Hyatt has revealed plans to enter Pakistan with the launch of four new hotels across the country.
The company has signed an agreement with developer Bahria Town for a Grand Hyatt hotel in the Pakistani capital Islamabad, along with three Hyatt Regency properties in the major cities of Karachi, Lahore and Rawalpindi.
“We look forward to collaborating with the Bahria team to open the first Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency hotels in Pakistan,” said Peter Norman, Hyatt’s senior vice president of acquisitions & development for Europe, Africa, Middle East & Southwest Asia. “Following last year’s announcement for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, we are optimistic about the growth of Hyatt’s brands in Pakistan.”
Hyatt’s first Pakistani hotel is due to open in 2021. Hyatt Regency Lahore will bring a range of facilities to the Punjabi city, including several F&B outlets, conference and banqueting space and a private club featuring tennis courts.
Then a year later in 2022, the 165-room Hyatt Regency Rawalpindi will open in the northern city, offering multiple F&B outlets and more than 1,100m² of meeting space. And in 2023 the Hyatt Regency hotel will make its debut in Pakistan’s largest city; Hyatt Regency Karachi will offer approximately 200 rooms, a restaurant, lounge and more than 1,600m² of function space.
Also in 2023, Hyatt will open what is expected to be one of the top hotels in Pakistan’s capital city. Grand Hyatt Islamabad will offer 400 rooms, seven restaurants and bars, two ballrooms, seven meeting rooms, a spa, fitness facilities, a kids’ club and private club. Located 30 minutes from the city centre, the property will become the first internationally-branded golf resort in Pakistan.
Hyatt is already present in three South Asian countries – India, Nepal and the Maldives – and also plans to enter Sri Lanka in the coming years.
