The Grand Hyatt brand has announced that it will add a new resort, Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort, to its world-class portfolio when the hotel opens on the Riviera Maya along the Caribbean Sea on June 15, 2015.The 314-room Sordo Madaleno-designed urban beach hotel will boast a unique fusion of sleek and contemporary design aesthetics blended with Mayan-inspired elements in the guestrooms, restaurants, bars, lounges and event spaces that pay tribute to local surroundings. Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort will have a coveted location on the iconic Mamitas Beach, in the heart of Playa del Carmen, just steps from the city’s famous 5th Avenue.
Over the next two years, other Grand Hyatt hotels will début in Latin America and the Caribbean including Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar, a resort hotel in summer 2015; Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro, an urban resort hotel in winter 2015; and Grand Hyatt Bogota, an urban hotel in spring 2017. Together, these four new Grand Hyatt hotels will join Grand Hyatt Santiago and Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo, which have had a significant presence in Latin America since 1992 and 2002, respectively.
Previously announced as Hyatt Playa del Carmen, the property underwent an extraordinary transformation from an upscale resort to a luxury offering while under construction. Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort will now align with the more than 40 Grand Hyatt hotels around the world, recognized by international travellers for their innovative designs and dramatic, exciting atmospheres that reflect their distinctive cultural environment.
