CHICAGO – Hyatt Hotels Corporation highlighted Hyatt’s expected growth trajectory for 2024 and beyond, across Europe, Africa and the Middle East (EAME), underscored by a record year of deal signings in 2023. Hyatt’s commitment to be the preferred brand for guests, customers and owners has resulted in a record pipeline of 127,000 rooms worldwide as of year-end 2023, with key markets including Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, and Greece. This record pipeline represents nearly 40% of existing rooms in the Hyatt portfolio.
Hyatt’s strategic brands growth includes plans for AluaSoul Costa Adeje, which will be an Inclusive Collection resort located in Tenerife, the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, and Palace de Muro, which will be a Destination by Hyatt property in the historic town of Alcúdia, Mallorca by the end of 2024. These latest planned projects in Spain, under Stoneweg’s ownership, build on another record year of brand growth for Hyatt in the region.
“We are incredibly pleased with the scaled growth we have been able to achieve for our brands throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East in 2023,” said Javier Águila, group president EAME, Hyatt. “Guided by our purpose of care, we believe our most exciting chapter is ahead of us, and we are committed to reinforcing our position as the preferred hospitality brand amongst guests, customers and owners.”
AluaSoul Costa Adeje, a 226-room resort, is slated to open in the last quarter of the year following an extensive renovation. The Inclusive Collection property is located on the beaches of the Adeje coast, in the South of Tenerife, and is ideal for guests seeking a fun-filled getaway. Palace de Muro, which will be a Destination by Hyatt property set to open in 2024, offers an oasis of calm for those looking to relax on beaches of crystal-clear water and white sand near the Albufera natural park. The 184-room resort is located on Muro Beach, Alcudia Bay, where guests are offered the ultimate indulgence, tailored to their every need. Both properties are in the process of being rebranded following a multi-property collaboration with Stoneweg.
Miguel Casas, Managing Director of Stoneweg Hospitality, says: “We are very excited to announce these exciting projects with Hyatt in Spain. The upcoming openings of AluaSoul Costa Adeje and Palace de Muro, are milestones that reflect our dedication to growth and excellence in hotel experiences. These Stoneweg properties not only strengthen Hyatt’s brand presence in the region, but also represent the realization of exceptional visions for our guests. We are excited for what’s to come and committed to delivering unforgettable experiences.”
