LOS CABOS, Mexico, March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, the premier all-inclusive resort to debut under the Hyatt brand, was honored with the American Automobile Association (AAA) Four-Diamond designation, reflecting an exceptional degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail, while offering upscale facilities and a variety of luxurious amenities. The Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos joins the Hyatt Zilara Cancun in receiving this prestigious designation. The two new Hyatt hotels, Hyatt Ziva, for guests of all ages, and Hyatt Zilara, for adults only, were introduced in late 2013 and are owned and managed by Playa Hotels & Resorts. Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and Hyatt Zilara Cancun have quickly established themselves in an elite circle, as only 5.3% of nearly 30,000 hotels approved by AAA make the annual Four-Diamond list.

"We are ecstatic about the instant accolades these two magnificent resorts are receiving," said Bruce Wardinski, CEO for Playa Hotels & Resorts. "It is not only an honor to have Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos and Hyatt Zilara Cancun on the 2014 AAA Four-Diamond list, but an important validation that these brands are elevating the all-inclusive experience for existing travelers as well as creating new opportunities for more travelers to try an all-inclusive experience. The success of our first two resorts is significant as we prepare for the late fall 2014 opening of Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall, Jamaica, and the subsequent openings of Hyatt Ziva Cancun and Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta," added Wardinski.
