30th Park Hyatt property opens in Chennai, India

Park Hyatt Chennai, Park Hyatt’s third hotel in India and the first Park Hyatt hotel in the “Gateway to southern India,” has opened.

Located next to the Governor’s Residence and adjacent to the thriving green area of the Guindy National Park, the hotel is but a 15-minute drive from the city’s domestic and international airport. It features 201 rooms and suites, two restaurants, the Antahpura Spa, a fitness center and The Apartment, the hotel’s meeting facility.

The hotel offers two restaurants: The Dining Room, overlooking the lily pond, and The Flying Elephant, opening in early 2013.

Each of the six treatment rooms at the Antahpura Spa overlook the greenery of the Guindy. The hotel also has a fitness center, Sphere, hot and cold plunge pools, steam and sauna facilities, a yoga studio and separate cardio and strength training areas.

The hotel also showcases custom-made art installations that have been curated around the concept of Indian textiles and heritage.

Park Hyatt Chennai has been said to “embrace the serenity of the surrounding Guindy National Park with flowing landscapes and relaxing interiors, complemented by a graceful lily pond dotting the heart of the inner courtyard."
