Hyatt Hotels Corporation has launched The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, a global collection of unique and independent stay experiences.

According to the company, the Unbound Collection by Hyatt will include a portfolio of “new and existing upper-upscale and luxury properties that will maintain a distinct character while providing guests and owners Hyatt’s award-winning customer loyalty program, robust operational and marketing resources and trusted, quality brand”.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation President and CEO, Mark Hoplamazian, said the properties within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt – which will include historic urban gems, contemporary trend-setters, boutique hotels, resorts, and more – would have their own individual brand identities, free from constraint or convention.

“The Unbound Collection by Hyatt provides us with a myriad of opportunities to grow, not only in new markets, but also in places we know our guests want to go,” he said.

“The collection of properties will allow us to reach the modern traveler who seeks one-of-a-kind experiences, but also wants the reassurance and loyalty program that comes with our brand.

“What really excites us about The Unbound Collection by Hyatt is that this portfolio provides rich social currency through story-worthy, shareable experiences that guests will take with them long after their stay,” he said.

The Unbound Collection by Hyatt is launching with some top properties around the world, including The Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas; the Hôtel du Louvre in Paris, France; the Carmelo Resort and Spa in Carmelo, Uruguay; and the Coco Palms Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, which is expected to undergo a revitalization and re-open in spring 2018.

Hoplamazian said future hotels in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt would be equally story-worthy, whether it be through a fascinating past, an exclusive location, famous architecture and design, or an award-winning dining experience.

“We are committed to creating a portfolio that works for owners and provides them with flexibility, agility, and support, all while accentuating the best of each property and the experiences that make each truly extraordinary,” he said.
