Hyatt has partnered with The Wharf to open a new Park Hyatt hotel at International Finance Square in Changsha, Hunan province, China.
The new luxury hotel, which will mark Park Hyatt’s entry into Central China, is intended to cater to international travellers in Changsha.
Park Hyatt Changsha will have 230 guestrooms along with culinary and wellness experiences, and spaces for meetings and events. It is scheduled to open in 2023.
Hyatt Asia Pacific Growth and Operations president Stephen Ho said: “We look forward to this inaugural collaboration with a high-quality, experienced owner who shares our vision to bring guests an immersive luxury experience in this vibrant city.
“The project further emphasises Hyatt’s commitment to expand its luxury and lifestyle portfolio in Greater China and will enable us to create purposeful long-term growth in the region.”
Hyatt and The Wharf intend to leverage their respective capabilities and expertise to deliver service for guests at the new hotel.
The Wharf Group chairman and managing director Stephen Ng said: “‘Building for Tomorrow’, we have already invested over RMB20bn (over $3bn) and introduced the world’s top luxury brands to make Changsha IFS a sparkling diamond in Central China.
“Park Hyatt will be in excellent company with current and new coveted brands including the latest addition of Apple Store last week.”
Currently, 45 Park Hyatt hotels are open in multiple locations, including Dubai, New York, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, Toronto, Paris, Sydney, Hamburg and Abu Dhabi.
Earlier this month, Hyatt, through its affiliate, signed six new management and franchise agreements for hotels in Europe.
