An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corp. has entered into a management agreement with CES Pirie Hotel (SA) Pty, an entity wholly owned by Singapore-based construction and property group Chip Eng Seng Corp., to develop a new Hyatt Regency in Adelaide, Australia. 

The new 295-room hotel will mark the return of a Hyatt-branded hotel to Adelaide, continuing Hyatt’s expansion in the country. With construction planned to kick off in early 2020, the Hyatt Regency Adelaide is expected to open in early 2023.

“We are grateful to work with CES Pirie Hotel on the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide and are excited to bring the Hyatt Regency brand, which has a strong legacy and following, back to this vibrant city,” David Udell, Hyatt's group president, Asia Pacific, said in a statement. “Located in Adelaide’s city center, the hotel will provide guests with the tools to stay connected and benefit from the hotel’s intuitive and personalized service.”

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

Hyatt Regency Adelaide will be located on Pirie Street in the center of the city’s central business district. When completed, the hotel will have event space, a Market Café, a Regency Club, a swimming pool, fitness facilities and a rooftop bar.

“The development of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide will mark an important re-entry into Adelaide for the brand and also fill a key gap in Hyatt’s domestic Australian network,” said Monika Dubaj, VP real estate and development, Asia-Pacific, Hyatt. “The hotel is part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travelers as we expand in Australia, with new destinations such as Adelaide and Brisbane that will complement our current portfolio of seven hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.”

The hotel will implement a new, branded mobile app that delivers control to guests and GEMS, a back-office tool that streamlines operations.

While occupancy largely was flat week over week during the seven-day period ending Sept. 19, rate and revenue both declined.

The final day of Hotel Optimization Part 2 focused on booking channels, cleanliness protocols and maximizing revenue in the age of COVID-19.
