An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corp. has entered into agreements with Realtejo-Hotelaria e Turismo, S.A., an owned subsidiary of United Investments Portugal and Fibeira, to develop the Hyatt Regency Lisbon, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Portugal.

Slated to open in late-2020, the hotel will have 200 guestrooms and apartments as well as a spa, pool, rooftop terrace bar, a courtyard and a garden.

“Lisbon is one of Europe’s leading cities in overnight stays and has quickly established itself as a prime destination not only for leisure travelers, but also for larger conventions and events,” said Nuno Galvão-Pinto, regional VP/development at Hyatt. “This is an important step for Hyatt as we look to expand our brand presence throughout Portugal.”
