CHICAGO—A Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Fu Wah New Zealand for a Park Hyatt hotel in Auckland, New Zealand. Expected to open in 2017, Park Hyatt Auckland will mark Hyatt’s return to New Zealand, and the first Park Hyatt-branded hotel to open in Auckland.
“This has been an exciting year for the Park Hyatt brand, and we are honored to collaborate with Fu Wah New Zealand on this landmark luxury development,” said Ratnesh Verma, senior vice president, real estate and development, Asia Pacific, Hyatt. “Fu Wah New Zealand believes in the Park Hyatt brand, having recently purchased Park Hyatt Melbourne, and we are confident Park Hyatt Auckland will provide guests with the luxurious accommodations, culinary expertise, and high-quality service for which the Park Hyatt brand is known. We remain committed to growing the brand in culturally rich cities like Auckland.”
Park Hyatt Auckland will feature 190 guestrooms, three restaurants and bars, event spaces, a spa, a 25-meter pool, and a fitness center. Park Hyatt Auckland will be nestled in a prime waterfront location on Auckland Harbour, which is expected to undergo a major revitalization to turn the area into a world-class leisure, entertainment, culture, and dining destination.
The announcement of the Park Hyatt Auckland development complements a milestone year for the Park Hyatt brand globally, with the opening of Park Hyatt Vienna in June, followed by Park Hyatt New York in August. In addition to these recent openings, there are 16 previously announced Park Hyatt hotels currently in development around the world.
