Rosewood Mayakoba has appointed a new executive chef, Juan Pablo Loza. Mayakoba, located in Rivera Maya, brings Loza onboard to oversee the resort’s food and beverage operations, as well as its five restaurants. Loza will be taking the leading role at La Ceiba Garden & Kitchen, Casa del Lago, Agave Azul, Punta Bonita and La Cava.
Previously, Loza was part of the team that opened Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, California. He then served as the executive chef at Jumby Bay and executive sous chef at Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos. Most recently Loza was the executive chef and the food and beverage director at the Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to bring my passion for cooking and cultural traditions to Rosewood Mayakoba, where I am already inspired by the deep-seeded traditions and local flavors of Riviera Maya,” said Loza in a release.
