The fifty-six newly renovated villas are built with Thompson's signature mid-century aesthetic throughout. Oaxacan clay light fixtures, strike a delicate balance between old world and new, with subtle urban spin. The Swim Up Suites offer uniquely easy access to a poolside stay while still providing guests with stunning beachfront views.

Wood-fired cooking with sunset views.

Thompson Zihuatanejo has two different dining options. Ceniza takes traditional wood-fired cooking under the cover a palm-thatched palapa: a fresh, daily-crafted menu in an open-air, candlelit experience. Hao provides an all-day menu beachside, poolside, or on the restaurant terrace overlooking the water (don't miss out on the sunset views here!).
