New Hyatt All-inclusive Opening in Barbados: From Deals We Like, a new all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva will be opening in Barbados in 2022. This property was originally supposed to be a Hyatt Centric, and I’ve been keeping my eye on it for a few years now because I’d love to visit Barbados on points. Now, the design has switched to the Hyatt Ziva all-inclusive model. Construction has not yet started, so I’d be shocked if it actually opens in 2022. Hyatt is famous for delays on their Caribbean properties. Are you excited for this new resort?
