Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has recently announced the opening of Hyatt Regency Pune, the city’s first upper upscale deluxe hotel and residences complex. Catering to leisure and business travellers who visit the information technology, automotive and manufacturing hubs in one of India’s fastest growing cities, Hyatt Regency Pune is the first Hyatt property in Pune and will deliver authentic hospitality to its guests. This premier, gateway hotel is situated within the Weikfield IT Park in Pune’s upcoming IT corridor, a short drive from Lohegaon International Airport and 10 minutes from the upmarket entertainment areas of Koregaon Park and Kalyani Nagar. Accommodation and Design
Clad in warm golden Rajasthani stone, Hyatt Regency Pune is a contemporary hotel with extensive banquet, wedding and conference facilities, two innovative restaurants, a bar, a lounge, a gourmet store, a full service business centre, and a Hyatt Pure™ spa and fitness centre. With 222 guestrooms and suites now available, and 84 serviced apartments scheduled to open in 2011, the sprawling structure has beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces and dramatically lit water features which allow guests to feel a distinct ‘sense of arrival’ as they approach the hotel. Floor-to-ceiling swathes of glass separate the glistening marble lobby from the outdoor water fountains and tree-filled driveway.
The large, open-plan public spaces of the hotel’s interior have been artfully divided into smaller, more intimate areas by the hotel’s interior designers – Robert Bilkey and Oscar Llinas of BLD, USA. The clean, modern lines of Hyatt Regency Pune’s décor have been reiterated in the impressive chandelier which catches guests’ eyes at the hotel entrance. Made of thousands of icicle-like shards of glimmering crystal, the massive chandelier lights the way to the hotel’s two restaurants, the bar and the lounge area. A coloured glass bridge runs through the upper lobby and connects the hotel to the banquet and convention areas.
Hyatt Regency Pune’s comfortable and stylish guestrooms are filled with natural sunlight and decorated in soft neutral tones, highlighted by warm, golden sycamore wood accents and translucent glass. An outstanding feature in each room is the ‘sanctuary bathroom’ with a sparkling white Italian marble floor, free-standing bath tub and separate walk-in rain shower. All rooms are equipped to suit the needs of today’s business traveller — with wired and wireless Internet access, 40-inch LCD TVs and iPod docking stations. Spacious suites ranging from 905 to 1,775 sq ft (84 to 165 sq m) offer city views with luxurious living and dining areas.
