Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with CES Pirie Hotel Pty LTd., an entity owned by Chip Eng Seng Corporation Limited, to develop a new Hyatt Regency in Adelaide.

The new 295-room hotel will make the return of a Hyatt-branded hotel to Adelaide, continuing the group's expansion in Australia. The hotel is expected to open in early 2023, with construction planned to commence in early 2020.

“We are grateful to work with CES Pirie Hotel on the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide and are excited to bring the Hyatt Regency brand, which has a strong legacy and following, back to this vibrant city,” said Hyatt's group president for Asia-Pacific, David Udell.

“Located in Adelaide’s city centre, the hotel will provide guests with the tools to stay connected and benefit from the hotel’s intuitive and personalized service.”

The Hyatt Regency Adelaide will be located on Pirie Street in Adelaide's CBD. When completed, the hotel will offer numerous facilities, including more than 750 square meters of event space, a Market Cafe, a Regency Club, swimming pool, fitness facilities, and a rooftop bar.

“The development of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide will mark an important re-entry into Adelaide for the brand and also fill a key gap in Hyatt’s domestic Australian network,” said Hyatt's vice president of real estate and development for Asia-Pacific, Monika Dubaj.

"The hotel is part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travellers as we expand in Australia, with new destinations such as Adelaide and Brisbane that will complement our current portfolio of seven hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.”
