Two Hyatt-branded luxury properties, Hyatt at Capital Centre and Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, will open in Abu Dhabi within the next 12 months as part of Hyatt Hotels & Resorts’ commitment to provide guests with distinctive accommodation in key destinations.
Speaking in advance of the Arabian Travel Market 2010 event. Peter Fulton, managing director for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts in South West Asia, said, “As a leader in authentic hospitality, Hyatt eagerly looks forward to the opening of these two luxury properties in Abu Dhabi, a culturally-rich destination with a global vision.”
This year, the first Hyatt property in the UAE capital, Hyatt at Capital Centre, will open followed by Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi in early 2011.
Conveniently linked to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the 189-room Hyatt at Capital Centre, occupying levels 18 to 32 of the 525-foot Capital Gate building, will have a sleek contemporary design and offer guests a refined experience. Due to the unique contour of the tower, each room in the hotel will have a different shape and orientation and the hotel’s ‘sky lobby’ will be suspended 80 metres above the ground on the 18th floor, offering panoramic views of the city.
Capital Gate forms a major part of the Capital Centre development, the AED $8 billion business and residential micro city being constructed around the newly opened Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Located on the northern part of Saadiyat Island, surrounded by the 18-hole championship Saadiyat Beach golf course, and boasting a 5.5-mile (9 kilometer) stretch of pristine natural beach, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi will be the first resort hotel in the Park Hyatt brand in the Middle East. It will be the third Park Hyatt property in the Middle East and the fourth Hyatt property in the UAE.
Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi will be located within Saadiyat Beach District, which is in close proximity to Saadiyat Cultural District, which will be home to Zayed National Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi museums. Occupying 18.5 acres (75,000 square meters), Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi will feature 270 spacious guest rooms with a minimum of 592 square feet (55sqm) of space, 44 villas, a selection of world class restaurants, as well as exclusive facilities dedicated to conferences, events and recreation.
Saadiyat Island is made up of seven districts: Saadiyat Cultural District, Saadiyat Marina, Saadiyat Beach, Saadiyat Promenade, Saadiyat Lagoons, Saadiyat Reserve and Saadiyat Retreat.
