Conceptualized by Thompson Hotels’ design team in collaboration with interior design company Andres Saavedra Design, the 54-suite Thompson Zihuatanejo strikes a balance between traditional Mexican architecture and mid-century contemporary design.
Each suite is clad in a cool color palette of light grays and charcoals accented by sandy hues with taupe. Warm, local woods bring the outdoors inside to highlight the resort’s locale surrounded by lush gardens and the coastline. Most suites are planned to include private infinity plunge pools, with many set along the hotel’s freshwater lagoon.
Guestrooms and public spaces feature Parota furnishings with brass details, hand-woven Mexican rugs and traditional mosaic tiling, local stone finishes, Oaxacan clay light fixtures and artisanal accents. A local Mexican artist was commissioned to create the lobby’s sculpture made of wood and molten brass native to the region.
The development will also be home to the on-site restaurant, CENIZA, which showcases dimensional black concrete tiles and a custom metal light installation. Additionally, a day-to-night beach club experience, HAO, will offer all-day dining options. Thompson Zihuatanejo will have three pools, event space and an outdoor garden space.
