Hyatt Hotel’s affiliate has joined hands with Piccadily Hotels Private Limited to launch two new Hyatt Regency hotels in India. Located in major Indian commercial hubs, the hotels may prove to be good choice for business flyers on flights to India.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation, the worldwide premium hotel brand revealed in its press release on the 25th April 2012 that one of its affiliates has joined hands with Piccadily Hotels Private Limited for the launch of two new Hyatt Regency hotels in India.
The press release further revealed that the new Hyatt Regency hotels will be located in Indian business travel destinations of Gurgaon and Ludhiana. With the addition of these two new hotels located at the major IT and manufacturing hubs based in North India, the total number of Hyatt-branded hotels under development in India will increase to 55.
Ratnesh Verma, senior vice president of real estate and development for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific, said, “India continues to be a core focus for Hyatt, and we are proud to be working with Piccadily Hotels. The Hyatt Regency brand is a perfect fit for the Gurgaon and Ludhiana markets because they are both emerging destinations for business travelers. The extensive meeting facilities at Hyatt Regency Gurgaon will position the hotel as a preferred meeting, convention and group destination, and Hyatt Regency Ludhiana is second Hyatt-branded full service hotel under development in the state of Punjab, joining Hyatt Regency Chandigarh.”
Peter Fulton, managing director for Hyatt International, South West Asia, said, “We are delighted that Hyatt Regency Gurgaon and Hyatt Regency Ludhiana are expected to open later this year. Hyatt Regency was the first brand from our portfolio to enter India thirty years ago with the hotel in Delhi.”
Though the new luxurious Hyatt branches may not gain much attention of the budget holiday makers who prefer booking with airline tickets on cheap flights to India, they are sure to catch the fancy of the ever-increasing influx of corporate travellers and luxury seekers on flights to India for business deals and leisure holiday tours.
“As India continues to grow and develop, we believe there will be significant
Opportunity in this market to expand representation in urban, suburban, airport, convention, and vacation destinations to meet the needs of the increasing number of business and leisure travelers” observed Peter Fulton.
Hyatt Regency Gurgaon
Expected to open sometime this year, the Hyatt Regency Gurgaon located near Gurgaon’s Manesar industrial corridor will feature 452 guestrooms. Furthermore, the hotel will also offer more than 42,700 sq ft of meeting space, including a 24,000 sq ft ballroom. The business facilities of Hyatt Regency Gurgaon will suit the meeting, conference and event requirements of nearby international corporations.
Additionally, the hotel will also feature a lobby lounge, a three-meal multi-cuisine restaurant and two specialty restaurants, a bar, a gourmet store, a four-treatment room spa, a fitness centre, a swimming pool, and the Regency Club lounge.
Due to its close proximity to various commercial centres and Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, Hyatt Regency Gurgaon would definitely attract high number of corporate travellers who book airline tickets on flights to India and head to this business district.
Hyatt Regency Ludhiana
Situated at Ludhiana’s commercial corridor, Ferozepur Road, Hyatt Regency Ludhiana is located in the close proximity to the Ludhiana’s leading shopping and commercial developments.

With so much and more on offer at the two upcoming Hyatt properties, be it the business executives or travel buffs booking cheap flights to India, all seem to have added opportunities to savour the warm hospitality of this celebrated hotel brand.
