Hyatt Zilara

Hyatt Zilara and Ziva Rose Hall near Montego Bay, Jamaica

Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 12:00:00 am

Welcome to our newest Review. I was invited to attend to the Official Grand Opening of the Hyatt Ziva and Zilara, located a few miles east of Montego Bay in Rose Hall, Jamaica

There are two sides of the resort. One is the Ziva (the family side) and the newly built Zilara which is adults only.

Staying on the Zilara side will gain entrance to Ziva...but not the other way around.
Everything is new...even the new expanded beach. 

Both I and my associate Hedy were invited to the Official Grand Opening and we are featured very briefly at about the 43 second mark (don't blink) for an instant in the following Official Video.


These magnificent Hotels are on the site of the Former Ritz Carlton Rose Hall, east of Montego Bay on the north Caribbean coast of Jamaica. Luxury is in the air at very reasonable costs. Ask me about the award winning nearby golf courses including the White Witch Golf Course and many outside excursions, including deep sea fishing,mountain biking,zip-lines,beach horseback riding and more.

The resort is run by a Jamaican Staff..and the "Feeling of the Real Jamaica" has not been lost like so many other of the newer resorts in Jamaica.

The Moroccan themed bar upstairs on the Ziva side looks like a trendy South Beach Bistro.

This resort has a Brazilian steak house, French Restaurant, Authentic Jerk Outdoor Restaurant, Coffee Bar with Pastries 24/7..ooh la la.

There is NEVER any extra Booking fees or 'hidden charges' when you book with me (Sue).


Take the family, take your friends and come on down to the Hyatt a few short miles East of Montego Bay, Jamaica,where this all inclusive
resort will amaze your senses.

Sue's First Blog Post

Hi travel fans out there. Today is a brand new day..prepare for a bi-weekly dose of Sue's Travel Adventures. Tips, Suggestions and Reviews of AllInclusive Resorts in the Caribbean, Mexico and Cruises.

Monkeys, milkshakes & magic.

Imagine creating an entirely new genre of luxury beachfront family hotels – from scratch. You’d start with the most unspoiled white-sand beaches in Mexico and Jamaica. You’d cater to families, but welcome couples, brides, grooms and groups.

Accommodations would be luxurious, from beachfront Jacuzzi® swim-up suites to rooftop Sky Suites to private oceanfront villas. Here you’d discover personal concierge, 24-hour room service, baby amenities and toys. You’d offer supervised daytime activities and clubs for teens, tweens and toddlers, allowing parents to enjoy luxuries such as cozy beach beds with beach butler service, adult pools, swim-up bars and Zen-inspired spas. Then you’d make the entire experience Gourmet Inclusive®, with superb international à la carte cuisine and other gourmet delights.

What would you call these enchanting Caribbean beach escapes under brilliant indigo skies? You’d call them Azul.

Karisma resorts, who operate all El Dorado, Nickelodeon, Azul and more made an announcement last week:

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Travel Agent was on hand Tuesday afternoon for a monumental signing between Karisma Hotels & Resorts and the Jamaica Tourist Board.
It calls for 10 new Karisma Hotels & Resorts properties representing 5,000 new rooms in Jamaica. All of the rooms will be ready within the next 10 years, with the first scheduled to open around the summer of 2018.
Dubbed "Sugarcane," the resort represents an investment of more than $100 million,Rafael Feliz, Jr., corporate brand manager for Premier Worldwide Marketing, told Travel Agent last year. 
Sugarcane will be located in the parish of St. Ann and is about 40 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. It is also 10 minutes from the famous Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios. Mandy Chomat, vice president of sales and marketing for Karisma Hotels & Resorts, told us in December that it will be the only area in the Caribbean with such a concentration of luxury hotels.
Travel Agent was told by several Karisma Hotels & Resorts officials that there has been no official discussion on whether the company's new Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts brand will be included in the resort complex.
For those of you who don't know...Karisma is the gourmet inclusive brand. Best and I mean Best food I have found anywhere in the islands. Prepare to have your mouth water...and gain one or two pounds. Jamaica here we come..
Last summer I took my son, his wife and daughter to Azul Beach in Cancun. Upon arrival my granddaughter was greeted by Spongebob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a big milkshake with whipped cream..I would rather have that than a cocktail..yum..
Here are a few photos of that trip..first and foremost, my granddaughter Samantha!!
