Without further ado, here is why Hyatt’s Ziva Cancun and The Grand at Moon Palace won their prestigious titles at this year’s World Travel Awards.

With one of the best spots along the coastline in Cancun’s Hotel Zone, it’s no wonder that the Hyatt Ziva Cancun was awarded the title of ‘Mexico’s Leading Beach Resort’. The resort has two stunning white-sand beaches to relax on, just a short walk away from the hotel.

Guests that want to pamper themselves are invited to sip a cocktail and relax in a beachside cabana, whilst those who are a little more adventurous can try several water sports, including surfing, kayaking, and paddleboarding.

This is only the beginning of the wonderful water activities available at the Hyatt Ziva Cancun: visitors can choose from up to 3 infinity pools to swim in, with two reserved for adults only. There are also a host of waterfront restaurants on-site, ensuring there are plenty of opportunities to capture the perfect sunset over the Caribbean sea.

If that wasn’t enough, the resort even boasts a number of spectacular swim-up suites so that guests can dive into the pool directly from their room in a matter of seconds.

As always, the Hyatt Ziva Cancun continues to wow guests with its other excellent amenities, not limited to a state-of-the-art Gym, 7 bars and lounges to enjoy drinks in, and 10 on-site restaurants and eateries suitable for the whole family to enjoy.
