Hyatt to operate five new properties in India
Yoshita Singh/PTI / Chicago December 19, 2009, 13:56 IST

Hyatt Hotels today said it will partner with Indian real estate developer DB Hospitality to operate five new hotel properties in India as the global hospitality company seeks to expand its footprint in the "world's most vibrant emerging market".

Under the management pacts between city- headquartered Hyatt and Mumbai-based DB Hospitality, part of DB Group, the five properties are slated to open between mid-2010 and early 2014. The properties are Park Hyatt Mumbai, Grand Hyatt Goa, Grand Hyatt Pune, Hyatt Place Pune and Hyatt Place Mundra.

DB Hospitality would develop and own the properties, which would include luxury and upscale guest accommodations, serviced apartments, authentic dining options and banquet/ meeting facilities.
"The introduction of five new Hyatt properties in India, one of the world's most vibrant emerging markets, illustrates our commitment to expanding our global footprint," Senior Vice-President of real estate and development for Hyatt Ratnesh Verma said in a statement.

Park Hyatt Mumbai is projected to open in the first quarter of 2014 and will include 255 guest rooms and 55 serviced apartments. The full-service hotel would house exclusive banqueting and meeting facilities and be part of the iconic 125-story India Tower in South Mumbai.

Grand Hyatt Goa is under construction and is slated to open in the third quarter of 2010. It would include 314 guest rooms. Grand Hyatt Pune would open in the third quarter of 2011 and include 325 rooms and multiple dining, banquet and meeting facilities, while Hyatt Place Pune is projected to open in the first quarter of 2012 and have 130 rooms.

The 150-room Hyatt Place Mundra is slated to open in the third quarter of 2013 and would be located in the Special Economic Zone at the Mundra Port.

Hyatt has operated properties in India since 1983. Currently, it manages five hotels in India, including one in Goa, Mumbai, New Delhi and Kolkata each. Park Hyatt Mumbai is projected to open in the first quarter of 2014 and will include 255 guest rooms and 55 serviced apartments.

The full-service hotel would house exclusive banqueting and meeting facilities and be part of the iconic 125-story India Tower in South Mumbai.

=========================================================

I am guessing this is the "iconic" tower everyone is getting all excited abt!!! However, this hardly looks like a building suitable for a hotel, leave alone one run by Hyatt.....

However, what the good news is, is that wherever and whenever it is built in Mumbai, it will be India's first "true" supertall, and an icon!!!

-------------------

Slightly off topic, but its nice to see all the good chains come to Mumbai....Sheraton, Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, Four Seasons, Shangri La, Holiday Inn/Intercontinental, Wyndham.....But the one I think Mumbai truly "deserves" (not needs) is a Waldorf=Astoria property. What say, Juntaa!!!

I didnt realize Oberoi is no longer a Hilton.....and you seem to be uber-optimistic about the Park Hyatt property, considering that it is still 4 years out (and considering the reputation of big ticket pvt projects in India)!!

dont worry its happening. i know someone involved with the project, though they are not very keen to divulge any info considering the implications of such a building in india with regards to the local press and civil society. they will release details only when its construction has reached a status of fait accompli

===================================================

I am not sure what such secrecy will achieve. It is equally likely that civil society will anyways file a PIL once they see a behemoth beginning to loom around them (say once abt 40 floors are ready). Or may be they may move the courts against granting the building an occupancy certificate even after the building is done and complete (in which case, the losses to DB and Hyatt will be a zillion times more, than if the troubles are settled out-of-court earlier on).

Beats me....

One more thing....where does DB think they are going to get the water supply for such a building?? Last I heard, Mumbai is under a 15% cut in '10, and it could get worse (20-30%) next year and in '12. Things have been promised to be better in '13, but then, I will take it with a pinch of salt.

courts are loathe to stop major constructions once they are built. anyways this one has all clearances thanks to a clever bit of legal work from db (they filed a case against themselves some years back, so now it would be double jeopardy)

the bigger problem from civil society for a builder is when it becomes emotive and then politicians get involved. its much more likely they will get involved when something is not yet built as opposed to somethings thats already up. i think the 'blow' of a 100+ storey building will be softened considerably by then with buildings like palais royale already built by then

also one db tower is not going to make much of a difference to the water demand of bombay. there are thousands of buildings being built all over the city and they all face the same problem in the end. this one is likely to be LEED certified as well, recycling its own waste water. middle vaitarna dam is under construction and two more are planned and should be under construction soon

i just did not get that bit. How did they file a case against themselves to solve this issue?

Dont see a PIL coming up against this.

Better design! WTF? it's so unique. It would be a shame if they don't stick to the latest design.

Yeah, its really mindblowing design. Elegant shape, perfect proportions, just beautiful. But also looks very complicated to construct, and somehow I doub't about its realisation, but I'd love to see it build with curent design. That would be something

btw why threads title is different from first post?
