If you love the Hyatt Ziva brand, then I have some good news for you. A new property is in the works in and hopefully in 2022 we will see the opening of the Hyatt Ziva Barbados. The Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara are the all-inclusive brands within the Hyatt chain and are personally some of my favorite properties. Since this one is being branded as a “Ziva” property that means it will serve to all families. (As oppose to the “Zilara” properties which are adults only).
The Hyatt Ziva Barbados will be in Carlisle Bay, which is right in Bridgetown — the capital of Barbados. This is a more lively area and where the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados is located. It is also only about 20 minutes away from the airport. Note: This project is currently set to be built by Vision Development Inc. As of now, they have applied for permission to construct this property, but final approval has not yet been granted.
Originally it looked like a Hyatt Centric was originally going to be built in the same location, but I am glad to see the Hyatt Ziva Barbados instead. The plans include a 380-room hotel with 40 condominiums. There will be multiple high-rise buildings ranging between 10 to 18 floors. As of now, the estimated timeline is about two years, but as we’ve seen in the past with new properties in the Caribbean, those timelines are typically stretched out quite a bit.
