Grand Hyatt Athens has been slated to open in Q3 of 2018, marking the entry of the Hyatt Corporation’s Grand Hyatt brand into Greece for the first time.
“We are thrilled to announce plans for the first Hyatt property in Athens with Henderson Park, Hines and Kokari,” said Takuya Aoyama, VP, Development for Eastern Europe, Russia & CIS at Hyatt.
“We have long sought to bring the Grand Hyatt brand’s celebratory luxury to the Greek capital. This deal represents a significant milestone in Southeast Europe, an important growth market for Hyatt with recent Hyatt development announcements in Turkey and Bulgaria.”
The 310-room hotel will be centrally located on Syngrou Avenue in Athens’ Koukaki district, close to golf courses, restaurants and within walking distance of Filopappos Hill.
Grand Hyatt Athens will be uniquely designed to reflect its Greek culture with dramatic architecture and innovative design. First-class accommodations will welcome guests along with a spectacular rooftop bar and restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool and a stunning view of the Acropolis. Additional amenities will include best-in-class food and beverage venues, more than 1,000 square metres of meeting space as well as a spa and fitness centre.
The Greek capital is one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations with over 4.5 million visitors a year. With its premium offerings and central location, Grand Hyatt Athens will appeal to business and leisure travellers who seek exceptional settings.
The hotel is currently undergoing a major renovation and will mark the second Hyatt hotel in Greece, joining its sister property Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki.
