Leisure travel fuels Hyatt expansion


SINGAPORE, 12 September 2022; Hyatt Hotels Corporation will expand its brand portfolio in the Asia Pacific with a robust pipeline of hotels and resorts due to open in the last quarter of 2022 and 2023.

Hyatt will bring several brands to new markets, such as the arrival of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Japan, the Andaz brand in Thailand, and the Hyatt Centric brand in Southeast Asia with a new hotel in Malaysia.

These upcoming openings follow the debut of the following hotels earlier this year:

• Alila Kothaifaru Maldives in the pristine Raa Atoll, April 2022

• Park Hyatt Jakarta, marking the arrival of the Park Hyatt brand in Indonesia, July 2022

“Following the relaxation of travel restrictions across much of Asia Pacific, we remain confident in the region’s path to recovery,” said Hyatt senior vice president commercial, Asia Pacific, Carina Chorengel.

“With nearly 70% of our global portfolio classified as Luxury and Upper Upscale, we are well positioned to meet the growing demand from high-end travellers in each segment we serve.”

Hyatt will introduce to the Asia Pacific several brands for the first time.

They include:

Fuji Speedway Hotel, the first hotel under The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in Japan, will welcome travellers for a one-of-a-kind motorsports experience upon its expected opening in October 2022. Located in Shizuoka and 80 minutes by car from Tokyo, the 120-room hotel has views of Mount Fuji. It is close to the Fuji Speedway racing circuit, offering an unforgettable getaway for motorcar lovers and professional racers, business executives, couples and families alike. 

Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu will be the Hyatt Centric brand’s first hotel in Southeast Asia, offering intrepid explorers the ideal launchpad into Sabah and its abundant natural beauty and indigenous cultures with its prime location in the city’s downtown area. Slated to open in October 2022, the hotel will be crowned with a rooftop swimming pool, restaurant and bar with views of the South China Sea. All 222 rooms and suites have a private balcony with views of the South China Sea, green hills or the city centre.

Andaz Pattaya Jomtien Beach will mark the anticipated debut of the Andaz brand in Thailand during the fourth quarter of 2022. Just a two-hour drive from Bangkok, the 204-room oceanfront property’s signature features are the four-and six-bedroom heritage houses with dedicated butler service and private pools and a traditional Tea House, “Ruen Thai,” which is available for ceremonies, monk blessings and meditation, as well as an afternoon tea in a peaceful setting.
