CHICAGO (October 1, 2012) Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Park Hyatt Chennai, marking the 30th hotel in the Park Hyatt collection and the first Park Hyatt hotel to be introduced in the city of Chennai, known as the gateway to Southern India.

Designed as a serene and tranquil retreat for the astute business traveler, Park Hyatt Chennai is located next to the prestigious Governor’s residence and is also adjacent to the thriving green area of the Guindy National Park. A 15-minute drive from the city’s domestic and international airport, Park Hyatt Chennai enjoys close proximity to the new developments of OMR (Old Mahabalipuram Road), Sri Perumbudur and the Guindy Industrial Estate.

“The opening of Park Hyatt Chennai is a great day of pride for us,” said Yann Gillet, General Manager, Park Hyatt Chennai. “The hotel is truly a reflection of this great city with the art and design thoughtfully encompassing Indian heritage and culture. We’re thrilled to join the Park Hyatt portfolio as the 30th hotel and look forward to providing guests with an ambience of sophistication with service that is gracious and truly personalized.”

“We are proud to expand the Park Hyatt brand in India with the opening of Park Hyatt Chennai, which joins the newly opened Park Hyatt Hyderabad, as well as Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa,” said Peter Fulton, Manager Director, Hyatt – Southwest Asia. “This opening is reflective of the thoughtful growth we’re experiencing in India, as well as the growth of the brand in destinations that will ultimately build customer preference."

Design and Guestrooms

Park Hyatt Chennai features 201 luxury guestrooms, including 20 indulgent suites, all thoughtfully designed to create an inviting environment and contribute to the understated sophistication and mood of the hotel. Rich travertine marble floors and plush hand-tufted rugs are luxuries found in every guestroom, along with polished marble bathrooms with deep-soak bathtubs. In addition, all suites feature exquisite, relaxing stone plunge tubs.

The hotel embraces the serenity of the surrounding Guindy National Park with flowing landscapes and relaxing interiors, complemented by a graceful lily pond dotting the heart of the inner courtyard of the hotel. The elegant and chic interiors create a unique, luxurious and calming ambience, reflecting the quiet and refined side of Chennai. The hotel also showcases beautiful, custom-made art installations that have been curated around the concept of Indian textiles and heritage. The impressive series of installations have been set up to not just lend a distinct character to the spaces, but also to enhance and create an unparalleled guest experience that is synonymous with the Park Hyatt brand.

The urbane and relaxing interiors of this city spa feature six treatment rooms that overlook the tranquil greenery of the national reserves of Guindy. Spa treatments at Antahpura Spa have been inspired by legendary therapies from the illustrious lineage of Chettinad. Indigenous herbs and primordial beauty and wellness practices have been adapted to recreate a holistic spa experience for guests.
