Portugal to embrace first Hyatt hotel

Hyatt Hotels Corporation

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has joined forces with Hotelaria e Turismo, S.A., owned subsidiary of United Investments Portugal and Fibeira, to develop the premier Hyatt-branded property in Portugal.

Slated for a late 2020 opening, Hyatt Regency Lisbon will be situated between Rua Guerra Junqueiro and Avenida da Índia, a stunning waterfront location facing Tejo River, with an impressive inventory of 200 rooms and apartments.

The hotel will be a five-minute drive from Lisbon’s historic city centre and within easy reach of many major attractions, including the two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Bélem Tower and the Jéronimos Monastery.

These nearby sites, along with its prime location across from Lisbon’s conference center and convenient access to the airport, will make the Hyatt Regency brand a natural fit with its appeal to both business and leisure travellers seeking a seamless experience.

“We are delighted by the announcement of plans for the first Hyatt hotel in Portugal, as Lisbon is one of Europe’s leading cities in overnight stays and has quickly established itself as a prime destination not only for leisure travellers, but also for larger conventions and events,” enthused regional vice president development, Hyatt, Nuno Galvão-Pinto. “We look forward to working with United Investments Portugal on this exciting project in Lisbon. This is an important step for Hyatt as we look to expand our brand presence throughout Portugal.”

Hyatt Regency Lisbon will offer a wide range of facilities, including a luxurious spa, a swimming pool, a rooftop terrace bar with views over the river and a beautiful courtyard and garden.

General manager, United Investments Portugal, Carlos Leal stated: “We are thrilled to be working with Hyatt on our first development in Lisbon in a premier riverside location in one of the world’s leading cities. With its warm climate, culture, history, gastronomy and beaches, Lisbon truly has it all.”

Hyatt Regency Lisbon will mark continued growth for the brand in Europe, joining Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée and soon-to-open Hyatt Regency Barcelona Fira and Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid.
