Just in time for summer vacation, Grand Hyatt Hotels expands its luxury line with the addition of a new beachfront property, Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort, to its world-class portfolio. It will open June 15 on the Riviera Maya in Mexico, along the Caribbean Sea.

Located on the iconic Mamitas Beach in the heart of Playa del Carmen, the 314-room Sordo Madaleno-designed urban beach hotel will feature a contemporary design blended with Mayan-inspired elements in the guestrooms, restaurants, bars, lounges and event spaces.

“As the brand celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, we are thrilled to grow our Grand Hyatt brand presence in the region with the opening of Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort,” said Sandra Cordova Micek, Senior Vice President, Global Brands, Hyatt. “Hyatt is committed to being the most preferred hospitality brand by opening in key locations where our guests are traveling, and we have openings planned in Mexico, the Bahamas, Brazil and Colombia.”

Previously announced as Hyatt Playa del Carmen, the property transformed from an upscale resort to a luxury offering while under construction. Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort will now align with the more than 40 Grand Hyatt hotels around the world, recognized by international travelers for their innovative designs and dramatic atmospheres that reflect their distinct environments.

Over the next two years, other Grand Hyatt hotels will debut in Latin America and the Caribbean including Grand Hyatt at Baha Mar, a resort hotel in summer 2015; Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro, an urban resort hotel in winter 2015; and Grand Hyatt Bogota, an urban hotel in spring 2017. Together, these four new Grand Hyatt hotels will join Grand Hyatt Santiago and Grand Hyatt Sao Paulo, which have had a significant presence in Latin America since 1992 and 2002, respectively.
