In the last five years, Hyatt has doubled the number of luxury rooms, tripled the number of resorts and quadrupled the number of lifestyle rooms in its portfolio.
On 06MAR, the company announced its expansion into Europe, Africa, and the Middle East (EAME), with 10 per cent of Hyatt's 117,000 rooms in development will be in the region. 45 per cent of the properties that joined Hyatt in 2022 were based in those markets. Notable drivers for the expected regional growth include adding a substantial number of rooms to the hyatt.com booking flow, as well as growth for the Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency and The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brands slated for 2023 and beyond.
“I have no doubt that EAME will continue to be a strong contributor to Hyatt’s global growth journey in the coming years,” said Javier Águila, group president EAME, Hyatt.
