropical foliage.” Scheduled to reopen late in 2014, Hyatt Ziva CancÃºn includes 378 guestrooms and suites, “tastefully decorated with contemporary Mexican design featuring marble and colonial mosaics, as well as a balcony or terrace. Located at the tip of Punta CancÃºn, surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Caribbean Sea, the resort features Delphinus, the first resort dolphinarium in Latin America.” (http://www.playaresorts.com)
