About Thompson Zihuatanejo, A Beach Resort
Situated along the white sands of Playa La Ropa, the best swimming beach on Mexico’s Pacific coast, Thompson’s refined beachfront luxury will elevate your event with a sophisticated take on the usual Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo hotel and resort experience. Here, your guests can unwind to tranquil waves, roam a lush jungle landscape punctuated by cool waterfalls and tranquil lagoons, and relax in the privacy of one of our swim up suites with private plunge pool.
Inside Thompson Zihuatanejo’s newly renovated one, two and three story buildings, framed by rustling palms and coconut trees, our 56 airy guestrooms and suites carry Thompson’s signature mid-century aesthetic. Accented with parota woods, brass details, Oaxacan clay light fixtures and contemporary Mexican artworks, the style strikes a delicate balance between old world and new, with a subtle urban spin.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Bernardo Cabrera, the accent is on Pacific-to-palapa cuisine — with two restaurants, a range of venues and thousands of square feet of indoor and alfresco entertaining space. Inspired to take traditional wood-fired cooking techniques to new heights, Chef Bernardo Cabrera found the perfect name in Ceniza, the Spanish word for ash. Under a palm-thatched palapa, you’ll be enchanted with Ceniza’s open-air, candlelit ambiance and enticed by a menu crafted daily from the wide array of ingredients sustainably sourced by the chef from our surrounding region.
The possibilities at Thompson Zihuatanejo are virtually unlimited. Celebrate a special occasion at sunset, gather your group, bring the romance, or pop the question. In the privacy of your villa suite, or alone together on the beach, we’ll help you host a Champagne toast, create a special dinner, and light the bonfires for an evening revel. All are available upon reservation.
Note: A minimum of 80% of your wedding party are required to stay at the resort to have a wedding here.
