First Hyatt branded resort to open in Phuket, Thailand

Hyatt Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced that a Hyatt affiliate entered into a management agreement with Kamala Bay Ventures for a Hyatt Regency hotel in Phuket, Thailand.

The hotel will be the first Hyatt-branded resort to open in Phuket, one of Southeast Asia’s premier resort destinations. Expected to open in late 2013, Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort will join two existing Hyatt-branded hotels in Thailand, including Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok and Hyatt Regency Hua Hin.

Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort will be located on the west coast of Phuket along the upscale Millionaire’s Mile. Overlooking Kamala Bay and the Andaman Sea, the hotel will offer connections to the bustling areas of the island. The hotel will have 202 guestrooms, in addition to more than 4,300 square feet of meeting facilities, three food and beverage outlets, a club lounge, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool and spa.

As of March 31, the company’s executed contract base consisted of approximately 200 hotels across all brands and regions in which Hyatt hotels operate.
