Thompson Zihuatanejo
This luxury hotel in Mexico offers cool waterfalls and enchanting lagoons. Elegant adobe-inspired villas are nestled along one of Mexico's premier beaches.

Inside Thompson Zihuatanejo’s newly renovated one-, two- and three-story villas, 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 Miguel Baltazar, the accent is on Pacific-to-palapa cuisine — with two restaurants, a range of venues and thousands of square feet of indoor and al fresco entertaining space.

Location Summary
Named for the ‘goddess women’ of native folklore who guide the setting sun to the horizon, balmy Zihuatanejo Bay is home to a laid-back fishing village setting and vibe that are equally ideal for a romantic getaway, an active vacation, a milestone celebration or a destination wedding. Five miles outside the more bustling Ixtapa resort destination, Thompson Zihuatanejo is just a quick 45-minute flight from Mexico City and a 15-minute drive from Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo International Airport (ZIH).
