Thompson Zihuatanejo to debut later this year in Mexico

Thompson Hotels will debut its newest luxury resort in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, in late 2018, following a repositioning and extensive redesign. 

Located oceanfront along the destination’s Playa La Ropa beach on Mexico’s majestic Pacific Coast, Thompson Zihuatanejo will feature 54 suites, multiple food and beverage outlets, and stunning pools, all inspired by the natural beauty of the land, sand and sea. 

“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, chief executive of Two Roads Hospitality.

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

Conceptualised by Thompson Hotels’ design team in partnership with locally-based interior design company Andres Saavedra Design, Thompson Zihuatanejo is one of the area’s only beachfront properties, located on a secluded stretch of pristine coastline along a protected bay.

Set among lush gardens, the resort’s oversized suite accommodations – all offering separate living areas and private balconies or terraces – strike a delicate balance between traditional Mexican architecture and mid-century modern design.


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. 

Thompson Zihuatanejo will have three pools, including an adults-only, oceanfront infinity pool, a family-friendly option with swim-up bar, and a pool offered exclusively for guests staying in swim-up suites. 

An ideal venue for both social and corporate events, Thompson Zihuatanejo will offer premier oceanfront event space to 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 comfortably host groups of 12-50 people.
