New Hyatt Hotels in Asia; Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu & Hyatt Regency Hainan
Hyatt is continuing its expansion in Asia and has announced two new openings in China and Malaysia. The first is the Hyatt Regency Hainan Ocean Paradise Resort, and the other is the Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu.
Hyatt Regency Hainan Ocean Paradise Resort
Hyatt Regency Hainan Ocean Paradise Resort is the stunning centerpiece of the new Hainan R&F Ocean Paradise, which is a large-scale, integrated resort that consists of Hainan R&F Ocean Paradise Resort, R&F Water Park and various marine-themed hotels. With a refreshing ocean-inspired style and direct access to the Hainan R&F Ocean Paradise theme park, the hotel is designed to offer guests a place of connection.
The hotel’s idyllic coastal vantage is also perfect for adventures to the best of Sanya’s islands, shopping and dining, including Nanwan Monkey Islet and Sanya International Duty Free Shopping Complex. The property is a one-hour drive from Sanya Phoenix International Airport.
The hotel’s 1,000 guestrooms, including 29 suites with the option of connecting twin-bed rooms, welcome guests with the comforts of home and enchanting spirit of the ocean. Undulating walls reflecting the ocean, natural textures and aquamarine accents convey a refreshing ambience. Families can experience the 108 Family Rooms, consisting of 625 square feet (58 square meters) with fun sleeping caves for kids. All rooms offer a private balcony to enjoy stunning views of the ocean, Ocean Paradise Resort, mountain or garden. Designed for guests to relax and recharge, each room includes premium amenities including in-room espresso machines and MyCast for the ultimate streaming experience directly from a phone or tablet to the TV.
Guests staying in Regency Club rooms can enjoy access to the Regency Club and terrace on the 3rd floor. The spacious lounge, inspired by the patterns of swirling rockpools, provides express check-in and check-out services, coffee, refreshments and evening cocktails. Use of the Regency Club meeting room for one hour per day is also complimentary for Regency Club guests with advance booking required.
Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu
Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu marks the debut of Hyatt’s rapidly growing lifestyle brand in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. The 222-room hotel is centrally located in the heart of the city’s lively dining and entertainment district, providing a convenient homebase for adventurous explorers and local residents to discover authentic experiences and hidden gems in the coastal capital of Malaysia’s Sabah state on the island of Borneo.
The 23-story hotel features modern guestrooms with balconies and is crowned with an infinity pool, duplex restaurant and bar on the rooftop, offering sweeping views overlooking Signal Hill, the islands at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and the South China Sea. Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu is steps away from shopping hotspots and the Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal from which guests can take a short 20-minute boat trip to surrounding islands to enjoy white sandy beaches and underwater activities. The hotel is conveniently located for business travelers with its close proximity to Sabah International Convention Centre, a sports complex and a university. Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) is a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
Set against the lush backdrop of Signal Hill, the hotel’s contemporary, inviting architecture and interiors by globally renowned architect Kengo Kuma reflect the heritage of Sabah. The interior design is inspired by the majestic jungles of Borneo, with bamboo found in the lobby representing the vegetation in the forest floor while the greenery-accented rooftop creates the sense of being at the canopy overlooking the blue waters and verdant hills.
The showstopping double-edged infinity rooftop pool on level 23 offers an incredible site of the hills connecting to the sea.
