Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) and JUEL Hospitality Limited, part of the JUEL Group, have signed a franchise agreement to create Hyatt Centric Malta, the second Hyatt-branded property on the island, alongside Hyatt Regency Malta located in the resort of St. Julian's.
The 160-room Hyatt Centric Malta is scheduled to open in early 2024. It will benefit from a central location, just a few steps from the beaches and a lively district. In addition to on-site dining facilities, the hotel will feature a rooftop terrace serving local cuisine, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center and over 400 square meters of flexible meeting space in two well-appointed halls.
The opening strengthens the presence of Hyatt Hotels' lifestyle brand in Europe. The Hyatt Centric Malta will join European properties in the brand's portfolio, including Hyatt Centric The Liberties Dublin, Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale, Hyatt Centric Murano Venice, Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid, Hyatt Centric Levent Istanbul and Hyatt Centric Cambridge.
"The Hyatt Centric brand is designed for modern travelers who want to be at the heart of the action, and we believe it will attract a diverse range of guests, including both visitors and locals, who wish to explore this year-round leisure destination. We are delighted to expand our presence in the European lifestyle market and to collaborate with JUEL Hospitality to create a hotel that captures the unique spirit of this tourist mecca." - Briana Swift, Director of Development at Hyatt
"In line with Malta's tourism objectives of providing exceptional accommodation options for travelers wishing to explore the island's attractions, we are committed to developing the Hyatt Centric Malta with a unique and authentic design that incorporates traditional Maltese elements." - Albert Galea, JUEL Group representative
