Located at the Blue Flag beach east of Limassol, the 300-room luxury resort comprises residential apartments and private villas covering an area of more than 861,100 square feet. The resorts will also be offering spa and fitness facilities along with an indoor and two outdoor pools. The resort will additionally offer five elevated food and beverage concepts as well as 15,000 square feet of event space.
Given the enormous scenic experience and the extraordinary offerings, the company is optimistic about not only attracting leisure travellers but also gaining popularity among business travellers, conference-goers and event attendees. It also stated that this project paves the path for growth in Hyatt’s existing and upcoming portfolio in Malta, Athens Thessaloniki and Izmir.
Takuya Aoyama, vice president, development for Europe and Africa, Hyatt, stated “Grand Hyatt Limassol represents a key element of our growth strategy in Europe as we continue to seek opportunities to extend our resort footprint in the Mediterranean.
Hyatt has been consistently trying to expand its presence worldwide in order to gain market share in the hospitality industry.
In 2019, the company opened Great Scotland Yard, Hyatt Centric Dublin, Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere and Hyatt Regency Chantilly in Europe. It also made four additions in Barcelona, Manchester and Frankfurt.
Going forward, the company has expansion plans in the Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.

Notably, the company intends to benefit from these expansions, thereby eventually boosting the business.
