Hyatt Hotels Corp. expects to open 21 new hotels in its luxury portfolio across the Asia-Pacific region by the end of 2020. 

This expansion includes seven Park Hyatt-branded properties, six hotels each under the Grand Hyatt and Andaz brands and two Alila resorts, boosting Hyatt’s luxury portfolio in the region by more than 25 percent.

Seven Park Hyatt hotels—a record number—are expected to open in less than two years. The Andaz brand is set to double its footprint in Asia-Pacific with openings in major cities such as Seoul, Dubai and Shenzhen, aloFgside resort destinations such as Bali, as well as Sanya and Xiamen in China.
