Hyatt enters Cape Town


A Hyatt Hotels Corporation affiliate has entered into a management agreement with South African real estate company Millat Properties for the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Cape Town.

Hyatt Regency Cape Town, a 137-room hotel, is expected to open in December 2020, bringing the total number of Hyatt-branded hotels across Africa to eight, with two in South Africa.

The new Hyatt Regency Cape Town will be rebranded from the former Hilton Cape Town City Centre.

Hyatt Regency Cape Town will bring the Hyatt Regency brand’s signature seamless, personalised service and energising experiences to business and leisure guests alike. The hotel is situated at the foot of Table Mountain,

The hotel will feature 137 rooms, including 15 suites, three food and beverage outlets, as well as leisure facilities including a fitness area and an outdoor pool. For corporate guests, the property offers 400 square meters of meeting space as well as an executive lounge.

The announcement of Hyatt Regency Cape Town follows expansion in Hyatt’s footprint in sub-Saharan Africa, fueled by the Hyatt Regency brand. Three Hyatt Regency hotels are already open in the sub-Saharan region: Hyatt Regency Johannesburg, Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam, The Kilimanjaro and Hyatt Regency Addis Ababa with two more scheduled openings for the Hyatt Regency brand over the next three years: Hyatt Regency Nairobi, Kenya and Hyatt Regency Lagos Ikeja, Nigeria.
