Playa Readies For The New Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Cap Cana

Pedro Tomás is taking on the role of general manager for the highly anticipated, all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana and Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana by Playa Hotels & Resorts N.V., set to open today.

The Dominican Republic native has spent his entire career in hospitality and brings first-hand knowledge to his new role at the flagship resorts for the Hyatt All-Inclusive brands. Pedro will oversee the operation of the two resorts which include 750 oceanfront suites on a 40-acre beachfront property.

The all-ages Hyatt Ziva will feature a full-scale water park, extensively themed a la carte restaurants including Noodle & Thread, an Italian-eatery inspired by a vintage tailor shop, a treehouse replica kids club and an 80’s steampunk-themed teens club.

The adults-only Hyatt Zilara boasts some firsts for the brand including a Hindu restaurant inspired by the Venice Simplon Orient Express and an underground cenote-inspired spa featuring the first Himalayan salt lounge in the Dominican Republic.

Together, the resorts will share a 14,000-square-foot fitness centre modelled after an industrial boxing gym, 45,000 square-feet of meeting and event space with wedding venues and a 300-seat open-air amphitheatre.

“Pedro’s service-oriented leadership coupled with his passion, drive and dedication to quality make him the perfect person to lead these flagship resorts for the Hyatt All-Inclusive brands,” said Playa’s Chief Operating Officer, Alex Stadlin. “These resorts are a monumental step forward for both Hyatt and Playa and are a testament to our successful partnership.”

Pedro was previously the general manager of several AAA Four-Diamond recognized properties and is a recipient of the 2016 CHRIS Rising Star Award. An established leader with Playa Hotels & Resorts, Pedro was most recently the general manager for the company’s newly rebranded Hilton La Romana all-inclusive resort.
