Hyatt Hotels Corporation is expected to add more than 20 new hotels in the Latin America and Caribbean regions through to 2024.

The strong development pipeline in the area includes luxury and lifestyle hotels and resort openings, including the expansion of Hyatt brands into new markets.

Regional firsts

The group cites leisure demand as a key driver of this growth, which includes a number of firsts. For example, the firm is introducing the first Park Hyatt hotel in Mexico, the 162-key Park Hyatt Los Cabos and Residences, arriving in Q1 2023, around the same time as the first Andaz hotel in Mexico’s historic capital city, the 213-room Andaz Mexico City Condesa.

Further planned openings in the region are Secrets Tulum Resort & Beach Club in Mexico and Hyatt Centric San Jose in Escazu, Costa Rica. Hyatt is also expanding brand presence in new markets throughout Mexico that include Monterrey with Hyatt Place Monterrey Valle and Hyatt House Monterrey Valle/San Pedro, both expected to open this year, and Thompson Monterrey, slated to open in 2024; and San Miguel de Allende with NUMU, part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt.

Unique experiences

Camilo Bolaños, senior vice president of development, Latin America and the Caribbean at Hyatt, said: “Latin America and the Caribbean are top leisure destinations for global travellers, and we continue to grow Hyatt’s brand presence in this important region to offer unique experiences to high-end travellers in new markets and sought-after destinations.

“These exciting new hotels and resorts across Hyatt’s portfolio of upscale hotel brands reinforce our commitment to thoughtfully growing in key markets that matter to our guests, World of Hyatt loyalty members and customers.”

Inclusive increases

As a result of last year’s Apple Leisure Group acquisition, Hyatt’s Latin America and Caribbean region’s expected growth includes a nearly 20% expansion of Hyatt’s Inclusive Collection expected by the end of 2024 with the debut of new luxury all-inclusive resorts such as Secrets Impression Moxché (Mexico), the 125-key Secrets Impression Isla Mujeres (Mexico), Dreams Cozumel Cape Resort & Spa (Mexico), the 350-key Dreams Estrella del Mar Mazatlán Golf & Spa Resort (Mexico), the mammoth 520-room Dreams Flora Resort & Spa and Secrets Tides Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Zoëtry Marigot Bay St. Lucia and Secrets St. Lucia Resort & Spa, which will arrive in 2023.

Hyatt’s Inclusive Collection delivers elevated all-inclusive experiences with resort brands including Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Vivid Hotels & Resorts (coming soon), Alua Hotels & Resorts and Sunscape Resorts & Spas.

Javier Coll, group president of global business development and innovation at Apple Leisure Group, said: “The Inclusive Collection’s expansion in Latin America and the Caribbean brings one of the world’s largest regional portfolios of luxury all-inclusive resorts to global travellers seeking seamless, world-class experiences. The Inclusive Collection’s new and existing properties offer unforgettable experiences for everyone and every stay occasion.”
