India already has over 30 Hyatt properties spread across the vast country with most Hyatt brands represented, but 2021 will see a further 6 properties (across two brands) added to Hyatt’s India portfolio and the hotelier plans to have over 50 properties in the country by 2023.
Hyatt’s India Expansion
Hyatt has confirmed that by 2023, it will add more than 3,600 rooms to its existing portfolio of 32 Hyatt-branded hotels across eight distinct brands in the country, which include the Andaz, Alila, Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyatt Centric, and Hyatt Place brands (this figure doesn’t include a number of properties affiliated with Hyatt but that are not flagged as Hyatt properties).
Dhruva Rathore, Hyatt’s vice president real estate & development, India, had this to say:
“Hyatt remains focused on thoughtfully accelerating its brand growth and momentum by transforming the hotel landscape in India with planned openings in some of the most frequented and desirable destinations in the country. Hyatt’s pipeline in India reflects a thoughtful growth strategy by expanding into new markets and leisure destinations that are relevant to our guests and customers. We are thrilled to collaborate with a number of new and existing owners to bring these exciting projects to fruition. We are also focused on expanding our independent collection portfolio by teaming up with owners and developers who are eager to leverage our global distribution network and World of Hyatt loyalty program.”
2021 will see Hyatt add 6 new properties in India with two new Hyatt Regency properties and four new Hyatt Place properties opening their doors this year. The Hyatt Regency brand will enter two new markets…
- Hyatt Regency Jaipur Mansarovar
- Hyatt Regency Trivandrum
…while the Hyatt Place brand will enter four new markets:
- Hyatt Place Bodh Gaya
- Hyatt Place Jaipur Malviya Nagar
- Hyatt Place Vadodara
- Hyatt Place Bharuch
Hyatt’s press release hasn’t provided any specific opening dates for any of the six properties that are scheduled to open in 2021 and none of them currently has their own website or appears in search results on Hyatt’s website. That would seem to indicate that the openings are far from imminent so we shouldn’t expect to see these properties open for business until late 2021.
Hyatt plans to have over 50 properties in India by 2023 and the expansion is set to get a kick-start in 2021 with 6 new properties opening across Jaipur, Trivandrum, Bodh Gaya, Vadodara, and Bharuch.
