“Zamá Fun Area”: a project to experience the origin of the Mayan culture
In a clear commitment to innovation, Grupo Piñero carried out a thorough renovation of its emblematic Bahia Principe Grand Tulum hotel in Mexico last year. Under the “Origin” concept, the company undertook a comprehensive image change that takes its inspiration from nature and the roots of the Mayan culture.
The “Zamá Fun Area” project is part of this profound remodeling process, in which the company made a commitment to develop an experiential space for the whole family. The installation has more than 50 different play elements, a splash park, and a children’s playground.
The project has a very positive impact on the children who discover the new play area, boosting customer satisfaction, as evidenced by satisfaction surveys. Since the launch of Zamá Fun Area, it has been possible to verify that the level of satisfaction has increased from 79.4% in 2019 to 92.5% in 2021.
With this children’s entertainment offer, Grupo Piñero brings guests closer to the origins of the Mayan culture with its own elements such as the Tulum jungle or a cenote, in a privileged environment.
