The announcement was made during the Arabian Travel Market trade show in Dubai’s World Trade Centre.

Hyatt’s regional VP of development, Middle East and North Africa, Ludwig Bouldoukian, said the property would attract travellers looking to fully “immerse themselves” in Dubai.

“Hyatt is committed to thoughtfully introducing brands to new places and providing meaningful experiences for each and every guest,” said Bouldoukian. “We believe that the globally renowned Palm Jumeirah provides the ideal setting to realise this vision.”

As well as the Andaz hotel in Dubai, a second property is also under development at the beachside destination La Mer, which is set to open in 2020.

Hyatt Centric La Mer Dubai will mark the first property under the Hyatt Centric lifestyle brand in the UAE.
