Hyatt announces plans for new Regency hotel in Adelaide

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced a management agreement to develop a new Hyatt Regency in Adelaide.

A Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with CES Pirie Hotel (SA) Pty Ltd., an entity wholly owned by Chip Eng Seng Corporation Limited, to develop the property.

The new 295-room hotel will mark the return of a Hyatt branded hotel to Adelaide.

With construction planned to commence in early 2020, Hyatt Regency Adelaide is expected to open in early 2023.

“We are grateful to work with CES Pirie Hotel on the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide and are excited to bring the Hyatt Regency brand, which has a strong legacy and following, back to this vibrant city,” Hyatt group president for the Asia Pacific, David Udell, said.

“Located in Adelaide’s city centre, the hotel will provide guests with the tools to stay connected and benefit from the hotel’s intuitive and personalised service.”

Hyatt Regency Adelaide will be located on Pirie Street in the centre of the city’s central business district, giving guests unparalleled access to major corporate and government offices as well as shopping and dining venues.

When completed, the hotel will offer facilities including more than 750 square meters of event space, a Market Café, a Regency Club, swimming pool, fitness facilities and a rooftop bar.

“The development … will mark an important re-entry into Adelaide for the brand and also fill a key gap in Hyatt’s domestic Australian network,” Hyatt’s vice president of real estate and development for APAC, Monika Dubaj, said.

“The hotel is part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travellers as we expand in Australia,” she said, adding developments in Adelaide and Brisbane will “complement our current portfolio of seven hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra”.
