751 451 wttc2

Hyatt Plans Grand Hyatt at The Red Sea Development in Saudi ArabiaShaura Island, Red Sea, Saudi Arabia, October 29, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with The Red Sea Development Company for a 430-room Grand Hyatt hotel on Shaura Island, the hub of the ambitious Red Sea Project on Saudi Arabia’s west coast. The luxury resort hotel will represent the largest of 11 hotels set to open on the island and will occupy a prime position within this innovative tourist development. Grand Hyatt The Red Sea will be the second Grand Hyatt hotel in the Kingdom and the seventh Grand Hyatt hotel in the Middle East, marking an important milestone in Hyatt’s growth strategy in the region.

Slated to open as part of phase one of the Red Sea Project, the property will be designed to reflect the bold and vibrant luxury synonymous with the Grand Hyatt brand, featuring sophisticated design, materials and decor inspired by the iconic elements present in the destination. Grand Hyatt The Red Sea will feature a striking architectural “coral bloom” design, a unique concept that resembles a bloom of coral in the sea from above, that will offer a sense of luxury that blends seamlessly with the natural environment. A tasteful mix of suites and large standard rooms will provide guests with a comfortable and upscale place from which to explore the area’s diverse ecosystem and endless attractions. World-class food and beverage venues and the wider amenities of the hub island, which will include a marina and an 18-hole championship golf course, will complete the luxury hotel experience within a breathtaking setting.

Located in close proximity to the soon to be developed Red Sea International Airport, Grand Hyatt The Red Sea will be easily accessible from both international and regional markets. It is the only Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) location to enjoy mild temperatures year-round and is home to one of the world’s largest barrier reefs, coupled with an abundance of flora and fauna, juxtaposed with a dramatic and awe-inspiring landscape with dramatic mountain ranges dotted with dormant volcanoes, turquoise lagoons and white beaches.

“Grand Hyatt The Red Sea represents a key milestone within Hyatt’s strategy to expand its luxury resort offering in the Middle East”, said Ludwig Bouldoukian, regional vice president of development for the Middle East and Africa. “It is an honor to be able to showcase the Grand Hyatt brand in one of the Kingdom’s most innovative tourism developments and become part of this historic moment. Grand Hyatt The Red Sea will be at the forefront of the project, helping shape the island’s unique identity and contribute to a destination that redefines the concept of sustainable luxury. The resort will be an extension of Hyatt’s expanding luxury brand offerings, enhancing the way we cater to today’s increasingly diverse travelers who are seeking captivating moments from what will be an iconic destination.”

The Red Sea Project is designed to set new standards in sustainability and expects to position Saudi Arabia firmly on the global tourism map. The luxury destination created around one of the world’s hidden natural treasures is committed to preserving and actively enhancing the natural environment which spans 10,800 square miles (28,000 square kilometers). It includes an archipelago of more than 90 untouched natural islands, as well as dormant volcanoes, desert, mountains, and cultural sites.

The destination is expected to be the first tourism project of its size to be powered solely by renewable energy, with avoided CO2 emissions to the atmosphere equivalent to at least half a million tons each year. Cars, helicopters, e-bikes, golf buggies, vans trucks, seaplanes and buses will all operate on hydrogen and electricity as part of a smart and sustainable mobility strategy. Sustainability and diversification represent an important facet of the government’s Vision 2030, to develop the region and attract international travelers.

The Red Sea Project is the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project and in order to deliver against our commitments, it is essential that we work with leading international brands like Hyatt. Grand Hyatt The Red Sea represents the largest hotel in Phase One and the centre piece of our hub island, Shaura”, said John Pagano, CEO at TRSDC. “I can’t think of a brand better placed to operate this unique property, given Hyatt’s global expertise and the enthusiasm demonstrated to engage with our sustainable and regenerative commitments. We look forward to welcoming guests to experience a new level of barefoot luxury tourism.”

The term “Hyatt” is used in this release for convenience to refer to Hyatt Hotels Corporation and/or one or more of its affiliates.

The project is being developed over 28,000 km2 of pristine lands and waters along Saudi Arabia’s west coast and includes a vast archipelago of more than 90 pristine islands. The destination also features sweeping desert dunes, mountain canyons, dormant volcanoes, and ancient cultural and heritage sites. It is designed to include hotels, residential properties, leisure, commercial and entertainment amenities, as well as supporting infrastructure that emphasizes renewable energy and water conservation and re-use, as well as a circular waste management system to achieve zero waste to landfill.

Miraval Resorts Launches Celebration of the Arts

1018 619 wttc2

Miraval Resorts Launches Celebration of the Arts - TRAVELINDEXArizona, United States, July 8, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Miraval Resorts, Hyatt’s destination spa brand with three award-winning resorts, today announces Celebration of the Arts, a new program designed to promote the therapeutic benefits of the arts. The Celebration of the Arts, which launches this summer at Miraval Arizona, Miraval Austin and Miraval Berkshires, will debut new art programming that is designed to encourage spiritual and emotional nourishment. The new activities will complement and raise awareness for the diverse, existing art programming available at Miraval resorts, which has been central to the brand’s wellness offerings for more than 25 years. As part of the program, Miraval resorts will also invite a celebrated local artist to stay in-residence at each of the three properties to create a mural for the resort and interact with guests as they observe the creative process.

“Miraval has long been an advocate of the arts and its powerful benefits of mindfulness,” said Susan Santiago, head of Miraval operations at Hyatt. “For years, the Miraval brand has championed the works of local artisans, from the sculpture collection at Miraval Arizona to the paintings within the halls of Miraval Berkshires, and has offered creative activities that allow guests to focus on the present moment and look inwards. We’re excited to launch the Celebration of the Arts this summer, which will further immerse our guests in the culture of their destination and help them cultivate meaningful relationships with themselves, other guests and our resident artists.”

Miraval Arizona

During the Celebration of the Arts, Miraval Arizona will invite Lucinda Hinojos to be artist-in-residence this summer. Lucinda, who is of Xicana, Apache and Yaqui descent, is a self-taught muralist and painter who began her arts career by curating underground art exhibits for local artists. She advocates for women’s and immigrant’s rights through her work, and she has frequently worked with immigrant rights organizations to organize art shows. From June 28 to July 23, Lucinda will design and bring to life a mural that embodies her artistic flair and values.

Guests at Miraval Arizona will be encouraged to explore their imagination and enhance their intuition through a myriad of programs, including Paint the Music, a thought-provoking workshop that uses music to immerse guests in an unconstrained and playful experience while guiding them to produce a personal piece of artwork. Guests will also be able to further expand their consciousness in another program titled Artistic Expression Under Glass¸ where they learn to embrace their artistic abilities and foster a greater sense of wellbeing through the art of reverse-painting, a technique that asks guests to work backwards and rethink their approach to accomplishing goals.

Miraval Austin

Self-taught artist Sadé Lawson will be the resident artist at Miraval Austin throughout August. Sadé, who channels the ambitious and creative energy of women in her life into her artwork, has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Austin since 2018. Using her creativity to process the world around her, Sadé harnesses the power of color to address topics from mental wellbeing and racial identity to hope and inspiration. During her stay at Miraval Austin, Sadé will design a mural by the resort’s Discovery Pool.

Coinciding with Sadé’s residency this summer, Miraval Austin will offer Mindful Mandala Rock Painting, a workshop where guests paint and sculpt mandalas, ancient circles that can be used to center oneself and connect with others. Guests will also be able to partake in a new class titled Suminigashi: The Art of Letting Go. During this activity, guests paint with ink on water, creating moving marble designs that flow without manipulation. This beautiful art form reminds guests to free themselves of expectation, a philosophy that mirrors the unrestricted strokes of ink as they glide above the water.

Miraval Berkshires

In August, painter and graphic designer Jesse Tobin McCauley will be featured as Miraval Berkshires’ artist-in-residence and create a mural in the tunnel that connects the main resort grounds with the Meadowview Farm and Barn. A resident of Pittsfield, Mass., Jesse studied art at Otis College of Art & Design and has worked as a graphic designer in Los Angeles, New York and the Berkshires. She sits on the board of the Berkshire Art Association, a non-profit organization that aims to increase local access to the arts, and is also part of Group W, an art collective that conceptualizes and holds large-scale exhibitions. Her artwork, which is often characterized by impactful bursts of saturated color, evokes a sense of whimsy and joy from its viewers.

At Miraval Berkshires, guests will be able to partake in the mural’s creation process through interactive chalkboard frames that invite guests to answer introspective questions. Prompts such as “What is your intention?” and “What are you grateful for?” will be displayed in the tunnel, and guests will be encouraged to write their answers on the chalkboards and reflect on their Miraval journey. Coinciding with Jesse’s residency, Miraval Berkshires will also launch a new program named Manifest Your Desires: A Vision Board Creation. During this activity, guests will utilize their creative spirit to construct a vision board, a visual representation of their goals and dreams actualized through imagery and artwork. This activity is intended to inspire and empower guests as they focus their intentions and transform them into reality.

About Miraval

Miraval Arizona in Tucson, Ariz. pioneered the destination wellness spa resort category more than 25 years ago with its comprehensive program of mindfulness activities, destination-inspired experiences and spa treatments that incorporate modalities from around the globe.  In 2017, Miraval joined the Hyatt portfolio bringing its in-depth approach to wellness to Hyatt guests and World of Hyatt members globally.
