Hyatt announces opening of two Abu Dhabi properties in second half of 2011

With a wide range of world-class business and leisure facilities, both Hyatt hotels are located just minutes from the city centre and Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Abu Dhabi's Tourism Authority has said that it expects to receive 2.7 million visitors by 2012, with Abu Dhabi Corniche, Emirates Heritage Village, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Marina Circuit featuring prominently as key attractions.

"Abu Dhabi offers travellers year-round sunshine, pristine sandy beaches, world-class meeting facilities and traditional Arabian culture. Hyatt hotels in Abu Dhabi will be welcoming business and leisure guests alike as the two first properties will be opening in the second half of 2011. While Hyatt Capital Gate will be the capital's ideal premium business address, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas will offer guests a range of leisure activities located on a tranquil island in Abu Dhabi," said Thierry Bertin, Vice President Worldwide Sales – South West Asia, Hyatt International.

"Both our hotels are situated along the beautiful turquoise waters that surround Abu Dhabi and offer stunning views of the city's natural coastline. While Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotels and Villas offer an escape from the city, Hyatt Capital Gate is in itself, an escape within the city," continued Bertin.
