Hyatt announced they’ll be opening their newest hotel in the Caribbean. The Hyatt Regency Coco Beach Resort will offer 486-room hotel with 93 branded residencies. Surprisingly, Hyatt currently only has select-service properties in Puerto Rico, so it’s nice to see the first full-service Hyatt property in Puerto Rico.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with Coco Hotel 1 LLC for a new hotel, expected to open July 2019 as a Hyatt affiliated hotel and then become Hyatt Regency Coco Beach Resort after an extensive renovation is completed this fall. The 486-room hotel with 93 branded residencies will be managed by Aimbridge Hospitality and signifies Hyatt’s continued brand growth on the island of Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean region. The hotel will be the brand’s only full-service property in Puerto Rico. The hotel will operate as The Resort at Coco Beach, a Hyatt affiliated hotel, from July 2019 until the renovation is completed.
The hotel will be situated on a 1,000-acre peninsula within a private development known as Coco Beach on the northeast coast of Puerto Rico that includes 36 holes of championship golf. In close proximity to San Juan’s Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, the hotel will offer guests approximately 37,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, spacious guestrooms including 93 upgraded suites with in-room whirlpool tubs and kitchenettes, a club lounge and locally inspired dining destinations. Prior to its significant redesign, renovation and rebrand, the hotel was Melia Coco Beach.
As a Hyatt Globalist and a big fan of beach resorts, I’m excited to hear that they’re opening an Andaz in Turks & Caicos as I’ve recently stayed at several of their new properties throughout the the Caribbean including the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Nassau, Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Mayaand the Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen.
