Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened the Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights, marking the fifth Hyatt-branded hotel in the city. A sixth Hyatt-branded hotel, Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square, is expected to open in Dubai later this year. Each of the six properties is developed by wasl Hospitality, a subsidiary of wasl Asset Management.
With two high-rise towers at 538 feet, Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights is located next to the Dubai Creek, providing views across the water and city skyline. The hotel offers access to Dubai International Airport, which is only 10 minutes away. Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Wafi City, The Dubai Mall and the cultural heritage districts are also nearby.
The 464-room hotel's lobby is filled with more than 3,200 square feet of plant walls, flowers and greenery, along with water features and a towering glass ceiling embossed with Swarovski crystals. The open-to-the-sky view helps to bring the outdoor space into the heart of the hotel and illuminates the interior.
The hotel also has 76 luxury suites, including two Royal Suites, each stretching the entire length of the hotel's top two stories. One of the suites has a wrap-around outdoor terrace with a 360-degree view, and the other is designed to include a 23-foot-high dome ceiling and skylights. All suites include access to the exclusive Regency Club lounge on the 32nd floor, providing views of Dubai Creek.
The hotel includes 10,500 square feet of conferencing facilities, including 13 meeting suites and two interchangeable ballrooms to host a range of events. For more private and intimate events, guest can choose Al Manzil, an exclusive residential-style, multi-event enclave; or select one of the Royal Suites.
Also available is the NYSA Spa, featuring the Water Temple, a traditional Hammam, male and female gymnasiums and workout studios. An outdoor pool and eight spa treatment rooms, including two couple suites, complete the wellness facilities.
The Lobby Lounge provides a welcoming area for guests arriving at the hotel. The Pool Bar offers an al fresco setting, allowing guests to unwind by the poolside.
The hotel will soon open Sufra, a buffet-style restaurant. Sufra will feature an interior garden theme extended from the lobby. For gourmet grab-and-go options, Market24 will also soon be available. Meanwhile, La Tablita, expected to open in summer 2015, is a Mexican-themed restaurant.
