Hyatt has big plans for India

India is one of the top three growth markets for Hyatt Hotels Corporation globally, and the hotel company seems to have a big plan to increase its presence in India by 2023.

With over 20 executed managed and franchised agreements, Hyatt will add more than 3,600 keys to its existing portfolio of 32 Hyatt-branded hotels across eight distinct brands in the country, including the Andaz, Alila, Park Hyatt, Grand HyattHyatt Regency, HyattHyatt Centric, and Hyatt Place brands. This announcement will bring the number of Hyatt-branded hotels in India to more than 50 by the end of 2023, resulting in a more diverse portfolio of hotel offerings in new and existing markets.

    • Grand Hyatt Jaipur

This is excellent news for the patrons of Hyatt Hotels in India. In 2021, World of Hyatt has also cut down its requirements to give away all their elite tiers at half the standard requirements, which means one can get the top-end Globalist status for just 30 nights (paid or redemption) this year.


While hotel openings are not cast in stone, but this looks like a very good coverage from Hyatt in India over the coming years. Competition Marriott is far ahead with over 120 hotels in India. Perhaps this is a good time to start patronising Hyatt in India so that one can get the benefits over the years ahead by hitting elite status in the coming days.

What do you think of Hyatt’s plans for growth in India?
