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.”

“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.”
