Hyatt Hotels Corp. is exporting its Grand Hyatt brand to Mexico, where it will open the Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort on the Riviera Maya in June, it announced last week.

Described by Hyatt as an "urban beach hotel," the new property will be located in downtown Playa del Carmen and will offer 314 guest rooms, three restaurants and bars, three infinity pools and a kids pool, a spa, a 24-hour fitness center, and over 15,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 5,768-square-foot ballroom.

"As the brand celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, we are thrilled to grow our Grand Hyatt brand presence in the region with the opening of Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort," said Hyatt Senior Vice President of Global Brands Sandra Cordova Micek. "Hyatt is committed to being the most preferred hospitality brand by opening in key locations where our guests are traveling, and we have openings planned in Mexico, the Bahamas, Brazil, and Colombia."

Grand Hyatt Baha Mar will open this summer, Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro in winter 2015, and Grand Hyatt Bogota in spring 2017.
