Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the official opening of Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, marking the first Mexican location for the Andaz brand, and the anticipated openings of Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa and Andaz Delhi later this week.
The three properties will join 13 other Andaz hotels, each celebrating the local culture and unique spirit of neighborhoods in diverse and culturally rich global gateway cities and top resort destinations around the world. With several more hotel openings in the pipeline, the Andaz brand provides global growth opportunities for Hyatt.
“Hyatt is committed to purposeful and meaningful growth,” said David Tarr, senior vice president of real estate and development, Hyatt. “With three Andaz hotels opening this week in very different parts of the world, and the recent opening of Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market, it’s clear the brand is a growth driver domestically and internationally for Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brands.”
“These hotels truly fulfill the spirit of the Andaz brand, weaving the sights, sounds and tastes of their surroundings into the experience and immersing guests in the local culture,” said Sandra Cordova Micek, global senior vice president of brands, Hyatt. “Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa, Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, and Andaz Delhi will create environments where guests leave feeling enriched, knowing their experience was much more than the expected hotel stay.”
Like all Andaz hotels, these properties will celebrate local culture and the spirit of their respective neighborhoods, bringing to life its history and personalities in unique and surprising ways. Now open and accepting reservations, Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya introduces guests to a hidden paradise. The resort’s breathtaking design reflects the native Mayan culture and brings to life locally inspired experiences and indigenous environment for guests, whether by exploring the lush mangrove preserve, relaxing in the 10,000 square-foot Naum Spa, sunbathing in one of three outdoor pools, or unwinding on the pristine white sanded Caribbean beach. Four unique restaurants and bars offer distinguished culinary experiences, serving fresh ingredients and showcasing authentic cooking techniques – all with stunning views of the pools, lagoon, and ocean. To ensure an authentic stay, the hotel has teamed up with a series of local artists, including Senkoe, a Riviera Maya graffiti artist, who was tapped to curate vibrant and colorful murals seen throughout the resort. They also offer a series of inspiring activities to allow guests to truly absorb Mayan culture, such as learning to speak the language or preparing the best tacos in a Tacology class.
Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa is situated on 23 acres of sweeping desert landscape at the base of Camelback Mountain. Signature restaurant Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen will feature an exhibition kitchen with a plancha and will serve contemporary Sonoran cuisine in small, sharable plates. Palo Verde Spa & Apothecary will offer guests seven treatment rooms and a customizable menu utilizing unique and indigenous ingredients, as well as the opportunity to invent their own concoctions at the Desert Blending Bar. Through an extensive artist in residence program in partnership with the nearby Cattle Track Arts community, guests will be able to interact, learn and create alongside local craftsman in painting, pottery, photography and more. The hotel is expected to open later this week.
Andaz Delhi will offer easy access to some of the city's most iconic monuments and gardens, fashion boutiques, arts and cultural centers and the vibrant city nightlife. Designed to capture the spirit of Delhi by renowned architect Bauer Latoza Studio from Chicago, and interior designer Virgile and Partners from London, the hotel will integrate traditional Indian elements, colors and flavors into a modern design inspired by the unique craftsmanship of India. Taking an innovative approach to restaurants and bars, Andaz Delhi will emphasize consciously sourced ingredients and local artisanal produce in the uniquely conceived European food hall – AnnaMaya. The ballroom is one of the largest indoor luxury wedding spaces in Delhi and will provide a blank canvas to customize and decorate the space based on the individuality and style of any guest. The unique Elephant Path will add a sense of drama to a traditional Indian wedding. The hotel is expected to open later this week.
