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.
