Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a management agreement with Pelca Development for a Hyatt Place hotel within the Aruba Airport Business Center in Oranjestad, Aruba. 

The 116-room hotel will be the first Hyatt Place hotel in Aruba, adjacent to the Reina Beatrix International Airport, which currently serves more than two million passengers per year by more than 20 international carriers.

Hyatt Place Aruba Airport will be located on an approximate 2.1-acre mixed-use development site with 21,000 square feet of office space, as well as an 8,000-square foot food court, retail shops, a casual dining restaurant, and car rental facilities.

The hotel will have a covered walkway for direct pedestrian access between the hotel and Reina Beatrix International Airport.

With construction expected to begin in early 2017, Hyatt Place Aruba Airport is projected to open in late 2018, and will join the already open Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino. This hotel will be the fourth Hyatt Place hotel in the Caribbean, joining Hyatt Place Manatí, Hyatt Place San Juan/Bayamón and Hyatt Place San Juan/City Center in Puerto Rico.
