Hyatt Hotels has unveiled plans to bolster its presence in Europe by opening a new Thompson Hotels-branded property in Seville, a major tourist destination in Spain.

An affiliate of Hyatt has finalised an agreement with Hoteles Color Especial for the development of Thompson Seville, which is expected to open in 2026.

Thompson Seville will be the fourth Thompson Hotels property in Europe, alongside Thompson Madrid, which debuted in 2022.

Hyatt group president for EAME Javier Águila said: “We have ambitious plans for our brand expansion in Europe, Africa and the Middle East and today’s announcement is a true testament to our continued success in strengthening our position and ever-growing brand footprint in the region.

“We are honoured to work with Hoteles Color Especial as we start our journey in a new city for Hyatt—the vibrant Seville, in which we aim to create yet another unique and luxurious experience for leisure travellers. The Thompson Hotels brand has a vast potential in our region and particularly in cities that combine a strong leisure and lifestyle offering.”

The luxury lifestyle property will feature 101 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant and a rooftop bar with a pool.
