    EXCLUSIVE: Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi to open October 15:)

    Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi will open on October 15, making it the first hotel to launch on TDIC's Saadiyat Island development.

    Richard Riley, CEO of hotel owner Abu Dhabi National Hotels, told HotelierMiddleEast.com that the luxury Park Hyatt was “85% finished”.

    “This one will open on October 15 for sure. I will give the operator their notification on the 14th as per the contract that we will open on October 15,” said Riley in an exclusive interview.

    He said the resort, which is located on a nine-kilometre stretch of environmentally protected, natural sand beach, would be the largest Park Hyatt property in the world with 306 keys.

    “There is none bigger, it’s the biggest,” said Riley. “It’s a stunner and the beach is so, so beautiful.”
    ADNH is investing AED 1 billion in the Park Hyatt property, which will offer a minimum room size of 54m², four private villas and 11 secluded ryads, four F&B outlets, an Atarmia Spa and 1220m² of events and meeting space.

    “It’s a world class product,” added Riley.

    Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas will be managed by Stuart Deeson, formerly general manager at Park Hyatt Dubai.

    It will be the first of two hotels to be opened by ADNH this year, with the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal expected to open by the end of 2011.

    Too big for a PH, IMO. These are supposed to be boutique hotels able to offer personalized service. I think that will be pretty hard if most of the 306 rooms are occupied. For example, if a guest with no political clout wanted to talk to the GM, would they have a chance of getting through?

    They seem to be pretty proud to be that big! Nevertheless, the world's biggest Park Hyatt! What's next?;)
