UAE's Grand Hyatt Dubai to house 20,000sqm water park

New hotel is set to open in 2025 near Downtown Dubai

Hyatt’s global record pipeline of more than 127,000 rooms, incorporates some 70 properties spanning the group’s distinct brand collections within the EAME region. This includes the opening in early 2025 of the Grand Hyatt Dubai, which is set to launch the first fully-serviced, five-star water park minutes away from Downtown Dubai.

Spanning 20,000sqm, the park will feature 15 rides, a wave pool, a dedicated area for toddlers and small children, private cabanas and dining outlets. Available to guests staying at the property as well as visitors to Dubai, Hyatt is looking to position the property as “one of the most unique urban resorts in the world, a destination within a destination”.

Following a record year of deal signings in 2023, Hyatt affirms that more than half of its new properties in Europe, Africa and the Middle East (EAME) will serve the leisure sector.

Other notable openings targeting leisure visitors include Hyatt Centric Cairo West, set to open in the final quarter of 2024. Located near iconic landmarks, such as the Giza Pyramids and The Grand Egyptian Museum, the property will house an impressive collection of local art.

Additionally in Europe, Hyatt expects Zoëtry Halkidiki Resort & Spa and Park Hyatt London River Thames to open late 2024.

In capital and primary cities, the company is also poised to continue its growth momentum with additions like Andaz Doha and Thompson Rome, and is expanding its focus to resort destinations with future projects like Dreams Madeira Resort Spa & Marina, Alua Soul Costa Adeje or Miraval The Red Sea leading the pipeline.

“The region continues to demonstrate high growth potential and is among the top global growth markets for Hyatt,” said Hyatt president of EAME Javier Águila. “More than half of our current pipeline has a clear focus on leisure, either through brand affiliation or destination. This proportion represents our strong commitment to expand our luxury leisure presence complementing our current portfolio in capital cities and sought-after business hubs.

“Hyatt’s Inclusive Collection represents the largest luxury all-inclusive portfolio in the world and allows us to capture leisure growth opportunities in destinations new to Hyatt along the Mediterranean coast, the Black Sea and even in the Middle East,” added Águila.
