Introducing New Park Hyatt and Andaz Properties to Its Luxury Portfolio
Hospitality leader Hyatt continues to expand its brand presence with a series of new openings catering to luxury travellers in pursuit of the latest lifestyle experiences and wellbeing offerings. The growth in new hotels comprises two Park Hyatt properties and two resort hotels under the Andaz brand in urban and cultural destinations including Xiamen, Niseko, Bali and Auckland.
Collectively the properties will showcase Hyatt’s commitment to sophisticated design working with many of the world’s most renowned architects and interior designers as part of an exemplary stay experience for discerning leisure and business travellers.
Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono
Following the soft opening in January, Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono, the third Park Hyatt brand property in Japan, is scheduled to take bookings for stays in late 2020. In addition to bringing the Park Hyatt brand’s refined home-away-from-home hospitality to the northern island of Hokkaido, the hotel also offers guests enriching experiences steeped in carefully curated art, fine cuisine and contemporary design.
Designed primarily by Melbourne’s BAR studio in conjunction with Nikken Sekkei and Fujita Corporation as a stylish year-round mountain escape, Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono is surrounded by pristine wilderness underscored by a sense of calm, matched with the signature sophistication of the Park Hyatt brand. All 100 hotel guestrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering breathtaking views of Mount Yotei or the Annupuri mountain ranges. 9 of the 28 suites come with a private hot spring onsen, ideal for a leisurely soak after an active day. Located at the edge of Mt. Annupuri, the hotel’s outdoor chapel surrounded by water sets the stage for a stunning and memorable wedding ceremony and is connected to a ballroom designed to create extraordinary events and weddings.
Initially conceived by world-renowned Indonesian designer, the late Jaya Ibrahim, Andaz Xiamen is a modern mansion inspired by the tropical Nanyang style and the city’s sobriquet as a ‘Garden by the Sea’. The hotel has been conceived as a modern mansion inspired by tropical Nanyang style. Andaz Xiamen features a mansion like façade surrounded by tropical plants and a water landscape. The courtyard like lift lobby welcomes guests with an artwork of a bougainvillea tree hanging from the ceiling, while repeated arches and graphic tiling evoke the architectural detailing of a Nanyang style mansion. The 304 guestrooms feature natural textures and materials for a relaxed feel throughout including special touches such as rattan backed armchairs, woven bamboo wall paneling and timber louvres.
Andaz Xiamen has opened on 8th September 2020 to provide an unprecedented stay to high-end travellers.
Park Hyatt Auckland
Designed by Ali Reda from ar+d in Singapore and partnering with local Bossley Architects, the seven-storey Park Hyatt Auckland has been designed to reflect the Māori wharenui (communal house) – a place that holds families, communities and tribes. The wharenui is fundamental to Māori life and stands as the beating heart of Māori culture.
The exterior of the hotel centres on the notion of a Māori cloak around the building, creating a double skin offering warmth, privacy and beauty. The elegant and comfortable interiors were designed by the UK-based Conran and Partners to curate a home away from home atmosphere. Ranging from 47 sqm rooms to a 245 sqm Presidential Suite, all 195 guestrooms feature Māori accents, custom-designed tukutuku panels and rugs made from New Zealand wool. In addition, all 23 suites will offer commanding views with the Presidential Suite positioned on the rooftop, featuring an internal garden and a large 125 sqm terrace to entertain and soak up the spectacular panoramic views.
Park Hyatt Auckland has opened on 15th September 2020 to welcome guests with the brand’s contemporary expressions of century-old traditions and authentic experiences.
Designed by sought-after architect Tierra Design of Bangkok and Japanese interior design firm Spin Design Studio, Andaz Bali will be the first Andaz property in Indonesia. The two celebrated firms also co-designed the adjacent Hyatt Regency Bali which opened in December 2018. Inspired by traditional Balinese scenery, Andaz Bali will provide a unique immersive Sanur experience through a modern interpretation of a vibrant and peaceful seaside village.
Located in Sanur, one of Bali’s original tourist destinations best known for its old-world charm, beaches and spectacular sunrises, the 149-room beachfront resort offers two restaurants, four swimming pools and shared wellness facilities with Hyatt Regency Bali.
Andaz Bali is set to open in Q2 2021, delivering an innovative stay experience complemented by the brand’s attentive and unscripted service to lifestyle connoisseurs.
