Hangzhou Hua Pu Industrial Reopens Grand Hyatt Hangzhou Following Renovation and Transition From Hyatt Regency Hangzhou

USA, Chicago, Illinois. January 10, 2019

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Grand Hyatt Hangzhou, formerly Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, marking the first Grand Hyatt hotel in Zhejiang province and the 15th in China. Following an extensive 18-month redesign, the stylish 388-room hotel features luxury accommodations inspired by the best that Hangzhou has to offer.

“We are extremely grateful to Chairlady Lin and her team for their tireless work over the past years, to bring the world-famous Grand Hyatt brand to Zhejiang Province for the very first time,” said Stephen Ho, president, Greater China, global operations for Hyatt. “Thanks to their efforts, guests from across China and the world can now enjoy truly extraordinary moments for which the Grand Hyatt brand is known, while indulging themselves in the tranquil beauty of the West Lake, at a magnificent residence that is set to become a regional icon.”

West Lake—a UNESCO World Heritage site—is Hangzhou's most iconic attraction, having influenced countless poets and painters since the second century. Grand Hyatt Hangzhou enjoys a premier location on the east shore of West Lake within walking distance of Hubin district, the city's main business, shopping, and entertainment hub.

“Over the past decade, the hotel has been recognized as the preferred hotel to host major events, heads of state, and high-profile visitors to Hangzhou,” said Ms. Dior Lin, chairlady of the hotel's owning company, Hangzhou Hua Pu Industrial Co., Ltd. “As we commence our journey as Grand Hyatt Hangzhou, with its contemporary, vibrant and fashionable approach, we are confident this stunning hotel will be an iconic hotel in Hangzhou.”

Grand Hyatt Hangzhou features 388 rooms and suites, ranging in size from 366-2,500 square feet (34-240 square meters). Designed to amplify the breathtaking lake view, the rooms feature an indulgent, comforting mix of textures in the wallcoverings and soft furnishings with subtle Chinese design elements appearing in the desk chair and wall art.

Grand Hyatt Hangzhou's seven exceptional dining venues provide a culinary experience like no other, highlighted by creative menus featuring a variety of both global and local cuisines. Led by Executive Chef, Vincenzo Carbone, the culinary team strives to source the freshest ingredients—local and organic wherever possible—to create authentic dishes and an unforgettable dining experience.

With 35,520 square feet of lavish event space, outfitted with the latest audiovisual equipment and facilities, Grand Hyatt Hangzhou is confident that its conference and banqueting facilities now rank among the most sophisticated in the Zhejiang capital.

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program.  Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and  teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
