Hyatt launches its first hotel in Malta
Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today that a Hyatt subsidiary has entered into a franchise agreement with Bay Street Holdings Limited to develop the first Hyatt hotel in Malta. Located on the picturesque coastal destination of Julian’s, the 153-room resort is expected to open in 2021 and become the ideal destination for all occasions – from uninterrupted business meetings to memorable family holidays.
« We are delighted to announce the project for the first Hyatt brand property in Malta, a country rich in architecture and history and rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after destinations for business and leisure travel, » said Guido Frederich, Hyatt’s Regional Vice President of Development for Europe, « This is an excellent opportunity to strengthen Hyatt Regency’s current presence in Southern Europe, and we look forward to working with the highly experienced developers, Bay Street Holdings, to open a new exclusive hotel in the region. »
Increasing in popularity among holidaymakers and high-end business travellers, the number of Maltese tourists has doubled since 2010. More and more visitors are choosing to stay at the coastal destination of St. Julian’s because of its many shops, restaurants and entertainment.
Hyatt Regency Malta will be located a few minutes walk from the beach and marina, and less than 20 minutes from Malta International Airport and the UNESCO World Heritage City of Valletta. In addition, the hotel will offer modular event spaces and a five-storey underground car park, providing a stress-free environment for corporate events, meetings or other weddings.
