Ingredients for Success: Playa Hotels & Resorts’ Recipe for F&B Excellence

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – as a global hospitality leader that has taken all-inclusive resorts to a new level, Playa Hotels & Resorts is a powerhouse offering unique culinary experiences for travelers. With the opening of its newest concept, The blind butcher at Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana, Playa raised the bar on the type of food and beverage (F&B) experiences travelers can find at an all-inclusive resort.

With a portfolio comprised of 24 properties with 9,027 across three global territories, Playa Hotels & Resorts is responsible for the daily management of more than 350 food and beverage establishments. Its innovative and far-reaching operation places Playa alongside the world's leaders in food and beverage management: with more locations than The Cheesecake Factory and more than Ruth's Chris Steak House, Fogo de Chão and Morton's The Steakhouse combined, Playa offers style in hospitality. From excellent five-star restaurants, innovative and inviting family concepts, to exclusive romantic venues and casual pool bars, Playa is constantly looking for what it can and should serve to exceed travelers' expectations.

For the executive vice president and chief investment officer of Playa, Fernando Mulet, the key to Playa's culinary success lies in its relentless pursuit of culinary excellence, combined with a seductive element of surprise. “The all-inclusive traveler is unique: he arrives at the destination with a single objective, which is to enjoy every moment to the fullest, without restrictions, and that includes what he eats and what he drinks.”

Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana launches The Blind Butcher for a la carte dining and entertainment

The traveler's desire to enjoy every moment to the fullest takes center stage at Playa's latest venture, The Blind Butcher at Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana. As a testament to its commitment to redefining the all-inclusive luxury experience, this all-inclusive dining experience menu is open to both the public and hotel guests outside of the all-inclusive hotel package.

Designed as a seductive, multi-sensory experience, The Blind Butcher is the world's first speakeasy located in an all-inclusive resort. Hidden behind the facade of a 1950s butcher shop, the venue offers a combination of exquisite food and exhilarating entertainment, satisfying both travelers' palates and their sense of adventure.

Its design exudes meticulous attention to detail, from the bar's intricate patterns that echo old English French restaurants to the carefully selected lighting that casts a warm, inviting glow. Entertainment is enjoyed tableside and equipped with top-notch live entertainment technology, making it a highly desired addition to Hyatt's luxury guests.

For Mulet, “The Blind Butcher is a testament to the relentless pursuit to constantly elevate the offering and provide a unique and incomparable experience to Playa guests.”

“Years ago, a hotelier might have feared a culinary-minded guest, but we welcome them and are eager to accommodate them. Instead of a rich but bland buffet, we understand that the all-inclusive guest wants to try new gourmet expressions. They want to explore quality rather than quantity, succulent flavor rather than tried-and-true temptations, and that includes experiencing things outside the already extensive all-inclusive offerings. Every day we see where our guests' ambitious taste buds want to go, and we work to exceed those expectations with each new dining concept,” said Mulet.
