Hyatt Hotels Corporation will add 21 new luxury hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific by the end of 2020, fuelling Hyatt’s brand expansion in the region. This expansion is comprised of seven Park Hyatt branded properties and six hotels. Each property sits under the Grand Hyatt and Andaz brands, with two Alila branded resorts, boosting Hyatt’s luxury portfolio in the region by more than 25%.

With this expansion, a record number of seven hotels are expected to open in under two years. The Andaz brand, known to offer immersive cultural experiences, is set to double its footprint in Asia Pacific with new openings in major cities such as Seoul, Dubai and Shenzhen, alongside resort destinations such as Bali, Sanya and Xiamen in China.
