New Hyatt Regency hotel lined up for Uzbekistan
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has teamed up with the likes of Metric Ventures and Valor Hospitality Partners ahead of the planned opening of Hyatt Regency Bukhara in 2022.
This 223-key property in Uzbekistan signifies Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s ambition to strengthen its footprint in Central Asia.
Hyatt builds up its presence in Uzbekistan
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a franchise agreement with Metric Ventures to create Hyatt Regency Bukhara. The hotel, located on a 6.8-acre expanse of land just outside the historic city of Bukhara, will endeavour to connect guests with inspiring experiences based around the city’s mosques, madrasas and remains of old bazaars.
Expecting to cater for both international and domestic travellers, the property will house extensive dining options, along with a large event space for weddings and other celebratory occasions.
“We are thrilled to announce the second Hyatt Regency hotel in Uzbekistan and the first Hyatt-branded property outside Tashkent,” said Takuya Aoyama, vice president acquisitions and development, Hyatt Hotels. “Bukhara is a special destination for us within Central Asia and highlights our intention to unlock new opportunities for expansion across the region. We would like to build on the momentum of our growth and hope to see Hyatt hotels in other jewels of the country, such as Samarkand and Khiva.”
Julien Bergue, co-founder and managing partner of Valor Hospitality CIS & Middle East, added: “Valor Hospitality is delighted to partner with Metric Ventures in bringing the renowned Hyatt Regency Brand to Bukhara whilst offering Valor’s training-centric culture and award-winning service. Besides offering 223 rooms and suites, Hyatt Regency Bukhara will offer curated and exciting F&B concepts for guests, visitors and Bukhara’s local residents.”
A historically significant location
Bukhara is located on the Silk Road and as a result has long been a centre for trade, scholarship, culture and religion. The city’s historic centre was inscribed as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1993, attracting visitors from across the globe.
Murari Lal Jalan, chairman at MJ Developers, said: “We are pleased to be working with Hyatt to open Hyatt Regency Bukhara, which is expected to be the first five-star hotel in Bukhara.” He added that the company was drawn to the Hyatt Regency brand as a result of the success it has already enjoyed in Tashkent.
Slated to open in 2022, Hyatt Regency Bukhara will be the upper-upscale brand’s fourth hotel in Central Asia, joining Hyatt Regency Tashkent, Hyatt Regency Dushanbe and Hyatt Regency Baku.
