A couple of weeks ago, while visiting Jamaica for a vacation of our own, we had a chance to tour the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara resorts in Rose Hall, Jamaica. Combining two resorts in one, the side by side properties accommodate for whatever kind of vacation you are looking for! The Ziva is Hyatt’s family resort brand, offering quality and service you are used to with Hyatt, with an experience aimed at giving families everything they could want to do and more! The Zilara resort, located on the same property, but in it’s own section, gives adults looking for something a little more private the opportunity to use the same beautiful property and beaches!
The property, including a main section consisting of a beautiful and updated remodeled Ritz Carlton resort as well as specifically and newly built sections, sits on a long stretch of beach only a 15 minute drive from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport. As soon as you enter the lobby, the quality and Caribbean style jumps right out at you.
From there, making your way out to the main property, you are instantly looking out over a beautiful view over the pool and down to the Caribbean Sea.
The rest of the property is completely refreshed with beautiful white buildings and gorgeous tan and blue interiors that feel clean and modern and but still classic Caribbean!
Offering all the activities and restaurant selection you would expect from a 4.5 star Jamaican resort, the wedding venues and program are what really stood out to us! Though Jamaica is one of the few islands in the Caribbean that rarely gets more than rain even in the Caribbean’s stormy season, no wedding at either property is booked without having a backup location booked along with it in case the weather does turn on your big day. But with outdoor locations like this (and more!), how could you not want to have your memories made here. Even unmade up you can see the possibilities are endless:
But this, easily, is one of our favourite venues we’ve seen yet. With two more gazebos on either end of this beach deck, this location offers an intimate venue for 20, out surrounded by the ocean, or a larger venue for up to 200 people including the other gazebos! The pictures they showed of the set ups here were gorgeous!
On top of how beautiful the locations are, all three of the venues above are mere minutes from the authentic Jamaica Jerk Chicken Shack open daily on the beach! Just don’t get the Jerk Sauce on your dress!
